Whether it’s on the red carpet or running around town; celebrities are known for setting fashion trends. Although every moment of their lives isn’t about style, their fashion choices inspire the public. Fashion is about taking risks and showing some personality. Some celebrities like to follow the current trends while others become trendsetters. Trendsetters often develop their own iconic style either because the celebrity becomes known for a specific look or having designer pieces named after them. An iconic style generally never goes out of fashion. It may fade with time but it always comes back! Let’s look at some celebrities with iconic styles that will always be considered fashionable.
- Marilyn Monroe
Even the youth of today is familiar with the sexy style of Marilyn Monroe. Her iconic inclinations always involved red lips, winged liner and beautiful locks of hair. In addition, Marilyn had a thing for wearing heels even if she was playing baseball. She didn’t believe in bad hair days since a well-placed scarf can cover stubborn hair for a fashionable look.
- Audrey Hepburn
Audrey was known for beauty, elegance, style and her little black dress. Audrey was the original creator of the LBD (little black dress) as she showed the world that all you need is a simple black dress and some lavish accessories to make this style work for just about any event. Hepburn even went a little further as she was able to pull off boyish femininity with collared shirts and pixie haircuts. This style is still in fashion today.
- Grace Kelly
Grace Kelly maintained her classic and sophisticated look on stage and off. As Grace was her name, she delighted in an elegant style which exists even to this day. Grace favored feminine dresses with unique custom-made tops and calf-skimming skirts which emphasized her tiny waist. Her iconic fashion even caused the influential brand, Hermes, to rename one of its trendy bags “the Kelly” after Grace.
- Jennifer Aniston
Jennifer Aniston gained worldwide fame as fashion seeking, and emotional, Rachael Green in the popular television show “Friends”. The role earned her a Primetime Emmy Award, a Screen Actors Guild Award and a Golden Globe Award. Her iconic hairstyle quickly became one of the most requested hairstyles of all time. She is famous for her flawless grooming both on the red carpet and during casual outings.
- Jennifer Lopez
Jennifer Lopez has been in the spotlight for years despite the fact that her parents believed a career in the entertainment industry was an unrealistic goal for a Hispanic girl. She is an actress, singer, author, fashion designer and producer. Jennifer is also famous for wearing astonishing evening gowns which typically show her feminine curves. In 2000, Jennifer Lopez attended the 42nd Grammy Awards and wore a sheer exotic green Versace silk chiffon dress that was cut with a neckline beyond the navel. This high-profile dress was a turning point in designer Donatella Versace’s career due to the fact that it made this designer a household name.
- Selena Gomez
While some celebrities almost bare it all, others dress for success in their own way. Selena Gomez wears her style in a classy sophisticated manner. She seems to always dress her age even when other young pop stars are selecting cleavage-revealing attire. Selena tends to favor a black and white monochrome look with her black jumpers, white pant suits and sleek evening wear. Nevertheless, she always looks fashionable whether she’s on stage or not.
- Taylor Swift
Everyone knows Taylor Swift for her beautiful voice, heartfelt lyrics and blonde locks. However, she is also known as a fashionable icon for rocking the girl-next-door trend that every girl admires. While Taylor can pull off the cheeky rocker chic that emits her fun personality, she also catches the public eye with her glamorous evening wear on the red carpet.
- Lady Gaga
Lady Gaga is known for her songs and tours but she is also notorious for her flamboyant fashion attire. It doesn’t matter if Gaga is out for a night on the town, on stage or on a fashion runway. Her affinity for avant-garde artistic fashions is proudly worn by her at all times and has made her outrageous style iconic.
