Don’t mistake them for just a bunch of best dressed superlatives. The Carolinas 75 Most Stylish celebrates people in the fashion, beauty, business, entertainment and non profit industries, who are making a real impact in the community. We’ve celebrated the Most Stylish People in Charlotte since 2008. In 2012 we introduced the Triangle’s 25 Most Stylish People. Now, in 2015 we are pleased to introduce The Carolinas 75 Most Stylish People of 2015.
