Best Dresses of 2010, Friends Edition

After months of anticipation (ha!), I’m excited to present the Best Dresses of 2010, Friends Edition!

Back in July, I asked friends and friends of friends to send in photos of their favorite dresses. I also did some trolling on Facebook and found some gorgeous frocks as well. After sifting through all the submissions, I’ve narrowed down the list to these 11. They are in no particular order… but they are all fabulous!

Thank you to everyone who submitted and for all of you who allowed me to use your photos and dresses.

The print of this dress is so wild and fun–and Kelly pulls it off wonderfully. You need a little sass in your style to wear this dress and Kelly does this effortlessly. Love the length and fit too.

Kristen is one of the most stylish people I know. And with her model-like figure, she wears designer clothes beautifully. This Tibi dress is no exception. Fits her flawlessly… just gorgeous.

I love how timeless this dress is–the cut, the sleeves, the pencil skirt. And Gillian wears it supremely — you can feel (and see!) the fun she’s having while wearing it. Love the splash of red too.

I love Meredith’s unique sense of style: what she does with clothes always amazes and impresses me. And this dress is no exception. I love the color, the crystal detail, and the one-shoulder top. Super fun shoes too!

The material, the fit and the colors of this dress create a look that screams effortless chic. And that’s just how I see Megan. She’s a mother of four that always looks put together in a classy and fun way. Love this!

I’m a total sucker for two-tone dresses and this one is fabulous. I love the strapless top, the length, the belt and the way it fits Holly superbly! You just can’t go wrong with Alice + Olivia dresses–they are always so fun!

Few people can pull off a dress this sassy and form-fitting, but Jen nails it. I’ve been loving Nicole Miller’s funky fabrics the past few seasons and Jen shows how to really rock it. I also love the collar of this dress: classy and feminine with a touch of flirt.

I was looking for the perfect little black dress to feature–and this was the hands-down winner. Aside from being a fun party dress, it really highlights Meredith’s showstopper legs. Not to mention those Pour Le Victoire heels. Hot, hot, hot!
