Taylor Swift for Ralph Lauren
Sure, the country-pop sweetheart's already got a Cover Girl contract—but besides a gig with Keds, she hasn't done much in the way of fashion campaigns thus far. We can think of no better match for the red-lipped, blonde-haired songstress than Ralph Lauren, the king of classic all-American style.
Kerry Washington for Stella McCartney
Every few years, a relatively under-the-radar actress comes along whose innate style sense seriously blows our minds. Past examples—at least for this editor—have included Zoe Saldana, Kate Bosworth and Elle Fanning. This year, that lady is Kerry Washington. The star didn't miss a sartorial beat throughout her Django Unchained press tour, during which she wore a wide variety of top-notch designers (Peter Pilotto, Giles and Prada among them). Still, we think she looks best dressed in Stella McCartney's bright colors and feminine silhouettes. We would love to see her tapped as the label's next star ambassador.
Saoirse Ronan for Rodarte
With her sci-fi flick The Host slated for release this March and expected to draw the same crowds as another little Stephenie Meyer-based franchise (ahem, that'd be Twilight), Saoirse's star is set to rise in a big way. Her ethereal Irish beauty is a perfect match for Rodarte's brand of avante-garde cool.
Leelee Sobieski for Céline
With her patrician features and piercing blue eyes, Leelee's quickly become a designer darling over the past year or so. Unlike many young starlets who opt for ultra-embellished mermaid gowns and towering platforms every time they set foot on a red carpet, this 29-year-old mom is constantly snapped in chic suiting and flat, almost mannish footwear—the influence of her menswear-designer husband Adam Kimmel, perhaps? At any rate, we think she'd be an ideal face for Céline. Heck, Leelee could even make those furry Birkenstocks look good.
Emma Watson for Christopher Kane
Now that PPR's acquired a majority stake in Kane's company and pledged to help him grow his brand in a big way, the British Fashion Council Fashion Fund winner's going to need a famous face to front his label. Emma's already got a soft spot for UK-based designers (see also: Peter Pilotto, Erdem) and, ever since the Harry Potter series wrapped, she's majorly upped her fashion game. We think these two would be very happy together.
Michelle Dockery for Alexander McQueen
We already know the Downton Abbey star can pull off ornate embellishment both on- and off-screen. Now's the time for a major label to capitalize on her insane popularity—and, well, McQueen was made for the royal set.
Chloë Grace Moretz for Kenzo
With Opening Ceremony's creative directors Humberto Leon and Carol Lim at its helm, Kenzo's been completely reinvigorated over the past several years—and deserves a celebrity face to match its new top-tier status. Chloë, who'll soon be seen in Kimberly Peirce's buzzed-about Carrie reboot, is one of the most talented (not to mention stylish) young actresses around. Add that to the fact that she's worn Kenzo publicly several times in the past, and this would be one authentic and awesome team-up.
Jessica Chastain for Jason Wu
Following her recent Golden Globe win, Zero Dark Thirty's leading lady is officially one of the most sought-after women in Hollywood. She's worn all manner of glamorous gowns on this season's red carpets, but we think she looks most beautiful in Jason Wu's ultra-feminine creations. These two still-rising stars would be a perfect fit for one another—especially now that Wu's finally doing print campaigns.
