In case you missed voting in any other StyleBistro Awards categories, you can find all the active polls here. Voting closes this weekend, so be sure to check back when we announce the results on August 21st!
Bryanboy: We’re huge fans of Bryanboy’s hilariously adorable personality and Vogue-worthy fashions, and we’re not the only ones. The “faboosh” Bryan Grey Yambao has blogged his way to A-List status in the industry—from nabbing front row spots at Fashion Week to befriending Anna Wintour (!) to his latest role as a judge on the millionth, er, 19th season of America’s Next Top Model. What other blogger can say they’ve done that? We also love how Bryan’s evolved his editorial content—from the handbag vanity shots in the very beginning to his across-America road trips with BFF Rumi (Fashion Toast!) this summer.
Atlantic-Pacific: From coast to coast, girlie-girls everywhere have fallen in love with Blair Eadie’s flawless style. A lover of stripes, sparkles and Chanel, it’s nearly impossible to scroll more than a few photos on Pinterest without stumbling upon the blonde blogger. Let’s just say we have her site bookmarked if we’re ever in need of color-blocking inspiration at a moment’s notice.
Garance Dore: The reigning queen of street style photography, Garance Dore’s blog is like a visual diary of the world’s most beautiful. She puts her background as an illustrator to work and personalizes each breathtaking image with a handwritten touch. Plus her weekend inspiration posts are just the thing we need (read: life-saving) to make it through our busy weeks.
The Glamourai: As to be expected by the title, Kelly Framel is the expert on all things glamorous—as she should be after a stint designing eveningwearing for Naeem Khan. The perfect mix of fashion photography, beauty get-the-looks, dreamy-worthy home decor, and, of course, outfit inspiration—we spend hours immersed in all her Glamourai greatness.
The Coveteur: Founders Erin Kleinberg and Stephanie Mark step inside the lives of fashion tastemakers and influencers on their highly-addictive blog, The Coveteur. Along with photog Jake Rosenberg, the trio visits houses and offices of big names like Anna Dello Russo, Lauren Conrad, Charlotte Ronson—even Carrie Bradshaw! For those of us (cough cough) even the slightest bit nosy at what others keep in their closets—this place where that desire is fulfilled.
Hanneli: Model-turned-blogger Hanneli Mustaparta is a prime example of a fashionista who can do it all—she shoots, strikes poses, and writes for all the content on her street-style-inspired blog. Oh yeah, and she does that on top of her gig as a Vogue contributing editor. Whew! Expect to see her examples of her work for the fashion bible, plenty of stunning street style images, plus other model cameos. (Hey there, Lindsey Wixson!)
The Sartorialist: Arguably the most important street style photog of our time, Scott Schuman has a way of bringing clothing to life through the lens. His photography series “On the Street” tells a story that fashion and beauty can be found everywhere in daily life—you just have to look for it. His work is so well-known its exhibited in prominent art museums, and his 2009 published anthology graces well over 100,000 coffee tables to date.
Girl With Curves: Tanesha Awasthi, aka the Girl With Curves, set out on a mission in February 2011 to bring style inspiration to the curvy community. A year-and-a-half later, she’s created a cult following for trendy plus-size gals and women size 0-12 alike. We adore that she’s all about promoting positive body images and not-so-secretly want everything in her wardrobe.
