Some of our favorite fashions are inspired by famous personalities.
While our budgets might not be in the same place, it’s fun to look at celebrity styles, and check out the labels, colors and cuts they wear. So, we asked our panel to tell us what famous closet they’d like to snoop through.
If you had the chance to visit one celebrity’s closet, who would you choose and why?
Alexandria Keener: The one celebrity’s closet I would love to be able to get into would be Rachel Zoe’s. She isn’t afraid to mix and match or try new styles. She manages to pull off a fashionable casual look, and I love stealing some of her ideas.
She is a celebrity stylist/designer and she always finds great deals for her clients and herself. She doesn’t only shop at the big department stores, she also shops at consignment and thrift stores all over. She shows everyone that you can find great deals anywhere, you just have to look.
She also runs her own blog called The Zoe Report. She shares items she is currently in love with, and it’s not just clothing. She also talks about beauty products and books. She always seems down to earth in all of her interviews and I know her closet would be to die for.
Caroline Morris: To be honest my first instinct was Diane Von Furstenberg because over the years I seem to always have a piece of her line in my wardrobe. The style has remained very classic. Colors and cut changed only slightly. Stylish, but comfortable.
Really though I would love a peek at Kate Middleton’s closet. A conversation with her would be a bonus. I love the fact that she is so levelheaded and sure of herself that an item from Topshop is as valuable to her as an item from a designer’s latest collection. She always looks nice with a slight twist to make her up-to-date, but still so suitable for her appearances. She is truly grace in her demeanor and her clothes reflect a confidence in herself.
With one phone call or crook of her finger, she could summon designers from around the world, but she seems to depend upon her own judgment. What’s not to admire?
Melissa Stiles: Choosing only one celebrity’s closet to visit is a harder question that I thought. If I had to choose, I would visit either Khloé Kardashian’s or Solange’s. Kardashian always wears pieces that allow her to have a sophisticated look while flattering her curves. She always looks put-together whether she is just hanging out at the NBA game or on the red carpet.
Although I love Khloe’s timeless look with pops of color, lately, I have been always looking to see what Solange Knowles is wearing. Over the past few months, she has been mixing prints and making it look amazing. Solange has always been one to take chances in fashion and not afraid to stand out, making her closet probably pretty fun to visit.
