From Rita Ora to Kim Kardashian – we reveal our fashion winners and sinners of the year

WHO would have thought at the start of 2020 that a mask would become an essential accessory and a tracksuit workwear?

It has certainly been a strange year for fashion, but that doesn’t mean celebs haven’t tried to make the best of it. Here Clemmie Fieldsend awards the style winners – and losers.

Best innovator

Singer Rita Ora debuted a tri-kini on a holiday in Ibiza in August.

The three-piece mask and bikini set cost more than £200, but kept the star safe on the white isle. It is just a shame that the 30th birthday party she hosted during lockdown in November wasn’t as Covid-compliant.

Best Boulder Shoulders

Emma Corrin, 25, became a household name following her performance as Princess Diana in The Crown but she shoulder pads bagged their own moment in the spotlight on Graham Norton in November.

Her voluminous frock caused a fashion stir for its oversized, bin bag shoulders.

Best accessory

While a face mask was necessary, it wasn’t our favourite accessory. That honour goes to the gold chain worn by Normal People’s Connell.

Viewers were hooked on the Irish drama’s steamy, but awkward, sex scenes and actor Paul Mescal’s necklace. It even has its own Instagram account with 178,000 fans.

Best in show

Kim Kardashian turned 40 this year but that didn’t stop her showing off her thong.

The visible G-string look has made a mighty comeback in 2020 as did red underwear with eBay reporting a 29 per cent rise in the sexy shade. 

Best dress

One Direction heart-throb Harry Styles sparked a global debate when he spoke of his love of dressing up in women’s clothes.

When he made history in November as US Vogue’s first solo male cover, Harry, 26, wore a dress – and we love him for it.

Best for less

One can only hope Madison Beer was given a substantial discount on her black and diamante catsuit that looked like it had been through a shredder.

The 21-year-old US singer completed the look with a another 2020 wardrobe essential – a dressing down.

Most stylish PPE

AS the severity of the virus became more apparent in March, model Naomi Campbell put safety before style and pulled on a Hazmat suit and goggles for the airport.

For a flight two months later, the 50-year-old added a face shield. Surprisingly, her airport attire didn’t catch on for us normal folk.

Best newcomer

That’s right – the Chancellor of the Exchequer. Rishi Sunak, or Dishy Rishi to his army of fans, he’s made his mark this year.

The 40 year-old earned serious style points when he got into his working from home wardrobe and slipped on a grey hoodie, just like the rest of us

Best binlady

BGT judge and radio host Amanda Holden, 49, kept her standards and hemlines high despite more time spent at home.

It included a risque hot-pink gown to take out the bins. The stunt gave us all a much-needed lift at the start of the first lockdown.

Best facemask

WE never thought we’d be handing out a prize for an accessory that, before this year, no one outside of a science lab had to wear. But 2020 was full of surprises and now a facemask is de rigueur.

Model Lottie Moss, 22, showed us how to stay stylish in a £14 PrettyLittleThing dress that had a built-in mask.It was a sell-out.
