Celebrities are known for their covetable fashion and beauty choices, and they’re constantly inspiring us mere mortals to follow their lead.
But the stars who always catch my eye are the ones who manage to create a signature image of their very own.
If you’re looking for some creative¬†styling inspiration, these Hollywood trendsetters are your go-to muses.
9 Hollywood Trendsetters to Inspire Your Inner Rebel
These leading ladies prove that originality is one of the best accessories a girl can have:
1. Alexa Chung
Perhaps today’s most influential “It Girl,” Alexa Chung’s signature style definitely stands out from the crowd.
Her wardrobe is a¬†mix of high-fashion pieces and quirky vintage finds, but the way she pairs these items is what makes her style so unique.
From strappy Mary Janes to time-worn concert T-shirts, Alexa proves that it’s best to march to the beat of your own drum.
2. Kristen Stewart
She may have taken Hollywood by storm with her role as Bella Swan in the Twilight franchise, but Kristen Stewart is far removed from Tinseltown’s glitz and glamour.
Recently, the actress debuted a platinum-blonde buzzcut (certainly not typical of most leading ladies), and she routinely favors Converse sneakers over high heels.
3. Michelle Williams
This petite powerhouse with the best¬†pixie cut¬†ever loves to play around with one-of-a-kind dresses, and her style always pops on the red carpet.
From her latest¬†black-and-white dress with a plunge neckline to her iconic canary-yellow Vera Wang gown, this is one trendsetter who can do no wrong.
4. Kiernan Shipka
Little Sally Draper from Mad Men has grown into a style star in the making. Just 17 years old, Shipka has stolen the spotlight in recent years thanks to her daring ensembles and playful nods¬†to vintage styling.
One minute, she’s rocking a colorful cut-out dress with patent-leather pumps, and the next minute, she’s wearing a crop top with high-waisted shorts and platform sneakers.
In other words, she’s not afraid of taking risks — and that makes her so fun to watch.
A Hollywood indie princess, Browning is probably best known for starring opposite Kit Harington in the film¬†Pompeii — and for rocking her own unique look.
(Namely mixed prints, oversized blazers, platform heels, and tights.)
6. Diane Kruger
She doesn’t hesitate to wear embellished pants on the red carpet or top¬†a ballgown with a slouchy blazer.
7. Chloe Sevigny
Chloe Sevigny recommends treating red lipstick like Chapstick and avoiding pants unless they have a high waist and a flare.
She also¬†suggests that you ignore her advice altogether and wear exactly what you want. This is why Chloe Sevigny is the original Hollywood trendsetter and fashion rebel.
8. Imogen Poots
If you love the idea of ’90s grunge but aren’t sure how to translate it into the modern era, take some styling notes from Imogen Poots.
This blonde beauty is all about beanies, utility jackets, and black on black — and she makes it work each and every time.
9. Elle Fanning
While most leading ladies who lack 20/20 vision opt for contact lenses over glasses, this fresh-faced newbie¬†has embraced eyewear instead — so much so that it’s become a signature part of her look.
Nerdy-chic frames are a smart way to stand out from the crowd (and see better, no less).
