IN THE PAST 15 YEARS, THIS MOTLEY CREW OF FASHION AND BEAUTY ICONS PUSHED BOUNDARIES, BROKE RULES AND TAUGHT US EVERYTHING THERE IS TO KNOW ABOUT GOING YOUR OWN WAY. #FEARLESS
From left: AMY WINEHOUSE This English singer brought back the beehive big time. Her ’60s-esque bouffant, dramatic winged eyeliner and brightly coloured hair accessories became as iconic as her unforgettable voice. OLIVIER ROUSTEING The 30-yearold creative director for Balmain is a selfie-slinging (check out his pout) powerhouse who counts Kim K. and Kanye West as BFFs. LEA T As the face of Redken, this Brazilian transgender model—she is Givenchy creative director Riccardo Tisci’s friend and muse—is one of the first to represent a major beauty brand. STELLA MCCARTNEY The animal-rights activist and environmentalist pioneered vegan luxury fashion. TOM FORD He is guilty of bringing sexy back to Gucci during his tenure (pubic-hair monogramming, anyone?) before launching his eponymous label in 2005, which is as crush-worthy as the man himself. JANELLE MONÁE Known for her modern take on the pompadour-style updo and dressing in only black and white. “The colours come out in your music, the colours come out in your personality, the colours come out in performance,” she told us in 2013. LADY GAGA Meat dress. Prosthetic horns. Ever changing. TILDA SWINTON The award-winning actress is a beauty and fashion muse for her gender-bending look and for refusing to be anything other than herself. ALEXANDER MCQUEEN The boundary-pushing designer brought performativity to the runway and theatricality to our closets. KATE MOSS Gave new meaning to off-duty-model style with her signature laissez-faire attitude and slept-in eyeliner.
