2010 brought us some interesting, sexy and unforgettable characters, events and trends. Here is the ETQTE BBY round-up:
- Mad Men
Responsible for possibly the biggest fashion trend of the year, even Louis Vuitton got on board to recreate 1950's style circle skirts, as well as the release of fashion's newest and most unlikely style icon, Christina Hendricks.
- Aviator jackets
Whether you want to fork out two grand for a Burberry original or pop to your nearest vintage market for the charity shop chic look, they were EVERYWHERE, and they were warm.
- Socks and... shoes?!
They were hot. School girl cutsiness without the perverted overtones. Candy colours or acid brights were all good.
- Invasion of the red-heads
Christina Hendricks, Florence Welch, Rihanna, Amy Adams, Hayley Williams, even Cheryl Cole...
- Chloe Moretz
The coolest 13 year old EVER. The actress is set for big things, watch this space.
- The return of Sofia Coppola
YAYAYAYAYAYAYAYAYAYAYAY!!! Ms Coppola came back with Somewhere in all her glory!
- Georgia Jagger
The face of Chanel and Rimmel, Jerry Hall and Mick Jagger's daughter is still a teenager but already a girl crush. Making gap-toothed smiles sexy with her blow up doll lips and dusty blonde locks.
- The end of Big Brother
Two words: THANK GOD. Yeah, fuck off Davina, that is so last decade.
- The Only Way Is Essex
Possibly the most unanimous guilty pleasure I know. The Hills on a budget, the show introduced us to vajazzles and we haven't looked back.
Bad hair days are gone forever as the turban trend is lasting into the new season.
- Willow Smith
I WANT TO BE HER. LITERALLY, ASK MY FRIENDS. HOW DOES A 10 YEAR OLD HAVE THAT MUCH SWAGGER? JESUS.
- Rise of the Tweenagers. (Willow not included...)
Bieber. Suri. Half of YouTube. Nah mate.
I know it is probably amazing but I for one do not need another technological breakthrough to steal my social life away as it inevitably will if I get my hands on one. Either that or I'll lose it. When I'm drunk. Poo.
- Cheryl's over-exposure
Readers of my blog probably do not need an explanation here. That chick does anything for publicity, this year? Oooh lets see: just a casual attack of malaria, divorce, derek/will.i.am/simon 'am I or aren't I?' game. I am literally fascinated by the amount of attention and fame she has for such little talent. LITERALLY FASCINATED.
- Emma Watson's freedom
No. And the haircut? - no.
- World Cup failure
Were will really going to win though? Aww. I know but come on now bubbas.
- Sex And The City 2
Hand on my heart the WORST film of the year. Thank you Paramount for RUINING a decade of devotion to one of the best series ever made.
- Taylor Momsen
"My best friend is my dildo" said the SIXTEEN year old.
THE DAMN RIGHT U.G.L.Y
- Crystal Renn's new-found skinniness. (OK I lie. She is fucking fabulous.)
I stand by my confession <3
- KATIE WAISSEL
There are no words. Well there is one: weeeeeaaaasel.
Here's hoping for 2011....
