Favoring the Style of Alexa Chung

27 Jun

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 and Smile of Behati Prinsloo

What makes some one’s style so favorable to others? Whenever I see Behati Prinsloo, I am reminded that great style isn’t always the name brands one wears or the trends one follows. After first seeing BP in the Victoria Secret catalogs, then in magazine spreads, and most recently in a Free People shoot, I began following her on Instagram and became more and more enamored with her. I love that she describes herself as a “t-shirt and jeans kinda girl,” and despite being in an industry where looks can be “everything,” her street style gives off the impression that looks are nothing without that “something.” When it comes to BP, that something is her personality, which shines through in whatever she puts on, whether it’s for work or for leisure. Her style is so relatable, free-spirited, and surprisingly, comfortable. When I mean comfortable, I also mean she looks comfortable in her own skin as well as the clothes she’s in. She’s usually photographed make-up free, having fun, and most importantly smiling! Nothing makes some one more favorable to look at than a genuine smile, which can be the most stylish and important thing some one can put on.

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.

Favoring Rosie Huntington-Whiteley

Who have I never seen yet with one bad photo? In my opinion, it’s Rosie Huntington-Whitely. She is one of the best dressed actress/models who is always photographed – in photo shoots or paparazzi shots- and I have never seen her in one of those ‘Ooops’ moments. Even while traveling, walking around with her boyfriend, Jason Statham, or at a Premiere, RH-W always looks picture perfect. I suppose it’s because she keeps it pretty simple: designer sunglasses, stylish hats, skinny jeans/pants, boots, trendy jackets, and bags to envy. All of her bags end up on my wish list.

Style Favorite: Miranda Kerr

Can you believe how fast models get back into shape after having children? It’s amazing. I guess, if looking beautiful is your job, than you don’t really have a choice in the matter. Whatever Miranda Kerr did after giving birth and whatever she is doing now, she is looking better than ever! She is my absolute favorite Angel, and her style is super cute, just as she is. I think everything surrounding her in her life is adorable: her baby, her Yorkie Frankie, Orlando Bloom, the list goes on. Miranda’s style is simple, classic, but she mixes in really great pieces that stand out like funky boots (those Isabel Marant Berry Boots she’s in are to die for), a great bag, or a cool hat. She can basically pull of any pair of shorts, which she is often wearing, with those long, prefect legs. Even though she stole Orlando Bloom from me (only kidding), I love her girl next door look, her fashionable street style, and could never get tired of looking at her.

Style Icon: Kate Moss

Can Kate Moss ever look bad? In my opinion, the answer is no. Even if whatever she wears would look horrendous on any one else, she makes what she has on work and in an unbelievably cool way. I honestly think if she wore a plastic bag, she’d probably still look great, and every one who mimicked her would probably just look like a fool in a plastic bag. I think that’s the reason why Kate Moss is one of the most famous and most enduring models of our time. She is and has, for as long as I can remember, been sought after by the fashion industry’s most well known companies and designers, who know that she can just about sell or promote anything. Kate Moss is a reminder to me that there are certain intangibles when it comes to style. What can work for some one, might not work for some one else, but what always shines through is a level of confidence and comfort with one’s self that clothes can never compensate for. Some one who rocks a $5,000 outfit might not necessarily be “more fashionable” than some one in a $50 outfit. I do believe style is such an individual preference, but I always appreciate the familiar face of Kate Moss.
