Taylor Tomasi Hill

Is it her enviable ability to mix prints and textures with aplomb? Her striking, flame-red hair? Her laid-back, low-maintenance attitude towards the craziness of the fashion world? Whatever the case, we—and the rest of the industry, clearly—are smitten with Moda Operandi's impossibly chic artistic director.

Olivia Palermo

This socialite/model/actress/blogger never fails to wow us with her spot-on outfits, which deftly mix high street brands with stunning designer pieces.

Sama and Haya Abu Khadra

These 18-year-old twins caught our attention with their gorgeous curls and sweet smiles. With personal style preferences as identical as their genes, these Dubai residents probably get a fair share of their good taste from their mother Rula, who owns posh Saudi Arabian boutique The Art of Living.

Lily Kwong

A recent graduate of Columbia University, this model/writer/do-gooder calls the Upper West Side home and Joseph Altuzarra her cousin. She was raised in San Francisco, though, which might expect the thoughtful mix of high-end yet laid-back pieces she generally wears. A true bicoastal dresser!

Kate Foley

Opening Ceremony's adorable blonde-haired buyer hails from jolly old London, cut her teeth working with star stylist Charlotte Stockdale and has mastered the tricky art of wearing socks with platform sandals. You'll usually spot her in a mix of Rodarte, Proenza Schouler and OC's in-house label.

Natalie Massenet

Is it any wonder that Net-a-Porter's founder and executive chairman has one of the world's most insanely covetable wardrobes? Must be nice to write off your clothing purchases as "professional research." Oh wait...we do that, too. Albeit on far, far smaller budgets.

Hanne Gaby Odiele

She's walked pretty much every important catwalk the fashion industry has to offer—but even as this Belgian model's star has risen, she hasn't lost her unique, offbeat personal style. Hot pants? Crop tops? Neon lipstick? All in an off-duty day's work for this superstar.

Gaia Repossi

Outrageous outfits à la Anna Dello Russo are great and all, but it's nice to see a fashion minimalist earn some street style respect from time to time. Gaia designs full-finger filigree rings and diamond-studded cuffs that make editors swoon—but for her own day-to-day looks, the front row fixture favors sleek, streamlined looks from Balenciaga and Céline.

Elena Perminova

Rarely do you find a model whose off-duty wardrobe consists of the same couture ensembles she's tasked with wearing on the runway. Then again, Elena's not like most mannequins.

Caroline de Maigret

One of Karl Lagerfeld's go-to gals, Caroline's a runway and editorial favorite who also happens to produce music along with her boyfriend. Her blunt bangs, oh-so-Parisian insouciance and general immunity towards the aging process make her undeniable street style bait.

Alexandra Golovanoff

We wish Alexandra's TV show, La Mode La Mode La Mode, aired outside of France—if only for the chance to scope out more of her amazing Parisian-chic outfits. Her taste isn't outrageous—she's more into wardrobe classics like well-tailored jackets, lace dresses and printed blouses—but man, can this journalist put together an eye-catching outfit.

Michelle Reneau

Aritzia's fashion director—formerly NYLON's market director—always looks just as sharp as the folks she styles. A master of the high-low mix, Reneau favors interesting outerwear and bright colors with an athletic edge.

Joanna Hillman

This Toronto native cut her teeth working for super-stylist Lori Goldstein, then moved on to Teen Vogue and later to Harper's Bazaar, where she's now the title's style director. With Joanna's long, sideswept hair and signature red lipstick, it's little wonder street style photographers adore her.

Giovanna Battaglia

Giovanna was once Dolce & Gabbana's in-house fit model, so it's no wonder the L'Uomo Vogue editor and W contributer looks awesome in pretty much anything she puts on.

Emmanuelle Alt

When we talk about how much we'd like to dress like a French girl, we really just mean we'd like to dress like Emmanuelle. The Vogue Paris editor's fashion formula—skinny jeans, bold-shouldered blazer, tousled hair—never fails.

Anne-Catherine Frey

French label The Kooples is known for its boy-meets-girl, highly-tailored aesthetic—so it should come as no surprise that the brand's most-photographed designer is a paragon of androgynous chic. Her blog's called A Truly Intriguing Subject—a description its author not-so-coincidentally happens to embody.

Anya Ziourova

Tatler Russia's fashion director also happens to be a talented celebrity stylist who's worked with the likes of Diane Kruger, Katy Perry and Sofia Vergara. When it comes to her own personal style, Anya favors bold colors and sleek, sculptural cuts.

Anna Dello Russo

Kate Middleton (and the rest of her royal wedding party) might be responsible for the fascinator's sudden popularity, but it's Vogue Japan's outrageous editor-at-large who's actually adopted the kooky accessory into her everyday life. She also taught us how to take a "fashion shower," designed a collection for H&M and continues to wow us with her crazy-bold style sense.

"Mira," whose work you may have spotted in Harper's Bazaar Russia, Tatler and Glamour, is yet another Russian stunner dominating today's street style scene. She applies her editorial expertise to her day-to-day dressing, mixing classic labels like Chanel and Céline with new ones like Ostwald Helgason.

Kate Lanphear

The former Elle style director—who's recently slipped into the same role at T—is one of the most easily-spotted street style stars around. If her white-blonde sideswept hair doesn't give her away, the black-on-black-on-black wardrobe and loads of dangerous-looking silver jewelry ought to do it.

Julia Sarr-Jamois

Wonderland's stunning editrix is half Senegalese, half French and 100 percent stylish. Favoring colorful brights and comfy flat footwear, she brings a breath of fresh air to the intensity of Fashion Month. She's also the owner of the most incredible head of hair in the entire industry.

Jenna Lyons

Why is J.Crew one of the hottest brands on the face of the planet today? Among other reasons, every girl we know wants to dress exactly like Jenna. It doesn't really matter whether the retailer's president and executive creative director was first to mix sequins with chambray—what matters is that she was the first to do it well.

Elisa Nalin

This stylist, consultant and mom loves mixing bold prints and patterns. Her signature accessory? Why, that peroxide-blonde cropped 'do, of course.

Carine Roitfeld

She may have moved on from her post as editor-in-chief of Vogue Paris—hello, CR Fashion Book!—but Carine's signature smoky eye makeup and Givenchy-, Balenciaga- and McQueen-packed wardrobe still make her one of the industry's most sought-after stars.

Zanna Roberts Rassi

Ulyana Sergeenko

With a still-young couture label to her name, this alabaster-skinned beauty is bringing traditional Russian chic back to fashion's forefront—think floor-length coats, headscarves and major fur. You'll often find her hanging out with her pals Vika and Mira—both also on our list.

Peony Lim

This Chinese/British style phenom launched her blog just a couple of years ago, after being frequently photographed by street style shutterbugs near her UK university. It's not hard to see why they went gaga over her ensembles—Peony's a layering pro with an eye for interesting proportions and fantastic hats.

Michelle Harper

If this socialite and brand consultant's unique hairstyle—shaved close on the sides, twisted and knotted up top—doesn't catch your eye during Fashion Month, her incredible personal couture collection will. Michelle regularly trots the globe in everything from feathered fascinators to colorful bug-eyed sunglasses to ball gowns.

Leandra Medine

Leandra's built a veritable empire on her ability to repel the opposite gender with her avant-garde outfit choices. She may have gotten hitched recently, but she's still one of the most captivating style stars out there today.

Ece Sukan

Vogue Turkey's editor-at-large—who does double-duty as the owner of one of Instanbul's most beloved vintage shops—embraces an eclectic, accessory-driven look we love.

Hanneli Mustaparta

Today, it's pretty common for a famous blogger to do double-duty as a model or brand representative—but in the case of this Norwegian stunner, things actually happened in reverse. Hanneli's got runway-worthy looks, sure, but her photography and styling skills are nothing to sneeze at. It's little wonder that designers are clamoring to dress her.

FilmMagic

Candice Lake

Like Hanneli, Candice is a model-turned-photographer who dresses every bit as beautifully as her industry-insider subjects. She eschews the usual shutterbug style of jeans and tees for colorful statement sweaters, monochromatic layers and classic accessories—and we most definitely approve.

Alexa Chung

If you need an explanation as to why this TV personality/muse/model made the cut, you're on the wrong fashion site. Seriously.

Vika Gazinskaya

Born and raised in Moscow, Vika worked as a stylist at L'Officiel Russia before launching her own namesake collection in 2007. Of course, nobody wears this designer's luxe, architectural pieces better than, well, Vika herself—as many a street style photographer is happy to document.

Vanessa Traina

The stunning daughter of novelist Danielle Steel, Vanessa's BFF with folks like Joseph Altuzarra, Alexander Wang and the Proenza Schouler boys—whose designs she regularly wears in the front row. The San Francisco-bred stylist, who's worked for the likes of Vogue, Vanity Fair and T, also favors Givenchy and Balenciaga for both brands' famously sculptural silhouettes.

Tiffany Hsu

With her knack for mixing sky-high stilettos with ankle socks and sweatshirts with several-thousand-dollar designer skirts, this Selfridges buyer's got her style game on lock. She also possesses some of the most perfectly, enviably sleek hair in the industry.

Shala Monroque

This stunning St. Lucian and creative director of Garage wears hot-off-the-runway Prada better than most highly-paid models. We're sure her artsy significant other, famous gallerist Larry Gagosian, appreciates her sartorial creativity too.

Christine Centenera

This Vogue Australia editor also consults with Kanye West, and played a pivotal role in the launch of the rapper's namesake ready-to-wear collection. She sure looks good in those $6,000 heels Yeezy made with Giuseppe Zanotti, no?

Caroline Issa

She may have a business degree from Wharton and a background in finance—but now, Tank's executive fashion director is all about studying (and embodying) style.

Cara Delevingne

While older sis Poppy's had her fair share of street style fame, it's mega-model Cara with whom we're currently obsessed. When she's not storming the runway, the British beauty keeps it real in tailored jackets, skinny trousers, comfy boots or sneakers and her ever-present beanie.

Bryan Boy

It'd be impossible to assemble a street style star roundup without including the widely-read, often-controversial Bryan Grey Yambao. This Filipino fashion maven was one of the first personal style bloggers to make it big in the now-saturated digital space—he launched his site in 2004, and has since had a Marc Jacobs bag named after him and appeared as a judge on America's Next Top Model. Dang.
