Style Icons of Hollywood

Who do you think of when you’re pulling that little black dress to wear to a party tonight? Whose picture got you to try and rock that bright red lipstick today? Hollywood celebrities are not simply actors or singers. In today’s society they’ve become so much more to us. Be it on the count of us being bombarded these images of them pulling of the most amazing and sometimes even outrageous looks, or on the count of it just being engraved in our minds that they take the lead and we follow – we just can’t get enough of celeb fashionistas!

We’re listing top ten Hollywood style icons of all time! These are the girls who’ve taught us everything! Some of them have actually started trends that are no longer even considered trends, but wardrobe essentials, some are making us gush with delight every time a pap snaps a picture of their impeccable outfit and some are just plain out pushing the limits!

It’s a crazy mix but there’s no denying it, each one of these stars, old or new, has left it’s imprint on the way we view fashion today (or is heading in that direction):

Audrey Hepburn

You can’t start off a list dedicated to style icons with anybody else but her as far as I’m concerned, and I’m thinking you’d agree. After all this is the girl who’s introduced the one, the only – the Little Black Dress! Other than that let’s not forget the ballet flats, black Capri pants, belted men’s button down shirts… Everything she did she did with style and that is why Audrey remained a style icon for decades to come!

What she taught us?

Having all odds against you, a slender boyish figure in the world of curvy bombshells, doesn’t mean you can’t find your place and own it! Being an underdog doesn’t mean you’ll go under!

Jackie O

This lady was so much more than just a politician’s wife! This lady had STYLE! She’s the one who gave the meaning to the phrase shoe-obsessed, and what’s even more known – she’s the one who rocked the oversized sunglasses style oh so perfectly… Oh, and she knew how to suit up in style!

What she taught us?

You don’t have to let someone else’s light outshine your own! What you need to do is simply find a window through which you can shine! For Jackie O this window happened to be – fashion!

Katharine Hepburn

Another Hepburn makes the list! But we must include Katharine – she introduced the pants! I mean, she not only introduced the wide leg high wasted pants and made ‘em hot, she basically introduced to us a whole new kind of hot! It’s the empowered-confident-self-sufficient-strong-woman kind of hot and we LOVE IT!

What she taught us?

You don’t have to play by the rules all the time, sometimes inventing your own rules is actually the way to go!

Madonna

Can’t leave out the Material Girl herself! She’s been around for decades and she doesn’t seem to be slowing down at all! And I’m not just talking about her music, but her style as well. Madonna is a great example of the way style grows and develops throughout years, but also of the fact that you can switch it up and go with the times but still stay true to yourself!

What she taught us?

When it comes to style and fashion there are so many ways to reinvent yourself which is kind of the whole point – nothing stays still, especially not style! Being comfortable with one doesn’t mean you can’t pull off something different!

Rihanna

Riri is young, she’s hot, she’s talented and she knows how to stir things up – with her music and with her style! Just looking at her hair changing from, uh, one week to another basically, you can see that this girl knows how to stay on top and isn’t scared to try things out! And that’s what it’s all about! She can go from lacy red skin tight mermaid dress to a studded print tee and we’re still going to love what Rihanna serves up!

What she taught us?

Don’t be afraid to switch it up and experiment! You’re allowed to wonder and find what works best for you, but the thing is it’s now just about what you wear it’s how you wear it. You need to own whichever look you choose!

Gwen Stefani

Even though she’s stayed out of the lime light for the most part these last couple of years Gwen looks ah-may-zing every time we see one of the pictures of her just taking a stroll in the park with her boys. She’s just a stylish girls that Gwen Stefani…

What she taught us?

One – Platinum blond hair, pale skin and red lipstick are just a killer combo! And two – you can pass on your great style to your kids – it’s never too early to start.

Lady Gaga

What to even say about Lady Gaga? She does some crazy things but you know what? Even though it’s not ready-to-wear fashion most of the time and even though much of her outfits are kind of costume-like – she’s made it her own! And through them she’s expressing who she is and what she’s all about!

What she taught us?

Fashion is first and foremost a form of expression. It’s art. You’re allowed anything. You make it your own, wear it with pride and who’s to tell you it’s crazy, weird or too much?

Olivia Palermo

Former reality star, mostly known for her impeccable fashion sense! Olivia is so young but manages to pull out some serious fashion gems, form outfits that not many would pull together let alone wear so nicely, and always, ALWAYS look picture perfect! Now that’s she’s got a boyfriend who can match her inner fashionista – what can stop her?

What she taught us?

When you’re so infatuated with the thing you love (which in Olivia’s case is fashion) there’s just no room for eror!

Leighton Meester

Gossip girl star is just as much in love with fashion as Blair – the character she plays, is! She’s been known to make some strong fashion choices and still she’s not the one to commit any fashion crimes. Leighton even said that Blair is the one who got her to be more into fashion!

What she taught us?

It’s never too late to discover your love for fashion! Once you realize that you’ve got so much to play with when it comes to fashion and outfits – being fashionably fierce and making bold choices isn’t as scary anymore.

Kardashian Sisters

Even before we got to see it on Keeping up with the Kardashians reality show, the K sisters had a nose for fashion! They already had they boutique Dash working and Kim had even done some work as a fashion stylist! Nowadays they just look amazing and have a very recognizable style! It’s a great one, so, we’re ending up out list with Kim, Kortney and Khloe!

What they taught us?

You can dress any body type to perfection! All three Kardashian sisters have very different body types and they know well what styles fit them most. Use what you have and use it to your advantage!
