• Best of 2012: And the Winners Are…

    The votes have been cast, and your comments heard.

    Take a look at who you voted in for Best of 2012.

    Fashionista of the Year: Solange Knowles

    Solange landed on Vogue’s Best Dressed list two years in a row, and now she’s captured her 2nd Fashionista of the Year title from The Fashion Bomb!

    Young Knowles received 46% of your 1,070 votes. SMV typed, “Solange stood out for me in 2012. The fro, the prints, it just worked. So she gets my vote!”

    2. Most Fashionable Man: Amaré Stoudemire and Idris Elba

    Amaré Stoudemire and Idris Elba were tied for most fashionable man, as they both received 20% of 731 votes. I have a feeling Amaré won due to his stylish penchants…

    And Idris triumphed thanks to his good looks (and the sharp silhouette he cuts in a suit).

    Either way, they’re both very deserving of the title.

    Congrats, guys!
    3. Fashion Bombshell of the Year: Zeinabou from Miami

    Though some of you felt we neglected to include a few standout Bombshells, 32% out of 1,746 votes were 100% sure of Miami native Zeinabou’s Bombshell status.

    4. Fashion Bomber of the Year: Davidson from New York

    Are we surprised? Davidson from New York captured your hearts and minds the moment he first submitted his pictures. The real estate investor is now dipping his toe into design, starting with a suiting line called P.Frere.

    I predict it’ll be hot!

    5. Beauty Diva of the Year: Rihanna

    We might not always love her style choices, but Rihanna’s beauty endures.

    Few ladies can rock any cut or color and still look gorgeous.

    Rih Rih killed it this year, and will continue to dominate the beauty game for years to come.

    6. Model of the Year: Joan Smalls

    Model.com’s #1 model is also our model of the year for the 2nd year in a row.

    As long as she continues to grace magazine covers and stomp every runway, she’ll be the best in our book!

    7. Designer of the Year: Givenchy by Riccardo Tisci

    Givenchy was by far the most popular brand in 2012, and 26% of you confirmed it with your votes.

    8. Outfit of the Year: Rihanna in Armani at the Grammys

    Rihanna’s plunging, form skimming Armani dress was your pick for Outfit of the Year.

    Diva wrote, “Rih , hands down with that Armani— killed it!”

    9. Most Improved Fashionista: Brandy and Khloe Kardashian

    Yet another tie! Both Brandy and Khloe Kardashian received 28% of your votes.

    From Brandy’s promotional tour looks to Khloe Kardashian’s X-Factor ensembles, you guys were all in.

    What do you think of this year’s winners?
