Best Dressed 2010

Every day, we at choose lots of the world’s most fashionable ladies for our daily digest.  Now that we’ve had a chance to look back at 2010, only a few are awarded our Best Dressed 2010 title.  And so, it is with great pleasure that I present the select few who really inspired me in 2010.

1. Olivia Palermo

The Most Stylish Across the Pond award goes to Olivia Palermo.  She stands out from the crowd in NYC as she gets most of her clothes when travelling in Europe (cue Topshop, Zara and Twenty8Twelve, amongst others) and has a knack of mixing high street with designer.

In 2009, Palermo was one of the first people I saw wearing a coatigan (a coat/cardigan) and she took the bib necklace slash collar necklace slash statement necklace to the next level wearing uber large versions –  If you fancy stealing her style, there are plenty at Tallulah Tu and Asos.

For fans of skinny jeans (who isn’t?) Olivia swears by AG’s “Stilt” jeans (£92), but to copy her accessories style from this particular pic, you’ll find her belt currently stocked at Penneys and the leopard print Mulberry Alexa handbag at Brown Thomas.

2. Amy Huberman

A former WhatSheWears Muse of the Month Amy Huberman has continued her stylish crusade all through 2010.

From the beautiful Beuys and Beuys dress Amy wore to the IFTAs,  to her wedding dress– Huberman wins our most stylish Irish woman award.

3. Dannii Minogue

Being a huge fan of elegant, structured dressing, my overall award goes to to Dannii Minogue, especially for her dress choices, reinventing her bob and accessories on The X Factor.

The fact that her hair was different on every single appearance was also a must watch factor, while she rocked dresses by home-grown Aussie talents such as J’Aton couture and Kiwi Designer Emilia Wickstead.

Queen of the asymmetric (one shouldered) dress, this white Grecian gown from X Factor Week 6 was my favourite. While this Australian Carla Zampatti design is off limits for most of us, Coast have created a similar version with their Trudy pleat maxi dress (£160), all be it a bandeau style.

Readers Choice

As a fashion site, we can’t ignore the subject of style that brings us all together and so we asked our readers via a quick poll on Twitter who was your Best Dressed Female in 2010 (Irish or International) and the responses that followed were:

Carey Mulligan: For her beautifully cropped hair and individual style

Emma Watson: For reinventing herself from Hermione in Harry Potter to a current Mia Farrow look

Dannii Minogue: X Factor 2010 catapulted her further up the fashion stakes.

Amy Huberman:  Amy oozes style, which creshendoed on her wedding day last summer

Lisa Cannon: The Xpose Brunette who we met at the Oasis press day

Mia Wasikowska:  The Alice in Wonderland actress and a rising star according to some

Lady Gaga: At The Grammy Awards, the time she came dressed in meat, GaGa is Best Dressed in a different sense of the word

So, who was your personal Best Dressed in 2010?
