I would delete Gwen. There are way better designers. Can we keep celebs out of our runways?

Don't know if models fits in this yearbook but Gemma absolutely deserves to be in it as this was ''her year of spotlight''

2005: The Year in Fashion



THE CLASS OF 2005
Most Popular: Gwen Stefani
In staging the runway show for her spring 2006 L.A.M.B. ready-to-wear collection, Gwen Stefani applied a technique she had mastered on her smash solo album, Love. Angel. Music. Baby. She incorporated several styles—chola girl, Rasta, Daisy Buchanan, Maria von Trapp—into one catchy whole. Rappers, mall rats, fashion editors—no one, it seems, can resist Gwen's charms. Next up for this multitasker? Her first baby, with husband Gavin Rossdale, due in 2006.

THE CLASS OF 2005
Thickest Thighs: Bruce Weber's Elephants
The year's biggest models? Rosie, Dixie, and Tai: the literally huge stars of Bruce Weber's high-fashion pachyderm portfolio in January's W. Wearing custom couture by the likes of Chanel, Ralph Lauren, and Manolo Blahnik, the elephantine trio proved that designer duds can look terrific on figures way, way beyond size 2. And unlike human supermodels, they work for peanuts.

THE CLASS OF 2005
Best Tan: Valentino
Val was busier than ever in 2005. He filmed an Oprah special in Paris, made Cate Blanchett look like an Oscar winner should, gave The New Yorker a glimpse into the lifestyles of the rich and fastidious, and crossed the Atlantic to pick up the Fashion Group International's Superstar Award. Through it all he found time to burnish his most prized asset—that glorious bronzed glow.

THE CLASS OF 2005
Cutest Couple: Isabel and Ruben Toledo
Amid the Brad 'n' Jen and Nick 'n' Jessica debacles, Ruben and Isabel Toledo were there to remind us that romance isn't dead. The fashion illustrator and his designer wife met nigh on three decades ago in high-school Spanish class, where it was amor at first sight for Ruben, although "it took Isabel six years to feel the same way." They're still going strong: In 2005, the Cuban-American couple not only won a National Design Award, they graced New York's Most Beautiful issue.

THE CLASS OF 2005
Most Likely to Secede: Kai Kühne
Though perhaps not as momentous as the Beatles breakup, the acrimonious As Four split sent shockwaves through downtown Manhattan. The details are murky (among other things, Kai's taste for plane travel and talent for misplacing his mobile failed to endear him to his label mates), but there are no losers in this affair. With As Four continuing as three and Kühne launching his own line, we can now look forward to double the wackiness.

THE CLASS OF 2005
Most Theatrical: John Galliano
No contest here, of course. Fashion's favorite impresario turned July's Dior Haute Couture presentation into one for the history books. To mark Christian Dior's 100th birthday, the showman conjured the spirits of a young Master Dior and his maman, who entered a magical mist-laden landscape in a horse-drawn Edwardian carriage. By contrast, Galliano's spring '06 show for his own label, a stirring procession of gigolos, tattooed sailors, and bearded transvestites, was a mere divertissement.

THE CLASS OF 2005
2-gether 4-ever: Domenico Dolce and Stefano Gabbana
Never known as low-key hosts, Domenico Dolce and Stefano Gabbana pulled out all the stops for their brand's 20th-anniversary celebration during Milan fashion week. Things started with a runway show nearly 100 looks long and ended with a no-expense-spared bash featuring the Lido de Paris dancing girls and a performance by Donna Summer. Though D and G's partnership is now purely professional, their shared love for maximalism, leopard print, and divas endures.

THE CLASS OF 2005
Class Cutup: Karl Lagerfeld
The wonder is not how he does so much, but how he has so much fun doing it. A master at combining business and pleasure, Karl Lagerfeld ended the year by importing Chanel's resort collection to New York and yukking it up around town with new pal Lindsay Lohan. Meanwhile, the Kaiser's wardrobe—the ecclesiastical collars, the booties, the gloves abbreviated to show off a treasure trove of Chrome Hearts rings—inspired not one but two imitators at Marc Jacobs' holiday costume party.

THE CLASS OF 2005
Best Smile: Rachel Roy
Damon Dash may have parted ways with business partner Jay-Z, but in 2005 he cemented another productive alliance. The rap mogul never appeared in public without his new bride, designer and West Coast transplant Rachel Roy, whose megawatt smile made her the (multi-) million-dollar baby of the social and hip-hop sets.
Photo: Greg Kessler


THE CLASS OF 2005
Class Complainer: Tara Subkoff
Some designers prefer to let their clothes speak for them. Not the Imitation of Christ founder, right, who made more waves this year with her words than her collections. Tara Subkoff's tirade at a Generation X fashion panel—something about gay men having it easy in the fashion business—provoked a national controversy, or at least a two-page article in the Styles section of The New York Times.
Photo: Greg Kessler


THE CLASS OF 2005
Most Entrepreneurial: Stella McCartney for H&M
Not since that other British invasion have masses of women swooned like they did when Stella McCartney's collection for H&M arrived at the chain's New York City stores. Priced to move, the coveted pieces sold out within hours of their release, causing headline-making near riots. Stella's peers and former protégés may be the critical darlings now, but the new mom is laughing all the way to the bank.
Photo: Gauthier Gallet


THE CLASS OF 2005
Most "Overexposed": Tom Ford
For a designer who quit the runway early last year, Tom Ford sure showed up a lot in 2005. The former creative director at Gucci and Yves Saint Laurent launched a sunglasses collection, sexed up Estée Lauder, took a high-profile guest editor gig for Vanity Fair's Hollywood issue, and announced plans for a menswear line. But the place we saw the most of Ford was the November issue of W, where he appeared in a 19-page photo spread. Nude.

THE CLASS OF 2005
Best Hair: Orlando Pita
Stylist of stars (Naomi, Kirsten, and Madonna), shows, and shoots, Orlando Pita is now available for regular-old haircuts at his salon, Orlo, in Manhattan's Meatpacking District. But before you rush to book an appointment, know that an 80-minute session runs $800. Too pricey? Nearby rival Sally Hershberger is a relative bargain at $600.

THE CLASS OF 2005
Most Likely to Be Expelled (and Reinstated): Marc Jacobs
The designer's fall presentation, with its voluminous skirts, Edward Gorey references, and general air of melancholic whimsy, caused a lot of long faces in the front row. (The 90-minute preshow delay didn't help.) But fast-forward a month, and buyers and editors were retrospectively calling the quirky collection a triumph. By the time the band marched in for the spring shows, Marc was once again living high on the hog.

THE CLASS OF 2005
Class Jock: Madonna
While critics debate whether Madonna has regained her musical mojo with November's Confessions on a Dance Floor, we can emphatically report that Madge retains firm control of her abs and thighs and biceps. Dusting herself off after a midsummer equestrian accident, the 47-year-old yoga enthusiast did some serious strutting in the "Hung Up" video, making Gen Y's pop starlets look like the soft, pampered brats they are.

THE CLASS OF 2005
Most Likely to Marry Rich: Melania Knauss
Apologies to Vanessa Haydon, who in November wed Donald Trump Jr., but Melania Knauss claimed the bigger purse when she tied the knot with Donald Trump père. The 34-year-old Slovenian model and The Apprentice mogul, 58, exchanged vows (her first; his third) in January at his Mar-a-Lago resort in Florida. Rocking a 15-karat, $1.5 million diamond engagement ring, Knauss wore a Dior Haute Couture by John Galliano gown of Trump-caliber stats: 98 yards of satin, 550 hours of embroidery, valued at $200,000. Phenomenal.
Photo: Mario Testino for Vogue


THE CLASS OF 2005
Exchange Student: Stefano Pilati
Promoted from within to succeed Tom Ford as Yves Saint Laurent creative director, Stefano Pilati wasted no time putting his own stamp on YSL and the fashion world at large. The tulip skirts and ruffles he showed in his spring 2005 collection became staples at many houses for fall—by which time Pilati was emphasizing restraint, with ecclesiastical touches like choirboy collars and strict tailoring. "I've made a start, yes," Pilati told Vogue, "but there is still more to do."
Photo: Greg Kessler


THE CLASS OF 2005
Heir to the Throne: Francisco Costa
Although the conditions at his spring 2006 Calvin Klein show were miserable (the saunalike heat turned everyone in the crowd into an instant fashion victim), Francisco Costa delivered a certifiably cool collection. All lightness and air, the clothes honored Klein's legacy without remaining beholden to it, and won the Brazilian-born designer a new generation of fans, including Alexis Bledel and Ashley Olsen.

THE CLASS OF 2005
Most Truant: Helmut Lang
There were other high-profile MIAs this year, including Daria Werbowy, the Canadian model who was omnipresent at the fall shows but notably absent during the spring season. But no one was missed more than Helmut Lang. One rumor has it that the Austrian designer is busy making art these days, but let's hope he returns to the fashion arena in some capacity in 2006.
Photo: Marcio Madeira


THE CLASS OF 2005
Sunniest Disposition: Resort
Formerly a fleeting season of caftans, bikinis, and sandals, resort has grown to include everything from suits to gowns, and has become a big business, one that according to some reports now outsells spring. But it's still typically shown in intimate showrooms, rather than paparazzi-clogged tents. Does this augur the end of runway shows? Hardly. It probably means more, smack dab in the middle of your summer vacation.

THE CLASS OF 2005
Comeback Kid: Kate Moss
It was the fastest turnaround since Steve Jobs rescued Apple. Yes, Kate Moss lost a slew of lucrative contracts after her drug scandal. But since coming out of an Arizona rehab clinic, she's bagged new campaigns with Longchamp and Stella McCartney, not to mention landed on the covers of Vanity Fair and Paris Vogue. The words printed on Alexander McQueen's T-shirt when he took a bow at his October show clearly spoke for the whole fashion community: "We love you Kate."

D&G? egh?? The Stella at H&M is the most overhyped thing ever.... No mention of the lovely Chloe collections or Rochas (which was so influential imo) or Prada (which, whether you like it or not, is stronger than ever).

is the same names and no surprises. Style.com is very similar to CFDA they promote the same people over and over and there own circle of "friends" if Donna karen or Calvin klein is nominated and wins another award for excellence or whatever I will scream....zac posen isnt doing anyhing different so dont give him anything either...so the style.com's list isnt any different from CFDA's self promotion. what has Galliano done this year? he had a good collection, maybe, but he didnt launch anything new..no new shops, nothing really big...so style.com isnt the most on-spot with their choices. I wish CFDA and style would feature true independent designers....show the fashion world real fresh fashions from young and truly unkown designers. pick them off thestreet and help catapult them into the scene.
all right im rambling sorry...
