Ah, 2008. What can we say? It was like 2007, except maybe a little bit worse. Minus Obama winning, naturally.

We would like to remind our readers that, in the words of Tim Gunn, "We need clothes, do we need fashion? No. And fashion, when it's good, comes out of a context that's societal and cultural and historic and economic and political -- so it's of a time and a place."

In other words, fashion is like every other art -- if it's good, it describes the sociopolitical and economic hodgepodge from whence it came.

But also, it lets us post pictures of Twilight's freakish yet fetching actor Robert Pattinson, so really it's a win/win for us.

Please join us for a highly subjective, totally biased walk down memory lane for the Naughty and Nice fashion and fads of 2008!

Check back tomorrow for Trends of 2008: The Naughty List.

See what made the Nice List in 2007.
