Vogue reveals 2013’s best-dressed Celebrities
“You only had to glimpse the queues that formed at London’s Liberty store when Alexa Chung arrived to sign copies of her debut book, It, to know that her status as a style idol is showing no signs of waning,” said Vogue.
Alexa Chung maintains the London cool that’s won her various style accolades, including one of this year’s best-dressed stars.
A new comer in Hollywood, with her very first film role in Steve McQueen’s 12 Years A Slave that earned critical acclaim, Vogue said to expect to see a lot more of Lupita Nyong’o next year.
“For an actress new to the circuit, she’s mastered red carpet dressing with ease and really cemented her status as a rising fashion star when she became the first to wear Miu Miu’s spring/summer 2014 collection in public,” said Vogue.
The singer-turned-fashion designer made it to the list by wearing her own labels.
“Her dedication to brand Beckham ensures Victoria is always immaculately turned out, whether at the airport or on the red carpet, and almost exclusively in pieces from her upcoming collections. For 2013, this has resulted in a penchant for boyish silhouettes, tailoring and slinky gowns for evening, with the odd piece of Miu Miu or Isabel Marant thrown into the mix to keep things interesting,” Vogue said.
“If the fashion world stood and paid attention to Cara Delevingne in 2012, 2013 saw her profile reach new stratospheric levels. She starred on two British Vogue covers and the inaugural Miss Vogue cover, landed a string of film roles – set for release in 2014 – amassed a social media following unrivalled by her model contemporaries, made over 50 catwalk appearances and fronted some of fashion’s biggest advertising campaigns,” Vogue said.
Style-wise, Cara Delevigne maintained her tomboyish signature look this year that earned her a legion of fans.
“A best dressed list fixture – Kate Moss’s endlessly cool melange of vintage and designer continues to fascinate, 20 years on since her very first Vogue cover,” Vogue said.
Moss did not only score a spot in Vogue’s most stylish celebs but will also be one of the magazine’s contributing fashion editors next year.
“Few films enjoyed quite the buzz this year as Baz Luhrmann’s The Great Gatsby and Carey Mulligan was every inch the leading lady as she hit the global round of premieres and film festivals.”
Whether she is wearing high-octane gowns or sleek cocktail dresses, Mulligan maintains the natural elegance on the red carpet.
At 68, Helen Mirren is the oldest in the list but does not mean she is any less stylish than the rest.
“The 2013 BAFTAs may have been attended by a roll-call of visiting Hollywood’s actresses, but it was Helen Mirren who dominated the front pages of every newspaper the next day thanks to her new candy pink crop. Team her penchant for fashion risk-taking with her ability to pull off a Dolce & Gabbana dress better than many a woman half her age and Mirren has never looked more glamorous,” said Vogue.
Giovanna Battaglia is not the L’Uomo Vogue editor for nothing.
“The L’Uomo Vogue editor is a street style photographer’s dream – always effortlessly chic with plenty of Italian glamour,” said Vogue.
“There’s an air of androgynous cool about Edie Campbell’s signature look that you’ve either got or you haven’t – and Edie has it in droves,” said Vogue.
Not only did she make it to the list, Campbell also won the Model of the Year in this year’s British Fashion Awards.
“While her choppy bob has certainly been one of the year’s most talked about – and copied – hairstyles, Karlie Kloss has carved out a niche as one of the modelling world’s more polished red carpet stars,” said Vogue.
Often wearing fashion classics such as colour-block cocktail dresses, punctuated with a cut-away panel or plunging neckline, the American model has stood in good stead.
