The UK is home to some of the most globally-renowned style icons in the world, whose fashion tastes we cannot help but admire. It’s time to take a look at five of the country’s most influential and inspiring fashion icons.
Kate Moss is one of the world’s most iconic supermodels and has been a household name for a quarter of a century. She was first discovered in 1988 aged 14 and became a global star after working with Calvin Klein. In 2013, she was awarded for her contribution to the fashion world at the British Fashion Awards. She has modelled for Vogue, Channel, Rimmel, Yves Saint Laurent and many more.
Dame Vivienne Westwood first came to prominence in the late 1970s and is credited with bringing punk and new wave-inspired fashion into the mainstream. She created clothes for Malcolm McLaren’s King’s Road boutique SEX and has opened shops all over the world after launching her first four outlets in London.
Victoria Beckham has come a long way in the fashion world since the break-up of the Spice Girls and is now an internationally-renowned style icon and designer. She launched her own fashion label in 2008 after years of working for other brands, and the label was named as the designer brand of the year in 2011. Her bi-annual show at the New York Fashion Week is now regarded as one of the most unmissable highlights of the event.
TV presenter, model and former girlfriend of the Arctic Monkeys’ Alex Turner, Alexa Chung is now a contributing editor at the UK edition of Vogue. She has appeared in campaigns for New Look, DKNY Jeans, Pepe Jeans London and Lacoste as well as working on shows with the likes of Stella McCartney. She has also featured in various campaigns for Longchamp and won the British Style Award on three occasions.
