Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen
Did you think we could ever forget about the most successful twins in Hollywood? Not only do the Olsen twins slay the red carpet, they slay at life. In 2016, their Fashion Empire was worth an estimated $1 Billion. Their prized collection, The Row, was founded in 2006. The line is described as "a sense of relaxed and timeless elegance." I'm a huge fan of the line, per contra I know they receive a ton of slack for their outrageous prices. But hey, the Olsen twins have a strict standard. Since then, the Olsens have won CFDA Womenswear Designer of the Year — the highest award available to American fashion designers — twice, in 2012 and 2015. They are the definition of bad ass. #goals
Serena van der Woodsen
Gossip Girl is famous for their intense exposure of fashion. Serena van der Woodsen has to go down in history for having one of television's most desirable wardrobes. Serena is an inspiration because she's always switching it up. Sometimes she's playful, sometimes she's business, and then sometimes she's absolutely sexy and I love it. My senior year prom dress was inspired by Serena's gown in Season Four. Brooke even thought the dress was dope and bought it too.
Leandra Medine is why I repurpose all my sweaters, blouses, or casual tees. She has such a unique, one of a kind style. She is the author and founder of the ever-popular fashion blog Man Repeller. In 2012, Leandra was featured in Forbe's "Top 30 Under 30" as one of the year's "most influential trendsetters." She is someone I aspire to be one day - her own boss solely by creating. Leandra once said, "It's enlightening, albeit intimidating, to think how much control we have over our own lives." Thus, let's not be afraid to reach for the stars. Believe in yourself entirely.
Karrueche Tran's style is flawless. She can dress like a boss with such an alluring touch. When I analyze her style, all I can think is she gets it... she knows what she's doing. Karrueche's style is relatable because she will buy clothes from Topshop, American Apparel, Nordstrom, or H&M. AKA - places where I can afford, honestly. She began her career in the fashion industry as a personal shopper when working at Nordstrom.
Selena is everything. Not only is she beautiful on the inside, her style is remarkable on the outside. Selena always dresses so elegantly, especially on the red carpet. She carries herself with such poise and grace. I think she is a prime example of how to dress sexy yet not too revealing. She is a role model for myself as she is for millions of other girls. Her music is extremely therapeutic by singing about pain caused by ex boyfriend Bieber. Despite the heartbreak, Selena is glowing more than ever and I applaud her anytime she comes up in conversation.
