Fashion icons & how to master their looks!

Kate Moss, Rihanna & Gwen Stefani are style icons that our founder Jessica Armstrong idolizes. In the world of fashion, some individuals stand out as true leaders, leaving a lasting impact on the industry and inspiring countless trends and styles. Kate Moss, Rihanna and Gwen Stefani have all carved a unique niche for themselves, reflecting their individuality and impeccable sense of style.  Let's unlock the doors of their closets and discover the fashion secrets they've hidden within.

  1. Kate Moss – Poster Child of Heroin Chic

Kate Moss has made a profound impact on the fashion world with her unique combination of scrappiness, realness, glamour and approachability.  Moss rose to fame in the early 1990s during the "supermodel era," as part of the heroin chic fashion trend. Her collaborations with Calvin Klein brought her to fashion icon status. Off the runway she became a style icon in her own right, known for her waifish figure, and minimalist yet edgy approach to fashion. 

Her closet is a testament to the power of basics, where clean lines, neutral tones, and perfectly tailored pieces reign supreme. To master Moss's signature look, focus on investing in high-quality, versatile wardrobe staples that can easily be mixed and matched. Opt for timeless pieces such as a well-tailored blazer, a classic white button-down shirt, and a pair of perfectly fitted jeans. Pair these basics with edgier pieces such as your favorite vintage rocker tee or a fringe leather jacket.  Black is the leading color in her fabulous wardrobe.  By embracing the essence of Kate Moss's style, you can exude effortlessly chic.

       2. Rihanna – Fearless Fashion & Rule- Breaking Choices


Rihanna's daring and ever-evolving style is a true reflection of her bold personality and fearless attitude towards fashion. As a trendsetter and risk-taker, Rihanna's closet is undoubtedly a treasure trove of unique and eye-catching pieces. Emulating her style requires embracing the unexpected and stepping out of your comfort zone. Experiment with statement pieces, provocative streetwear, and vibrant colors to channel your inner Rihanna. Keep an eye out for interesting fabrications (latex, velvet, faux animal skin) and eye-catching silhouettes (cut-outs, body-con) when channeling your inner Rihanna.  Remember, fashion is about self-expression, and Rihanna's style is the epitome of breaking boundaries and embracing individuality.

       3. Gwen Stefani – Rock- Chic Glamour with a Girlie Twist

Gwen Stefani, the queen of cool, seamlessly blends her ska roots with femineity for the ultimate girlie rocker-chic aesthetic.  Her closet boasts a mix of bold prints, punk-inspired elements, and luxurious fabrics that perfectly represent her eclectic personality. To master Gwen Stefani's unique look, incorporate crop tops, cargos, plaid, bold colors, satin and shiny accessories into your wardrobe.  Also, adding a bold red lip is a must! Gwen's style is all about embracing your inner Rockstar and making a statement with every outfit.
