Who's going to be our Next Big Style Blogger ? We asked, and did you ever answer! More than 600 submissions, tens of thousands of votes, and too many fabulously unique style snaps to count—our intrepid judges, Refinery29 editor-in-chief Christene Barberich and creative director Piera Gelardi, had their work cut out for them in selecting our five seriously talented finalists, who hail from big towns, little cities, and everywhere in between. The criteria? While popular vote was definitely taken into account (congrats to the five Readers' Choice bloggers!), the finalists were ultimately selected by the quality of their blogs and their submission—and yes, we really did read every single one! We'll put our fab five to the test with hometown video challenges, which will be chronicled right here and on their individual profile pages. We're psyched to see what they can do, but until then, time for a little getting to know you. Get ready to be sucked into their archives—don't say we didn't warn you! Click through to meet the online world's newest and coolest shooting stars.
