Best of 2008: Best Celebrity Style

Celebrity Style is a huge part of Fab and that's why picking the best of 2008 is a serious matter. Are you all ears? Great. There are 365 days in a year, and we have spotlighted at least one, sometimes two stars, five days a week. You do the math. Still, it was fairly easy narrowing down the options, as there are six ladies we constantly turn to for inspiration.
Leighton Meester is a rising star, not only on TV but also in fashion. She rocks party dresses with such ease. Ultimate California girl Lauren Conrad stays loyal to her leggings, Chanel bags, and platforms. Sarah Jessica Parker has a more mature style and gives the youngsters competition via her sleek, high-fashion eclecticism. A laid-back look — flats, flowy dresses, leather jackets, jeans — is Rachel Bilson's foolproof approach. And finally, Nicole Richie is a master at dressing up jeans. It's a tough job, but help me decide the Best Celebrity Style of 2008.

Rachel Bilson and Nicole Richie are my style icons. It is too hard to choose between them! No one else comes close when it comes day-to-day style.

Toss up between Leighton and Nicole, but if they had put Blair Waldorf, then def Blair - OMG her headbands, shoes and dresses!

Lauren and Nicole. Leighton has boring outfit for her daily wear, her red carpet looks is done by a stylist.

BabyNorbert, I totally agree with you! I hate SJP, and I think she has occasional successes, but for the most part her style is lame and just not my taste. agree with Shannonlyn - where's Diane Kruger? of these five I would definitely say Leighton, especially because I hate the other four's respective styles, but I say Diane and Kate Bosworth...

Leighton always and forever. She always makes beautiful, unexpected choices. Also, she's always perfectly made up and dressed... just perfect style all together

I voted for Leighton because she really stepped up her game this year, but I also love that Rachel did as well. And Shannolyn is so right. Where the freak is Diane Kruger, if anybody is consistent and original it's her.

well i don't know if there's just one person that i can pick for this. i like SJP's carpet looks, i like r-bil's look when she's just comfy in jeans, i like that LC dresses up a bit but isn't over done just to go shopping.

Where's Diane Kruger? Does flawless not count? Hee. Besides SJP, the rest all dress like any one of my friends or any girl on the street. I don't see any differences in any of their styles and, in fact, come here and often see pictures of at least two of them wearing pretty much the exact same thing. *shrugs*

No love for Posh? ;) Of the choices, Leighton, she's the one I'd borrow the most looks from.

I have to confess something and you all may hate me for saying it... here it goes... SJP doesn't really have great style if you ask me so i don't know what the fuss is about... In SATC she wears georgous clothing, but that's Pat Field and I haven't seen that many preimere looks of hers where I though "Wow, that looks goos"... they're not bad, but.... ... and her everyday outfits are not my taste - but hey - you can't win with everybody! (Please don't hate me)
