My 2011 Best dressed

The Boys!!! Common (my husband!), Curtis Jackson, Colin Firth and David Gandy set me a flutter this year.

Zoe Saldana sets it on fire. Always. I begrudge, but I have to give it! Olivia Palermo (copied my hair cut) looks great.  I don't begrudge Emma Watson, she really blossomed this year.

Chanel Iman is model so it is quite expected that she looks so fabulous all of the time. Queen Latifah is large and in charge. She always looks so beautiful and stylish. We love it.  And Nobody's perfect. but when Katie Holmes gets it right, she really gets it right.

Do love these ladies.  They are sooooo stylish and cool and effortless and groomed for the same time. Love it Nicole Ritchie, Dita Von Tease, Gwen Stefani and Corrine Bailey Rae.

Of course my list would be incomplete without Halle Berry and Jessica Alba and Sarah Jessica Parker (below).

Alexandra Burke is still getting love from stylists (OK.COM), and Rooney Mara, despite her name blazed her way into my attention.  Mila Kunis also looked fine many times this year.

My 2011 - The improved and confused

Katie Holmes gets it right so often and then this? And Nicole Scherzinger is beautiful but I can't understand her choices. I am getting Alexa Chung more these days. I am liking her choices.  Still not one of my icons, but I get it more.  Rachel Zoe('s team) dress her clients so beautifully (mostly) and then she wears ill fitting clothes that drown her.

Not my taste, but beautifully done. She is a glamazon and her maternity style is well done. Pippa Middleton is over rated in my book. Attractive and the sister of a possible future queen. That is all.  And for me, Elle McPhearson is well preserved, but he looks a little like she tries to hard. Fashion only really works when it seems effortless.

My 2011 - Not the best dressed...

Where would we be without the good old Kardashians? Good old Kim, over made up and dressed by a drag queen. She looks really pretty much more natural. Even the PJ photo looks contrived. I hope she is happy.

I like Khloe Kardashian (as much as I can without knowing her), but she needs to stop sharing the drag queen stylist... I like Koutney's choices sometimes. But not this time. I do think Cheryl Cole is very pretty, but very misguided. And Serena, Ay Serena.. why must I weep so much this year. I. Can. Not! I Quit!

My 'mutton' award' goes to Nancy Dell Ollo. Attractive, but she needs to hire a stylist, or fire a sylist. Or buy  a real time mirror, or put daylight bulbs in her dressing room.. I can't anymore. My suggestions are from a kind place. But I can't.

And Al Pacino is not much better. Know your age! You don'thave to dress like an OAP, but dressing 'hip' from an era that was you 'hip' era just ages you  more. Tragic. Money clearly cannot buy class Paris Hilton. Her sister dresses so well and they seem to like each other, so I don't understand why she gets it so wrong.  I don't know who this guy is, but the adult romper is not a good look. It needs to retire. Right now! And Lindsay Lohan. Another example of a pretty girl who fought her hotness. And won. That's a fight to lose.
