Solange Knowles

Solange Knowles is an actress, mother, song writer, musician and most notably Beyonce’s younger sister. Over the years Solange has morphed into a sought after fashionista. Solange notes ” her mother Tina Knowles, Diana Ross, The Fela Kuti Queens, Björk, ’70s-era Chaka Khan, Chloë Sevigny and ’90s Erykah Badu” as her style hero’s. Solange secret style weapon is, “Shoes! I’m all about the shoes! I order a ton of them online and play with my entire wardrobe until I find the right shoe.” Solange says if her style were summed up in one song it would be Q-Tip’s ‘Vivrant Thang.’ SOURCE

Rachel Bilson

Rachel had this to say about her style, “I’m constantly trying new things and experimenting,” says Bilson. So I never really settle on one style. By the time I figure out how to define my look, I’m usually ready to move on to something else. I’m a huge fan of Helmut Lang for everyday items that are comfortable, easy to throw on, and always look good. If I wear jewelry, it’s almost always one statement piece that feels like it could have been a family heirloom.”  SOURCE

Gwyneth Paltrow

Gwyneth Paltrow style has not changed a lot over the years because she knows that simplicity is chic. Gwyneth has the minimalist trend down to a tee. Gwyneth also knows that sometimes wearing pieces in a popping color can make any person take notice. It seems  that Calvin Klein is her favorite designer as of now probably due to his less- is- more design ethic.

Genevieve describes her style as, “It’s classic taken to the edge. I just like to have fun and think I look great when I walk out the house. I anticipate every designer’s new collection each season. I looovvve dressing up! I don’t have ‘bad days’ with frocks. I keep my already tiny closets half empty, filled, and spread out with only great pieces. I don’t have anything that practical and/or any fillers lurking around but I take my American Apparel very seriously!  I may wear the same outfit four days in a row but at least I’m confident it’s a really chic outfit.” Genevieve  on her fashion icons, My fashion icon is a tie between Charlotte Rampling and Donyale Luna. With Charlotte, it wasn’t so much about her style—she is just so beautiful, she personifies “cool.” It’s her spirit I find fashionably iconic. With Donyale, she embodied fashion and turned it into life. I saw a picture of her in black lace up thigh-high boots and black vinyl pants and I made my mom take me shopping on Decateur Street [New Orleans] to get that look the day I saw her. I fell in love… I was 14. Genevieve ‘s favorite designers include, “Marc Jacobs and Zac Posen (they get their own row). I love Rodarte, YSL, Christopher Kane, Balenciaga, Etro, Givenchy, Elise Overland, Alexander Wang, threeASFOUR, Thakoon, Kai Kühne, Jonathan Saunders, Bernhard Wilhelm, J. Mendel, Nina Ricci… Everybody!” SOURCE
