This year, 2014, was the year for all new style stars to look up to and take inspiration from. From red carpet elegance to everyday chic looks, these freshest faces have it covered. Do you remember the celebs who slayed it on the first red carpet event of the year? Or the celebrities who were snapped wearing perfection on the streets? Do you have a new favorite style star? Or has your style and fashion inspiration(s) remained the same? Check out this list of the freshest style stars of 2014 and tell us what you think.
- LUPITA NYONG’O – who could ever forget that Cinderella-esque dress she wore to the Academy Awards earlier this year? Or that stunning red dress that even came with a cape that she wore to the Golden Globes – the same look that first got us noticing her? From then on, Lupita has been featured in various fashion magazines and was even shot as cover for some.
- AMAL ALAMUDDIN – before she was Mrs. Clooney, Amal Alamuddin was a lawyer, an activist and a global epitome of class and style. Her looks are very feminine, sophisticated and elegant but not too prissy nor too snobby, making it one that any lady would want to go for.
- KENDALL JENNER – stepping out of her shell and leaving her comfort zone being known as one of the Kardashian brood, Kendall made a name for herself in the fashion world. This year, she’s landed tons of modeling gigs, walked a number of runway shows and was even signed as the new face of Estee Lauder cosmetics. Kendall’s style is young, hip and chic. She’s a great style icon for teens and young adults to look up to.
- IGGY AZALEA – she’s indeed fancy. Australian singer-slash-model Iggy Azalea has been showing us a lot lately and it’s not just her booty. Iggy is also known for being one of the most stylish celebs in Hollywood this year. Even her hit single “Fancy” is a fashion inspo gold mine.
- LILY COLLINS – she’s always been a looker but this year she proved that she can be so much more than that. Lily has given us bolder and more experimental looks lately and we loved every single one! If this is an omen of what she has in store for us in 2015, we’re thrilled!
- TAYLOR SWIFT – and what’s a list of the freshest style stars without Taylor Swift? Taylor just gets cooler, bolder and better by the day, especially her style. Just this summer, the paparazzi had a field day waiting for her right outside her New York apartment as she turned the sidewalk into her own runway.
