    Lucy Sykes Rellie is one of those people that we love to hate. First off, she's classy in a way that only cool British women can be, with a signature style that's all about mixing, say, Black Fleece blazers with bejeweled Judith Leiber minaudières. Then, there's her professional life, which includes consulting and creative directing for brands like Tommy Hilfiger and Ralph Lauren, designing her own, eponymous children's line, and serving as a stylist for such titles as Allure and Harper's Bazaar before becoming Fashion Director at Marie Claire.

Loathe: 0. Love: 1.
