By being the first to wear the latest-breaking trends, these fabulous fashionistas set the bar high in Hollywood.
Sienna Miller, 23, in a Chloé dress, Rag and Bone jeans and Fendi bag: A couple of years ago, the soon-to-be Mrs. Jude Law epitomized the boho-chic look that’s become all the rage. Now she’s experimenting with more polished designer looks, but she’s hardly kicked her cowboy boot habit.
Mischa Barton, 19, in Anna Sui top and Miss Sixty jeans: As the trend-setting Marissa Cooper on “The O.C.” and as a real-life diva-in-training, Barton has a knack for wearing tomorrow’s trends today. Designers practically throw clothes at her, but she wears what she wants.
Kate Bosworth, 22, in Louis Vuitton: Orlando Bloom’s ex has always known how to pick ’em — from sexy Chanel numbers to the latest from Marc Jacobs. Even when her stylist, Jessica Paster, isn’t pulling the clothes, Bosworth looks of-the-moment. Samaire Armstrong, 24, in Naru: Not a label-loving fashion plate, Armstrong designs her own clothing line (Naru), so she doesn’t have to wait for anything to hit the pages of a magazine before she wears it.
Taryn Manning, 26, in Primp sweater and blazer and FrankieB. pants: Though designers may come calling when her five films open this year, this actress-singer and Born Uniqorn designer’s best looks will always be self-styled.
Kirsten Dunst, 22, in Prada: She loves mixing vintage finds with hot-off-the-runway pieces. No matter what Dunst wears, inevitably, a few months later, everyone wants it.
Rachel Bilson, 23, in Thakoon top and Marc by Marc Jacobs pants: A vintage lover, Bilson prefers the supercool looks that her “The O.C.” alter ego, Summer Roberts, would probably call “Eeeew!”
Mandy Moore, 21, in her own clothes: Another actress-singer-clothing designer (Mblem), Moore sniffs out mainstream trends before the rest of the pack. Her look is young and appealing, just like her films.
By bucking the trend system, these stylish stars
manage to stand apart from the fashion pack.
Maggie Gyllenhaal, 27, in her own clothes: A champion of young designers, Gyllenhaal isn’t afraid to look different. Fashion watchers may
disagree, but movie watchers give her a thumbs-up.
Rachel McAdams, 27, in her own top and vintage skirt: She may have played a “plastic” in “Mean Girls,” but her style is anything but artificial. McAdams shuns forced fashion, wearing what makes her comfortable.
Ashley and Mary-Kate Olsen, 18, in Marc Jacobs coats: Now that they’re adults, these twin media moguls do — and wear — whatever they please, making them easy to spot in a crowd.
Zooey Deschanel, 25, in Petro Zillia: She often chooses vintage looks over current clothes, but even with new designers, her look leans toward the ladylike.
Kiera Knightley, 19, in Kate O’Connor top and Seven jeans: So far, she’s known for her
period movie roles, but in real life, Knightley rocks a modern ’do and sometimes retro clothes, a gorgeous anachronism.
Amber Tamblyn, 21, in a T-shirt she designed: Tamblyn has never minded what the magazines say. The “Joan of Arcadia” star is individual and outspoken, which always gets her noticed.
Bijou Phillips, 24, in her own dress: This bad girl draws stares wherever she goes, for her outrageous antics as much as her offbeat, body-conscious clothes.
Eva Amurri, 19, in her own dress: This bombshell takes after mom Susan Sarandon — she’s got loads of talent, and she wears the clothes, rather than letting them wear her.
