Nicole Kidman. Jennifer Lopez. Beyonce. Jessica Simpson. Great talents, great dressers, but are they trend setters or trend followers?

Today, all of these women are featured every month in fashion and tabloid mags for their relentless taste and style. But once upon a time, they were bad dressers too. Jessica and Beyonce used to overdo their hair and make up, and Nicole was a frizzy plain Jane from down under. Even fashion aficionado’s like Paris Hilton took years in the spotlight to turn from drag queen to demure. Through the magic of fame and a stylist, they have all been transformed into elegant examples for us all. But not without a little help from their friends.

But wait what about those natural born trend setters? Mary Kate and Ashley fell out of the womb in style, and Sienna Miller has been setting trends for us since learned her name. Even Lyndsay Lohan has always been one step ahead of the game in fashion and accessories.

Who do you think is the best trend setter of all time? Who is the best dressed fashion follower? Blog in, rant and let us know who you think is inventive and innovative, or which star is just a fashion follower.

    I totally agree with the article. Beyonce looks like crap a majority of the time…and in those few instances when she look decent it’s just medicore. Lindsay, Mary Kate, & Ashley are totally trendsetters. They always look nice and fashionable. It also just seems effortless…like they were born with a superb sense of style. Nicole Richie & Rachel Bilson also should be added to the list of trendsetters.
