6 Celebrities That Are Really Good at Shopping (And What They're Wearing)

I get the impression that the majority of actors, musicians, models, and athletes don't necessarily set out to become famous style icons, but this is oftentimes what ends up happening. Some celebrities have a great eye of their own and some are armed with stylists that understand what they'll feel most confident in, and even will shop for street style outfits with or for them. I think that the past 11 months have been quite indicative of celebrities' affinity for fashion. Without events to attend and non-Zoom press to do, they're undoubtedly using their stylists less, and probably have more time to do some shopping of their own.

A handful of celebs have really stood out for their excellent street style lately, and I think it's safe to assume that they are indeed really good at shopping. So in case you want some fresh ideas as to what to buy, based on what these shopping-proficient celebs are wearing, keep scrolling to do just that.


Rihanna sightings are sort of few and far between these days, but whenever she does step out (usually at night), she never disappoints. And given that she has a fashion empire of her own in Fenty, it's safe to assume that she probably chooses her own looks, which are often a mix of comfortable pieces with statement accessories and outerwear.

Hailey Bieber

Aside from the face masks, you wouldn't know that it was a pandemic based on Hailey Bieber's wardrobe. (Shout-out to her stylist and friend Maeve Reilly.) Bieber will really inspire you to get out of the sweats, and when she does wear sweats, she always makes them look surprisingly cool.

Mindy Kaling

If you're not following Mindy Kaling on Instagram, you're missing out. Kaling is clearly a huge fan of fashion, and the brightly colored outfits she wears are sure to bring a smile to your face.

Elsa Hosk

If I had to choose, I'd say that Elsa Hosk is one of the most stylish models of our time (as in, top three), and that's saying a lot. She always gets her hands on the very latest It items and provides endless outfit inspiration that I personally take note of.

Dua Lipa

I personally don't think Dua Lipa gets enough credit for her style. She never phones it in yet gives us something to talk about with every look that the paparazzi captures or that she posts on Instagram. She favors bold looks with a big dose of the '90s. She's not one to just wear what everyone else is wearing.

Katie Holmes

If the number of Katie Holmes outfits we posted about here on Who What Wear are any indication, she's had a very chic year. Her style is accessible and wearable, yet aspirational, and she's not afraid to try "controversial" trends.
