Status Symbols

Nowadays celebrities are an important part of fashion trends. They get photographed by paparazzis a lot, so people have a chance to look at their daily outfits. Some celebrities have become style icons by dressing nicely every day. If an item is seen on many celebrities, it always become the trendy item. Their appearance on the red carpet also influence the fashion trends. Knock-offs of the gowns celebrities wear to the Academy Awards or the Golden Globes can always be found in cheaper stores. Even their costumes in TV shows can influence fashion. For example, what Blake Lively, Leighton Meester, and Taylor Momsen wear on Gossip Girl often becomes popular. So overall, I think celebrities play an important role in the fashion industry.
There are three celebrities that I think are influencing the current trend, and the style of whom I really like.
Blake Lively
She became famous after playing Serena van der Woodsen on Gossip Girl. Her daily style is just the same as Serena. She always look chic, with a few classic items. Her style is minimalistic, but not boring.

Emma Watson
More well-known as Hermione Granger from Harry Potter, Emma Watson's personal style gets better and better over the years. As the former spokesmodel for Burberry, she illustrates the British style perfectly. She is always seen in classic trenches. She never wears anything that shows too much skin, or anything that's too bold. Her style is very classy, sometimes laid back. Her new pixie cut is the most popular hairstyle right now.

Alexa Chung
A British model and TV presenter. She used to have a show on MTV called "It's On With Alexa Chung". She is also the contributing editor for British Vogue. Mulberry has a handbag named after her. Her style is quirky and fun. She can always be seen in some school-girl items, like button-down shirts, long-skirts and oxfords.She makes those items look fashionable.
