Best Dressed 2011: Our Picks So Far

There’s two months left before 2011 comes to a close, and while there’s more than enough time for an up-and-coming starlet to prove herself as a fashion heavyweight, there are certain names that come to mind when establishing the industry cré¨me de la cré¨me. So without further adieu, these are our picks for best dressed 2011 and why they’ve made our list.

Carey Mulligan

Few people can carry (no pun intended) casual, formal and experimental wear naturally, but with a flair for both high fashion and bohemian influence, the actress has not only succeeded in growing out her pixie, but proving herself a fashion force. After all, few of us could boast a dress with a cutout midriff successfully “ or classily.

Elizabeth Olsen

The other Olsen has proven that fashion awareness indeed runs in the family by taking a page out of her sisters’ unconventional approach to day-to-day looks and interpreting formal wear independently. Here’s to a 10 Things I Hate About You-inspired prom dress revival.

Jessica Chastain

What a difference a year makes. After flying under the radar for the better part of 2010, Jessica Chastain has come into her own both as a thespian and red carpet force, making playful interpretations of formal classics and proving the A-list isn’t necessarily for playing it safe.

Alexa Chung

Fashion darling of the UK, North America seems to finally have accepted Ms. Chung’s tomboy-meets-grandmother style, as her flair for layering, ruffles and borderline shapeless dresses hold true to both the ˜70s revival and this generation’s abandonment of convention. After all, not every 28-year-old can get away with overalls “ or encourage others to don them, too.

Emma Watson

Proving that child stars need not be doomed, Emma Watson used her ever-increasing presence to show that growing up doesn’t mean stifling one’s individuality. Through updated takes on classic favourites (a ˜50s inspired A-line dress worn with a leather bomber), Emma not only inspires her youthful fanbase, but older fans who want more than neutral staples.
