Best Dressed 2010

Who What Wear’s Best Dressed: 2010

Best Import: Clemence Poesy
“We always love an import with a certain je ne sais quoi, and Clemence Poesy is truly a parfait example of said femme. Her effortlessly cool style has such French girl panache, and we know we can always count on the Gallic starlet for a flawless example of how to step out in a circle skirt—a silhouette she is able to parlay with enviably posh simplicity for both daytime and red-carpet worthy looks.”

MVP: Nicole Richie
“Everyone knows that Nicole Richie—who is an author/designer/actress/newlywed extraordinaire—certainly has a way with clothes. Nicole Richie can always be counted upon for her glamorous vintage-inspired sensibility, which she also seamlessly translates into herWinter Kate and House of Harlow 1960 lines.”

Fashion-Industry Favorite: Georgia Jagger
Georgia Jagger is clearly having a moment—in fact, her moment’s been going on for quite some time! The sexy, gap-toothed blonde and last year’s recipient of the British Fashion Awards Model of the Year award spent 2010 lending her curvy looks to a bevy of high-profile editorials, graced the covers of countless top mastheads likeHarper’s Bazaar and Australian Vogue, and caught the eye of Karl. Yes, that’s right: the va-va-voom, Bardot lookalike is currently the face of Chanel’s Resort 11 campaign after being handpicked by Lagerfeld for her ability to represent the modern girl.”

Reader’s Choice: Alexa Chung
Alexa Chung truly has her style profile nailed. The hip-Brit’s ever-quirky mix of au courant schoolgirl staples and key pieces from cult labels like Isabel Marant, 3.1 Phillip Lim, and Russell & Bromley consistently makes her a reader favorite and one to watch. And let’s not forget her daring and prescient selection of 3.1 Phillip Lim’s tuxedo jacket and suspender trousers to attend the Met Gala early this year!”

Most Fashionable Fixture: Sienna Miller
Sienna Miller always wins us over with her bohemian-chic charisma—we know we can count on her to routinely inspire our music-fest best—yet, this year she’s subtly upgraded her personal aesthetic. Accordingly, since she has deftly displayed a knack for evolving while still staying true to the style profile from whence she came, we voted her most fashionable fixture and look to her as one of the year’s icons, prepared to stand the test of time.”

Best Fashion Pro: Rachel Zoe
“As a top tier, in-demand stylist, we can always count on Rachel Zoe to create a slew of killer red-carpet ensembles for her celebrity clientele. But this behind-the-scenes maven and reality TV star clearly has her own look down to an RZ. Whether she’s fearlessly dictating the trends in a ladylike maxi dress, stepping out in a signature fur, or piling on the vintage (Chanel) baubles, Zoe always looks amahzing!”

Risktaker Extraordinaire: Rihanna
“Holding fast to her title for a second year in a row, Rihanna never fails to excite us with her dramatic sartorial flair. While the flame-haired songstress has turned the volume down on her more aggressive, tough-girl looks as of late—making room for a chorus of ladylike and chic layered ensembles—she continues to step out in envelope-pushing style, like the high-contrast zigzag trousers and Balenciaga flats outfit we spotted her in last spring.”

Best All-Around Style: Kate Bosworth
“Fact: Kate Bosworth never looks bad. At this point we can safely say she has reached fashion icon status. Whether she’s running around town in Celine flats or making a red-carpet statement in a fabulous frock from an emerging designer, Bosworth’s sartorial choices are always interesting, keenly on-trend, and have you, dear readers, endlessly celebrating her personal style.”

Best High-Low Mix: Olivia Palermo
“The master of high-street-meets-designer dressing is consistently a reader favorite, and often provides further outfit intrigue by bringing lesser-known brands into the limelight. From editor-worthy ensembles marked by metallic accents or a belted silhouette to polished off-duty wear punctuated by Stubbs & Wootton flats, this brunette beauty always balances timeless looks with cutting-edge trends.”

Most Muse-Worthy: Diane Krueger
“Whenever we need inspiration for a fancy-dressing affair, we know we can turn to the Kruger-meister. The perennially-elegant half of one of our favorite stylish couples, the stunning star always declares her red-carpet presence with lust-worthy dresses that make us wish for a peek inside her assumed-to-be-immaculate closet!”
