Like you, we take our sartorial inspirations pretty seriously. So, when it came to choosing our latest celebrity style stars, we paid close attention to the ladies that always look amazing minus the tell-tale signs of a cookie-cutter stylist. Lake, Kate, Dree, Diane, and Olivia—we're taking notes.
Dree Hemingway—The Rising Star
The Look: Watch out Erin Wasson, it looks like Alexander Wang has set his eyes on a new muse! Elite model Dree Hemingway is the latest It Girl to hit the fashion block. This former ballerina's style shines through in pieces that are pretty, practical, and layered—but still a little punk. Never one to be without a great blazer, Dree prefers neutrals, textured frocks, and sky-high heels for her statuesque frame. With Mariel Hemingway for a mom, Ernest Hemingway as a grandfather, and insanely good looks to boot, we predict we'll be seeing much more of this fresh-face and her street-wise style.

Lake Bell—The Minimalist
The Look:We'd like to think attending high school in Connecticut lent to Lake Bell's pared-down boy-meets-girl aesthetic. The stunning actress always infuses just the right dose of subdued sexiness into her sharp blazers, coats, and trousers, but always retains that ladylike composure. Not one to go overboard on makeup and hair, Lake proves it's the details that count: Immaculate tailoring, an understated clutch, and a personal charm necklace always do the trick.

Kate Bosworth—The American Beauty
The Look: Kate Bosworth's fashion sense has come a long way since her surfer style in 2002's Blue Crush. The fair-skinned actress's good looks even caught the attention of Chloé and Calvin Klein Jeans, the latter of which cast her in their recent campaign. Dressed up old Hollywood-style or down in breezy, off-beat separates, Kate always evokes an air of fresh sophistication. With her platinum hair and delicate features, she doesn't need much in the way of accessories save for a simple amazing bag and the perfect bold red lip. We should all be so lucky!

Diane Kruger—The Classic
The Look: Diane Kruger's got it at all. Acting chops, check. Handsome hottie Joshua Jackson, check. The attention of everyone's favorite fashion house Chanel, check. The German siren manages to juggle it all while managing to look effortlessly alluring. Favoring pretty high-waisted skirts, ultra-feminine cuts, relaxed florals, and bold hues, Diane channels a young Grace Kelly in a way that still seems smart and contemporary. Heck, she even makes harem pants look good! Photos via Style.com; Fabsugar.com; Style.com.

Olivia Palermo—The Uptown Girl
The Look: New York-based social Olivia Palermo has been working the party circuit for some time, but it wasn't until MTV's The City aired that people really started talking about the angel-faced newbie. Known as Whitney Port's devious co-worker at DVF, we suspect Olivia isn't as villainous as her character is made out to be. Wrongdoer or not, Olivia successfully mixes prim and proper Upper East Side with a touch of downtown—and her daring choice of colorful high-low accessories always keeps us guessing (in a good way).
