Who do you find stylish?

I want some style inspiration. I had a look at some bloggers/youtubers but they all just tend to wear what's in in that season and you can tell it's been sent for free/whatever the arrangement is and they're just styling it a bit, I don't really find that anyone has a genuine sense of style.

So who do you find genuinely stylish? Like even if they wear fashionable things their general look stays quite similar or they always look original? Even if it's not stuff you would wear yourself.

Alexa Chung.

The two who immediately sprang to my mind are quite different but I think equally stylish.

I think Tilda Swinton looks beautifully, captivatingly, androgynously stylish and I also love how Nigella Lawson looks. I've met NL and she although she seems so - almost exaggeratedly - voluptuous she was, I would say, petite - her clothes have that vintage cut to them that create a beautiful, feminine shape.

Kate moss for casual wear
Also Emma Watson
I think Tilda Swindon always looks incredible
Helena Bonham Carter is in no way stylish but has incredible self confidence in her style

bingo - snap on Tilda

Vivienne Westwood
Katherine Hepburn
Heloise Letissier (Christine and the Queens)
Tilda Swinton
Miss Marple
Patti Smith
Leonard Cohen
Yoko Ono
Grace Kelly

Basically people who have (or had) a distinctive, signature look, which is ironic really as I change my own style a fair bit.

Bjork, Annie Lennox, Helen Mirren, Adele, Kirsty Young, Mariella Frostrup, Sue Perkins, Muriel Gray, Lauren Laverne, Sali Hughes, Vivienne Westwood, Michelle Obama.

It's their confidence, ability/talent and the fact I find them interesting. I've never found Kate Moss appealing in terms of her style because she doesn't seem interesting to me.

Floisme - great list. Patti Smith a great call - cool, stylish and captivating.

Floisme Mon 23-Jan-17 16:14:51

Yes I saw in her real life a few years ago and she looked great - photos don't do her justice at all. Very funny too!

Yes, I'd forgotten Tilda Swinton. She always looks incredible.

I like how Mel and Sue stuck to their style throughout the bake off series. There was no trying to 'glam' them up X factor/BGT female judge stylee.

Don't know some of the others (style wise) so will check them out. Thanks all.
