The fashionistas live and die by what they wear, constantly searching for the freshest style, while the average person merely dresses to look good. Once in the public eye they are photographed wherever they are as the outfits they wear make them stand out from the crowd as the true style icons they are. Their image might not always work but when the next day begins they will be setting the trend all over again knowing that the rest of the world will soon follow suit.
Coco Chanel is one of the first names to spring to mind when thinking of world famous fashion icons. As testament to the influence she had in the industry Time Magazine named her in their Most Important People of the Century List - the only person from the world of fashion to make it! Styles which she perfected over half a century ago are still being copied today which shows how truly ahead of her time she was.
Being a fashion icon then a designer has definitely worked for Kate Moss. She has a habit of being seen in all the right places in all the right garments which are perfectly accessible for the average person to afford. Unsurprisingly there were thousands queueing when Kate's Topshop range was first unveiled, and she has now designed for them over the past three years.
Having already perfected the boho-chic look of skinny jeans, flowing tops and long hair, Sienna Miller has now switched styles leaving all those emulating her image somewhere in the distance. As a true fashionista her look is scrutinised across the globe (along with her private life!) and so the mod style she is now going for is also being used by some of the world's top designers.
As one of the most watched couples in the world the Beckhams exude style and as testament to this they are both endorsed by some of the most prestigious names in fashion. Off the football pitch David is famed for being one of the ultimate metrosexuals who is unashamed of grooming but can also be seen as a man's man. Victoria is always seen in clothes at the height of fashion and she never tries to take away from any of the amazing dresses she wears by adding accessories to her outfits.
