Fashion Week brings the style elite out in high-heeled droves, but each year there are certain celebs we always keep an eye out for. These sophisticated ladies never fail to steal the fashion spotlight.

Whether she’s rocking mustard-yellow leather at a Gucci show or looking fun and flirty in a pastel gown for Chanel, Gossip Girl alum Blake Lively always looks white hot. The fact that she often has hunky hubby Ryan Reynolds in tow? Well, that’s just icing on the cake.
2. Diane Kruger

A mainstay in Fashion Week’s front row, Diane Kruger is that girl who always manages to look completely polished yet totally effortless all at once. She’s got that New York street-chic style down to an art form.
3. Zoe Saldana

Zoe Saldana’s Fashion Week ensembles are always modern, hip and fit her flawlessly. We adore the way she uses accessories to marry easygoing and elegant. Doesn’t she seem like she’d be a blast to sit next to and size up styles with?
4. Alexa Chung

When it comes to stylemakers, all eyes are on Alexa Chung. And for good reason — this chick isn’t afraid of any fashion, and it pays off. She is a master at proving that you have to give different shapes, silhouettes and patterns a try before ruling them out.
5. Anna Kendrick

We’re drawn to Anna Kendrick during Fashion Week because she’s the epitome of the everygirl. She wears sleek, well-tailored dresses to attend shows, but she punches up the interest with thoughtful details. Think a leather jacket, neon leopard-print heels and hot pink lips.
6. Lauren Conrad

Is it really any wonder that Lauren Conrad always catches our eye? This fashion darling has built her life around the style industry. We are still obsessed with the adorable floral Alice + Olivia dress (above right) she wore to the designer’s show during Fashion Week in 2012 — not to mention that chic sequined Jenny Packham number (above center).
8. Hailee Steinfeld

Sure, Hailee Steinfeld is a newcomer to the fashion scene at only 17 years old. But this fashion-forward teen has certainly proven her style savvy over the last few years. Our favorite part? Her Fashion Week ensembles never seem like she’s trying too hard — the fearless way she plays with color shows she’s having fun with her age.
9. Olivia Palermo

While we can’t say we were ever huge fans of Olivia Palermo’s personality when she starred alongside Whitney Port in the short-lived reality series The City, we sure can’t find fault in the girl’s style. Not at all. She is a fashion show staple these days, and half the time, we find we’re more interested in what she’s wearing than the models.

We’re not the only ones who think pretty Zendaya Coleman boasts some envious fashion know-how — at the 2014 Teen Choice Awards, she won the Candie’s Choice Style Icon Award. Last year, she created quite the buzz during Fashion Week with her bold and funky ensembles, so we can’t wait to see what she’ll strut this year.
