With the advent of Instagram, our Bombshell feature’s popularity has shifted to social media! Instead of dozens of comments on the site, all the votes and comments are on the ‘Gram! Therefore, I sifted through hundreds of Bombshells from the past year, and included Bombshells who were able to get over 4,200 likes on IG (most Bombshells get 2,000 or less).
Regardless of popularity or timing, these Bombshells killed it.
Check it out:
1. @SimplicityXStyle from New York (5,183 Likes, 104 Comments)
To this day, we still don’t know this elusive Bombshell’s name! We will now and forever refer to her as her Instagram handle, @SimplicityxStyle.
Her ensembles bubbled over with designer duds, from DSquared2 sandals to Céline bags, and fuzzy Chanel purses.
@Dear_Fashionista cosigned, “Yes. She’s everything! Her shoes slay. The shades!? Chile yes!” Agreed!
Classical/Jazz vocalist Erica has more than just astounding talent: she has amazing style! Her short selection of well tailored looks embraced neutrals, punctuated by great shoes.
@AshleesGram wrote, “I like this a lot? The fashion bloggers you usually pick seem to all look the same (blogger starter kit) ripped jeans, strappy sandels, and flannel shirts with a attitude pose to boot.lol This woman is giving me mature, stylist, classy, sophisticated lady! Kudos.”
3. Shenique @shequestyle from Turks & Caicos (4,117 Likes, 103 Comments)
Shenique from the Turks & Caicos brought loads of color, prints, and punch to our Bombshell feature.
Readers were wowed, leaving comments like, “She’s gorgeous, great smile and fashion as well.”
@Honye_xo was over the moon, typing, “YES! YES! A million times YES! ?????” We couldn’t agree more!
4. Eunice aka @fashionsplayground from Wales (4,405 Likes, 99 Comments)
Eunice dazzled us all with her bomb looks and bodacious form.
She worked a wrap dress like no other, and enlivened everything from jumpsuits to wrap skirts with her singular flair.
@IamChevinell effused, “Wow this lady is gorgeous. Simple and elegant yet sexy. Yasss girllll ???”
5. Sabine @thebstinger from Florida (5,642 Likes, Over 138 Comments)
Sabine The B Stinger worked chic and simple looks to the max.
The bright eyed Florida based Bombshell summed up her style perfectly, typing, “My style is classic, with a hint of trend.”
5,642 likes made her a Fashion Bomb favorite! @MonicaTeamGood said, “Never heard [of] her but her swagggggggg is on overload! The world better follow because she is about to blow!” Kaboom!
6. Charmaine @Charmsie from Atlanta (5,407 Likes, 142 Comments)
Charmsie is all around creative, whether she’s unleashing a litany of looks for Halloween or moonlighting in our Bombshell feature.
She wrote, “My style is very eclectic, I can look like completely different people throughout the week and I love that.”
You guys loved it, too, with Antoinette typing, “Charmaine is awesome from head to toe!!!!!!! She’s a fashion DIVA!!!!!!!!!!!!!!”
7. Marche aka @marcherobinson from North Carolina (5,743 Likes, 147 Comments)
We’ve had loads of 2nd timers this year, including Marche from North Carolina.
About her style, she said “I like trends as much as the next person but also try to pair them with classic pieces that I can wear to work and years to come.”
Absolutely everyone wanted to know where she bought her items and @TheBlaqueMusePhoto wrote, “Oh my god love this and she has my body type too lol.”
8. Brenda @theonlyskinnybish from Ottawa (4,782 Likes, 203 Comments)
Brenda worked a series of feminine styles and silhouettes, incorporating loads of African prints.
The 3rd time Bombshell said, “I would say my style is very colorful, trendy and happy.”
Rae B was on board, and said, “Girl you killed it! I loved every fit…from the patterns to the color schemes. I wish more of my African genes were dominant because your curves are crazy and your waist is snatched! lol lol sigh to be a woman with the “apple shape.”
9. Teki @teki_02 from Texas (4,292 Likes, 97 comments)
Teki from Texas slayed with simple ‘fits that every woman could find flattering.
On Instragram, readers wrote, “Killed it, completely!” and “Murdered Every Look.”
She wrote, “I don’t think fashion should be about only sticking to high end designers, but rather how you can obtain the look of a high end outfit.”
@KenyaDoll wrote, “Her style is hot!!! Love it!!!”
Krystal Rene added, “Love the wardrobe! Love her style! Loved the positive things she had to say! Your fashion represents who YOU are. She’s polished with a hint of edge!”
Whooo, that was a doozy!
But we’re done!
Who should be Bombshell of the Year?
