In today’s world, we are surrounded by celebrities and influential people. Not only do these people influence cinema, art, and culture, but they also impact the latest fashion styles. Often these trends end up changing the way we wear clothes altogether. Whether it’s a casual outfit for coffee in the city, a red carpet gown by a luxury fashion designer, or even inspire a custom-made ring, we always pay attention.
In this article, we’ll look at 5 fashion icons known for their high-end looks, ranging from fashion royalty to legitimate royalty!
A modern god. Billy Porter was relatively unknown outside of the Broadway community until his red carpet debut at the 2019 Oscars when he wore a stunning tuxedo gown by Christian Siriano. This rocked the fashion world! Billy allowed the world to open its eyes to something new and tore down gender walls. We love Billy’s style and bravery for being exactly who he is at all times. We expect to see a lot more of this icon in the coming years.
Kate Middleton is an actual princess. How cool is that? As Duchess of Cambridge and future queen consort of England, her style is always impeccable. From trendy overcoats to statement piece jewelry, she has something for every occasion. Kate seems to be a fan of Alexander McQueen’s designs, as she’s seen sporting them fairly often.
But what we love about Kate is that she constantly looks elegant and trendy, while also looking like a down-to-earth mom! We also love the way Kate dresses her young princes and princess in high-end fashion, too! The next generation of icons are on their way.
Kendall and Kylie Jenner
How could Kendall and Kylie NOT make this list, right? The two sisters are constantly making headlines for their latest styles. They have made an empire of their social media successes, with cosmetic deals and many high-end sponsorships. Their looks are legendary, from their 2019 Donatella Versace Met Gala dresses to their own clothing line.
They feature all of their looks on their Instagram and Twitter accounts, which makes it super easy for all of us to follow. It seems like the Jenner/Kardashian crew will continue to rule the fashion world for the foreseeable future!
All hail the original fashion queen herself: Audrey Hepburn. Ms. Hepburn did so much for the world we know today. She was a humanitarian and did amazing charitable works. And not only was she a phenomenal human being, but she was also a phenomenal fashion icon. A lot of fashion trends that we now know and love were first sported by none other than Audrey herself.
She championed the little black dress in Breakfast at Tiffany’s, and waist belts are a thing because of her. Audrey Hepburn’s close relationship with designer Hubert de Givenchy helped her skyrocket to fashion royalty.
Present-day fashion icon Harry Styles is perhaps not what the world expected. This ex-boy band heartthrob has recently made headlines for his daring and non-conforming style. From early Dolce and Gabanna looks to more recent lavender feather boas, Harry has always rocked his fashion.
It’s no wonder his last name is Styles! In recent years, it seems like Harry has been favoring certain Gucci clothes, like the custom outfit he wore on the cover of his second album, Fine Line. We are huge Harry fans!
Iconic Looks from the Ages
We have so much to learn from these fashion icons. Celebs like Audrey Hepburn helped shape the past and trailblazers like Billy Porter are making way for the future. One of the best parts about style is that it’s always changing and it’s never too late to become a glamorous fashion diva!
We will look back at some of these high-end looks and reminisce about this time in history. Fashion will evolve as humanity does, which means there will always be things to look forward to. Keep a watch out on social media and the runway for the newest trends soon to be taking over!
