FASHION WEARABOUTS: THE FASHIONABLE LADIES OF 2013

Can you believe 2013 is almost over?! Seems like it was just yesterday that I was critiquing the looks of  some of the most fashionable stars of the year. As the year comes to a close, let’s take a look back at a few ladies who made a stylish presence wherever they went. From the red carpet to running errands, these fabulous ladies put the fashion in fashionista. You may not have always liked what they wore but their undeniable star quality shined on in every way possible.

KERRY WASHINGTONA Designer’s Darling

You can’t have a fashion list without the brilliantly talented Kerry Washington. On and off screen Kerry has proven to be every designer’s dream often playing dress up in straight-off-the-runway ensembles as Scandal’s Olivia Pope. And on the red carpet Ms. Washington emits grace and poise as any leading lady should, appearing on countless Best Dressed lists in some of the latest looks of the season.

Nicole Richie didn’t disappoint at all this year. When I first decided to put this list together, she was the first person that came to mind. Gone are the trashy chic days as part of the Paris & Nicole Simple Life circus. Nicole became a fashionista years ago and she constantly proves her style talent in anything she wears.

2013 was the year of transformation for Ms. Gomez shedding her girl next door image for a more lady like, high fashion approach. The classy starlet wowed us in a variety of fashions ranging from Atelier Versace to Dolce & Gabbana, tailored suits to floor length gowns. Singlehandedly proving that she is the exception in a sea of child stars gone bad.

RIHANNAThe Rebellious Risk Taker

Rihanna was recently appointed as the face of Balmain’s Spring 2014 ad campaign, so it should come as no surprise that she graces this list. Always the head turner, Ms. Fenty plays by her own rules when it comes to fashion, opting for glamorous dresses one day and sweatpants the next. A chameleon in her own right, she changes hair colors and styles in a blink of an eye. Her rebellious yet playful attitude has gotten her very far in the fashion world, with a successful clothing line with the River Island and an extensive partnership with MAC cosmetics.

KIM KARDASHIAN–  The Monochromatic Mama

What a sight! Kim ditched her usual colors for a brighter one,in a mustard Max Mara coat and Tom Ford sandals.

The other half of Kimye has had quite the year. From announcing her pregnancy to giving birth to getting engaged, and her fashion choices have been in the forefront the entire time. Kim managed to make traditional maternity wear a thing of the past by opting for plunging necklines and curve hugging skirts and dresses. The influence from her better half prompted her to do a complete style makeover, losing her wardrobe of vibrant colors and gaining a more demure, neutral color palatte, usually consisting of blacks, whites, and beige.

MIRANDA KERRThe Street Style SupermodelMiranda Kerr 1

From the catwalk to the sidewalk, Miranda Kerr always gets it right! The Australian stunner has wowed us on the runways and on many magazine covers, but I really took notice when I saw various pictures of her out and about without a fashion care in the world. The Queen of Street Style proves that true style is effortless, a lesson that many women can learn.

Are these 6 ladies truly fashionistas or is it the workings of an excellent stylist? Let’s just say a little bit of both!

Here’s to a stylish 2014!

    • Nicole Richie in Pucci is one of my favorite looks by far! I’m glad you liked it! Thank you for checking out the post! Much appreciated! Happy New Year!

    • 100% agree! Balmain always has the most intricate details. Pure Perfection! Thank you so much for stopping by! 🙂

    • I look forward to the end of this year so I can tally up who belongs on the list for 2014. I’ve already had my eye on a few new “fashionable ladies” that I will definitely be incorporating in this year’s list. Miranda Kerr would have to be my favorite, her street style fits my personality and style perfectly! But, sometimes I like to let out my inner “bad gal” like Ms. Fenty 😉

There's nothing more stylish than an opinion!
