Readers’ Poll: Best Dressed Female Artist Of 2013

Is it just us, or did 2013 fly by? Like, it feels as though we watched the ball drop last weekend. That obviously can’t be, though, because our fave ladies wouldn’t have been able to wear all these looks in the span of four days. Well, maybe Lady Gaga could, but it’d be hard, even for her.

Based on the stories y’all clicked on, tweeted about, and shared on Facebook, we’ve rounded up 10 of the most stylish ladies from this year. Now we need your help in deciding who should be crowned best dressed. Will Lady Gaga continue her reign for the second year in a row, or will her throne be usurped by someone else? It’s up to you, so be sure to vote for your fave lady below. And act fast because the poll closes after Wednesday, December 18th!

After cancelling the remaining stops on her Born This Way Ball tour at the beginning of the year, Lady Gaga laid low and seemingly prepared a slew of outfits for her big return. She gave us her Botticelli-babe bikini, a glam-goth Prabal Gurung gown, and a technologically advanced dress that blew bubbles on its own.


Ariana Grande’s 2013 looks.

Between her signature floral frocks, schoolgirl steez, and ability to rock a floor-length sequined gown like it’s NBD, Ariana Grande is quickly emerging as a style icon. Now that she’s going blonder, maybe 2014 will be the year she sheds her half-up/half-down ’do?


Rihanna’s 2013 looks.

The only thing Rihanna changes as much as her hair is her general ~lewk~. Yeah, the same woman wore a Chanel cardigan as a dress and that gorgeous red gown to the Grammys. This year also saw the launch of her collaboration with River Island, which she obviously rocked as often as possible.


Selena Gomez’s 2013 looks.

We were introduced to an entirely new Selena Gomez in 2013: a grown-up version who wore red lipstick to match her “Come and Get It” steez, killed it in a stunning ball gown/bustier at the VMAs, and masterfully combined trendy fishtail braids and scrunchies.


Solange’s 2013 looks.

Print-pairing queen Solange, as usual, served as an inspiration on how to wear patterns, how to wear #JORTS onstage, and how to pair orange lipstick with, like, anything.


Taylor Swift’s 2013 looks.

Taylor Swift walked, no joke, almost every major red carpet in 2013. Between her glamorous gowns, her Red tour outfits, and her casual street style, Taylor delivered lots of different looks this year, usually with a swipe of red lipstick. #REDREDRED


Rita Ora’s 2013 looks.

She was named the face of, like, 1,000 companies this year, she snagged a cosmetics collaboration, and Rita Ora still managed to squeeze in time to perform, attend red carpets and Fashion Weeks the world over, and generally look effortlessly cool.


Miley Cyrus’ 2013 looks.

No offense to everyone else who exists on Earth, but 2013 was the year of Miley Cyrus. She wore hot pants, crop tops, leotards, pasties, onesies, jewels, sequins, feathers, fur, and so much more. Never 4get her cat-face crop top/underwear.


Iggy Azaela’s 2013 looks.

Iggy Azaela quickly became one of our fashion faves this year. You name it, she pulled it off: crop tops and matching high-waisted pants, prints, dresses of all lengths, colorful suits, and saris. She is a total style chameleon.


Katy Perry’s 2013 looks.

Since the death of her candy-lovin’ alter ago, Katy Perry has been changing up her fashion game on the reg. She proved she could coordinate on the red carpet (what up, matching polka-dot nails and dress?), invent a new stage steez, and wear collared dresses.
