As 2014 draws to a close, we Canadians have a lot to be thankful for. Quebec is once again run by a party that wants to stay in the country, Toronto is run by a guy who we don’t want to ship out of the country, and we continue to be hottest news on Gawker for the second year in a row. Politics aside, it’s also been a great year for Canadian fashion. With the surprise appearance of Solange Knowles at this fall’s World MasterCard Fashion Week to yet another star-studded TIFF, Canada has never looked so chic!
But we don’t need Americans crossing the 49th parallel to up our fashion street cred. We’ve got plenty of homegrown, Canadian fashionistas that we need to celebrate y’know, eh? From dazzling Toronto socialites with more money than God to designers carving a niche for us on the international style scene, our small population belies a nation with a whole lotta swagger.
We know other publications have done year-end round-ups of the best-dressed Canadians but we at Vv Magazine thought we’d throw our two cents in too. Given our own rebranding and facelift, it seemed only appropriate that we recognize those who are showing off their best faces as well. While the list itself is a little quirky, we think you’ll find it refreshing compared to just highlighting the “usual suspects.” Was that shady? Whatever — that’s why you come here, right?
Without further ado, here’s our Vv Magazine Best-Dressed Canadians of 2014 in no particular order.
