The Ultimate Guide To Celebrity Style

How many times have you skimmed through magazine pages and scoured the web in order to unlock the secrets to celeb-like fashion sense? I've always been infatuated with celebrities and their sense of style, whether that is innate or the product of a stylist's work. I used to follow various "get the celebrity look" websites like a maniac and I was always out to see what my favorite style stars would wear next. I still love to watch shows like Fashion Police and I'm the first to check out red carpet shots in order to spot the 'hits and misses'.
However, over the years, I learned, not how to copy their style, but how to draw inspiration from it only to incorporate it gracefully into my own personal sense of style. Just because I like a certain way of dressing on someone doesn't mean it'd look good on me. I also came to the realization that a lot of the things that celebrities wear are not practical because they're not your 9 to 5 kind of apparel. Celebs often wear things because they will be seen and photographed, because they wanna advertise something and because they need to uphold a certain status. Everyone knows it's highly unrealistic to walk around while shopping in 5 inch heels but celebrities do it all the time because it's their job to look uncommon and unattainable.
Younger stars though do tend to look a lot more approachable style-wise because usually that's the kind of profile they want to promote: the down-to-earth girl-next-door that teens can relate to. Their managers and stylists want them to wear things that the everyday gal can afford and wear without hesitation.
It's not rocket science really: just like normal people, celebrities too fall into style categories but that doesn't mean they're not allowed to deviate and explore different styles every now and then. But their flamboyant personalities, (sometimes) bright talent and of course, the teams of image experts that surround them make everything they put on seem more fab. Let's take a few notes.
(note that most of the pictures are candid streetstyle photos for the sake of making this post more relatable, because there wouldn't be much of a point in discussing about red carpet gowns that obviously most of us cannot wear)

THE VINTAGE CUTIE-PIES  



STYLE BREAKDOWN: KEY PIECES

(click on the arrows on the sides to see more)



These gals look like they've escaped from a pin-up poster but at the same time don't look that unworldly kind of perfect. They're fun and even quirky sometimes in their comfy ballerina flats and easy breezy floral dresses. They make sure they don't miss out on the fun, they love color, patterns and all things sweet: bows, polka-dots, cats, floral prints, pearls, curls. They will always stay loyal to their personal sense of style and hesitate to try the more fashion-forward trends. They will also hold on to red lipstick religiously.

THE GLAMS 


STYLE BREAKDOWN: KEY PIECES 



Those glam girls are the absolute Hollywood starlets. They love everything that shines, lush fabrics, extravaganza, large shades, heavy makeup, fake tanning. They really go for it. All of it. They don't hold back on the glitz and the glam. Their skin glows and their hair is long and shiny. They strut flawlessly in stilettos from day to night, often wearing big floppy hats, looking away from the paps and holding close their 2,000$ purse. They party hard and travel in their private jets while popping champagne bottles and Instagram all of it along the way.

THE ROCKERS 


STYLE BREAKDOWN: KEY PIECES



These are the "don't give a f-" kind of girls. They don't have a care in the world. They do black a lot - like, a lot. They know how to wear the "I didn't even try" look right. They are rebellious and don't care about always looking put together and pretty. In fact most of the time they don't. They barely wear any makeup, usually go for pants and basically aim for comfort. Boots are absolutely necessary for this kind of look. They love bands' t-shirts, ripped denim, Ray-bans, leather, sneakers, backpacks, rings, awkward poses and also some more leather (did I mention leather?).

THE EDGIES 


STYLE BREAKDOWN: KEY PIECES 



These ones are fierce women that are set to push the boundaries. They are repelled by anything common and ordinary and crave excitement and challenges. They don't wanna be accused of being boring because they don't feel like it. They're gifted, bright people who wanna celebrate their originality. Or, sometimes they just wanna grab attention. They love colors, volume, unrealistically high heels, crazy patterns, cartoon-like shapes and drama. They also change their mind like a girl changes clothes (pun intended, yeah).

THE CLASSIES 


STYLE BREAKDOWN: KEY PIECES 



That's my favorite category and if I ever was a celebrity that's the one I'd probably fall into (hehe). These ladies are the absolute fashionistas. They are chic and always put together even if they wear skinny jeans with a simple sweater. They got elegance running in their veins. They're royalty even in their simplest outfit. When you ask them who their favorite designer is, they won't reply you with a predictable answer like "Gucci", they're probably gonna tell you something like Altuzarra or Jason Wu or Proenza Schouler. They're cool and hip and urban and they love New York, culture, gourmet food and travelling to unlikely destinations. They always wanna be in the know and they wanna live a fabulous lifestyle that consists of high quality and exceptional taste in everything they do.

THE LAID-BACK COOLS 


STYLE BREAKDOWN: KEY PIECES 



That's my second to favorite category. Girls like them are the California dream. They sport everything with ease and always look for comfort and style at the same time. They're modern and they just wanna have fun. They love the sunshine, denim shorts, scarves, boots and Isabel Marant. They're those cool LA girls that drive their convertibles down Santa Monica boulevard and live their lives either on the beach or shopping in Hollywood. Two things are for sure: they know how to have  a good time and they look the part too.

    1. Kim K is a much-hated celebrity and I might agree with you on that. However I think that her sense of style has improved a lot. It's more neat right now than over-the-top glitzy glammy like it used to be. Thanks for stopping by! x
