Mindy Kaling
You may remember Mindy from all the controversy with her black and white February Elle cover or maybe you read her book, caught a few episodes of The Mindy Project, or you're just a diehard fan like us. She's got style, sass, and most recently acquired a lovely set of summer bangs. And if you're not following her Instagram already, you may want to start because she's seriously the epitome of funny girl cool.

Sasha Pivovarova
Sasha is not only a model, painter, stylist, wife, and mom, but modern day Super Woman with a killer wardrobe to prove it. As of late she's been the face of Free People's January catalog which was shot in the whimsical model's home and even showcases some of her artwork. Together with artist/photographer husband, Igor Vishnyakov, the two have created a super inventive life, adorable family, and chic Williamsburg loft, causing envy among us all.

Pharrell Williams
Whether he's wearing that infamous vintage Vivianne Westwood hat or dropping a new album entitled "G I R L", there's a reason why Pharell's been so "Happy" lately. The multi-talented singer is making some moves onto the fashion scene with two upcoming collaborations. His much awaited men's and women's t-shirt collection for Uniqlo, "i am OTHER," is set to hit stores and online on April 24th. The musician now turned designer is also debuting a collection with Adidas Originals using eco-friendly Bionic yarn which is expected to launch this summer.

Brooklyn and Romeo Beckham
It wouldn't be a list of who's who without mentioning a Beckham and this one's featuring two, as both eldest sons make their modeling debuts. Ten-year-old Romeo is Burberry's latest billboard star while 15-year-old Brooklyn graces the cover of Man About Town magazine. With charming looks, power couple parents and four adorable children, the Beckham's just may be aiming for world domination.

Lupita Nyong'o
Well she's already won an Oscar for her role in 12 Years A Slave and now this girl's landed her first beauty campaign as the new face of Lancôme. Her flawless beauty and dynamite red carpet looks have her on everyone's radar as a "Global Fashion Icon." It's also been rumored that she's dating Jared Leto and they've been seen side by side all the way from LA to Paris.

Olivier Rousteing
He's sat at the helm of Balmain as Creative Director since 2011 and helped give the fashion house its edgy, Baroque inspired flair. Now at 27, Olivier who quit a former international law career to follow his passion, continues to blur the lines between haute couture and ready-to-wear. With fans like Kayne, Prince, and even Rihanna who starred in Balmain's Spring 2014 campaign and is now up for her own CFDA Fashion Icon Award, the label evokes more than just fashion but art and architectural inspired designs.

Shailene Woodley
And the best dressed award goes to... Shailene Woodley who has quickly become the "It" girl of the red carpet. She first caught people's attention after her roles in The Secret Life of the American Teenager, The OC, and most recently The Descendants. We've seen her at the top of best dressed lists since 2011 wearing the likes of Dior, Valentino, Calvin Klein, Prabal Gurung, Christopher Kane, Jason Wu, and Dolce & Gabbana.

  1. You should take a look at the Pharrell Williams imagery and promotional material for Montcler from last winter if you haven't seen it. The quality of imagery is exceptional and a fantastic link up of brands.
