2. Kate Lanphear
Occupation: Style Director at Elle
Kate may hail from Virginia, but this southern belle's style feels as though she was born on the runways of Bryant Park. She's striking looks, a slim figure, a signature blonde haircut, and a towering height. If you didn't know any better, you might mistake her for being just a model — but she's much more than that, honey. This girl's fashion resume runs deep — so deep that it puts most others' work to sleep. From working at the Australian Vogue and Harper's Bazaar, Lanphear is making waves in her current position at Elle. Her own flawless personal style of androgynous glamour has not only started trends, but also created a cult following.
