It’s been a very fashionable 2010, so to celebrate, we’ve decided to compile our first-ever list of the year’s best dressed. Professionally styled or not (most are not), these men and women have consistently gotten it right this year, or at the very least, impressed us with their individuality.
For each actor, musician, model or industry person on our list, we’ve selected five of his or her best looks from the past 12 months, so hopefully this list is also full of inspiration. In alphabetical order, we present to you our top 30 best dressed of the year.
Anne Hathaway This actress's star is steadily rising and so has the quality of her wardrobe--just about everything she wore during her Love and Other Drugs press tour was perfect.
Ashley Olsen While we love MK, Ashley has seriously stepped it up as of late and always looks chic and sophisticated.
Brad Goreski Rachel Zoe's former employee knew how to style himself from the very beginning. No one's ever looked better in a suit and a bow tie.
Carey Mulligan She never gets it wrong on the red carpet. Ever.
Caroline Sieber Emma Watson's stylist always wears that perfect dress and might have the best legs in the biz.
Charlotte Dellal The shoe designer channels old Hollywood glamor in a new and modern way.
Chloë Sevigny How could Chloe not be on our list? She takes risks and it always works.
Daphne Guinness I mean, she's an icon and at 43 she's still on top of her sartorial game.
Diane Kruger Diane might have appeared on our Best Dressed the most over the years. We love her chic simplicity and that she doesn't have a stylist.
Elle Fanning Elle, at 12 years of age, is an emerging style star.
Emma Watson With her chic new haircut and Burberry campaigns, this Brit is another one to watch.
Frida Gustavsson This adorable IMG model has got it going on both on and off the runway and is a street style blog darling.
Hanneli Mustaparta This street style photographer posts great photos of others but it's really the pictures of her that we adore the most. She mixes vintage with modern better than anyone.
Jason Schwartzman Basically, we wish every guy in the world dressed exactly like Jason Schwartzman/wore nothing but Band of Outsiders.
Julia Restoin-Roitfeld Julia has fashion in her genes and a style all her own.
Kanye West Fashion may
Kate Bosworth She hasn't acted much in the past couple of years, but she is constantly hounded by paparazzi. Her red carpet looks are as perfect and effortlessly chic as her street style.
Leighton Meester Sorry
Lou Doillon Lou has that kind of impossible-to-replicate French effortless style, like she just woke up wearing that.
Margherita Missoni The Missoni heiress has perfected the luxe-hippie look.
Mark Ronson Mark almost always wears suits, but they are never boring. Like all of the Ronsons, he is just so cool.
Michelle Obama She supports young designers and doesn't shy away from color. She looks as perfect and conservative as a first lady should, but never looks boring. She gets our vote.
Nicki Minaj Nicki is starting to get noticed for her rap skills as well as her style. Some might say she's just copying Gaga, but we think there's definitely something unique there.
Olivia Palermo Love her or hate her, this reality TV star knows how to put together an outfit.
Rachel Bilson Like Kate Bosworth, Rachel is photographed to death because of her awesome style. She always looks adorable and makes us want to wear what she's wearing.
Shala Monroque Shala is a relative unknown compared to the rest of our best dressed, but given her impeccable sense of style, we think you'll be hearing the Pop editor-at-large's name a lot more.
Sienna Miller Sienna helped spearhead that whole boho chic thing a few years ago and continues to look great post-the demise of slouchy boots.
Sofia Coppola Last but certainly not least,
