At the end of the summer, InStyle launched its first Social Media Awards, recognizing the best bloggers, YouTuber's tweeters, Instagramers, and pinners in the worlds of fashion, beauty, and celebrity. The races across all 10 categories were tight, and after the two-week voting period closed, we recorded one of our highest number of votes (over 350,000!) on the site ever. So, we think it's safe to say the first-ever awards were a success! But more important are the achievements of our winners, being announced today on InStyle.com and in our December issue, which hits newsstands next Friday, November 15. So without further ado, here are the folks who tweeted, grammed, and pinned their way to No. 1, thanks to your votes.
