Britain's Fashion Icons

Britain is commonly known for its bad food and bad weather however some of the iconic faces in music, pop culture and fashion come from the island. You can either love them or hate them but surely you know their names and what they do for a living.

One of the biggest bleeps on the fashion radar is certainly Kate Moss. She has managed to bring into fashion the tight waistcoat and the cut off denim shorts and we have to love her for that. Her look is copied over and over again by many young girls (and not only them!). Her style is glamorous and sexy both on the catwalk and in real life. It doesn’t matter if she had a troubled past (which actually made her more popular than she already was) we still love Kate Moss!

Their minutes of fame are long gone but not so many years ago they were considered Britain’s sweethearts. The famous Spice Girls became celebrities not only because of their number one hits but also because of the outfits they wore both on stage and off stage. With their different, strong personalities the five British singers adopted a style for everyone: posh, baby, scary, sporty and ginger spice. Both their fashion choices and their songs (that managed to conquer the whole world) will remain in history

Vivienne Westwood is one of the biggest fashion designers in the world who is also 100% British. The new wave fashion style and the punk style, that are so greatly appreciated by the celebrities and normal people, are her creation. The guys from Sex Pistols where the first celebrities that wore the creations of Vivienne. Her punk fashion style included, among others, safety pins, razors, bicycle chains combined with shocking make-up and hairstyles. However, besides the outrageous outfits she creates and wears, she also has a down to earth side that has captured the interest of some very famous celebrities among which is Sarah Jessica Parker. She has constantly worn Vivienne’s creations in the movie we all love: Sex and the City.

These are just some of the famous people the British can be proud of. They have influenced us and have made us love them!
