Ones To Watch: 5 Fashionistas To Look Out For in 2014
By Faith

We’re in the midst of wrapping up our Best of 2013 posts, but it’s the time of year when we single out some fashionistas who made their mark in the past twelve months and will certainly make even bigger statements in 2014. Not all of them are new to the scene, but they’ve certainly made lasting impressions this year.

Here are some of our picks:

1. Kat Graham


Swiss-born actress Kat Graham has been acting since she was thirteen, but she became a household name in 2009 when she burst onto the scene as character Bonnie Bennett on The Vampire Diaries. She really took some fashion risks this year with new shorter hairstyles and a slew of sensual, high-fashion looks.


She hit the Cannes Film Festival, was featured in Glamour’s June issue as one of the next big things, and she launched her singing career.


2014 will undoubtedly bring more music, television and film appearances, some front row sightings, and perhaps a fast-fashion collaboration. Either way, Kat’s quirky sense of style is sure to have more high-fashion brands clamoring to dress her, expanding her sartorial arsenal from the Versace and vintage pieces she gravitated toward in 2013.


We can’t wait to see what she has in store!

2. Sevyn Streeter

Songstress and songwriter Sevyn Streeter captivated us all this year with her debut EP Call Me Crazy, But, as well as her stylish looks at television appearances, fashionable fêtes, and award shows. Sevyn also racked up some songwriting cred by penning hit singles The Way by Ariana Grande and Fine China by Chris Brown. Not bad huh?

She dazzled in 2013 in brands including Givenchy, Giuseppe Zanotti, 3.1 Phillip Lim, Blumarine, and so many more.


With 2014 comes a slew of award shows, new music, and naturally, the chance to sport more and more designer duds.

I’d love to see Sevyn try more looks like the Balmain mini-dress she wore this year and to hopefully sit front row at some shows during Fall 2014 fashion month.

3. Jamie Chung


Jamie Chung has come a long way from her 2004 stint on The Real World: San Diego! The Korean-American beauty hit the red carpet numerous times this year, promoting her hit film The Hangover Part III.


Her casual style, Instagram outfit snaps, and blog gained her a new legion of fans with almost 200K Instagram followers and nearly 100K on Twitter.


Jamie loves to mix high and low and has opted for pieces from ASOS, RVN, BCBGMAXAXRIA, and Cushnie et Ochs this year.


She’s starring in the next Sin City flick which will be released next year. With it will come worldwide premieres, photocalls, and perhaps an editorial spread or two.



Jamie definitely has a bright future in acting and fashion and we cannot wait to see how both of those worlds collide for her in the new year.

4. Angela Simmons


Angela Simmons is hip hop royalty, but she is slowly yet surely rising in the fashion ranks as well.

She was a front row mainstay at New York Fashion Week this year, dazzling in looks that echoed her fashion prowess.


Angela even staged her own Angela I Am runway show for Spring 2014 NYFW, as well as launching her website. By Angela Simmons At STYLE360 By Angela Simmons At STYLE360

Along with her love for brands including Brian Atwood, Azzedine Alaïa, Zara, and more, she’s also changed her ‘do quite a bit, from a long bob to waist-length box braids.

Her stint on 106 & Park gave her a chance to try out the trends for an entirely new audience.



Angela also became an Instagram sensation, taking to the social medium in both designers new and mainstream.

Claire even sat down with Ms. Simmons for her new Cocktails with Claire segment.

We’ll definitely be watching Angela and what looks she’s sporting in 2014!

5. Nicole Scherzinger


Nicole Scherzinger could not be stopped this year! The X-Factor UK judge took to our TV screens each week in the most glamorous of gowns, though also making a statement while off-duty.


The beauty garnered a number of editorial features, being included on the cover of Glamour UK and within the pages of Notion Magazine.



Nicole repped both fast fashion and luxury brands, donning ensembles from Missguided, Hervé Léger, Finders Keepers, and more.



She racked up a few awards and 2013 saw Nicole named as the Harvard Foundation Artist of the Year, the Global Gift Philantropist, the Glamour Awards TV Personality of the Year, and the Cosmopolitan TV Personality of the Year.



Nicole will be working on her second album next year and there are also rumblings of a possible clothing line and a leading role on Broadway.

    Nice post and I am digging Nicole and Angela’s styles the most.

  2. Anonymous says:

    Nicole and Kat are on my list!

    I’m getting kind of tired of Angela and Jaime always looks good.

  3. Niksocool says:

    Not really a star. But I dig Olivia Palermo’s fashions

  4. Biyonsay says:

    NICOLE and definitely KAT.

    Angela has been trying to be a fashionista for years, tired of her.

  5. Jihan says:

    had no idea sevyn wrote Fine china. A big chune dat!

  6. Chic Noir says:

    i can MAYBE see the others on the list (especially jamie), but are people really digging this sevyn streeter chick fashion-wise? she’s like a cheap knockoff of kelly rowland…and that’s not saying much. the only fashionista i’m looking out for next year is lupita (and of course nicole richie who is a veteran at this point)!

  7. Crystal says:

    Nicole slayed every look but she’s been on the scene for a long time for us to be watching out for her in 2014.

    Y’all can sleep on Sevyn if you want to. Not so much worried about her fashion next year but I’m watching to see if she shuts down the music game.

  8. DannielleS says:

    Nicole has always been on point.

    Angela has always been pushing fashion.

    Kat is improving immensely.

    Jaime is cute.

    Sevyn cannot dress and her makeup is atrocious.

  9. Manny says:

    Kat improved immensely
    Sevyn?!…where’s Alicia from E!

  10. Anonymous says:

    Alicia from E! Is beautiful but her clothes never fit. Kat looks like Ciara.

    Nicole and Kat definitely! Angela tries to hard in my opinion, but I respect her hustle. #werq

  13. CMW says:

    I second DannielleS. Nicole killed it this year. Angela tries too hard (and so does Solange IMO). Lupita Nyong’o for 2014 – her press tour has been one flawless look after another.

  14. FLEE says:

    Um NO! to Sevyn.. and Angela does too much at time for the most part she usually looks well put together.

  15. Anonymous says:

    Sevyn…no, girl.

    Angela has also been “in the game” for awhile like Nicole. I’m no longer checking for them as newcomers to the seen. And Angela seems to have more misses than hits when it counts.

    And why isn’t Lupita on this list?

  16. Jinandjuice says:

    Booooo! Sevyn Streeter is killing nothing!

  17. Holly Jae says:

    Even though I am getting a little tired of Angela, her style in undeniable! Jamie is conservatively stylish and a breath of fresh air. Sevyn, hmmm not a huge fan, but the green dress was a success. Kat Graham…enough said ♡♡♡.

  18. MAC says:

    Angela is already top notch and little Miss Kat will bring the reign in 2014. I see it now.

  19. Adara says:

    Does anyone no where Angela’s red and black dress, that she’s wearing on the cover photo for this post is from? I love it!
