FMF Reader Poll: Designers of the Decade

This weekend I ran across a list from Paste Magazine ranking the "10 Best Designers of the Decade." I'm not sure what their criteria was, but here is their list:
10. Christian Siriano
9. Sweet P Vaughn
8. Vivienne Westwood
7. Stella McCartney
6. Jason Wu
5. Thakoon
4. Zac Posen
3. Diane Von Furstenberg
2. Alexander McQueen
1. Marc Jacobs

I could go on all day about things I don't like about the list. Marc deserves the #1 spot, no doubt. I'm happy to see Alexander McQueen in a much deserved second place. I love that Christian Siriano made the list, but I think he's the only Project Runway alum who really deserves it. Having Sweet P on the list is just weird (I couldn't even find an piece to add to the image for this post), and she should not out-rank Christian. I know DVF has made a comeback recently, but third place is far too high if she should even rank. Where's Gareth Pugh? I also could make an argument for the revival of Balenciaga. What about designers with diffusion lines that are dressing the masses like Vera Wang?

Vote for the designers you agree with below and give us your Top 10 list (or any number) in the comments.

Valentino, Miu Miu and Ann Demeulemeester.

Although there is one pair of shoes from Dior to die for. Look at the buttery heavenly color combination! look at the details and the heel!

Sweet P makes absolutely zero sense. And definitely not above Christian!
