We are all aware that fashion icons of the past include Marilyn Monroe and Audrey Hepburn. But who are our modern day fashion icons?
Who’s style represents our fashion sense to coming generations, and who’s celebrity style makes enough of a statement to be noticed?
Here are ten fashionistas who have earned the title, and what their style exudes.
The self-proclaimed queen of pop, she can go from street to couture in 60 seconds.
Slicked back glamour or rasta princess, the best way to embody this fashion sense is to be unequivocally yourself.
Feeling pink ruffles and frills?
Wear it with swagger, or get risque in sheer shimmer fabric.
Distressed denim, all things bedazzled, the perfect pair of heels, red, yellow and green and an attitude to match will be your new go to, as well as these swag sunnies.
Love them or hate them, the Kardashians are the original reality TV fashionistas.
Channel their style through embracing your curves: a little cleavage never hurt anyone.
Always be dolled up in form fitting attire with lashes and brows on fleek.
Think contour, bodycon, and luxury.
A nude colour palette, lash extensions and Louboutins.
These sunnies will only add to your glamouratzi vibe:
Mother of the little monsters (what she calls her fans) is nothing if not eccentrically unique.
While the days of the meat dress are behind her, she still maintains her quirky, over the top, out there style.
Emulate it for day to day life by adding fun, themed pieces to your basics.
Use colours to add depth to your theme of choice.
These sunnies have an insect/bee vibe, pair with something mustard and you’re all set.
Face paint optional.
Sarah Jessica Parker
The ultimate fashion mogul, from her Sex & The City days and long after.
She embodies the Carrie Bradshaw we all know and love: always classy, and always put together with a little extra pizazz.
Pleats, frills, the ultimate in ladylike sophistication with a twist.
These two tone sunnies are the perfect mix of class with sass:
Demure, royal and oh so pretty, the new generation of royals are giving us princess envy all over again (or Duchess as it may be).
The colour palette may be subdued, but muted tones are your friend, and conservative silhouettes can be flattering.
Ooze elegance in pleated dusky silk, and don’t forget your fascinator, or your sunnies to match if the weather permits.
An inspiring woman not only in her fashion sense.
Bring your powerful feminist vibe out in A-line printed dresses and figure flattering fit.
Flares or wide leg pantsuits and a button up cardigan in a vibrant shade.
Throw on a pair of strong statement sunnies and continue saving the world, one person at a time.
While relatively new influences to the fashion scene, they are none the less impactful.
Gigi and Bella are a fashion force to be reckoned with.
Most recently known for adding a feminine twist to masculine pieces.
Think pin straight hair and bare midriffs, and of course statement sunglasses like these Givenchy beauties below, with a unisex vibe.
The queen B, is a force of nature.
She is a fashion statement all on her own.
Channel her style in metallics, sheer fabrics, embellished everything, structured pieces, florals, mixed prints, body suits, and a retro boho vibe.
Bring on the red lipstick and the pin up bangs, and of course the bedazzled sunnies.
A classic, supermodel, bringing black back, a touch of rocker babe, always simple, sleek and sexy.
A leopard print coat over a black band tee and skinny jeans, or faux fur and combat boots.
Throw on a hat and some subtle cat eye sunnies for that added mystery.
Cara, Chloe and Poppy.
Bring on the statement brows and edgy style like Cara or opt for flower child fashion like Poppy.
Either way, keep an eye on these three for fashion inspiration galore.
Throw on a pair of Cara inspired specs all the better to see them with:
