Most Stylish Artist – 2012 Diffuser.fm Music Awards
There are a lot of fashionable rockers out there on the indie scene, but who was the Most Stylish Artist of 2012? As we continue rolling out our first-ever Diffuser.fm Music Awards, we need your help to decide. Vote for the rocker you think had the year’s best look.
First up is Bat for Lashes (aka Natasha Khan), who certainly rocks an awesome haute hippie look. From cowboy hats to fedoras, Beck has always known how to top off his distinct outfits. No hats required for Cat Power. By switching to her adorable close-cropped, bleached-blonde mop, she helped determine the “in” haircut of the season. On a darker note, the Dum Dum Girls continue to wow us with their black threads, red lips and effortlessly cool throwback aesthetic.
Of course, no Most Stylish Artist list is complete without the Killers‘ Brandon Flowers, who these days is all gloss, no loss. Fun. certainly pull off suspenders and thick-rimmed specs. Garbage‘s Shirely Manson has been a style icon for years, while newcomer Frank Ocean definitely brought the headband back. Love her or hate her, style chameleon Lana Del Rey can pull off just about any look, from upscale GQ cover girl to thrift-shop doll, and we can’t forget about No Doubt‘s Gwen Stefani, who has been rocking original looks for decades.
Continuing with our list of Most Stylish Artist nominees, it was an undeniably big 2012 for Florence + the Machine‘s flame-haired Florence Welch. Ditto Jack White; from porkpie to fedora, he’s another rocker who loves his hats — and his snazzy suits.
