I am about to vote! I spent a lot of time reviewing these entries - after I shook myself out of the search for an everyday look (grin). This is the stuff of fantasy, movies, and advertising. If a few of you comment and tell us who you voted for in each category, I'll confess!
Let the voting begin!
Update 10/11: Come on...only one of you game to vote? I want to spill the beans on my choices, but I'm waiting for you to go first!
