Celebrities have all the right friends in all the right places. So naturally they’re the first ones to come across, own and even set all of the latest fashion trends. Looking to a celebrity style icon is a great way to figure out and get your head around the latest trends. You can look to those whose style you usually admire and see if what they’re wearing is for you, or if you want to avoid this particular trend like the plague! If you’re still not sure, here is a list of 10 celebrity style icons to take notice of right now!
1. Hailee Steinfeld
We first started to take notice of Hailee Steinfeld when she appeared in Pitch Perfect 2. Since then she has become a prominent figure in the film, music and fashion world. Hailee is a key celebrity style icon and she seems to be able to make anything she wears look great! Not to mention her pink dress made of flowers and feathers she wore to the Vanity Fair Oscar’s party this year. She looked incredible, but lets be honest, anyone else would have looked like a pink big bird!
2. Elizabeth Gillies
We all remember Elizabeth Gillies as the mean short, tempered Jade in Victorious. Always dressed in black with her dark makeup, her characters style has followed her somewhat into adulthood. This celebrity style icon ALWAYS has a fluid mix between looking fierce and elegant, a look that few people can pull off effectively. From yellow check co-ords with all the 90’s Clueless vibes; to a satin maxi dress. The girl always knows how to dress.
3. Debby Ryan
When it comes to trouser suits Debby Ryan is the celebrity style icon to turn to. Whether it’s a bright block colour or a printed suit, she knows exactly how to pull them off and style them, without looking like a bored business woman. The same goes for maxi dresses, Debby seems to be able to pick out the perfect dresses without looking odd and frumpy.
4. Nina Nesbitt
Nina Nesbitt has been a favourite celebrity style icon for years. Especially way back in 2014 when she had long hair and wore bright red lipstick, I just remember wanting to be her. Still now, 5 years on Nina seems to have a knack for taking casual pieces and dressing them up for any occasion simply by accessorising in the right way or by wearing the right coat! She is a definite street style celebrity style icon!
5. Adowa Aboah
Adowa Aboah is a great celebrity style icon. She is again, able to turn simple street style pieces into something much more simply with accessories, but also isn’t afraid to try out crazy and colourful makeup looks, which always end up looking great and definitely make you want to be more adventurous. Even better is that Adowa isn’t just a celebrity style icon and model, she is also an activist and founder of Gurls Talk. She is an inspiration in style and substance.
6. Emma Connolly
A real celebrity style icon. Emma Connolly knows how to style herself. From trousers and trainers; to crazy patterned co-ords; to dresses and heeled boots, it’s all there! It’s even better because following Emma’s style couldn’t be easier as she has helped to create multiple of her own collections with Nasty Gal, so you can look just like Emma Connolly, even on a budget!
7. Jodie Comer
Now we all remember Jodie Comer’s iconic big pink dress in Killing Eve. But this celebrity style icon has even more to give. Her slicked/brushed back hair would make most of us look either like a drowned rat, or a greasy mess in desperate need of a shower. But not Jodie, paired with a suit or something tailored; it’s a powerful look that no ones going to mess with.
8. FKA Twigs
The British celebrity style icon has all sorts of iconic looks that would make anyone else look like a crazy person. From statement sunglasses, hairstyles and crazy amounts of sparkles and glitter, I don’t think there’s anything that this girl can’t pull off. If you want to try out something different and don’t know where to start, FKA Twigs is definitely the one to turn to for inspiration.
9. Maddie Ziegler
All of us probably remember Maddie as the talented little girl from Dance Moms. Although Maddie is still teenager, she has insane amounts of style. She always dresses so well for someone so young, and even though her style predominantly involves trainers and hoodies, or jeans and a nice top Maddie definitely knows her style.
10. Lana Del Rey
With fashion trends from the past making a reappearance in recent years, it’s no wonder that Lana Del Rey is a celebrity style icon. Lana manages to incorporate a combination of the 60’s styles with current fashion trends. She is the one to turn to when you have a unique piece you’re not sure how to style, or just want to try out something new!
