The 2011 Fashion Leader Awards were announced this week by lifestyle magazine publisher Takarajima. Actress Ryoko Yonekura, 36, model Nozomi Sasaki, 23, TV personality Becky, 27, AKB48 singer Tomomi Itano, 20, and model Rinka, 38, picked up this year's honors.

Rinka, who gave birth to her first child on Nov 18, was unable to attend the gala event and instead sent a video message, saying she was enjoying her time at home with her baby.

Yonekura said she is looking forward to spending Christmas at a hotel, eating and drinking with her friends.

Nothing personal, but besides you, who really cares?

How is Tomomi Itano a fashion leader? I thought all her trashy outfits were chosen by her pimp Akimoto.

I love the red stockings. I just ordered some on line but they will not mail them to Japan. Why?

Had to send to a friend in the states and have them sent here.

What would really be news is to learn that any of these people actually chose or bought the clothes on which this award purports to have judged.

If these were the fashion leaders, the rest of the pack must be downright scary. The girls are attractive enough, but the clothes look like they came from the extras wardrobe in the Alice in Wonderland movie.

JG: Why buy red stockings from outside Japan? Plenty for sale here. Just curious.

I just googled Tomomi. Seriously hot. Great legs. Cute feet. Looks really nice in skimpy outfits.

While they were naming people, they should have gone ahead and given two of these girls sir names.

I wonder when Itano wore that (arguably) awful dress. Tastes differ, don't they?

Well, if we begin talking about shopping for stockings, I can tell you that Japanese industry revolutionized the production of seamless stockings and pantie stockings (tights) half a century ago and has continued to be on top of developments with the latest colorful, anything goes trend. Unless you are unable to go out, visit any women's hosiery / stockings / etc. store and you'll find your red stockings. And then ebay sells Japanese stockings imported from Japan.

Thanks presto345: dress tastes differ eh? You can say that again. Great selection of tights/stockings here, not sure what point JG is trying to make. From where she is in Shinjuku she doesn't have to go far to select from a huge choice.

Yonekura is very beautiful. I just hope that she isn't a typical giggly immature Japanese lady.

I am not in Shinjuku.

I am utilizing the power of the Yen to buy a lot and cheap.

Why would they block their own exports from being imported.

Having a lot of sexy stockings sent to a base friend. Cheap...should arrive just in time for me to make my New Years Cards

Looks like Takarajima hired some marketing/ promotion company who just trawled the media for the names of 5 popular girls, then gave them this 'prestigious' 2011 Fashion Leader Awards.

Or it was just a simple 'Pick 5 names from these 6 type of 'anketto?' Choose from: Ryoko Yonekura, Nozomi Sasaki, Becky, Tomomi Itano, Rinka and Naoto Kan!
