My favorite all-time English fashion icon is Twiggy! I love Twiggy’s authentic androgynous appeal that initially put her on the modelling market. I also admire Twiggy for more than her successful modelling career and influence in fashion. Her post-model endeavors, hosting her own talk show and role as a judge on America’s Next Top Model have enabled her to also connect with a broader audience too!

Kate Middleton’s style has influenced the modern English fashion industry significantly. I personally love her style because she always looks super chic, classic and sophisticated. I’m a huge fan of Kate’s fitted blazers and coats she’s frequently spotted in, but I’m more obsessed with her ornate hair pieces and hats!

I’m infatuated with English designer labels and street trends in general. Some London labels, I particularly love include Firetrap, ONLY, and Top Shop, plus there are tons more. Also, H&M, Anthropologie, GAP and other classic brands throughout America carry different, but much more authentic merchandise in the UK… I really love the way how English fashionistas always look classy and proper, while mixing and matching trends that take fashion to an eccentric level!
