From musical chairs at the fashion houses to Queen B’s confidential album, this year was an amazing year for fashion! To celebrate the New Year, we’ve rounded up the top 10 fashion stories that made 2013 chic!
#10 Let’s Not Forget About John Galliano
Oscar De La Renta raised some brows and hems in January when he granted John Galliano a “residency” at his atelier. As expected, the collection was sprinkled with hints of Dior drama. The question remains, will John return for round two?
#9 Hermès? Or Homies?
This year the fashion set was obsessed with making puns. Brian Lichtenberg took the cake with his coveted Féline sweatshirt spotted on virtually every streetstyle star.
#8 The Sock Bun
It was every fashionista’s call of duty to rock a sock bun this year. The ubiquitous hairstyle gets our award for the biggest beauty trend of the year.
#7 The Great Gatsby
The Great Gatsby sparked delusions of grandeur all over the world and a dazzling art deco moment in fashion from Tiffany and Co’s diamonds to the roaring chic Miuccia Prada designed costumes in the film.
#6 Marc Jacobs Leaves Vuitton
After 16 years at the helm of Louis Vuitton, Marc Jacobs left to pursue his namesake company’s IPO. His final show for LV wowed Paris Fashion week with an all black collection inspired by the “showgirl” in all of us. A jumpsuit with graffiti reading “I Love Paris” was part of the “goodbye” show. “It was an ode to Paris and to all the people I have been involved and work with. This city has been so great,” said Mr. Jacobs.
#5 Americans in China Fashion Show
In June, Proenza Schouler, Rag & Bone and Marchesa put on a show at Beijing’s Ming Dynasty City Wall. The show was hosted by the CFDA in efforts to promote American designers in China and was attended by over 400 distinguished guests from both the East and West.
#4 North West’s Closet
Kim Kardashian’s grams of baby North’s designer duds was definitely one of the fashion industry’s greatest guilty pleasures of the year. From custom Zanotti heels to a leather mini dress from A. Wang, North has one raid-worthy closet.
#3 Alexander Wang’s Epic Sample Sale
In July Alexander Wang sent out a tweet about a secret one-time event that turned out to be a free for all A. Wang clothing giveaway. The epic “sample sale” (dare we say) was one of the most buzzed about events this summer. Watch the fashion frenzy unfold in the video above.
#2 Miley Cyrus
As much as we tried, it was hard NOT to notice Miley Cyrus this year. From twerking with Robin Thicke at the VMAs to her latex get-ups 2013 was full of the star’s outrageous antics.
#1 The Year Of Beyonce
Only Beyonce can drop a record over night and shatter records with over 800,000 albums sold in the first few days of release. Queen Bey’s fierce fashion and empowering songs set the stage for major girl power in 2014.
