They never lied when they said time flies when you are having a good time. All too soon 2021 has come to an end and it’s time to take stock of the best of the year.
2021 brought many ups and downs and some pitfalls. However, if there was anything that stayed consistently haute and hot, it was fashion. We are talking sequin gowns, delicate hems and bejeweled blouses.
We shortlisted our top best dressed female celebrities of 2021. Some of these celebrities influenced fashion trends and some even started them. Their Instagram feeds are almost literally a magazine editorial spread. We fell in love with their fashion aesthetic and had to share.
In no particular ranking order, here are our top 12 best dressed female celebrities of 2021:
1. Nana Ama McBrown
At number one comes the Queen of Showbiz talk shows herself. Nana Ama McBrown is one woman who is not shy to take risks and we love to see her make fashion art. Whether it is funky hair colours and styles or even sporting a latex dress, Nana Ama McBrown pulls no punches with her style. We rate her with the ranking of legendary.
2. Lydia Forson
The ever-radiant Lydia Forson gave us a whirlwind of looks this year. Versatile as with her acting, Lydia gave us varying looks from afro soul-sista to nubian Queen with the locks on key. Lydia slays in at Number. 2
