Style Icons of 2012: Who is your favourite?

Thursday, December 27, 2012

2012 has been a big year for rising stars, especially within the fashion industry. We now don't just look to the latest pop star, girl band or hottest actress we have a look at the ones which aren't getting enough attention and these are the stars which are breaking the rules of fashion and really developing their own sense of style. I thought I'd do a collage to my favourite style icons of 2012 and maybe you'll be inspired by them too! (there's a few well known faces but also some new ones!)
1 - Rita Ora - is a British Singer-Songwriter who's released her debut album this year. You may recognise her from DJ Fresh's song 'Hot Right Now' or her massive hit which was 'How we do (Party)'. You may have also heard of her from her relationship with Rob Kardashian.

2 - Mary Kate Olsen - is an American actress, fashion designer and business woman. She also co-founded luxury fashion brand The Row with her twin sister Ashley Olsen. Mary Kate Olsen has been in our fashion magazines for years but her style is so inspiring!

3 - Bip Ling - Is an English fashion blogger. She writes Bip and has appeared on the front cover of Company Magazine!

4 - Ashley Madekwe - Is an English born actress and fashion blogger. She's appeared in the Secret Diary of a call girl and is known for her most famous role which is Ashley Davenport in ABC Drama Series 'Revenge'. She's also a fellow fashion blogger and her blog is called Ring My Bell.

5 - Cara Delevigne - Is a British Fashion Model. She's currently the face of Burberry's beauty campaign and has modelled for Chanel and H&M. Most recently she won 'Model of the year 2012' at the British Fashion Awards.

6 - Fearne Cotton - Is an English television and radio presenter. She's best known for presenting BBC 1's red nose appeal and being on the panel for ITV2 show Celebrity Juice. Her style caught the fashion industry's attention many years ago and she also launched with best friend Holly Willoughby. Which they both sell their own fashion lines on.

These women have all influenced/inspired me in some way this year and I'm always fascinated by what they are wearing. My style icon would have to be Ashley Madekwe as her style is so similar to my own and when I'm stuck with what to wear I love going on her fashion blog for that little bit of inspiration! I'm also addicted to watching Revenge and it's one of my favourite tv shows! (After Gossip Girl, FRIENDS & Big Bang Theory!)
Which of these women would be your style icon? Who's style are you inspired by?
