With the rise of social media and smart phones, celebrities have to look impeccable whether gracing the red carpet or off-duty. Every outfit is carefully curated because when done right, a well-placed accessory or unexpected colour and print can launch an overnight trend. 

In fact, we’ve witnessed several Singapore designers propelled into the international spotlight with Hollywood heavyweights representing these labels in the celebrity style scene. Take for example Adam Lambert wearing Depression, Kerry Washington in Charles & Keith as well as Mick Jagger all decked out by Lisa Von Tang. Other rising Singapore fashion designers and industry headliners include Ong Shunmugam, Reckless Ericka, Carrie K, Stolen, and many more.

If you’re looking for style inspo on how to stand out in a crowd like a bona fide star, we’ve got you sorted. From Lisa of Blackpink to style influencer Irene Kim to the Duchess of Cambridge Kate Middleton, these three women are some of the most stylish names in the world right now, each with her own distinctive style.

1. Lisa from Blackpink

Thai rapper Lisa Manoban is part of the phenomenal K-pop girl group Blackpink. Young and sassy, she is fast becoming one of the world’s most-watched style mavens. Whether it’s a pair of understated indigo jeans or a full-blown printed cardigan, Lisa manages to look fresh and girlie at the same time.

2. Irene Kim

Model, TV personality and social media superstar Irene Kim is not afraid to try new things. From her technicolour hair to bold fashion choices, Kim has always stayed ahead of the style curve. Take for example this simple black-and-white ensemble. Kim manages to turn it up several notches by pairing a simple white turtleneck with a glossy black leather jacket. How chic is that?

3. Kate Middleton

Always elegant and immaculate, The Duchess of Cambridge is never seen with a hair out of place. From makeup to accessories to clothes, hers is a classic style that’s most befitting for royalty. What we love about this printed long-sleeved number is the clean silhouette. Complemented with a pair of neutral espadrille wedges and delicate earrings, Kate exudes poise and ladylike sophistication.
