PHOTOS: The 11 Most Controversial Fashion Stories Of 2011

How will we remember 2011? Probably as The Year When All That Stuff Happened. There was no shortage of scandal and intrigue, public unrest and famous people dying. But there were also weddings, births, record-breaking auctions and amazing clothes presented on every catwalk. Which is why we’d like to remember this year’s best moments in fashion — as a reminder that when the rest of the world talks, the fashion world listens, responds and grows.

There is absolutely nothing more beloved by the fashion world than a little controversy — and 2011 served it up in droves. All year long the industry argued about models who were too young or too androgynous, and produced photos that were accused of glorifying gluttony — or not eating enough. Add in a few lawsuits, a social revolution, a healthy pinch of racism, and some commercialized gender stereotyping, and you’ve got a year that won’t be forgotten any time soon.
