The Minimalist: Rachael Taylor
"I don't wear any accessories at all, except for this guy!"
"It's unfortunate that I live literally across the street from the A.P.C. store in the West Village."
"I always feel good in a masculine shoe, like a brogue or a loafer. I typically veer towards flats and not heels."
Rachael Loves Menswear

"Give me a good blazer, a pair of jeans and a white T-shirt, and I'm set."

Jane Birkin: unexpectedly sexy in a short suit and knee-high boots.

The Risk Taker: Tao Okamoto
“I’m drawn to clothes with interesting silhouettes.”
"I'm not a heel person. I'm already tall!"
"I'm a good friend of Phillip Lim's—I love seeing him when I'm in New York. You can wear Phillip every day; he has such simple, wearable pieces that still stand out."
"I have so many dresses—I just keep buying them! I used to have very short hair, so I started wearing feminine dresses to balance out the boyish cut."
The Girly Girl: Kiernan Shipka
“I’ve always loved classic Old Hollywood style—Grace Kelly, Audrey Hepburn.”
"I love Red Valentino! I love classic Valentino, but Red Valentino, with all its fun bows, suits my style better at the moment."
"I love Rag & Bone; their stuff is kind of simple, but it has a really fun vibe to it. I love their booties."
"I recently bought a sleeveless navy Kenzo dress. It's my obsession. I wear it probably four days a week."
Her Classic Hollywood Style

The Jet-Setter: Chanel Iman
"I love a comfy chic look—one you can throw on to get a coffee in and still look good."
"Love a nice pair of tights—the ones with a design on them. Henry Holland did some."
She’s worked with some of the biggest fashion names in the world (Tom Ford! Donna Karan! Stella McCartney!), so it’s no surprise this top model’s (ever-changing) look is always completely stunning.
"A fur coat keeps you so warm. It's glamorous and low-key."
"I love snapbacks!"
For evenings, she favors elegant dresses with a sexy, standout detail, like a fire engine red Bensoni shift with ruffle-embellished shoulders or a lacy Dolce & Gabbana in brilliant white.
The Chameleon: Jessica Paré
“I really like a retro influence, especially styles from the early ’60s.”
Jessica’s French Style Inspiration: Charlotte Gainsbourg
The London-born singer-actress (and daughter of Jane Birkin) could be the poster child for Left Bank chic.
"I very rarely wear flats anymore. Nothing under three inches. If I have an event, I like to say that if I can walk or breathe comfortably, there's something wrong."
Jessica's French Style Inspiration: Marion Cotillard
She’s proof that red-carpet style can be at once glamorous and interesting.
"I really like a retro influence, especially styles from the early '60s. The reason the classic 'Joan dress' has made such a resurgence is because it's extremely flattering and very, very feminine. And I have a feminine body, so it's appealing to me for sure."
Jessica's French Style Inspiration: Françoise Hardy
Her singular tomboy aesthetic made this ’70s actress-musician a style icon.
"Jason Wu is at the top of my list. I happen to think he's one of the best people in the world."
