While many people idolize or look up to celebrities when it comes to fashion, you wouldn’t expect a celebrity to be inspired by another star. However, these 5 celebs all adore how someone else dresses, and look up to their style. Some just like stars that stand out for their originality or quirky taste, while others want to emulate how elegant or classy another star is. These 5 stylish celebs have all revealed whose fashion-sense they find inspiring, and for some it’s people you wouldn’t expect!
Carrie admires stars who always look elegant and classy, which is what she also aims for: “My style icons are people like Charlize Theron and Reese Witherspoon. They are beautiful, but in a natural way. They look like they take care of themselves but don’t do anything too crazy. They always look and act classy. I always just try to choose clothes that I feel good in. I really don’t focus on what the reviews will be, whether they are rave or not. I just want to feel good about myself.”
Girls Aloud singer Sarah loves that Rihanna embraces her curves, which is something that inspires her: “Rihanna is my style icon – she’s got such a great figure, all curves. It’s so nice to see that in an industry where curves are few and far between. Best of all, she’s not afraid to show them off! We should embrace our curves and enjoy looking like women.”
Rihanna admires unique celebs who are known for their original style:”Chloe Sevigny is so sick. The Olsen twins are sick too. Debbie Harry, definitely, and Vivienne Westwood is top notch. There are a couple of guys though – Johnny Depp’s style is just effortless and, for me, Rod Stewart gets it right.”
Kimberly admires celebrities who try to be different and do their own thing when it comes to fashion: ”Alexa Chung is my style icon, she’s absolutely gorgeous and has fantastic fashion sense. Sienna Miller has always been up there- she’s got some great looks and I also love old school Kate Moss from the 90’s grunge days.”
Keira is drawn to quirky stars when taking her own style inspiration: “I don’t think I’m confident enough yet to be used to being in the limelight because of my style. But I loved the swan dress Bjork wore to the 2001 Oscars. I’d love to have the courage to do the same. Helena wears whatever she wants and looks amazing.”
