The year that was 2010

And so it is the end of fashion and celebrities for 2010....And what a year it has been!  Personally, my highlight, was being a part of my very first Rosemount Australian Fashion Week.  This included meeting an array of fashion's elite, that I could only dream of meeting!  I will never forget Romance was Born's magical jungle show and Dion Lee's exquisite, elegant show at the Opera House!  Dion Lee was definitely a stand out in Australian Fashion this year. 
The year in fashion started off on a low note as we farewelled iconic fashion legend Alexander McQueen.  Things then took a weird turn, yes Lady Gaga challenged 'fashion' and accepted her VMA wearing a meat outfit, which included shoes and a headpiece.  Anna Wintour shocked everyone when she placed Halle Berry on the cover of the September Issue of Vogue, as this was the first African American on this issue since 1989.  Sydney participated in their very first Fashion's Night Out, which was followed by their opening of the new Westfield Sydney.  Whitney Port visited Australia during L'oreal Melbourne Fashion Festival and the nation stopped when Opera came.  We celebrated the weddings of Hilary Duff and Mike Comrie, Joel Madden and Nicole Richie, Katy Perry and Russell Brand and of course Miranda Kerr and Orlando Bloom.. Not forgetting that Miranda Kerr announced she was pregnant, as well as fashion queen Rachel Zoe!  Heidi Klum hung up her Victoria's Secret wings and Sarah Murdoch announced Kelsey as the winner of Australia's Next Top Model instead of Amanda.  Taylor Swift took over world and we bid farewell to 'The Hills'.  And as for reality tv?  Let's just say it was taken to a whole new level, where we all learnt the meaning of 'GTL'..  Kim Kardashian got named the highest paid reality tv star earning over $6million in 2010, followed by Lauren Conrad, the Kardashian sisters, Audrina Patridge, Bethenny Frankel, Kendra Wilkinson and Pauly D and Mike from Jersey Shore.  Did I miss anything?  Possibly the fact that we all witnessed some of the most amazing collection this year on a local and international front!  I can't wait to see the world of fashion and celebrities for 2011.
