We’re kicking off our Best of 2012 superlatives with our Most Improved Fashionista, taking a look at the lady whose style has evolved the most over the year:
Check out who received the most nominations.
1. Khloe Kardashian
This year saw Khloe Kardashian with a new X Factor gig, and a renewed svelte look to boot.
Aided by superstar stylist Monica Rose, Khloe captured our attention in Dolce & Gabbana lace, staight-off-the-runway David Koma frocks, and, of course, spiked Christian Louboutin pumps.
You ladies have responded in kind, with Bella B effusing, “Gorgeous!!! Khloe’s style has been out of the park during this whole taping” and Style is My Obsession adding, “Khloe is looking so chic and fit these days. Loving her new confidence and style.”
True. But Khloe has always been kinda fly…!
At any rate, review her best looks of the year here.
As soon as Brandy released her new album, Two Eleven, the songstress stormed the scene, working music videos and performances in a potpourri of nuanced ensembles sprinkled with lots of labels.
Her Put it Down video was styled in Balenciaga, Giuseppe Zanotti, and Roberto Cavalli.
She took her look to real life in a mix of Kenzo separates, Proenza Schouler pieces, Mary Katrantzou knits, and Stella McCartney must haves.
We’ve been totally on board with Brandy’s chic evolution.
She’s definitely improved since 2011…
Can’t wait to see what she does next. See more of Brandy here.
Once Beyonce aka BaddieBey joined Instagram, her fans were able to see a more fashionable side of the already accomplished songstress.
She titillated fans with her impromptu poses, and her quirky/cool mix of J.Crew paisley, brocade Marni, Mary Katrantzou dresses, and comic printed 3.1 Phillip Lim.
Sure, she works it in her own way when out and about, but the true budding BaddieBey fashionista has found a home on Instagram.

4. Teyana Taylor
Teyana Taylor has also garnered a following on Instagram, flaunting her enviable frame in high slit dresses and crop tops.
The once confirmed Tomboy is now letting her inner feline out, to the delight of her 565,000 followers.
On any given day, you’ll find her in a low cut, body hugging dress, a snapback and close fit pants, or baggy trousers and an abbreviated top.
She’s blossomed beautifully, and is leaving her mark in her own way.
Take a look at how she used to rock:

5. Keyshia Cole
Working with Former Bombshell of the Year and stylist Olori Swank, Keyshia Cole has certainly stepped it up, working both edgy and tailored ensembles.
From Jimmy Choo Teazer sandals to Mary Katrantzou jackets, Keyshia kept it interesting in 2012 with a host of statement pieces.
This year also saw Keyshia designing a bit on her own, collaborating on a line of heels with Steve Madden.
It’s a far cry from her older looks:
