Fashion always plays a big part in the lives of many and 2013 was no different. Whether it was John Galliano booted from Parsons or the showcasing of a plus size runway at New York Fashion Week, 2013 had more than it's fair share of fashionable moments. The masses went nuts when Michelle Obama changed her hair style and got bangs to the point that even President Obama suggested that he might get bangs as well and then there was the disappearance of side boob and the emergence of side butt, two body parts that were included in the memo issued by CBS and the Recording Academy for the Grammys that they didn't want to see. Thank you Jennifer Lopez for the amazing leg though!
Then there was Miley Cyrus. There's no way around it you just have to mention Miley and her lack of clothing this year. Each time you saw you she had less and less clothing on. From panties and bras to high waisted bathing suits that would make an Brazilian waxist proud to pasties Miley wore it all...or none of it?
2013 greatest fashion moments weren't all about clothing though but the designers as well. 2013 saw the deaths of Lilly Pulitzer and Ottavio Missoni. Chanel celebrated its 100th anniversary, Dior its 65th and Jenny Packham its 25th. Prada used its first black model on the runways in over 20 years and Chanel offends Native Americans with its fashion line, Luluemon blames the wearers and Abercrombie announces its plans to create a plus size collection. Saint Laurent went grunge this year at the hands of Slimane, Rick Owens bought stomping to the runways and Conde Nast declares 'No More Interns!'.
Then there was the musical chairs the designers played with brands. Marc Jacobs left Louis Vuitton to focus on his own brand and Nicolas Ghesquiere stepped in, Nicola Formichetti stepped down from Thierry Mugler as well as stylist of Lady Gaga and went to Diesel, Alessandro Dell'Acqua stepped down from Les Copains and replaced Marco Zanini at Rochas who moved to Schiaparelli, Reed Krakoff left Coach to work on his brand and was replaced by Stuart Vevers, Graeme Fidler and Michael Herz left Bally and may be headed to Mulberry, Ann Demeulemeester left her own line and Jill Sanders left her own line...again. More like 'Duck, Duck, Goose' right?
Then there was the hair. Beyoncé debuted her pixie cut on Instagram (not her best look) and was followed shortly there after by the Jennifers: Jennifer Lawrence, Jennifer Hudson, Jennifer Aniston as well as Kristen Chenowith and Pamela Anderson. Charlize Theron went for a buzz cut this year as well as Jessie J and Karen Gillian and Anne Hathaway bleached her cropped locks platinum blonde. For those who weren’t brave enough to take the short route, faked it like Claire Danes and Zooey Deschanel. Best lock change up though goes hands down to Helen Mirren who rocked pink locks and although the look was temporary Dame Helen Mirren shows us that she can pull any look off. And the mullet...can't we completely ever forget the mullet? It came back with a softer more framing cut worn by Rihanna, Edie and the models of Marc Jacobs. The men usually never have to worry about bad hair styles but this year too many rocked the man bun like Chris Hemsworth, Collin Ferrell, Russell Brand and Jake Gyllenhaal. Lastly there were braids everywhere. Was it due to Jennifer Lawrence's character Katniss Everdeen in the Hunger Games movies (Catching Fire hit theaters in 2013) or is just that braids are so easy and versatile?
