2011 has been an incredible year, sartorially speaking. From Anne Hathaway's eight costume changes at the Academy Awards to Diane Kruger...well, whenever the woman puts on clothes, a few of the ladies that didn't make the cut were this close. Ultimately, we decided that the criteria to make Joonbug's "Top Looks of 2011" list lay within three very simple (and very visible) requirements: originality, memorability and game-change factor. Once we began to whittle down our large list, we found that very few looks - no matter how much we loved them - fit these requirements.

Meet Your New Brooklyn Barneys: Barneys Co-op has been shopping around for a Brooklyn location since December, finally finding a brownstone-like home at 194 Atlantic at the corner of Court. There are high hopes for this 6,300 square foot location, as this chic-luxe addition to the neighborhood should transform the street into a real powerhouse. Meanwhile, Brooklyn natives still have to travel waters to Manhattan until the new store opens during the second week of September. Rumor has it that this new Barneys will launch on Fashion's Night Out. Ideal, no?
