Style Icons: who inspires you?

We’ve all looked towards celebrities for inspiration. Whether it’s to learn the secrets of their perfect bodies, flawless skin or superior hairstyles, we’ve all turned our attention to fashion icons to learn how to inject a little glamour into our live.

But who is the biggest fashion icon of past and present?

 Kate Moss

An icon that’s still going strong, Kate Moss has given the world many an innovative style.

Lady Gaga

A modern name with overtly modern tastes, Lady Gaga has become known for outlandish styles that stun, shock and amaze.

The secret to Gaga’s style is that nothing is off limits and every component of her outfits get a makeover. From shoes to jewellery and hats to masks, Gaga reminds us that fashion is about pushing boundaries, not operating within them.

Michelle Obama and Kate Middleton

Famous models, actresses and singers aren’t the only fashion icons that influence our decisions. You’ll also find First Lady’s and Princesses handing down a few pearls of wisdom.

Michelle Obama is an obvious choice. She’s been named one of the top ten fashion icons by and it’s easy to see why.

One of Michelle’s best fashion features is her versatility. From casual to formal, she takes it all in her stride.

British star Kate Middleton is no different.


Image courtesy of

Her classic British charm takes influence from numerous styles and always manages to look demure, sophisticated and completely beautiful.

These are some of the most popular and most talked about style icons for many different reasons with very different styles. My personal favourite would definitely be Kate Moss. Her ease for style always appeals.

Follow in the footsteps of these style icons by getting your hands on some of the top trends from their classic looks. You can manage your spending by using an American Express credit card if necessary.
