A post shared by Leandra (Medine) Cohen (@leandramcohen) on


Leandra (Medine) Cohen is a writer and designer known for starting her successful and niche fashion blog, Man Repeller. Cohen subscribes to a staunch “just because” policy when approaching her personal style, meaning there are a lot of accessories, pattern clashing and silk pajama sets involved. Cohen did a brief stint as a shoe designer, and has now transitioned into designing accessories under her Man Repeller brand. Her Instagram is the perfect combination of crazy, often weather-inappropriate, outfits and pictures of her cute twin toddlers.

Tracee Ellis Ross

The daughter of Diana Ross, Tracee Ellis Ross rose to fame as an actress for her work on the hit comedies Girlfriends and Black-ish. She first started making fashion headlines in 2018 after she hosted the American Music Awards. Not only did she make 12 intricate and attention-grabbing outfit changes, but she also had all 12 ensembles made by black fashion designers. Ross is an outspoken supporter of the Black Lives Matter movement and frequently uses her Instagram to promote social and political change. She’s known for her bold colors and unusual silhouettes on the red carpet.

A post shared by Poppy (@impoppy) on


Poppy‘s career has taken her from YouTube star, to singer, to fashion model and back again. She has walked for names as big as Viktor & Rolf, and tends to utilize a similar couture look in her personal style. She began her career singing covers on YouTube and has since released two studio-length albums and has completed a tour throughout North America and Europe for her second album, Am I a Girl? Her YouTube channel, for which she has won several awards, is a combination of promotional videos, skits and miniseries about her life. Her most recent project is a graphic novel titled Genesis 1.

Gemma Chan


Actress Gemma Chan (who we featured in our GirlPower Issue) tends to approach the red carpet armed with bright colors and grand dresses. The London-based actress began her career as a fashion model after competing in the British reality series, Project Catwalk. She then made her mark with supporting roles in several movies and BBC drama series. Her breakout role came in the 2018 hit film Crazy Rich Asians, for which she received widespread recognition and critical acclaim. She has since been in major box office films like Captain Marvel and Mary Queen of Scots. While slightly more reserved in her personal style, Chan provides both bold and casual outfit inspiration through her Instagram.

Rosalía


Rosalía is a popular Spanish singer frequently dressed in bright “athleisure” and coordinating ensembles, like matching Louis Vuitton track suits, giving her a distinctly young and bold approach to street style. At only 25-years-old, Rosalía has been around the music scene for nearly a decade and puts her own unique spin on modern flamenco music, or flamenco pop. Both her first and second studio albums received widespread social media and critical acclaim, and she recently announced an upcoming collaboration with American singer-songwriter Billie Eilish.
