• Best of 2013: Fashion Bombshell of the Year

    While you guys are generally lukewarm about Fashion Bombers, you go in and let have for our Fashion Bombshells! Whether nice or nasty, you have no issue voicing your opinions.

    For Best of 2013, we’re highlighting those Bombshells who made it on your nice lists with flying colors. It was actually really hard to whittle down the list, though we did decide upon 10 finalists.
    In no particular order…

    4. Stella from Maryland
    Prints and patterns carried punch with Stella from Maryland’s nuanced selection of pictures.
    The blogger from Jadore-Fashion.com offered unbridled variety, including a few (fly) maternity pix to boot! Like2Smize appreciated the diversity, writing, “The hands down BEST BOMBSHELL in a very long time. She is great…I sense a deeper understanding of color, pattern, body-type appropriateness and proportion than we usually see here. Those things are key to being a true BOMBSHELL. And a bomb lip color doesn’t hurt either. WERK Mother Nigeria!”

    5. Alicia from NYC
    Alicia first appeared on our computer screams back in January–clearly her looks were worth remembering!
    The Advertising Exec’s outfits skewed corporate with a cute twist, and you guys went gaga, offering her a 80% ‘Bombshell’ vote out of 1,535 ballots! Soul Touch typed, “Bombshell. Great look, great style, great body, great legs.” Agreed!

    6. Tiffany from Arizona
    Tiffany tantalized viewers with her spot on trends and creative combinations, making her a certified favorite and fixture in our How Do You Wear It? Section.
    From body hugging skirts to mixed prints combos, the blogger for The-Werk-Place.com brought it each time. 92% of 1,657 people declared, “Finally! Now This is a Bombshell!”, and Loni declared, “I am so in love! This is fashion. She is everything. Thank you Tiffany!!!”
