Top 10 Celebrity Fashion Icons*

Looking good is important to women of all ages and a recent survey has revealed which celebrities inspire and motivate women across the UK to look and feel great. The survey, conducted by Bonmarche polled women aged 45+ to discover who they consider to be a style icon. When asked who their fashion muses were, women were quick to pick out their top ten celebrities. In order, the top 10 are:

  1. Helen Mirren (19.2%)
  2. Jennifer Anniston (16.3%)
  3. Meryl Streep (14.5%)
  4. Joanna Lumley (13.5%)
  5. Nicole Kidman (10.3%)
  6. Elle MacPherson (10%)
  7. Julie Walters (8.1%)
  8. Jane McDonald (5.9%)
  9. Salma Hayek (5.4%)
  10. Ruth Langsford (4.8%)

Women aged 45-54 take the most style inspiration from Jennifer Anniston 16.3% – known for her golden tan, healthy eating regime and silky hair. Helen Mirren’s sophisticated style makes her another favorite, 19.2% saying she is their fashion muse.

It’s evident from the research that as women mature and reach the age group of 55-64 their style icons change.  Almost 20% of women in this age bracket said Helen Mirren was their muse, Meryl Streep makes an appearance in third place with 14.5% and Joanna Lumley of Absolutely Fabulous takes fourth place with 13.5% of survey respondents saying she inspires their fashion choices.

For me, as a 24 year old fashion blogger, I would have to say that I had a few fashion gurus of my own. Here are my top 5 (number 5 is definitely a every day thing):

  1. Victoria Beckham
  2. Alexa Chung
  3. Holly Willoughby
  4. Megan McKenna
  5. The general public who walk around London (ha!)
