As 2014 comes to a close all of the “best of”, “worst of” lists highlighting the top 10’s of 2014 are piling in and one of the most recent is kind of shocking.

With the awards season right around the corner, top designers are looking to put their best new looks on the hottest stars but apparently they have some competition they probably didn’t know to be worried about.

Google recently released their annual list of the “most searched fashion designers” and, while all the expected names are there including Valentino, Kate Spade and the late greats L’Wren Scott and Oscar de la Renta, there is one surprising name above them all.

This year, 19-year old YouTube star Bethany Mota tops the list of the most searched fashion designer.

While she began her social media stardom by purchasing cosmetics, testing them out and giving tutorials, earning her YouTube page 8 million subscribers, she soon branched out and created her own fashion line for Aeropostale.

Mota’s Google search count could of course have a lot to do with the fact she was a star on the latest season of Dancing With the Stars and while she was doing that her clothing line became an immediate hit.

Bethany hit number one on the list ahead of Kate Spade, Oscar de la Renta, Rachel Roy, L’Wren Scott, Valentino, Alexander Wang, Sherri Hill, Edith Flagg and Tina Knowles respectivel. Very impressive for a 19-year old!
