Designers, photographers, and editors couldn't stop talking about these two songstresses in 2012. Not only do they both have a unique signature style, their tunes are downright anthemic. (For the uninitiated, check out Rita's "How We Do (Party)" and Azealia's "Liquorice.") Azealia was even the fall face of T by Alexander Wang, so we have a feeling that we have a lot to look forward to from these ladies in the new year.
Our September cover girl seemed to change her look each time we blinked this year. From new tattoos, to bleaching her hair, to chopping off her famous bun, Miley was not afraid to experiment with her style in 2012 — and we loved watching her transformation!
