In 2022, an abundance of fashion emerged, compensating for the pandemic-induced social restrictions, as A-listers and influencers made up for lost time. This year, the stars went a step beyond, donning ensembles that held your gaze on the screen for an unhealthy amount of time. Keeping up proved to be quite a challenge.

With this in mind, we couldn’t resist continuing our Definitive Best Dressed List, highlighting stars who created unforgettable red-carpet moments, effortlessly tackled tricky themes, or made everyday dressing exude timeless chic. Africa’s most stylish celebrities graced us with their presence, entertaining and inspiring us with sartorial choices that emphasized the fabulous essence of fashion.

Earlier this month, we initiated our polling lines, covering a range of categories, including Street Style, Red Carpet, TV, Music, Best-Dressed Celebrity Couples, and more. The voting process was straightforward – choose your best-dressed personality in each category. Operating under a fair polling system, the celebrity with the highest votes emerged as the winner!

As decided by your votes and presented in no particular order, here are the 2023 winners of The Definitive Best Dressed List.
