She always looks good. Can we all agree on that? She wears a lot of black, so the bright red feather dress was a big surprise for everyone. Not just anyone could pull this off, but Leigh and her piercing stare make it look ever-so cool. By the way, anyone else think Leigh looks strangely like Trinity from The Matrix? Maybe that's why I love her.
My go-to girl. If I'm ever stumped on what to wear, I'll check out what she's wearing for inspiration. I love Alexa because she never looks like she's trying too hard. She's a girl who knows what looks good and sticks to her guns: oxfords, boyfriend sweaters, shorts with tights, mini dresses...it's all classic Alexa.
Whoever said "the French do it better" definitely had Julia in mind. Not only does she gravitate to my preferred wardrobe color of choice (black), she takes risks. She represents exactly what modern fashion should be: stylish, classy, but edgy. As the daughter of former French Vogue editor (Carine Roitfeld) it's no wonder that great and daring style is in her blood.
This is a no-brainer. Kate is on everyone's best dressed list; I apologize for not being original. She is the ultimate rule-breaker and trend-setter. But what's truly wonderful about Kate is when she's photographed walking around London, she's usually just wearing a t-shirt, jeans, a leather jacket, and her Ray-Bans. Yes, ladies, it IS that simple. Don't over-think it! Sometimes an oversized sweater, leggings, and some great flats can look just as amazing as a fur vest and Louboutin stilettos.
My favorite supermodel! Jessica has an ethereal beauty that can make anything look good. She can pull off ball gowns and couture, but Jess's personal style is quite grungy. She's often seen wearing band t-shirts and jeans with leather jackets and ballet flats. I love how laid-back yet glamorous she is.
Remember what I said about the French? Well, Clémence is no exception. In fact, she's the rule. I've adored everything about her since seeing her in In Bruges. She has a total effortless look with the tousled hair and no-frills dressing both in her downtime and when attending Paris Fashion Week. J'adore.
Overall, Olivia is a little too perfect and preppy for my liking. But this year, she's being a little more daring. Still, I'd like to mess up her hair and tell her not to brush it and smudge her eyeliner around. I love when she mixes prints and dresses more "downtown" than uptown.
The ultimate cool Brit It-girl. Daisy can look tough and badass in all-black and leather one minue, and positively sweet in a floral dress the next. She has her own unique style, but never looks the same. Personal favorite: the Miu Miu dress and sweater (second to last picture).
A few years ago, I would've said no way. But lately, Nicole is looking a lot more sophisticated and showing her personal style. I love the hints of boho, a style that I've never particularly liked, but when mixed with an Alexander McQueen scarf and Chanel bag, I'm into it. Motherhood has done great things for her. She just seems kinder and more comfortable in her own skin.
She's not exactly a household name yet, but her mother (Jane Birkin) certainly is. At least in my household. The French model/actress has consistently blown me away this year. Her laid-back look and striking features have made her the new darling on all of the style blogs. She loves her Chanel, too, which is always a plus.
She's cute running errands. She's cute going to fashion shows and parties. Rachel has officially ousted Mischa Barton as most fashionable O.C. alum. She pays attention to trends but never incorporates too many into one look, which is so important.
Sienna is another favorite best-dressed vet and for good reason. Years ago, her trademark was a modern boho look. Now days, she's being a little more adventurous and trying new looks. And you don't have to buy only from her Twenty8Twelve line to look like Sienna. Anything that looks like cool London street style will do the trick.
Honorable Mention: Whitney Port
Whenever I write something good in my papers at school, my professors circle it and say, "More like this!" Whitney, I'm going to circle this outfit and write "More like this!" really large in red pen.
See you next year!
