The 10 best teen style icons
It’s not all awkward phases and poor fashion choices – these teenage stars have got talent, looks, personality and serious style to top it off. We run through our top ten teen fashion icons.
10. SELENA GOMEZ
After breaking out on the Disney Channel at just 15, Selena Gomez became a favourite for teenagers looking for a laidback, casual style. Since then, her look has grown up with her, and now she opts for more sophisticated shapes, tailoring and plenty of embellishment.
9. CHLOE MORETZ
Chloe’s got style smarts as well as talent to boot – at premieres she’s a fan of age-appropriate looks from young designers like Christopher Kane and Proenza Schouler, as well as off-duty looks that riff on skatewear and street style for her days off.
She’s the renegade on the pop scene, and 18-year-old Lorde has gained plenty of fans for her tough-yet-elegant goth style. With influence from the likes of Stevie Nicks and Grace Jones, her unique dress sense puts her firmly on any list of best-dressed teens.
7. ELLE FANNING
Style started young for Elle Fanning, who quickly followed her older sister Dakota onto Hollywood’s best-dressed lists. The 16-year-old actress is a pro at combining fun femininity with a real style edge, mixing hip labels like Opening Ceremony and Miu Miu with vintage pieces and quirky accessories.
6. TAVI GEVINSON
Her blog Style Rookie made her an internet sensation at just eleven, and since then Tavi has harnessed her energies into many exciting projects. And her style has evolved along the way, too, into sweet and sophisticated looks with plenty of her signature wit and fun.
5. MALIA OBAMA
Growing up in the public eye isn’t easy, but Malia Obama has shown how to do it with poise. Now 16, she often chooses easy, elegant shapes and bright vibrant colours and prints for public appearances with the First Family of the United States.
4. JADEN SMITH
With his devil-may-care attitude, Jaden Smith is making a name for himself as a style star. The 16-year-old is a pro at combining hip-hop and streetwear with an eclectic California bohemian vibe that makes his look truly unique.
3. BROOKLYN BECKHAM
Brooklyn Beckham isn’t afraid of his family’s fashionable legacy – he’s already been anointed as the chosen one by the fashion world, landing himself on the cover of men’s mag Man About Town and ensuring style icon status for himself at a young age.
2. KIERNAN SHIPKA
She first appeared on our screens as Mad Men’s Sally Draper aged just nine, and since then actress Kiernan has grown into a bona-fide style star. She favours elegant, fun shapes, girly dresses and plenty of vintage for everyday and red-carpet looks.
