Top Definition
A person devoted to fashion clothing, particularily unique or high fashion.
A person not to be called a fashionista would be someone who obsessivly follows trends. REAL fashionistas do not believe in trends.
That type of person would be more correctly labeled a fashion whore or a shallow bitch.

The fashion police.
Fashionista is the lexical combination (see 'portmanteau') of the words Fashion, which is the socially decided (see 'groupthink') garb to be worn by those wishing to be accepted in high society, and Sandinista, a Nicaraguan authoritarian political party.
Despite recent trends in attempt to make this term more acceptable it must be noted that its etymology lends major negative conotation and it is ill-advised to use this word as a positive qualifier.
"Did you see what she was wearing? I'm no fashionista but those are the ugliest shoes I've ever seen."

Someone with too much time one their hands. They only need an opinion to survive in the workplace and they can get away with bad mouthing people for the heck of it.
-What would you like to be when you grow up, Joanie?
-Well, I don't like to do very much, so I think I'll be a fashionista.

An often derogative term for a follower of fashion.

"fashionistas" are often said to be shallow, and care about nothing but looking good and wearing the latest trends.
Just because i'm wearing Dior d'tricks, and a galliano suit doesn't make me shallow, I'm no fashionista.

A person, usually female, who keeps the large majority of their attention and interest on their clothing/make-up/general appearance, and cares little of anything else. They typically judge others, particularly potential mates, solely on looks and cliques. In lamen's terms, a fashionable sheep.

Someone that takes fashion so seriously that it has usurped
all their other systems of belief.
It has become their politics.
They rule with an iron fist and
utilize fear more so then any
form of creativity to maintain their
dominance in the style hierarchy.
They are insecure, lonely, vacuos,
after ten minutes you realize all
they have to offer is the only thing
they've talken about, their new shoes.
The following statement would be made by a fashionista, "I really was in love
with him/her but then he/she started doing these colour combos that were really insensitive."

Someone who knows everything about fashion. Fashionistas arnet always 'preppys', for example I've paired a judas priest shirt with a chanel jacket before.
Look it her with that street chic bag and manolo heels, damn shes one fashionista.
