I have a very hard time cultivating a long list of celebrities whose style I am enamored of, mostly due to the fact that I find 99.9% of celebrities to either be too trendy (lacking in classicism = in need of Chanel) or too tacky (tres Donatella). However, along with Leighton Meester, I am quite impressed by Emma Watson's taste. Watson was recently contracted to be the face of the new Chanel ad campaign, and New York magazine did a blurb highlighting this fact. Many commentators responded maliciously, saying she's too young, she's no Scarlett Johansson (Um, c'est juste. Thank God), etc. I think Emma is a great choice - she's classy and cultivating a very timeless style. I think she has enough street cred to join Kate's List of Legitimate Fashionistas:
As you can see, most of my style icons have one thing in common: they are usually photographed in jeans or Adidas track suits. But they also always choose timeless, gorgeous pieces for the Red Carpet or Parliament sessions. My kind of balance.
A side note: I am also fond of this guy (which all of you who have seen my "I'd be easy for Ronald Weasley" bumper sticker pinned to my cork board would know)...
