London’s best dressed celebrities

Here are the London celebs who are causing a commotion among fashionistas with their stylish dressing.

London Focus

Every publication worth its salt has published at least one “best dressed” list, so over at AiL Towers we thought we’ve have a stab at our own. These are the London celebs who are causing a commotion among fashionistas with their stylish dressing.

Kate Moss
An obvious choice, but Kate Moss looks cool whether she’s falling out of a party having ripped her vintage gown or traipsing around Primrose Hill with bedraggled hair and wearing regulation skinny jeans. In fact, she could probably wear a bin liner and find a way of making it look edgy. It’s hard to pick just one look of hers, but if pushed it’d be a toss-up between her pioneering festival uniform of mini-dress and wellies and her shimmering 30th birthday “the Beautiful and the Damned” costume.

Jamie Hince
Just don’t call him Mr Moss. He acquired a loyal fanbase and critical acclaim while in indie rock band the Kills alongside Alison Mosshart, but since dating la Moss his every move has been scrutinised by the media, whether he’s doing a spot of shopping in Chelsea or holidaying on a cruise ship off the south of France. Just as well he’s got an eye for savvy tailoring, in particular double breasted jackets paired with super tight trousers.

Stella McCartney
There is no better advert for her label as she is only ever spotted wearing her own designs. McCartney is not ashamed to admit having famous parents was a great help when establishing her career – after all, her graduation collected was modelled by friends Kate Moss, Naomi Campbell and Yasmin Le Bon for free. Her designs are feminine and wearable, which goes some way toward explaining her collections for Adidas and H&M. She is just as likely to be seen in a smart jumpsuit as a sleek two-piece suit (like the Wallis Simpson-inspired outfit she wore to collect her OBE, with edges so sharp they could take an eye out), always accessorised with killer heels of course. \n\nRoksanda Ilincic
Another fashion designer frequently lauded for her dress sense is Roksanda llincic (you’d think that give their line of work there’d be more, but just look at Donatella Versace). The former model cuts a dramatic figure with her pale skin, dark long hair and a penchant for bright red lipstick; her trademark is using bold blocks of colour, both in her designs and her personal dress sense. Most recently she won the 2013 Elle Style Award for Red Carpet Fashion.

Samantha Cameron
Sam Cam is, without a doubt, the best dressed First Lady the UK has ever had. Consultant to luxury brand Smythson as well as ambassador for the British Fashion Council, due to her husband’s career she has a duty to support British designers, something she does with aplomb: an Osman Yousefzada gown here, an Anya Hindmarch jacket there. For red carpet events she pulls off womanly sophistication without ever flashing any flesh; she is the Prime Minister’s wife after all.

Benedict Cumberbatch
His career is going from strength to strength, and his sartorial choices are earning him spots on more and more best dressed lists. The Harrow-educated actor has an impeccable sense of style, from the skinny ties he favours down to his shiny black loafers. But some of his more outlandish choices are not as well-received, as evidenced by What are you wearing, Benedict? - a blog dedicated to his fashion mishaps.

Alexa Chung
Fashion pack darling Alexa Chung is a tastemaker; the former model turned TV presenter turned style icon has even had a Mulberry bag named after her. A regular on best dressed lists, fashion show front rows and magazine covers, she marries high fashion pieces with vintage and high street, giving her a grungy yet ultimately very smart aesthetic. She has won the British Style award at the British Fashion Awards every year since its inception in 2010.

David Gandy
The Dolce & Gabbana model turned occasional motoring journalist is frequently pictured at starry events, only for his clothing to be analysed in detail by the press. Old school tweeds and checks are preferred, along with brogues and double breasted coats. In short, he’s a very British gentleman.
\n\nPixie Geldof
Say what you will about Bob Geldof’s offspring, but Pixie has reinvented herself as something of a style icon of late. She’s replaced the eccentric (and let’s face it, sometimes downright disastrous) choices with grown up eveningwear, but is still not afraid to push boundaries with modish dresses and her trademark gamine crop. Her new BFFs are Nick Grimshaw and girl-of-the-moment Cara Delevingne, both darlings of the fashion set themselves, and who have certainly had a hand in influencing her new look.

Tinie Tempah
Tinie Tempah is frequently spotted on the front row of LFW, always dressed in a sharply cut suit and his trademark oversized specs. It’s a far cry from growing up on the Aylesbury Estate in Walworth, labelled “hell’s waiting room” by the press. After achieving commercial success with his music, his blend of preppy and urban chic have earned him fashionista status.

The Beckhams
We list the Beckham clan here as a unit, as they’ve been voted the world’s most stylish family (in a survey carried out by a betting website, but bear with us). Former Spice Girl Victoria’s career as a fashion designer is flourishing, and she now shows at the prestigious New York Fashion Week. Hubby David has long been a poster boy for the metrosexual look, as well as starring in advertising campaigns for H&M and Armani briefs. And their brood are now following in their footsteps, with 11 year old Romeo, their second eldest son, now the young face of Burberry. Being one of the richest couples in Britain must help with buying clothes too.
