In newsstands this month, you’ll see many celebrities from Lauren Conrad and Shakira to Beyonce splashed across the covers of the magazines. If you look in each, you’ll notice it’s not just about talent anymore. It’s about what they wear and the effect they’ve had on their fans. While many are constantly trying to better their acting or singing careers, or establish a statement of themselves as individuals, they have also made careers in the fashion world by collaborating with brands, starting clothing lines, and setting trends. Sure, many celebrities have makeup and wardrobe stylists, but, at the end of the day, it’s their choice of what they want to wear.
What makes a celebrity a trendsetter is when they’re not afraid to take a risk. They’re always up for trying on something new and original. They own what they wear and make it look flawless.
Being a fashionista myself, I try to stay on top of trends, taking note of the style in clothes people wear and, in the past few months, I’ve noticed only a few celebrities making an impact in the fashion world. The celebrities mentioned here have sets trends worthy of our recognition.
