1. Chloe Moretz
2010 was the year of the teen fashion icon and Chloë Moretz, just 13, came out on top as the reigning queen. Hand posed just so on her hip, or peering out from behind her sweeeping bob, she was seen at all the best fashion parties, wearing labels such as Chanel and Miu Miu, and giving the air of a much older fashion pro. At a party hosted by Miuccia Prada in London she arrived arm-in-arm with Emma Roberts. She rose to fame after her role as a foul-mouthed hit girl in “Kick-Ass” and is currently filming “Hugo Cabret”, directed by Martin Scorsese. There’s a reason why Karl Lagerfeld loves her.
Want to know who’s going to be the next big thing in 2011? Here are the top ten fashionable faces of 2011.
2. Isabel Lucas
Australian actress Isabel Lucas had her breakout moment in “Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen”, alongside Megan Fox. Hollywood casting agents love the 25 year-old brunette, who recently had “a moment” on the red carpet at the premiere of Sofia Coppola’s latest film, “Somewhere”, in head-to-toe Louis Vuitton.
3. Tali Lennox
The beautiful daughter of pop veteran Annie, Tali Lennox, was our favourite social butterfly of 2010. The model embodies quirky London style; at the opening of the Christian Dior store in London last month, she paired a lighter-than-air, floaty cocktail dress with a black fedora. Here she is in “Black Swan”-inspired corset with lace. Watch out Alexa Chung..
4. Rosie Huntingdon-Whiteley
In 2010, Rosie Huntington-Whiteley proved she could do more than land the best advertising campaigns and a lucrative contract with Victoria’s Secret. She can act too, landing the lead role in the third Transformers movie opposite Shia LeBeouf and snapping the role away from Megan Fox. The film comes out in June 2011 and we know Huntington-Whiteley will be pulling out all the stops on red carpets across the globe. We see the role of Bond Girl in her future.
5. Kate Middleton
The eyes of the world will be on the future Queen of England when she marries Prince William in April. The feverish speculation over her wedding dress has spawned hundreds of designer sketches from the fashion world’s greatest names. Her style is endlessly compared to Princess Diana’s, while her love of high street fashion is also worthy of praise. The Issa dress she wore on the day her engagement was announced sold out online withing 24 hours, and Reiss is hurriedly remaking the past season dress she wore in the official portrait taken by Mario Testino.
6. Abbie Cornish
Abbie Cornish’s career has been bubbling away under the surface for years. We think 2011 will be the year she comes out on top. She has three big films on the way: the first is a starring role in Madonna’s film, W.E., about King Edward VIII and Wallis Simpson. Next she will be seen in Sucker Punch, a fantasy-world thriller directed by Zach Snyder (Watchmen). If that wasn’t enough, she will be appearing opposite Robert De Niro in Limitless.
7. Romola Garai
Romola Garai is going to have two big things next year: “One Day” (with Anne Hathaway) and a new British TV series, “The Hour” (set behind the scenes of a broadcast newsroom in 1956). We’re counting on “The Hour”, written by BAFTA-winning Abi Morgan, to deliver a “Mad Men” fix of period costumes, burgeoning sexual politics and retro media shenanigans. Garai, Dominic West and Ben Whishaw form the central love triangle of Bel and her rivals Freddie and Hector. Will Bel be the new Peggy Olsen? Only time will tell.
8. Saoirse Ronan
Irish actress, Saoirse (pronounced “seer-sha”) Ronan has that rare chameleon quality. As the wide-eyed younger sister to Keira Knightley in “Atonement” she won critical acclaim. It landed her the lead role in Peter Jackson’s “The Lovely Bones”, opposite Rachel Weisz, Mark Wahlberg and Susan Sarandon. Next she appears with Cate Blanchett in Hanna, and as Effie in “Effie Gray” (along with Orlando Bloom and Emma Thompson) about the relationship between Victorian artist John Ruskin and his teenage bride … We told you 2011 would be the year of the teens.
9. Lindsey Wixson
Model of the moment Lindsey Wixson made her catwalk debut at the spring/summer 2010 shows in New York aged just 15. She was immediately whisked off to Milan to open the spring/summer 2010 Prada show on an exclusive – meaning she could only walk for Prada. She appeared as the face of the last two Miu Miu campaigns, clocking up an impressive portfolio of magazine spreads and covers, and was recently confirmed as the new face of Marc Jacobs and Mulberry for spring.
10. Edie Campbell
Edie Campbell has already won a coveted spot on Vogue’s best-dressed list, and has appeared alongside Kate Moss in the Burberry campaigns. With her rock star boyfriend, Johnny Borrell in tow, she will be cutting a rug in London all year, as fashion’s new Penelope Tree.
