17 Stars Who Don't Play By Fashion Rules

Pretty is nice. Interesting is better.

Posted on

1. Jemima Kirke

As the London-born, NYC-raised daughter of a rock star and the owner of a beloved Manhattan vintage store, it's no surprise that Kirke's style is just as wonderfully quirky as that of her Girls counterpart, Jessa Johansson.

2. Tessa Thompson

The Creed actor has spoken at length about the inspiration she gets from thrift shops, and often takes risks with unconventional shapes and details (that totally pay off).


5. Lupita Nyong'o

Nyong'o built her red carpet reputation on classic cuts in bright colors, and has since expanded her repertoire to include more looks that are weird and wonderful.

7. Amandla Stenberg

Stenberg's red carpet choices are wonderfully radical — the perfect fit for someone who won't shy away from conversations about race and feminism, and who always says what she means.


11. Janelle Monae

Monae always looked amazing in her signature tux, but it's exciting to see the archandroid stepping out in more diverse looks, too.

12. Kristen Stewart

On her off time, Stewart tends to stick to jeans and t-shirts — but when it comes to events, she's a sucker for edgy embellishments.


14. Tilda Swinton

Much like her brother from another mother David Bowie, Swinton looks equally natural (and stupendous) in both masculine and feminine ensembles.

15. Nicole Richie

Richie's style has come a long way since The Simple Life. Once a poster child for stylist Rachel Zoe's signature boho look, Richie's sartorial choices have evolved into something uniquely her.

17. Chloe Sevigny

Ah, the grand dame of weird red carpet looks. This list just wouldn't be the same without her. *Bows to the queen*
