Katie Holmes

IF ONLY SHE COULD ACT AS WELL AS SHE DRESSES. Katie Holmes is a fashion role model in the celebrity world. Apparently taste in clothes comes at the expense of taste in men.

Whether we love them or love to hate them, we cannot deny the influence celebrities have on our style â€" they inspire fashion trends. Now several celebrities have fashion labels of their own.

The women of The Hills
Last fall, The Hills girls adorned the cover of US Weekly’s Style Issue and their ability to turn heads is carrying through the winter and straight into spring. Lauren Conrad, Audrina Patridge, Whitney Port, and Heidi Montag have all earned their titles as fashion queens by consistently rocking the latest high-fashion trends.

Also, fans of the show get a peek into the hottest shops in Los Angeles and a chance to follow the happenings of Teen Vogue fashion magazine. If that’s not enough, Conrad recently launched her own clothing line this winter. Her fashion knowledge has earned her a top spot on our list of celebrity influences.

Katie Holmes
Katie Holmes may or may not have stolen our hearts during her Dawson’s Creek days, but she certainly has stolen our glances with her style. The media coverage of her marriage to Tom Cruise and the birth of baby Suri Cruise have kept Holmes in the spotlight. Whether she is wearing her favourite Armani designs or a variety of other top labels, she always looks great.

For a mini version of Katie Holmes, look no further than beautiful baby Suri, who never leaves home without her designer threads. A recent haircut even gave her a bob and bangs and now Suri and Katie look more like twins instead of mother and daughter.

Jessica Alba
Jessica Alba is another star who’s not letting pregnancy faze her. At the Oscars she wowed fashion experts with her long, flowing gown that oozed elegance and style. This classy and polished look was just one of many that embraces her baby bump while maintaining a wholesome image for fans everywhere.

America’s Next Top Model contestants
With Tyra Banks in control, fans of America’s Next Top Model not only view the latest clothing trends, but also the hottest hairstyles, accessories and makeup. With a variety of looks to work with, girls can determine what works best for their body type, hair colour or skin tone simply by recognizing which model most resembles themselves. As the models travel to popular fashion capitals and view the latest from top designers, they set the stage for a true fashion show.

Katherine Heigl
While she may be fairly new to the Hollywood scene, Katherine Heigl is proving herself to be a successful fashionista. Never lacking in accessories or shoes, she is becoming an important role model in the world of fashion. Her role on Grey’s Anatomy may have stopped her from wearing anything more than hospital scrubs, but off set she makes bold fashion statements.
