While most young starlets seek out off-screen attention with their crazy antics (ahem, miss Lohan), Emma Watson garners attention for being a classy and hard-working young woman. Being a part of arguably the most successful franchise ever would usually be enough for the average person, but Emma hasn’t stopped there. Instead, Emma keeps herself busy (and out of the tabloids) by attending Brown University, serving as the face and spokesmodel of Lancôme, and recently working on two upcoming films: The Perks of Being a Wallflower and Bling Ring. Impressive. And although she literally grew up in front of our eyes, Emma has never missed a beat when it comes to her life and style.
As former editor of Harpers Bazaar Russia, Miroslava Duma knows a thing or two about fashion. Even with a petite frame, she knows no bounds when it comes to clothes and accessories, often pushing the boundaries of her unique personal style. You can see the thought she puts into every look too, with each detail styled to perfection to make it all just seem effortless. Teach us your ways, master! Now Mira has her hands full as a mom, fashion consultant, and founder of her own magazine: Buro247 in Russia (you may need Google translate for that one). See some of our favorite “Mira moments” below:
Everybody loves Alexa Chung. And we think we know why….
Maybe its that this British export and TV host not only has a big and quirky personality, but a unique personal style that speaks just as loud and clear. There’s no denying that Alexa has something to say about fashion either, she’s always mixing things that don’t seem like they should go together, but somehow do.
Stylist-turned-mother-turned-designer-turned reality show star, Rachel Zoe, is the one of the biggest tastemakers in the industry. This highly coveted stylist is responsible for dressing the likings of Anne Hathaway, Molly Sims, Kate Hudson, Demi Moore, Cameron Diaz, and just about any big name you can think of. Her petite frame and impeccable taste is easily recognizable in her own signature look: boho chic. Maxi dresses, wide legged trousers, oversized frames, and killer accessories? See: Rachel Zoe.
With her flame red hair and risk-taking style, it’s hard not to notice Taylor Tomasi Hill. This fellow Texan (from Dallas, what!) is the former Fashion Market Editor for Teen Vogue and until recently, the Style & Accessories Editor for Marie Claire. Taylor recently accepted the coveted Artistic Director position at Moda Operandi, this little company you might have heard of that allows you to pre-order styles right off the runway months before they hit stores. Yes, that exists.
Hollywood has had a major crush on Blake Lively lately, and so have we. This young starlet is the epitome of a “blonde bombshell”: tall, skinny, beautiful, and always well dressed. You probably know her best as Serena Van Der Woodson on the over-dramatic show about over-privlaged kids who are over-dressed for every occasion, Gossip Girl. (DISCLAIMER: not hating on GG, I’ve been addicted since episode 1…when is it coming back?!)
