Today, I want to talk about fashion inspiration. Sometimes, it can be difficult to come up with new outfits, and I often get asked about how you’re supposed to keep up with it all. In an industry where everything changes every other day, how do you stay inspired without buying a whole new wardrobe weekly?

There’s a lot of creativity involved in fashion – even if it’s just in choosing how you wear the few basic pieces you have. Just like artists and writers look for inspiration to keep their creativity flowing, fashionistas need inspiration, too!

There are many ways to find fashion inspiration (which I’ll discuss more later), but one easy way is to have a celebrity fashion muse.

What is a celebrity fashion muse?

A celebrity fashion muse is someone you look to for fashion inspiration. You can check out what this celebrity wears, take notes on how they wear different items, what colors look good on them, etc. It’s a way to keep your style current while you learn about fashion.

Taking fashion notes from a celebrity is also a good way to get a feel for how your body type may look in different types of clothing. Want to try a pair of high-waisted pants but aren’t sure if they’ll look right?

Let your celebrity fashion muse do it first, and observe their results before you buy a pair yourself.

Why celebrities?

These days, they have really amazing stylists and are basically walking fashion editorials going to Starbucks. And because these famous people pay a professional to dress them and have access to all the latest designer clothes, observing them is a great way to find out about the newest trends & pieces before they hit stores.

How To Pick A Celebrity Fashion Muse

So, how do you go about choosing a celeb to be your fashion inspiration of the moment? Here are some points to consider when you go about finding the perfect one.

  • Look for someone who looks like you. In terms of hair color, height, etc., look for someone that you think you resemble. Don’t expect to find a perfect clone of yourself in Hollywood, but find someone that you identify with.
  • Find a celeb with a similar body type. This isn’t a must, but it really helps when it comes to figuring out what types of clothes will look best on you.
  • Look for a similar sense of personal style. Another bonus. If you can find a celeb who’s personal style resembles your own, that’s another great way to get inspiration and exposure to new pieces that you may like.

Here are some examples of celebrity fashion muses to get you started. These are just some examples of celebrities with large followings – if you hate them all, feel free to find your own!

1. Hailey Bieber

Channel Hailey’s effortlessly cool street style with oversized blazers, cropped tees, and high-waisted mom jeans. Don’t forget chunky sneakers and sleek shades for a finishing touch.

2. Zendaya

Embrace Zendaya‘s bold and fearless fashion sense by rocking vibrant colors, daring patterns, and unexpected silhouettes. Think power suits with feminine details, dramatic capes, and statement jewelry.

3. Rihanna

Rihanna’s style is all about owning your sexiness and confidence. Think bodycon dresses with thigh-high slits, oversized denim jackets over lingerie, and sky-high heels. Neon accents and statement accessories are your friends.

4. Sofia Richie

If you love a feminine vibe with an “old money” feel, Sofia’s your girl. Neutral-toned maxi dresses, delicate lace tops, and quiet luxury basics are staples in her wardrobe.

5. Selena Gomez

Selena’s style is all about effortless chic with a playful twist. Think comfy rompers, cute sundresses, and vintage-inspired denim paired with sneakers or ankle boots. Don’t forget a pop of color!

6. Taylor Swift

Taylor’s style has evolved from country charm to sophisticated glam. Channel her current vibe with preppy staples like pleated skirts and cable-knit sweaters, or embrace her love for feminine dresses and bold red lips.

7. Bella Hadid 

Bella’s street style is all about edgy sophistication. She loves crop tops, low-rise jeans, leather jackets, and graphic tees paired with sneakers and Y2K bags. Don’t shy away from bold makeup and statement sunglasses.

8. Tiffany Young

Tiffany’s style is a playful mix of K-pop trends and Western chic, with bold colors, quirky prints, and unexpected pairings like feminine dresses with statement sneakers. Rock a high ponytail and statement earrings for extra points.

9. Ashley Graham

Ashley‘s all about celebrating curves and owning your confidence. Think bodycon dresses with bold prints, high-waisted jeans with crop tops, and statement jackets that accentuate your figure.

10. Billie Eilish

Billie’s style is as unique as her music. To get her vibe, go for oversized streetwear, baggy silhouettes, and bold graphic prints. Layer on necklaces, rings, and bucket hats for an extra dose of her signature edge.

Remember, these are just starting points! Don’t be afraid to mix and match elements from different muses or add your own personal touch. The most important thing is to feel confident and express your unique style. So channel your inner fashion icon and rock those outfits with sass!

One Reminder:

A quick note of caution on this: When you look for inspiration in celebrity outfits, always add your own individual twist to their look. It’s no fun to copy someone’s outfit piece for piece: it’s like fashion plagiarism!

Let celebrity outfits and styles inspire you, but don’t rip the picture out of the magazine and buy every single piece. Have the confidence to wear your own version of their look and change it to suit you.

  1. I love Jeniffer Aniston and Blake Lively’s style..
    They always look amazingly beautiful yet simple and comfortable.
    They’re a great inspiration!
    And I also agree on Kate Moss and Lindsay Lohan 🙂
    Great article!

  2. Wow, I love this site! Now I can´t go to bed before I´ve read all of articles here! <3
    And this one was amazing.

  3. Does anyone have a suggestion for me?!
    I’m tall (5ft9), athletic figure and long blonde hair.
    I love Vanessa Hudgens style, kind of boho and casual in the day but glam for going out, but she’s completely opposite from me in looks!
    So if anyone has a suggestion for me that would be fab!
    Love the blog, keep it up!
    Would be good if you could do a style page on V.Hudgens.
    (Have you guessed already that I love her style!?!?!!!!!)
    =) xoxo

    i really love hilary duff make-up
    vanessa hudgens also i love how she dress casual and i like that
    i love the crazy look that Mischa Barton got ,
    specially when she dressed for a night out…..

    thanxx 4 this site again =D

  5. Nicole Richie and Rachel Bilson are definitely two of my favorites. I also really love Mischa Barton’s style. I can’t stand Sienna Miller’s though, and I don’t understand what all the fuss is about with her outfits. To me she looks like she went through her mom’s closet and put together the most random outfit of ugly pieces she could find. She is never put-together at all!

  6. Great article, yet again. I’m liking this website, even though I’m not in college quite yet. 😉

    Rachel Bilson is def. one of my fashion muses. 😛

    To Stacy, the asian gal! I feel your pain, sorta. Hard to find asians in Hollywood. Specifically, I’m Filipino, and one of my other fashion muses in Vanessa Anne Hudgens. Even if you don’t like high school musical (I do, though :D), she really does wear some of the cutest things. And she’s part Filipina! The only other part Filipina I can think of is Cassie, but I don’t really know her style.

    I’m kinda petite, but not exactly thiiiin. I’m a good size, though, because I play tennis and am moderately athletic. So V Hudgens and Rach Bilson are good muses for me 🙂
