Caroline Mueller – The Bohemian One
When you hear the words “bohemian celebrity” who do you think of? I immediately think of the face of all things edgy, artsy, and effortlessly cool: Nicole Richie. As a famed wild child, Richie never goes unnoticed; however, she is now notorious for outstanding looks on and off the red carpet. Richie’s style can be defined by loose-fitting garments, each with a unique twist and feel. Layering maxi dresses with leather jackets, using braids and headbands to create unexpected hairstyles, and using subtle touches of gold and glitter, all help to define her everyday looks. Her trademark style of large sunglasses helped start a worldwide trend that has been adopted by many, including Mary Kate and Ashley and Kim Kardashian. In the past few years, she has metamorphosed from a street style innovator to a fashion entrepreneur, with her lines House of Harlow and Winter Kate that have developed a strong following.
Vintage Floral prints and patterns adorn her dresses and help to make her stand out on the street or the red carpet; on both of which she maintains a breezy calm, from her long beachy summertime waves to her winged black eyeliner down to her rustic leather bags and boots. Personally, I take to her use of scarves, her combination of jeans and offbeat blouses and vests, and her affinity to maxi dresses is much like my own. Nicole Richie has set the standard high for bohemian style and gives hippie chic girls everywhere inspiration to combine and create new things, whether it be patterns and prints together or glitz with simple white linen, her fearless, “wild child” appearance and outlook is something that is to be adopted and made your own.
McCall – The Trendsetter
Sarah Jessica Parker is not just a fashion icon, she is recognized as a trendsetter with great influence on the fashion industry. As Carrie Bradshaw in the popular TV show, Sex and the City, she set trends in fashion around the world. SJP displayed many quirky fashions that perfectly complimented her Manolos in almost every episode, and in real life it is clear that her style is the same. While her outfits are sometimes a little outrageous for your average street style, each item is a masterpiece.
Proving she can wear all fabulous or strange fashion items, SJP proves she is a true trendsetter. Many might think of the Gucci hobo bag she is carrying above as casual style at first glance, yet Sarah Jessica Parker wears half formal clothes to accentuate the accessory. Her unique and stylish character makes the relaxed feeling of the hobo bag both more structured and fancy. Likewise, not just anyone can pull of the yellow Proenza Schouler vest she effortlessly wears. Aspiring trendsetters can’t go wrong when imitating and appreciating a SJP ensemble!
Shanté Fenique – The Glamorista
Queen B is undoubtedly one of the most glamorous women in this generation. No one dominates the stage, big screen or red carpet like Beyoncé. No matter where she is, it’s guaranteed she will dominate with undeniable style and ease. Throughout the years her style has progressed but she has always remained a glamorous classy diva. Her House of Deréon line with her mother Tina Knowles is making waves in the fashion world as Beyoncé continues to grow as an entertainer, actress and style icon. Recently pregnant, she hasn’t let that hold her back or stop her from being sexy and empowered. I have always loved shiny things therefore I’ve always loved Beyoncé. She walks out perfectly coiffed and always looks utterly flawless. Even in her everyday style, Beyoncé displays a sense of class, sparkle and divatude.

Brooke – The All-American
It’s official, the “All-American One” has jumped on the British invasion bandwagon! Although Pippa Middleton resides outside these American borders, her street fashion is next to none in terms of class, simplicity, and style. Pippa puts a twist on the classic skinny jean by wearing white wash denim fit to perfection. Her blue blazer by Zara compliments the minimalist color scheme of a nude shirt and pumps, and white skinny jeans. I love everything about this outfit! Pippa is a great example of knowing great proportions, flattering cuts, and appropriate accessories. The broad shoulders of the blue blazer are proportional to the slightly flared skinny jeans and the line of the leg continues with the light-colored shoe.
Yet another great example of a classic fashion esthetic! This colorful printed sheath dress paired with a camel jacket is the perfect way to update your look while keeping it simple. Pippa has made a statement bag a must have for this season’s fashion! The camel color of the bag and jacket suggests camel is the next hot color for fall. Pippa is the ideal fashion icon for classic looks around the world! We all continue to watch as the British teach Americans a little bit about style.
