There are brand new names, red carpet vets who have seriously upped their style game and the familiar last names of newbies from Hollywood’s most famous families. They’re the ladies who had a strong fashion showing in 2015 and will likely take 2016 next-level, sartorially speaking. Meet your icons-in-the-making.
She goes from Altuzarra to a crop top with ease and boasts an Instagram following of 4.2 million followers. Already a well-known name in the fashion scene (Marc Jacobs cast her on his runway and in his campaign), Ratajkowski’s style star is just going to get brighter.
The breakout actress of the new Star Wars can rock custom Chloé with cred and has a cult franchise on her hands. Get used to this new red carpet face.

This actress has Oscar buzz and a host of Louis Vuitton and Dolce & Gabbana looks, making her primed to align with brands in a bigger way in 2016.
Ciara has been on the scene for years, but 2015, with its host of sultry looks by Elie Saab, Reem Acra and Nili Lotan, has served as a break out for this stunning songstress.
This Indian beauty is 2015’s version of a movie star—the television star. Already a huge name in India, Chopra has only begun her US takeover.
It girls don’t just come from Hollywood—New York ladies can easily climb the ranks. The London transplant is an artist-model with a penchant for statement looks and a dance card ready to be filled.
We’ve championed the meteoric fashion rise of Gomez on this site all year long. With her Marc Jacobs, Derek Rose and Ulyana Sergeenko ensembles, Gomez has entered the style stratosphere and we don’t see her coming back down anytime soon.
