11 Most Influential Celebrity Trendsetters

celebrity style 1

While it might seem like most celebs move in and out of the spotlight as the seasons change, some have serious staying power. Consider Victoria Beckham, the lady who branded herself as Posh way back in the 1990s. Though the Spice Girls moment faded, Beckham has practically earned herself a permanent spot on the list of most influential celebrity trendsetters. Even today, in her 40s, she’s continuing to make a statement on Instagram and with her high-end clothing line. And then there’s J Lo — TV dancer in her early 20s turned fashion icon.

Our list of top influential celeb trendsetters includes the stylish ladies like Jennifer Lopez and Posh Beckham who have staying power, plus exciting up-and-comers like Lizzo and boundary-breaking queen Billie Eilish. Enjoy!

Singer, dancer, actress, model, and fashion designer Zendaya has been earning accolades since her teens. In recent years, she’s focused more on her fashion talents, modelling and even launching her own clothing line Daya by Zendaya in 2016. Unfortunately, Daya by Zendaya went down in 2018 — Zendaya fired her partner company at the time amidst complaints that orders weren’t being fulfilled. You can still get her designs on Poshmark and you can check out Zendaya’s acting chops on the HBO series Euphoria.

Lizzo, aka Melissa Jefferson, is a singer, songwriter, rapper, actress and 2019 Entertainer of the Year according to Time magazine. Her Instagram feed is a mix of glammy shots, political statements, make-up free selfies, and bold close-ups of her famously round tushy — exactly the content you need to tap into your most empowered self.

Any list of influencers in the 2020s has to include Kylie Jenner — model, founder of Kylie Cosmetics, and A-lister. The curvaceous brunette has 191 million Instagram followers, thanks to an elegant feed that masters the “good life” vibe. Think exotic places and skimpy outfits, with a few make-up and kid pics thrown in for good measure.

Billie Eilish

What’s not to love about Billie Eilish? She’s quirky and creative — branding a whole new style of beauty that, frankly, makes the socials a lot more interesting.

This afternoon, The Duke and Duchess of Sussex attended the annual Commonwealth Service at Westminster Abbey on Commonwealth Day, alongside Her Majesty The Queen and Members of The Royal Family. The Commonwealth is a global network of 54 countries, working in collaboration towards shared economic, environmental, social and democratic goals, and the Service today seeks to highlight the vast community which spans every geographical region, religion and culture, embracing diversity amongst its population of 2.4 billion people, of which 60 percent are under 30 years old. As President and Vice-President of the @Queens_Commonwealth_Trust, The Duke and Duchess of Sussex have been passionate advocates of the Commonwealth having spent many years working closely with the next generation of Commonwealth leaders. The theme of the Commonwealth for 2020 is ‘Delivering A Common Future: Connecting, Innovating, Transforming', placing emphasis on youth, the environment, trade, governance, and ICT (Information and Communications Technology) and innovation. From working to protect the earth's natural resources and preserving the planet for generations to come, to championing fair trade and empowering the youth of today to transform the communities of tomorrow, the Service celebrates the Commonwealth's continued commitment to delivering a peaceful, prosperous and more sustainable future for all.

Meghan Markle’s status with the royal family may have changed, but she’s still our queen of style. Always elegant and classy, Markle is a true fashion icon who proves that you don’t have to be shocking to be a trendsetter. Unfortunately for us, Markle doesn’t have an official Instagram account dedicated to her very best outfits.

Katy Perry

Katy Perry’s musical accomplishments may have slowed down in recent years, but we’ve seen the full range of her fashion sense during her stint as American Idol judge. From her ever-changing hair color to blingy, dizzying outfits that rival Gwen Stefani’s futuristic style sense, Perry naturally encourages all of us to step outside our comfort zones.

Kim Kardashian

What do we need to say about KKW? She’s perfected the art of being a trendsetter — and clearly passed that expertise onto her half-sister Kylie Jenner. West’s IG feed is a touch more down-to-earth than Jenner’s, but expect a huge dose of glam and lots of kissy-face selfies.

Selena Gomez

Child TV actress from Barney & Friends turned Disney star turned pop singer — of course Selena Gomez would also evolve into a fashion icon. Her many red carpet appearances have shown us her full fashion range. And like any good fashion trendsetter, she has pushed the envelope may be a little too far at times. But we forgive her, since her best outfit choices are so, so beautiful.

Vanessa Hudgens

So happy to be back at work. All safely 😉

A post shared by 🔮Vanessa Hudgens🔮 (@vanessahudgens) on

Like Gomez, Vanessa Hudgens found her stardom at a young age and grew into her role as fashion icon. Her street style captivates. You might see Hudgens walking around town in glammy snake print leggings, an oversized neon t-shirt, or a down-to-earth summer dress. Follow her on Instagram for a mix of beach photos and cute natural looks.

Victoria Beckham

Kisses @davidbeckham, I love u 💕

A post shared by Victoria Beckham (@victoriabeckham) on

Victoria Beckham needs no introduction. Singer, fashion designer, wife, and mom — she looks amazing in even her most casual outfits and also defies those outdated rules about what women over 40 should or shouldn’t wear.

Jennifer Lopez

Jennifer Lopez secured her spot as fashion icon when she wore that green, open-front Versace dress to the Grammys in 2000. Lopez, like Beckham, reminds that female sex-appeal doesn’t dry up and disappear at a certain age. And as glamorous as JLO can be, she’s also not afraid to show her natural, casual side.
