2010 has almost come to and end. But we won’t celebrate the new year until we’ve looked back on a fantastic year of fashion. We’ve collected news on the most memorable collaborations, trends, upcoming models and other fashion facts you must not forget.

We made a top of 40 items. Earlier we presented news facts 1 to 10 and here are the next five highlights:

11. Miranda Kerr preggers

Many Victoria’s Secret angels were having babies this year. One of them is Miranda Kerr who got married to Orlando Bloom only a month after their engagement. She also posed pregnant & naked for W magazine.

12. Karl Lagerfeld as busy as ever

In September Karl Lagerfeld canceled his Karl Lagerfeld fashion show during the Paris Fashion Week stating he didn’t want to do catwalk collections for the brand anymore. Soon after that he announced his new collaboration with Macy’s. And in the meantime he shot the Pirelli calender for 2011, showing his favorite models as Greek goddesses. Never a dull moment with Karl Lagerfeld.

13. Roberto Cavalli & Kenzo: 40 years

Both Roberto Cavalli (29-09) and Kenzo (05-10) both celebrated their forty years in the fashion industry. Antonio Marras held a great tribute show in Paris in which the best of forty years of Kenzo was brought together. Tommy Hilfiger celebrated 25 years of the all American brand and Marc Jacobs’ brand turned 10. Hurray!

14. Tom Ford is back

This year Tom Ford made his long awaited comeback. And he did so in a very smart way. He hired Beyonce and Julianne Moore (among others) as models, presented his collection for a small audience and allowed nobody but Terry Richardson to take pictures. It made up for a great buzz on the collection, the models and the guests. Tom Ford also guest edited French Vogue (he put Dutch model Daphne Groeneveld on the cover) and (after A Single Man) has plans for a second movie.

15. Trend: leather for summer

Wearing leather was a big trend during the summer of 2010. With Chloe’s and Celine’s collections as inspiration leather shorts, skirts en tees were mixed and matched into our wardrobes. All of a sudden it became clear leather is no longer only reserved for winter.
