We’re only a couple of months into 2024, and already we’ve been treated to enough killer outfit inspiration to see us through the next 12 months and then some. From the Spring/Summer 2024 runways to the beginning of awards season, designers, influencers and street style stars alike have come up with new ways to reinvent old favourites, but one group we always look to for sartorial pointers are of course, the best dressed celebs.
As much as we may want to believe that celebrities are people just like us, the truth is, they have the access and the means to get some of the most exciting pieces way ahead of them landing in stores, so what we spot on the red carpets and in off-duty outfits now is invariably what the rest of us will want to get our hands on in a matter of months time. But who has the most coveted wardrobe in Hollywood? I asked my fellow editors to decide.
In the spirit of the fantasy football draft (go, sports!), we sifted through scores of A-list players, knocking out entrants with each round until we came up with six power players who make up the ultimate line up. From tailored pop stars to effortlessly chic actresses, these are the celebs who our team would happily swap wardrobes with. Keep scrolling see the winners, shop their look, and decide which team you’re rooting for in 2024.
“I’m always excited when there’s a new sighting of minimalist queen Jennifer Lawrence. Her pared-back style tends to focus on quality and cut, and no matter the combination, her outfits always have a timeless, chic, ‘anti-trend’ appeal. These days you can always find her with an It bag in tow, and if she isn’t the perfect investment-wardrobe-icon, I don’t know who is.” Florrie Alexander, Acting Affiliates Editor
“Zoë Kravitz will always be the ultimate cool-girl for me because every outfit she wears looks so effortless, yet somehow so put-together. Her style is just so multifaceted: a vintage 50s shift dress, a print clash, red-carpet glamour or ripped jeans and a biker jacket? She’s just the laidback fashion girl that can do it all, and I can’t help but fall for everything she steps out in.” Rebecca Rhys Evans, Senior Fashion and Beauty, Branded Content Editor
“Now, be honest—when it comes to celebrity style, there’s no one quite like Victoria Beckham. Who else could wear platform heels to the airport? Be able to poke fun at themselves with a slogan tee? Singlehandedly transform WAG culture from front-page-tabloid-fodder to front-row invitee? From being the chicest Spice Girl to a well-respected designer, Victoria’s everyday wardrobe is an exercise in how to look expensive, at all times. You will never catch her in jeans and trainers, she is always tailored to perfection—motivation for those of us who always fall back on the quickest thing to hand to take a little extra time getting ready in the morning. And when in doubt, a wide-leg trouser or a pencil skirt are always sure to rise to the occasion.” Remy Farrell, Fashion Editor
“There’s no denying that over the last few years, Laura Harrier has earned herself the title of one of the chicest celebs in Hollywood. Stylish but with a girl-next-door kind of charm, Harrier often heads out in looks that are simple and polished, but with fresh, trend-forward touch. Add in a hefty dose of covetable It buys and some Parisian influences and you have yourself a celebrity wardrobe that not only is incredibly chic, but actually easy to emulate and wear too. Opt for classic pieces like French-girl flats, elegant blouses and pretty dresses to steal her style.” Poppy Nash, Managing Editor
“Model Elsa Hosk has impeccable off-duty taste (and clearly the budget or connections to match); often tapping into key designer looks before any other celebrity. I particularly like her more sophisticated and “grown-up” looks in tonal hues, with classy accessories and an overall feeling of being very uptown. The “Mob wife” aesthetic? I’m not 100% sold, but I can get behind Hosk’s penchant for long coats, heels, and an impressive collection of skirts (of various lengths). The very definition of ‘loud luxury’.” Hannah Almassi, Editor-in-Chief
“Jasmine Tookes’s style first caught my eye a few years ago and I’ve been trying to channel her glossy aesthetic ever since. As well has having one of the best collections of Hèrmes Birkins I’ve ever seen, it’s her styling flair that really sets her apart, dressing with an intuition that’s down to nature, not nurture. Honing her skills over the years, Tookes’s outfits whisper luxury without ever having to try too hard—her blazer-and-jeans outfits look meant to be worn together, the way she casually knots a sweater around her shoulders or waist, always sitting just so. Sticking to a palette of neutrals, the model dresses with the assurance that everything just works, giving her the bandwidth to try new silhouettes and pairings. Her off-the-shoulder top and wide-leg trouser outfit is a recently favourite of mine.” Maxine Eggenberger, Deputy Editor
