Favoring the Style of Alexa Chung

Whose style is more original than Alexa Chung’s? In magazines we all see the “Who wore it better?” section of stars wearing the same things and we often see pieces that it seems like every celebrity and style icon owns. With so many stars with the same stylists and the popular labels that create trends for the masses, it’s easy to fall into on of two things: the carbon copy stylish “it girl” (styled in the hottest new shoes, designer everything, lust worthy bag with a two year wait list that for some reason every famous person seems to have) or the the girl who tries so hard to be different that she ends up in the “Fashion fails” section of the magazine. Very rarely, if ever, have I seen AC in an outfit that lands her in either section. She appears to me to have the perfect blend of being relevant, yet original. She always mixes designer fashion with vintage finds, resulting in a look that never fails. Although, like every one, AC finds inspiration in fashion (figures, shows, etc.), she finds a way to make her look her own and constantly evolves and updates her style. She does this by finding fresh takes on things she owns and by including a blend of both high and low designers. Every one can appreciate the style AC from the industry insiders sitting next to her front row at fashion shows or fans that follow her via social media. It’s no wonder that her quirky style has made her a fashion phenomenon and possibly the ultimate British style icon.

Favoring The Style Of Isabel Marant

Isabel Marant

Isabel Marant2

If you had to chose one brand name to wear every day, what would it be? When that question was posed to me, I chose Isabel Marant. IM is one of my favorite labels, and since so many of the line’s clothes, shoes, and accessories are what some Isabel fans deem works of art (that can be worn), it’s safe to say that the French house of fashion’s owner and designer, Isabel Marant, has got to be one of the most favored and stylish people on the planet. IM’s designs have gained a significant following, bordering cult status, from models and actresses to bloggers and regular non-famous yet fashion-conscious people. IM creates iconic pieces that create such a buzz that those hot items end up sell out like hot potatoes, generating wait lists for things out of stock or remorse for not snapping things up before becoming sold out. Like her line, IM is synonymous with Parisian casual chic. Her collections are always talked about and lusted over, and IM continues to create things that woman want season after season. She’s always seen in her own creations; therefore, always in the coolest things: boho-chic separates with ethnic prints and embellishments, bomber jackets, trousers, over-sized tees, funky skirts, furs, and of course, the hottest shoes and sneakers on the market. IM truly inspires, she’s like the best dressed girl in the class, who doesn’t care if you wear the same things she does. Actually, she encourages it.

Favoring the Stand-out Style of Freida Pinto

How do we stand out in a crowd? It wouldn’t take very much if we looked like Freida Pinto, but even in a sea of unbelievably beautiful and stylish people, FP manages to shine like the star that she is. At every appearance she makes, FP never goes unnoticed. Her choices never shy away from bright colors, unique textures, and bold silhouettes. Just like she’s got her hand-on-hip and ready for-the-camera pose down, her stunning red-carpet style is equally perfected. I’m always excited when I see more ethnic celebrities gain deserved attention and success, and FP one of the very few Asian/Indian woman in the United States that has taken center stage, all while doing it in style and grace.

Favoring The Style Of It Girl Cara Delevingne

How does one possess the “It” quality and is there even a definition for this rather ambiguous term? I have been talking almost daily about how beautiful and stylish Cara Delevingne is; therefore, I thought it only appropriate to post about how much I favor this new “It girl.” Although I’m not the biggest fan of the term since it commonly describes so many other young women in fashion or show biz, I can’t think of any one other than Cara who has lately drawn so much attention and popularity among the young and the fashionable. After first noticing CD while shopping on the ASOS website, she soon became a familiar face in campaigns such as Chanel, Burberry, and Zara, on the runway of Victoria Secret’s fashion show, and when gracing the cover of British Vogue, named the Model of the Year. What I love most about CD is while she can be as glam as the rest of and the best of the supermodels, she doesn’t take herself too seriously and is often seen posing for pics, making silly faces or goofing around. Her spunky street style, charming persona, and of course her attractive features all contribute to her “It” factor, drawing all of us in with her magnetic force.
