15 Street Style Icons We Admire

//15 Street Style Icons We Admire

We all have people that we look up to! It is not even about the level of creativity, but just the fact that some people observe and take on primary research elements stronger than others. People in the fashion world often get inspired by other artists who have a natural talent of seeking a way of expression for this creative core that I am sure we all wish we had. They have this amazing ability to design, photograph or style an outfit that strikes out from the mass. This little something that makes them more special, that makes them iconic!


Throughout the history there has been style icons, from really different fields and eras of fashion, who people remember, follow and adore! From Marie Antoinette to Twiggy, from  Edie Sedgwick to Madonna, from Princess Diana to Audrey Hepburn and all those other amazing characters from the colorful world of fashion! Only difference here is that today, designers, stylists, photographers etc. also get inspired from the street style and top-down and has transformed a lot to bottom-up effect! All those amazing bloggers and characters that street style photographers desire to capture, is who we are focusing on today!

About the Author:

A fashion photographer from Estonia who is taking BA degree studies in Southampton Solent University, United Kingdom. Currently based in Lisbon, Portugal. Fashion and photography have always been a great passion of mine, which is why, after a short period of art and photography studies in Odder, Denmark, I decided to commit myself to a BA degree in fashion photography to grow as an artist, improve the technical skills and deeply understand the behind the scene of fashion industry. Curious and adventurous personality allows me to explore fashion photography from different angles. I enjoy working in the studio and outdoors, creating a different narrative and look each time. Until now, I also styled and directed on hair and make-up on the shoots. The outcome is always edited and retouched by me. I am also interested in graphic design and take a great pleasure combining these two fields that are so strongly connected.
