Celebrities have access to designer brands, the most expensive accessories and normally have a team of stylists and beauty gurus on hand to make them look fabulous! So it’s no wonder that often in life, we want to mimic them. Celebrity style icons are all around us in this world of instant access and social media so we can see our favourite celebrity looks and copy them almost exactly. Even if we are using knock-off Gucci! Here’s a list of our ultimate celebrity style icons you need to mimic this year!
1. Lisa from Blackpink
If you haven’t already heard of Blackpink, you will soon enough! This four-person Korean girl group is slowly but surely taking over the world. Now, while they all look incredible, Lisa particularly stands out in this group. This fashion queen originally hails from Thailand but has now become the most followed Kpop star on Instagram. And it’s not hard to see why!
Her outfits are to die for. Whether she’s onstage in a sexy two-piece outfit when she’s performing a dance routine or keeping it casual in denim jeans and a baggy jumper at the airport Lisa always look, chic, fierce and fabulous!
2. Michelle Obama
So I guess this one is kind of obvious. But Michelle always freaking kills it! As America’s first lady she always looked incredibly classy and graceful and she hasn’t missed a beat since leaving the White House! With the grace of Audrey Hepburn resonating through her outfit choice and killer looks Mrs. Obama is always a force to be reckoned with no matter where she goes.
And she has definitely got a little riskier with her fashion choices since hanging up her crown. This was no more apparent than when she stopped in Brooklyn as part of her Becoming book tour. She rocked a gorgeous, yellow dress with sparkly, silver thigh-high heels to match. All from Balenciaga, she truly looked like a vision!
3. Ariana Grande
The princess of cute had to make this list! She is known for her signature high ponytail and long baggy jumper with thigh-high heels. Sometimes with some cat ears thrown in for good measure! And we have certainly never said Thank u next to any of her outfits! She really has evolved from her squeaky clean Nickelodeon days and bloomed into a chic fashionista who is always setting trends.
But whether she decides to go for her classic look or switches it up for the stage with cute short skirts and crop tops, she always looks good. Recently she has also been rocking some super short, puffy, baby doll dresses that she looks adorable in! Her onstage glamour also spreads to the red carpet where she has worn some truly fabulous pieces. Most Notably her Sistine Chapel inspired dress by Vera Wang that she wore to the religion-themed Met gala in 2018. We do miss her cat ears though!
4. Taylor Swift
Swift always keeps it classy and chic. She really does have that red lip classic thing that we all love! Swift does class Audrey Hepburn as one of her personal celebrity style icons so I guess it’s no surprise that T Swizz makes the list. She always looks elegant and is immaculately dressed.
She sometimes wears nice fitted trousers that help accentuate her slim physique. But overall, her go-to look is a pretty, girly, and colourful dress. She loves to dress extremely feminine and girly. But she always keeps a little signature Taylor class no matter what.
The Met Gala has been mentioned already in this article but we couldn’t talk about celebrity style icons without mentioning the queen of the Gala herself, Rihanna. No matter how busy this woman is between running her successful business, building her empire and releasing chart-topping music, it never stops her from looking like a goddess.
Whether she is turning heads at the Gala in show-stopping outfits, wearing lingerie as casual street wear or dressing down in military-style cargos and a t-shirt she always looks amazing. Even when she wears totally sheer clothing on the red carpet! She literally always looks amazing!
