I’ve seen alot of top 10 lists for 2013 this month so of course I had to come up with my own! This is my Top 10 Beauty Looks of 2013 list, featuring all of my favorite celebs. Enjoy!
1. Jennifer Lawrence – Pixie Cut
Jennifer Lawrence getting a pixie cut may have been the most talked about thing for about five days, which led to me being severely depressed. It’s not her fault, pixie cuts are the new thing as we near 2014 but I simply cannot and will not get on board. She is still stunning, even a pixie cut cannot cover up how beautiful she is so I’m letting it go for now.
2. Kerry Washington – As Olivia Pope in Scandal
I don’t know who was more famous in 2013 – Kerry Washington or the character she plays – Olivia Pope. I mean, some people still don’t even know the actress’s name because Ms. Pope is taking all of the spotlight. In my opinion, her fashion and beauty are impeccible whether on screen or off. This look from the 24th Annual Producers Guild Awards is my pick for Kerry’s best 2013 look.
3. Beyonce Knowles – Blonde Bombshell
Beyonce recently dropped a bomb on us when she released her new album, complete with 17 out-of-control videos. I couldn’t pick one look from any of them that beats the rest because she is gorgeous beyond belief is every single one. Instead, I’m posting this fierce, don’t-mess-with-the-queen look that dares with to find just one 2013 look from Bey that you consider best.
4. Rita Ora
Rita Ora is on top of the world right now and her style shows it. I’ve already talked about how flawless her skin is and how much I love her but I wanted to highlight this blonde bob in particular because it is just perfect.
5. Rihanna – Back to Normal?
Rihanna has thrown everyone for a loop beauty-wise in 2013, I mean a blue mullet?? We wanted to cheer for her, but we just couldn’t. THANK GOODNESS she seemed to be back to her normal, beautiful self at the Grammys. On the other hand, she posed all snuggly with Chris Brown, so in my opinion that cancels out any good PR she may have recieved.
6. Miley Cyrus – Wrecking Ball
Obviously Miley has committed countless beauty blunders in 2013 – far too many to touch on in this post, but she has gotten one thing right in 2013 – her makeup. She has toned down the overly smokey eyes and fake lashes from 2012 and stuck to the natural eyes with a pop of daring red lips. This shot from her Wrecking Ball video is the best look, as long as you cut out the weird whitey tightys and tank top combo.
7. Selena Gomez – Her mature new style
Selena Gomez did two things right in 2013. First, she got rid of Justin Bieber who is currently spirally out of control – to no one’s entertainment… and she started dressing like the beautiful woman that she’s become. This look from the VMAs is by far her most stunning, I still cannot get over how fabulous it is – simply fierce.
8. Taylor Swift – Bangs
Taylor had another amazing year (no shocker there) and her style is growing with her. In 2013, she decided to change her curly locks out for straight hair and bangs. Now, at first I was like “ew, what was she thinking? She looks so old!” Then I realized, she is not a kid any more and the bangs only highlight her amazing cheek bones. So I am all in Tay, bangs away!
9. Kate Middleton – Pregnancy Beauty
I will be the first to admit that I am not someone who immediatly thinks a woman is “glowing with new mom beauty” when she’s pregnant, especially with maternity clothes so hard to get right. However, Kate Middleton was absolutely stunning throughout her pregnancy. This peach number specifically was her best look – but it was hard to choose!
10. Britney Spears
Britney made a huge come back this year with a new album, a rockin body and aparently, much more self confidence. Coco Perez posted this instagram pic of Britney au natural – and she is still flawless. All flashiness aside, this look is her best of 2013.
What are some beautiful looks I may have missed for my 2013 recap? Or do you agree with all of mine? (I’m betting the ladder.)
