UK’s Top Trendsetters

Cheryl Fernandez-Versini has been crowned the United Kingdom’s top trendsetter.

The ‘Crazy Stupid Love’ singer is at the top of the list of celebrity style icons British women turn to for inspiration while David Beckham topped the male list, according to research commissioned by as Milan Fashion Week draws to a close.

VoucherCodes lifestyle editor Anita Naik said: ”It’s interesting to see it’s the wholesome household names rather than the world’s sophisticated supermodels Brits are most likely to turn to for fashion inspiration.

”Brits are proud of our famous faces so it’s no surprise that a third of us seek to emulate celeb fashion looks, with the nation’s sweetheart Cheryl Fernandez-Versini and footballing legend Becks named the UK’s top trendsetters.”

Cheryl is followed closely by ‘We’re The Millers’ actress Jennifer Aniston in second place and, somewhat surprisingly, Dame Helen Mirren in third.

‘Loose Women’ panellist Myleene Klass was also deemed one of the top ten style icons, with Kelly Brook in fifth place followed by Pippa MiddletonVictoria BeckhamAlexa ChungYasmin Le Bon andJessie J.

Meanwhile, Victoria’s retired soccer star husband David was cited as the top style inspiration for men with Bradley Cooper coming in second and George Clooney in third.

Getting a family of six out the door on time can be quite a challenge -even when you’re a Beckham.

“With me and the boys, five minutes. With Harper, it’s a lot more of a process and obviously with Victoria,” said the former soccer star at an event for his fashion collaboration with British brand Belstaff. “You see her (Harper) every morning getting her clothes out for school or, you know, changing her mind like 20 times.”

The famous family has made a name in fashion with Victoria Beckham’s high-end collection, which showed on Sunday at New York Fashion Week, and sons Romeo, 12, and Brooklyn, 15, gracing magazine covers and Burberry ads. (The couple also has a nine-year-old son, Cruz.)

But it turns out that three-year-old Harper is the one calling the shots when it comes to Beckham’s personal style.

“She will come into my dressing room and she’ll be like, ‘Daddy, wear those shoes with those jeans.’ You know she’s got her own kind of mind and her own character already. So it’s great,” he said.

Beckham said he lent much more than his name to the six-piece capsule collection that includes leather motorcycle jackets ($1 950), a pair of distressed jeans ($395) and a classic, white T-shirt ($95).

“I have always been involved 110 percent,” Beckham said. “People know that it’s what I would wear and that’s why people have loved the collection the way they have.”


Nicki Minaj, who has recently dropped her colourful and oddball style for a more natural and sophisticated look, says it’s because she’s more comfortable in her skin.

“I kind of feel now that I look more like my regular old self, like what I look like when I’m at home,” she said in an interview on Tuesday. “I think there’s just a little bit more confidence and so I’m like, ‘It is what it is. I am who I am. I look like what I look like.’ I don’t really have to change much of it anymore.”

Minaj’s new look includes her natural black hair colour versus the wild and bright wigs she’s worn that helped establish her name in pop culture. At the Fashion Rocks concert on Tuesday in Brooklyn, New York, where the rapper performed, she wore a blazer and skirt that came off like a little black dress.

“I just thought it was really, really sexy, but without being tight,” she said. “I thought it was different for me
