As one of the biggest fashion risk takers of our generation, this singer is one of the few that is as iconic on stage as she is off. Whether its her hair that she's making a statement with or a provocative dress, Rihanna can pull off anything. She's never shy about it and always looks comfortable in her skin.

Kendall Jenner

This member of the Kardashian clan has only recently been forming her own path and career. Such a sexy and on-trend style from a 19-year-old is surprising, but this style maturity is sure to only grow with time. She was all over last seasons' runway, and we think she may just have the connections and the talent to become a huge name in modeling some day soon.

Chloe Sevigny

Love her or hate her, you have to admit that her look is here to stay. She's another one who loves to perform in outlandish outfits, but blurs the line between what's performance wear and what's everyday wear. We predict she'll be turning heads and setting trends for years to come.

Like Chloe Sevigny, this "it girl" knows how to dress. Her style is consistently current and chic. She's trendy, but seems to pave the way with the trend before the world tries it themselves. Her constant attendance to fashion events and occasional designing has kept her foot in the door of fashion since 2008.

Ashley Olsen

The Oslen Twins have been synonymous with the fashion industry for the last five years, because their style is unlike anyone else's. Ashley's look is always more refined and sharp than her sisters, but rarely without black and rarely body conscious.

Mary-Kate has mastered frumpy-chic like no one has ever done before. You rarely see her beauty overdone or her outfits abiding by any current trends. She loves to layer and tasks more risks with vintage and oversized pieces than her sister.

We must admit that her participation in Gossip Girl does give her a leg up on several others. The show's style and especially her character, Serena Vanderwoodsten, were pivotal to our generation's style. Blake herself is an all-American girl who embraces her femininity in her style.

This blogger behind "The Man Repeller" has been a huge part of the industry for many reasons. She's a talented and hilarious writer and believer in the art of fashion. She writes about how she doesn't take it too seriously, and loves the quirkiest trends. Her outfits are always outlandish and often include layering, but always look one of a kind.

Like Sofia, Alexa has a grace and charm about her that has made her irreplaceable in the industry. She is very sure of herself and her style. She goes between entirely feminine looks and androgynous ones, but never incorporates trends unless they distinctly fit her style.

Cara Delevingne

With her current popularity that's only just begun, we believe Cara is the supermodel of our era. She's the Kate Moss/Naomi Campbell that'll be a household name forever. Even without her talent in modeling, her off-duty style is this rocker cool that hasn't been pulled off this well in decades.
