Who Was the Most Fab Designer of 2007?

This morning one of the Pop girls declared: "I can't believe it's December." It always seems to creep up on you — the end of the year, that is. Alas, time flies when you're having fun! And fashion is just that. But it is time to decide which designer gets the Fab crown for Most Fab Designer of 2007. Last year, Phillip Lim won, and he has made great strides this year — maybe we sent him some good vibes.

(L-R: Karl Lagerfeld for Chanel, Nicolas Ghesquière for Balenciaga, Roberto Cavalli, Alber Elbaz for Lanvin, Alexander Wang)

I present to you the candidates for Most Fab Designer of 2007. Chanel is a crowd pleaser and red carpet stunner. Karl continues to reinvent the house, for both ready-to-wear and haute couture, and the accessories inspire and intrigue. Balenciaga, led by wünderkind Nicolas Ghesquière, is edgy, innovative, and a leader of the pack. The piped blazers from the Fall collection launched a thousand look-a-likes, and now Ikat prints are all the rage. Roberto Cavalli is a designer with gusto, one who doesn't follow the trends and always stays true to form — sexy, colorful, and glittering party looks. His collection for H&M was possibly one of the most coveted H&M designer collections yet. Alber Elbaz for Lanvin can do no wrong, from fluid tailoring to jewel-toned dresses. Everyone is wondering what this humble designer will do next. Lastly, the young and restless Alexander Wang. He's the BFF of models and Hollywood darlings. His streetwise style appeals to cool trendsetters. Nuff said. So . . . who has your vote?!

That was so hard! It was between Karl Legerfield, Nicholas Ghesquière, and Alber Elbaz. But I had to go with Alber. But now I kind of wish I went with Balenciaga...

Nicolas Ghesquière for Balenciaga -- simply for the blazers. I still want the blue one w/white trim.

I chose Nicolas because I thought his A/W collection for Balenciaga was probably the most influential of the season. Definitely not my personal favourite though- of the big designers, I would have chosen Miuccia Prada.
