In retrospect we must admit this has been a phenomenal year in fashion— Angelia Jolie‘s infamous right leg, Kristen Stewart‘s style revamp, and that mad scientist Karl Lagerfeld‘s manifestation of our childhood past time into the most talked about piece at Spring/Summer 2013 fashion week. Gotta love the interpretive genius of this great industry. As we assemble our yearly round-ups it’s hard not to remember the creative minds and fabulous faces of the the year gone by. With everything from Style Icons to Fashion Blogger of the Year, check out the winners of the 2012 MissesDressy Style Awards!
Best Spring 2013 RTW Collection – Burberry Prorsum
Filled with bold colors and everyone’s favorite (and possibly hazardous) candy clear handbags, Burberry Prorsum S/S 2013 stood out as chic and innovative. Though a narrow favorite, it won us over with wearable, fresh pieces. We hated choosing a winner from all the fabulous lines, but the trophy had to go to someone!
Most Influential – Anna Wintour
There are few names in fashion as well known and highly regarded as Anna Wintour. After over twenty-years as Vogue‘s editor-in-chief she’s left her mark on fashion in more ways than one. Over the year she not only gave up-and-coming designers the opportunity of a lifetime, by way of CFDA/Vogue Fashion Fund, she was also one of Forbes Most Fashionable Power Women, and a frequent front rower during Mercedes Benz Fashion Week S/S 2013 shows around the globe.
Model of the Year – Karlie Kloss
Not only is Karlie Kloss the clear victor for model of the year, she’s arguably the sole face of 2012 fashion. She’s appeared in numerous spreads and runway shows including a highly controversial Numero shoot, Victoria’s Secret’s2012 and Rag & Bone S/S 2013 runway shows, and Target + Neiman Marcus’ 2012 Holiday campaign. How many 20 year-old’s do you know with a resume that extensive?
Style Maven on the Rise – Emma Stone
Over the year Emma Stone has been working her way to style greatness. Having dyed her fiery mane blonde and coupled up with new beau Andrew Garfield, 2012 has been been a fun and free year for the starlet. On the fashion radar she stunned during Spring 2013 fashion week and has appeared in one fabulous runway look after another.
Brand of the Year – H&M
This one’s a no brainer. The mega brand has been on the tip of everyone’s tongue after what’s been a jam-packed year of collaborations and hot collections. Apparently H&M is the new go-to for high-fashion designers with an itch for the mainstream market.
Fashion Blog of the Year – The Blonde Salad
If you’ve never heard of The Blonde Salad blogger, Chiara Ferragni your laptops’s either been kidnapped or you’ve been tucked under a rock for the past year. Transcending the former fashion blog box Chiara has moved from an Italian student blogger to Teen Vogue/Italian Glamour model and fashion designer, creating capsule collections for Mango and her own shoe line.
Style Icon of the Year – Anna Dello Russo
Oh, Anna. The bold and sassy editor-at-large and fashion consultant for Vogue Japan has branded herself as an eccentric style pioneer over the years. Among all of her projects and appearances this past year, her H&M jewelry collaboration and feature in Barneys Electric Holiday were two of our favorites. There’s something intoxicating about this woman; we can’t wait to see what she pulls out of her (undoubtedly fabulous) hat next.
