The Style and Beauty “Nice List.”

BlogFashion Trends | December 4, 2013

Santa’s starting to pack his sleigh, and hopefully, he has a load of goodies for the celebrities that defined style and beauty in 2013.

Here are some celebrities I am sure are on the “Nice List”:

Kerri Washington

Her style is flawless. If she asked Santa for a Pony, she would wake up on Christmas morning with a stable. She manages to look polished and effortless at the same time. She focuses on one feature for drama, and leaves the rest light and airy.  She is a woman whose look will be regarded as perfection for decades to come!

Jenny keeps bouncing on and off of the “nice list” due to some questionable fashion choices and an inability to censor herself.  However, her charm and sense of humor is undeniable.  Her short hair will send many young women to the “chair,” and no matter what she is wearing, you can’t help but love her. True style makes you notice one thing only – the woman.

She manages to look young, edgy, and fashion-forward without looking like the floor of a nightclub at 5am. Sure, you could make a case for a permanent place on the “naughty list” for that “Bieber” accessory, but then she rocks a faux-hawk like a glamorous warrior princess and all is forgiven.

This Retro Diva dresses for her TALENT.  She shows us that style knows no size, and some looks are classic for a reason!  “Santa Baby” has a place on his list for Adele, and he doesn’t have to look twice!

These women don’t need a list! They prove you can be fierce and fashionable over 50.  They take risks and are, simultaneously, the best and worst women on TV.  I kind of think that “ American Horror Story: Coven” is actually a gift from Santa to us.

Of course, we also have “ Santa’s Super Elves.”

People want to put celebrities like Miley Cryus, Lady Gaga, and Rihanna on the “naughty” list because they often show up to award shows wearing meat suits, teddy bear lingerie, or two strips of fabric and some sparkles. In truth, they are pushing boundaries.

Where would fashion and beauty be if everyone always played it safe? While you would never wear an odd, 80’s, 2-piece cat leotard anywhere, ever, you may take a cue from Miley’s look and wear a whimsical top.

Fashion as art is not for the masses, but it is for inspiration! For that reason, Miley, Gaga, and Rihanna are very, very nice!

  So, what celebrities do you think defined style and beauty in 2013? Who do you think belongs on the “naughty” list?  Would you actually wear an odd, 2-piece, cat leotard?  Let us know!
