2014 Year in Review: THE GOOD

My dear readers! I have not forgotten about you! Once again I find myself at the end of the year, eager to reflect on what we've been through together. 2014 was quite a year for fashion, no? We lost Joan and Oscar but we found Lupita. Mindy Kaling got a new stylist (thank god) and Amy Adams tried to go "slinky" 40 times to no avail. Lena Dunham wore a muppet that one time, no one knocked our socks off at the Tonys, and we quickly grew weary of the McConaissance.

Let's celebrate the final three days of 2014 by recapping the Best, the Worst, and the Most WTF. (There is no need to highlight the Most Meh - that would be so boring. You deserve better.) For you, today, I have a baker's dozen of my favorite looks of the year in no particular order except that the best ones are last (Spoiler Alert: Lupita, Lupita, Lupita).


Croatia's Coach in the World Cup!
I'll bet you forgot about my #1 hottie of the World Cup, didn't you? Ugh, I love this guy. Looking good, Croatian Coach!

Alison Williams at the Emmys!
Shockingly good and a big departure for her style-wise. Let's hope she continues in this vein for the upcoming Golden Globes.

Liu Wen at the Met Ball!
Showstopping drama in construction and color.

Cate Blanchett at the SAGs!
Again, I die. This dress cost me a thousand deaths.

Janelle Monae at the Met Ball!
Absolutely perfection from head to toe.

Oprah at the SAGs!
This is how I always want to picture Oprah when I think of her. Fabulous, fabulous.

Charlize Theron at the Met Ball!
Bow down! This is the height of Charlize.

Uzo Aduba at the Emmys!
Bow down again! Here we see the moment Uzo stepped directly into the spotlight.

Karolina Kurkova at the Met Ball!
I think this is the best dress of the year. I will never tire of looking at this masterpiece. I, for one, cannot wait to see what Karolina wears to the Met Ball next year.

Lupita Nyong'o at the Oscars!
Fairy tale princess - by this point in the awards season, you'll remember that we were all salivating, waiting for a showstopping look... no disappointment here. Gorgeous to the max.

Lupita Nyong'o at the SAGs!
This is the dress that made me start expecting excellence from her, style-wise. Shouldn't work, totally does. THAT is real fashion.

and finally....

Lupita Nyong'o at the Golden Globes!
Here it is: the moment America leaned forward and said, "Who is SHE!?"  Lupita, thank you for making this year in fashion so much fun!
