Crashing out on too much
Jenners? Had enough of the Hadid sisters for the day? Wishing your social feed was marginally less Markle-filled for a few hours? Yep, it happens to the best of us. Don’t get us wrong—we love dissecting the latest Kim Kardashian West outfit as much as the next person, but sometimes it’s necessary to widen your celebrity style coterie and discover some new fashion talent. Whether it’s the edgy dress offering of Humans actor Gemma Chan or the chic trouser suits of Naomie Harris (aka Miss Moneypenny), there are so many well-dressed celebs out there to get inspired by. They might not have Instagram followers in the millions, but what they do have is style in droves. Scroll down to discover the lesser-known celebs we’re looking to right now.

Style Notes: We’re more than a little bit jealous of actress Kiki Layne’s shimmering maxi skirt, which she wore to Dior’s couture show. In fact, we’ll take her whole wardrobe please.
Style Notes: We’ve been besotted with model and actress Dree Hemingway’s unique, punk-inspired style for years. She is officially the queen of high-low fashion.
Style Notes: Gemma Chan’s Prabal Gurung dress is all kinds of cool. We love the punkish mash-up of the two checked fabrics.
Style Notes: We’re jealous of Gemma’s minidress by cult fashion brand Vampire’s Wife. The trainers are a great urban addition to this ruffled floral frock.
Style Notes: Jenna Coleman’s dusty pink Frame trouser suit is giving us all the ’70s vibes, especially with those skyscraper platforms.
Style Notes: Here we have another enviable cult dress. This one is from Russian brand Vilshenko. We can’t get enough of those ruffled sleeves.
Style Notes: Letitia Wright, up-and-coming star of Black Panther, is a one to watch. She looked every inch the Hollywood starlet at the Avengers premiere in this space-age suit with tulle overlay.
Style Notes: A red bomber jacket, black jeans and hiking boots might seem like a simple combo, but as we all know, sometimes less is more. Letitia just looks beyond cool.
Style Notes: It was during her recent film tour that Lily James’s name cropped up yet again on our fashion radar. This Phillip Lim dress cleverly combines Cinderella-inspired blue with fashion-forward details.
Style Notes: The combination of ditsy florals and baby pink should look sickly sweet, but when rendered in striking, asymmetric cuts, it looks so chic.

Style Notes: Cult dress brand number three. This bold look from Batsheva ticks both the animal-print and prairie-dress boxes. It’s all we want to wear this autumn.
