If you think all it takes to become a fashion personality is a few thousand followers on Twitter and a credit line at Barneys, think again. To be considered a personality, you've got to have personality. That's got to manifest itself not only in social media, but also in the clothes you put on, the way you run your business, how you lay out your editorials, the photos you snap, and the influence you have on the fashion industry.
Of course, an inimitable sense of style doesn't hurt either. We enlisted the help of illustrator Joana Avillez to draw up the influencers who we consider the biggest-hitting fashion personalities today, and show us what makes them as unique, recognizable, and well, illustrious, as they are.
