Top 5 Fictional Television Trendsetters: Women Edition
From the beginning of television, trendsetting has become part of it. After all, fashion and television is a perfect match. Everybody wants to be somebody. The hair, shoes, clothes bags and even the lifestyle of celebrities are being followed and copied by everyone. Here are the top five fictional trendsetters of television.
Blair Waldorf of Gossip Girl
She spends more time on clothing and accessories for a single appearance than most of us spend in a year. The most noticeable trend she created in the television show, Gossip Girl was headbands. Retro-plastic at times but satin-wrapped and sporting bows as well. Before her character in the show, bulky headbands were a thing from the 90’s. But pair it up with mini dresses and four inch-heels and you’ll get the school girl-chic look!
Victoria Grayson of Revenge
Her power of seduction and manipulation matches the color of her wardrobe. From deep red to bold black dresses, Victoria Grayson became a style icon. Her character in the show is always seen running an event in the Hamptons. Gone are the days of over accessories. Victoria Grayson’s style is a simple and plain dress cut with flowing hair and simple make-up, the true definition of class.
Carrie Bradshaw of Sex and the City
Before, women tend to match their handbags to their shoes. That changed when Carrie Bradshaw entered the limelight and matching was so 1994. During the series, Carrie was seen to match clothes and handbags inappropriately but it works! Manolo Blahnik, her favorite shoe designer even became a household name. I’m sure at some point, you emulate yourself as her!
Rachel Green from Friends
Rachel Green portrayed by Jennifer Aniston was so hit that women started walking into salons asking for “The Rachel”. She wore a layered, face-framing, smooth and straight cut hair that really hit women of all ages! She was one of those intentionally fashionable characters with a shopping problem. Rachel really made a difference not just in fashion but to women’s wit as well.
Elena Gilbert/ Katherine Pierce of The Vampire Diaries
Nina Dobrev not only showed her acting prowess but her fashion sense as well. Elena Gilbert’s fashion is all about dapping. Layers of cute sleeveless paired with sneaker boots is her signature. On the other hand, the fierce Katherine Pierce never goes out without her high boots, dark blouses, wavy flowing hair and dark skinny pants.
