There was A LOT of awesome fashion this year. So many red carpets, so many moments. (Lady Gaga arriving to the Grammys in an egg? Pippa’s scene-stealing backside?) Here’s how the best of the best breaks down.
BEST AGE DEFYING STYLE
WHO: Jennifer Lopez
WHY: One hot mama! Super short minis and gravity defying plunging necklines at 42 years old. She has rewritten the rules and redefined how a woman in her forties dresses. In fact, she looks better than half the women her age. I got razzed at work because I would tune into “Idol” just to see what she would wear, but I love her style. She keeps things interesting.
BEST CASUAL STYLE
WHO: Jennifer Aniston
WHY: She doesn’t stray very far from her go-to staples like tank tops, cargo pants, leather jackets and motorcycle boots. You know what? It works. Why mess with perfection?
BEST SEXY STYLE
WHO: Sofia Vergara
WHY: With a body like hers, she can’t help but be sexy. But the thing I love about Sofia is that she is never vulgar. She plays up her assets, but doesn’t expose too much. That’s a true lady.
BEST CLASSIC STYLE
WHO: Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge
WHY: Even under enormous pressure to look perfect, Kate makes it all look so easy. Elegant and classy no matter if she’s wearing high fashion or clothes from the high street, she got off to a stylish start. Yes, her wedding dress was gorgeous.
BEST MOMMY-TO-BE STYLE
WHY: She still rocks 5-inch heels as well as high end designers like Lanvin, Dolce & Gabbana and Roberto Cavalli. I wish I had her “maternity” style when I was pregnant!
BEST HIP MOMMY STYLE
WHO: Gwen Stefani
WHY: I’ve seen her in action at the playground myself…wearing fierce riding boots and jacket…with her signature red lipstick and not a hair out of place. I love her leather jackets and edgy shoes too.
BEST OUTRAGEOUS STYLE
WHO: Gaga, of course
WHY: No one even comes close to the over-the-top ensembles she comes up with. I give her lots of credit for being extremely creative.
BEST NEWCOMER STYLE
WHO: Hailee Steinfeld
WHY: The “True Grit” star and Oscar nominee wowed on red carpet after red carpet with her spot-on and age-appropriate style. At just 14, she even became the face of Miu Miu.
BEST GUY STYLE
WHO: David Beckham
WHY: Whether casual cool or red carpet handsome, he’s hands down the most suave dresser around.
