They may be celebrities themselves, but these 7 stars all look up to someone else when it comes to getting some fashion inspiration. While some idolize classic icons who have always been known to be effortlessly stylish, others admire their peers for trying something new or standing out. These 7 all have their own unique style too, so have clearly blended their influences to create something unique!
Twilight actress Ashley Greene loves how Jessica Szohr puts together outfits: “She has this way of putting things together that I would never think of. Every time I hang out with her, I’m like, ‘That’s such a cool outfit. I could never pull it off.’ I feel like I’m constantly learning and growing, and figuring out what works for me and what doesn’t work,I think it’s all trial and error. You have to try things and you can’t let someone else tell you what to wear. I’ve made fashion mistakes, but I’d like to think that I’ve learned from them.”
Vanessa’s style is mostly influenced by the 70′s, but she loves the Olsen twins too: “I’m extremely inspired by the ’60s and ’70s. I adore Bianca Jagger and Cher. I think Miley (Cyrus) has amazing style. Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen. Ashley Tisdale of course . Blake Lively. They all play with fashion and have fun with it!”
Taylor Swift is impressed by Rihanna: ”I like when people really experiment with color. I think Rihanna has always been amazing at the VMAs, everything that she has decided to wear as far as fashion on the carpet [has always looked good]. She takes chances. I think that with VMAs, it’s all about color and being risky.”
Mischa Barton loves rock’n'roll girls: “For me, I think my favorite fashion icons have always been women of the 70′s – real rock & roll chicks like Anita Pallenberg and Maryann Faithful…I like quirkiness in people. I think Zooey Deschanel has awesome style.”
Kim Kardashian says she has always looked up to Jennifer Lopez: “I’ve always idolizedJennifer Lopez. She just knows how to dress for her body type and I think that’s really important.”
Keira Knightley says she looks to the likes of Helena Bonham Carter: “I try, I really do, but I’m just no good at that stuff. I look at Helena Bonham Carter, who just wears whatever she wants and looks amazing. Or Cate Blanchett, who is so stunning and so completely stylish and perfect that she looks almost like a living statue.”
Katie Holmes looks up to a classic icon: “Katharine Hepburn. She was always herself and it never looked like the clothes were wearing her.”
