It's no secret Alexa Chung was one of my favorites of 2009. I oooohd and aaaahd over every move she made and watched for every new outfit inspiration she gave us. She didn't have a movie to promote like the rest of the girls, but she did have a brand spanking new (now defunct) MTV talk show and a fantastic It Girl personality to introduce to the US.

Sadly it seems that Alexa was not as big of a hit with the MTV set as she was with the fashion set. While fashionistas called to her and wanted to make her one of the biggest deals NY's seen in a while, MTV decided her particular brand of British humor wasn't working for them after a mere 6 months. She was front and center at many of NYC's most prominent fashion events and of course a fixture during fashion week (I even had a few sightings myself). Her cool Brit It girl style translated perfectly and gave us tons of inspiration and a new outlook on the ability to wear black booties with everything (for me at least). 75% of my inspiration folder consists of Alexa's daily looks (courtesy of the now defunct What Alexa Wore Today blog) and we hope that the demise of her shortly lived MTV talk show doesn't mean that we New Yorkers will lose our dose of the coolest girl out there.

We have a feeling that Alexa won't stay unemployed for much longer...

Twilight made Ashley Greene a pseudo recognizable starlet, but her savvy red carpet choices made her a household name. With the promotional madness that was the pre-New Moon months Ashley took an opportunity to set herself apart from the rest of the Twilight again as the fashion plate. She does play Alice Cullen after all (for those of you not as big of Twilight nerds as I am Alice Cullen is a crazy fashionista and obsessed with designer clothes and basically tries to give Bella makeovers every chance she gets). Dolce & Gabbana is certainly her favorite and she's made some very risky choices. For the most part Ashley kept it young and thrilling on the red carpet and gave Robsten a run for their tabloid money by gracing many best dressed pages throughout the year.

Just a few words of advice for the newly minted fashionista: pace yourself Ashley, you still have Eclipse and Breaking Dawn ahead of you.

Zoe Saldana what would 2009 fashion be without you? Sure I've followed your rise to fame since Center Stage and Guess Who? but most of the world didn't get to know you until the world wide promotional tour for Star Trek. And wow them you did with looks so incredibly stylish that they landed you on every best dressed list from here to Timbuktu. Alaia, Prabal Gurung (props on being the first to wear a dress from the then relatively unknown designer), Emilio Pucci and so on and so forth. And did she stop there? Hell no. Ms. Saldana kept the fashion party going in 09 with the promotional tour for Avatar - yes that would be her second major blockbuster of the year. For Avatar Zoe's tastes became even more sophisticated. Show stoppers included a mini Versace and a silver RM by Roland Mouret mermaid dress.

And that doesn't even count Zoe's endless red carpet appearances outside of the promotional circuit. The pseudo newcomer really made a name for herself with her ballerina like long legs and Audrey Hepburn like carrying of the neck - a perfect posture for carrying a dress from the most desired designers in town.

Ladies and gentleman we present you nominee number 1 for 2009's Top Gun...Zoe Saldana. We know 2010 will give us way more Zoe fashions, lucky for us she has at least one movie to promote (Death at a Funeral) and you know the Avatar DVD release will get a big red carpet to do.

Feeling nostalgic for 2009 yet? Well considering I "dropped the ball" on the yearly recap it's time to start looking back. I know January 3rd seems a bit early to have thoughts of yesteryear, and a little late to look back on the wonders of 2009, but we're going to do it anyways. My bad.

It seems every year a select few Hollywood ladies outdo themselves on the red carpet. And 2009 was no different. In my humble opinion there were a very distinct six who shined more than all others. Granted five out of these six girls had the advantage of movie promotional tours to serve as the stage for showcasing some of the year's most fashionable looks. One thing's for sure, it was a tough call to even narrow it down to six, but looking back these were the ones who made the biggest impact on 2009 Hollywood Fashion. Again in my humble opinion.

And the first nominee is...
