The October 2014 issue of ELLE is all about Personal Style. Lorde graces the cover, and she definitely has a strong sense of personal style. From the runway to the red carpet and beyond, ELLE rounded up the year’s biggest trendsetters in the 2014 Personal Style Awards. The best-dressed awards are part of the annual October Personal Style Issue. RELATED: Lorde covers Elle’s October 2014 Personal Style issue.
Here’s a look at some of this year’s winners:
The Beat Goes On: Solange and Rita Ora – Queen Bey and her bodysuits have some competition in Solange’s bold new ’70s (Diana Ross–inspired?) look. Fellow musician Rita Ora is making music offstage with her own high-voltage, sporty style and a collaboration with Adidas.
Separated at Birth: Taylor Swift and Karlie Kloss – No, you’re not seeing double. Ever since leggy pop darling Taylor Swift made her runway debut in December’s Victoria’s Secret fashion show, she and her doppelgänger/bestie, supermodel Karlie Kloss have been inseparable—so too have their clean-and-casual off-duty wardrobes.
Hippies Who Clean Up Nicely: Shailene Woodley and Dakota Johnson – Her clay-eating, herb-foraging proclivities aside, self-proclaimed hippie Shailene Woodley’s style couldn’t be less bohemian. The Divergent star, who recently wowed in midriff-baring Balmain, isn’t the only flower child on the block. Dakota Johnson has a green streak as well, frequently favoring vintage frocks that cut against her Fifty Shades of Grey casting.
Star-Making Stars: Lupita Nyong’o and Rihanna – Who needs critical acclaim? The fastest way to fashion world fame is to dress one of these trendsetters. Oscar winner Lupita Nyong’o and pop princess Rihanna have proven track records of making young designers household names.
Model Mommy: Stephanie Seymour and Natalia Vodianova – You’ll be hard-pressed to find any ripped denim in mother of four Stephanie Seymour’s Alaïa-filled wardrobe (though there is the matter of that thorny rose-vine tattoo that still encircles her right ankle). And Natalia Vodianova has been playing the polished Parisian alongside new partner (and father of her five-month-old son, Maxim) LVMH scion Antoine Arnault. Bring on the Dior!
Sibling Rivalry: Kendall Jenner and Lottie Moss – Kendall Jenner’s high-fashion turn—and relatively covered-up look—has helped the budding model outshine her big sisters Kim and Khloé. And while Lottie Moss has decidedly larger shoes to fill, she’s off to a running start with a CK Jeans campaign of her own and a pared-down personal style—after all, the Moss family cheekbones are statement accessories unto themselves.
Red-Carpet Prim: Zoe Kazan and Astrid Bergès-Frisbey – Actresses Zoe Kazan and Astrid Bergès-Frisbey are proving to be the old souls of red-carpet style—in the best possible way. ELLE finds their timelessly elegant looks from Honor and Chanel refreshing in a sea of starlets in desperate need of proper underpinnings.
