PLEASE ADD YOUR IDEAS TOO!

here's mine: Rihanna :) I really like her style. Didn't pay much attention before, but I love candid pictures of her. Her style actually seems attainable, as opposed to some other stars out there.

I totally agree. I think some of the pieces she wares can be easily found and you can mix them in with your own stuff.

I think you can attain the look of almost any celebrity. If you like the particular style and understand clothes (cut, color, etc.) you will be able to find a less expensive version somewhere. Have a good tailor on hand when you need one and you're good to go. A good fit can make most clothing look more expensive.

I love it. I have three style inspirations(in no particular order):

1. Rihanna (like the OP!). I think she takes exciting, modern fashion risks. Also, we have similar body types.

2. Tyra Banks. I know some people hate Tyra and I find her to be very obnoxious sometimes. Lately, her style choices have been kinda crappy. However, I like how Tyra changes up her outfit choices so much. One day, its a fun, short party dress and some strappy heels. The next day it's a oversized, flowing top with a pencil skirt and knee high boots and the day after that, it's jeans with a vest. Also, she's usually dressed up, just like...

3. Kimora Lee Simmons. My goodness, has this woman ever heard of the word casual? There's something about her unapologetic love of dressing up that I love. I think she's a little less classic than Tyra in terms of fashion but she has such a great eye for clothing.

Boots:
I loooove the ankle boots in the first pic.
I got a pair of flat leather boots over a month ago that I still haven't worn, but I plan to wear them in January.

Im so with this!!

Rihanna- the OP is soooo right man! Rihanna has really burst out onto the fashionista scene big time. I love that her style is a mix of boyish edgy- with a girly feminine twist and a hint of rocker chic. So eccentric- definitely one of my style role models for '08.

Kimora Lee - I mean, I gotta agree with IvyHair, the woman oozes FaBuLoSiTy!!! She's fearless and unapologetic with her taste. Love it!

Lauren Conrad- I think LC is uber chic. Her sense of style is very understated, yet very classy and lady like. She's one demure chica ;)

Yup - I completely agree. I like some of the outfits she comes up with for work, they'd be great to wear on a casual Friday. Also, she has great taste in purses. I was excited when I heard about her fashion line - until I saw the prices.

Amara, I feel like we have similar tastes in terms of fashion icons.:yep: Now if only I could get my closet to reflect this.

Your dress looks great! Where did you purchase or did you have a tailor make it?

Hey girl,
