Best of 2011: Final Results

So the votes have been cast for our fabulous Best of 2011 series!
Let’s take a look at who rocked each category:

1. Fashionista of the Year.

Solange Knowles

The songstress, DJ, and all around fly stylista captured 40% of your votes, and 100% of your hearts. Bella said, “SOLANGE! She is versatile and makes her style look so effortless.”

Valerie added, “SOLANGE without a doubt!! She absolutely dominated in terms of being effortlessly chic this year. Confident, edgy, elegant, etc. – she has embraced every trend and even brought back trends that weren’t even relevant until she rocked it. ” Agreed!

2. Most Fashionable Man.

Kanye West

Was there ever any doubt? For the third year in a row, the Louis Vuitton don has snagged our most fashionable male title.

The man takes risks that work, and isn’t afraid to step outside the sartorial box. From prints to kilts, blouses to button ups, he has an eye for style. Kudos, Kanye, Kudos.

3. Beauty Diva of the Year.


We may not have taken to all her fashion choices this year, but our Bajan babe still holds it down in the beauty department.

She can wear her hair curly, crimped, or straight; long, short, or mid length; red, brown, or blonde….and still look flawless. And her makeup? Girl….

Sure, it doesn’t hurt that she’s cute as a button. But mainly we adore her beauty game because she tries new, bold things that are still relatable enough to spark trends, inspire movements, and mobilize Rihanna navies.

4. Model of the Year

Joan Smalls

There’s no denying that Joan Smalls had the best year ever.

Gucci Fall 2011

She’s dazzled and inspired houses from Gucci to Chanel, and walked every catwalk from Givenchy to Balmain to Louis Vuitton.

Work, bish!

5. Fashion Bombshell of the Year.

Olori Swank from Atlanta

It was a tough choice for many of you, but Olori Swank from the A yanked the title of our Bombshell of the Year.

Liz commented, “Loving Olori Swank’s overall style. From head to toe she is killin it!!!”

Caramel Mimi added, “I would rock all of Olori’s fits! Luvs it!”

6. Fashion Bomber of the Year.

Kaine from Texas

Our Texas Bomber won in a landslide, securing a whopping 55% of your votes.

Most of you liked his simple sophistication and tailored looks. Kloset Lover gushed, “Kaine…he’s classic and class cannot be bought nor taught! His look will look good 25 years from now.”

7. Outfit of the Year

Rihanna in BCBG Max Azria

The all white ensemble Rihanna chose for the 2011 Billboard awards was fresh, sophisticated, and simple. From her hair down to her nude Louboutins, Rih exuded effortless chic.

Hair, makeup, divalicious stare? Check, check, and check.
