Best of 2011: Fashion Bombshell of the Year
By Claire

Though we cover celebrity style on the daily, the true stars are our Bombshells of the Day.
Stylistas from all over the world submit their pix to be examined by an exacting panel of anonymous judges. Not every Bombshell is a crowd favorite, but these six stood out from the pack.

Marley from New Jersey:
Marley caught our eyes thanks to her supremely versatile style. In addition to flaunting everything from poodle skirts to halter dresses, she showed dexterity with her hair, rocking long braids, curly ‘do’s, and cropped cuts.

77% of 1,258 votes secured her spot as Bomshell of the Week, and reader Sticky-n-Sweet said, “I love it! Kinda retro, kinda avant garde, hair and makeup are flawless!”

Fly Won from Indiana

Fly Won made a splash thanks to her colorful and vintage inspired looks, along with her unquestionable confidence.

Sun.kissed said, “Cute! Loves the colorful blazers, the corset, and bold silver earrings.”

Patience from Zimbabwe

Zimbabwe native Patience currently kicks it in Iowa, but still keeps it fly by way of her blog Her bright colored shifts, patterned tights, and designer accessories secured her a whopping 90% “Hot!” rating out of 1,453 votes.

African Mami exclaimed, “She BAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAD!!!! That yellow dress is bananas, that orange get up is sexy! Yo she shut it down!!! Thanks for repping Africa real well mama!” OK!

Karen from London

Though Karen from is already a well known blogger, a few weeks ago she was officially crowned a Fashion Bombshell.

Reader A-Danielle said, “Breath of fresh air,” and Antoinette added, “Amazing style! Loves it.”

Naja from New Jersey

Naja rocked our Bombshell feature with over 140 comments and 1,379 votes. Her vibrant hued outfits and electric smile made her a certified Fashion Bomb favorite.

LocalCeleb gushed, “I like.. she can really put her fashion together well, LOVE her shoes,” and DCChic added, “I like how she dresses for her body type, most things I would wear, and her shoes are on point!”

Olori Swank from Atlanta

As a stylist, blogger, and editor, Olori Swank knows how to put pieces together to make them shine.

Raycho_and screamed, “She is giving me LIIIIIIIIIIIIIFFFFFFFFFFFFEEEEEEEEEEEE,” and The.Absolute.Most said, “So much freaking style! Representing the A…!”

Who should be Bombshell of the year?

  11. Dom says:

    I’ll give this one to Patience. I like a few aspects from each of the bombers, and I also dislike a few aspects of their style. Patience has the most coordinated and well edited look of all the bombshells. She looks classy and ladylike.

    Congrats to all the nominees though, and happy holidays all!

  12. ShonaVIxen says:

    Olori Swank

  21. Nunyabizniz says:

    Occupy Patience’s Fashion sense That made me ctfu…

    But yeah I really like all of the bombshells. I voted for Patience though, her looks are much more relatable to me, her style is polished and she is an all around gorge girl.
    my next fave is Olori, girl is all kinda fierce and confident. I heart her, but some of her outfits are one gust away from fashion catastrophe! LOL

  22. Kahalia says:

    THOSE are clothes you can LIVE IN– not a LoOk” for a fashion shoot!
    Marley’s style is on point, put together and wearable!
    Bonus:She changes up her hair. Something you don’t normally get if your doing a one day fashion shoot…

  23. Jen says:

    Loved them all but I have to go with Naja because I heart her as a person as well!

  24. bougiehippie says:

    Good pics! Just don’t like everyone’s hair.

  25. Dee says:

    ARGH! Talk about hard to decided. Patience gets my vote in the end.

  26. Brittany says:

    I don’t like these options, but I don’t know who I would have chosen.

  27. zimbabwechic says:

    Patience and Naja are the ones I really loved

  32. Jama says:

    I think it’s a tight race between Olori and Patience. Although I want to rep for my African sista, I have to recognize Olori’s versatility and unique pieces.

  33. COCO says:

    I dont agree with the nominations. NESHA from texas was better than all of them. Go back and take a looksy

  34. Naja says:

    Oh WOW, thanks so much to even be nominated. I am honored to be in such great company of these stylish DIVAs!

  35. FashionOne says:

    Ok Olori it is!!!

  38. WOW…all these ladies are amazing…it was between two of these divas for me…..but my vote went to Olori….I kinda have a style-crush on Ms. Swank :-)

  40. Anonymous says:

    I see you Flywon

  41. Jinx Moneypenny says:

    Ooh lord, now I’m torn. :(

  42. sun.kissed says:

    Oh my! So many good ones to choose from. It was a toss up between Olori and Naja, I went with Naja because I can’t get with Ms. Swank’s blue hair, loves her style though. I also love Patience and follow her blog. Fly Won shut it down too! Ugh, this was TOUGH.

  43. TheDoll says:

    I went w/ Patience. Olori is dope but that hair is the worst & the last skirt was ridiculously short.

  44. ladyluo says:

    Although I love Patience, Olori took more fashion risks so I give this to Olori. And I love her blog

  45. kua says:

    Patience….That was easy!

  46. Daisy says:

    I was trying to decide between Patience and Olori. Although my style favors Patience more when I dress up, I love Olori’s edginess, although Patience’s no wallflower!

  47. Livi says:

    All of the ladies have style Marley being my second choice but …Olori from the A happens to be my fav !! I like how risky she is. I still visit her blog for inspiration from time to time & love her online shop !. But kudos to all the fashionistas !! ….Happy Holidays everyone !! : D

  48. Jaz says:

    SWANK! SWANK! SWANK! Olori Swank hands down. Point blank period. Lol j/k but yes OLORI SWANK!

  49. DivaFabulosa says:

    This was tough, but I voted Olori Swank. You have to have some serious confidence to rock that hair style. I love it!!! I agree with some of the other comments, their were better Bombshells featured that weren’t nominated. I like Marley & Patience style as well.
