Just like women swooning over heartthrobs such as the four Chrises: Chris Hemsworth, Chris Evans, Chris Pine, and Chris Pratt—so do men admire beautiful female celebrities. Ask any guy who their celebrity crushes are and you’ll notice one thing they all have in common: their female celebrity crushes are the kinds of girls who are beautiful in a down-to-earth way. When we talk of crushes here, we mean those celebrities that they can liken to girls they date or girls they find attractive. That’s not to say that they want their girls to become like these celebrities. It just means they admire these celebrities greatly.
The nitty-gritty of what goes into a woman’s outfit may be of no consequence to a man, but the overall look and aura she projects is everything. And while it’s next to impossible to look Hollywood-perfect, men don’t really expect their girls to strive for that unattainable standard. But there are certain female celebrities they admire in terms of their overall appearance and maybe secretly wish their girlfriends would emulate (not imitate) in terms of street style.
15. Miranda Kerr
Men and women alike find Australian supermodel Miranda Kerr gorgeous because she’s a delightful contrast of sexy and girl-next-door. Her youthful, angelic face and trademark dimples give that youthful, innocent look. It’s in complete contrast to her near-perfect body, which isn’t too skinny nor too big. As a result, Kerr is blessed with genes that make her look good wearing anything. She has modeled for some of the world’s biggest brands and became the official endorser for cosmetic brand Maybelline New York, which eventually led to her stint as a Victoria’s Secret Angel, replacing fellow supermodel Gisele Bundchen. Despite her seemingly very glamorous lifestyle, at the end of the day, Kerr is a mom to her and ex-husband’s Orlando Bloom’s son. So her style is very relaxed, yet chic. She wears tight tank tops with skinny jeans and sneakers or flowy skirts with midriff tops and leather sandals. She never comes across looking indecent, no matter how much skin she bares in her casual outfits.
14. Jessica Alba
Whenever a list of top sexiest women or most beautiful women in the world appears in the media, Jessica Alba is almost always included. She’s one of the few child stars that have successfully transitioned from kiddie roles to teenage roles to full-fledged adult characters, though she hasn’t been too active in movies as of late. She landed her breakthrough role as the lead for the TV series Dark Angel and she went on to appearing in big films like Sin City, Fantastic Four, and Into The Blue. These days, though, she’s busy with the business she put together. Alba co-founded The Honest Company, a consumer goods company that sells environment-friendly products for the home and for kids. Since she’s a mother of two, her street style is very relaxed. She’s often seen in baggy jeans and button-down shirts, but when she’s at the beach, she totally rocks a bikini with her toned stomach, arms, and legs.
13. Brie Larson
She can easily be considered today’s “it girl” in Hollywood, following in the footsteps of the likes of Julia Roberts in the ‘90s or Jennifer Lawrence in the late 2000s. Brie Larson started acting in films as a teenager, when she appeared in small roles in Thirteen Going on Thirty, Sleepover, and Scott Pilgrim Vs. The World. She garnered critical acclaim for the first time in the independent film Short Term 12 in 2013, but she didn’t really come onto the radar until she was nominated for multiple awards for her lead role in the drama Room. For that role, she won the much-coveted Academy Award, as well as a Golden Globe Award, and a Screen Actors’ Guild Award. She also slayed it on the red carpet, showing off her lithe body in that gold cut-out dress in the Golden Globes and the very sweet blue dress she wore to the Oscars. She was recently introduced as the actress chosen to play Captain Marvel in Marvel’s latest big movie.
12. Nina Dobrev
How many men (and women!) were heartbroken when they found out Nina Dobrev was dating her then The Vampire Diaries co-star Ian Somerhalder and how her admirers (secretly) rejoiced when they broke up and she was declared single again. The Bulgarian-Canadian beauty got her start like many Canadian actors of her generation: in the Canadian TV show Degrassi: The Next Generation. But she didn’t become Hollywood famous until she took on the role of Elena Gilbert on The Vampire Diaries. Her popularity soared to even greater heights when she got together with leading man Somerhalder. Even though she’s no longer part of the show, she has spread her wings to bigger things like movies. Dobrev has always given off that girl-next-door vibe and her fashion sense is always on point. She loves soft, floral prints and knee-length dresses, which show off just the right amount of leg to look great.
11. Jennifer Aniston
Among all the actors in the hit TV sitcom Friends, it is probably Jennifer Aniston who has enjoyed the most success. Her character Rachel Green stood out as the most endearing in the show and for her portrayal of the heiress-turned-career-girl, she has won all three major awards in TV for lead actress: an Emmy, a Golden Globe, and a Screen Actors’ Guild Award. Ever since she burst into the entertainment scene, Aniston has been regarded as a fashion icon. Her layered, blunted hairstyle in the mid-90s was a phenomenon and girls all over the world copied the look. She’s the type of person who carries fashion well, even when she’s dressed so simply in her signature jeans and white t-shirt. While her casual style is classically elegant, she’s elegant period on the red carpet. She often shows just a teeny hint of cleavage without looking trashy in the least.
10. Taylor Swift
Being famous has its drawbacks, especially for celebrities who like keeping their personal lives as private as possible. Unfortunately for big celebrities like Taylor Swift, not all the money in the world can buy her the privacy she may crave, no thanks to bloodthirsty paparazzi chasing her wherever she goes. Swift as a celebrity embodies the perfect target to be chased after 24/7: she’s beautiful, tall, talented, and her personal life is more than just a little colorful. Since she’s so tall and slender, she looks good in almost anything, plus she’s really into fashion. You never see her with a hair out of place. She has been photographed strutting the streets in cute little summer dresses, short shorts and flowy tops, girly rompers, and she’s always well-accessorized: a hat, a bag, a belt, and most noticeably, she’s always in high heels—as if she wasn’t tall enough! But her clothes suit her disposition and almost anyone can agree that she always looks amazing.
9. Mila Kunis
Being petite certainly poses a challenge when it comes to fashion and you have to know what types of clothes will flatter you or make you look frumpy. But Mila Kunis certainly knows what types of clothes work for her and what don’t. The Ukrainian-born actress started in Hollywood as a teenager of 15 when she played the role of Jackie Burkhart in the comedy hit show That ‘70s Show. She successfully transitioned to film when she appeared in Forgetting Sarah Marshall, but it wasn’t until she took on the role of a vicious ballerina in Black Swan that she was considered a serious actress. For her role opposite Natalie Portman, she received an Academy Award nomination for Best Supporting Actress. She’s constantly being photographed in her private time, mostly because she’s married to fellow That ‘70s Show alum Ashton Kutcher. Kunis’ fashion style can be defined as very feminine. She loves dresses and when she wears pants, she almost always pairs them with a very girly top.
8. Emma Stone
Among all female celebrities, Emma Stone is probably one of those who fall under the category of “take home to mama” when it comes to how the ordinary guy sees her. She had her first starring role in the teen comedy Easy A, for which she was nominated for a Golden Globe Award. She starred in her first of three films opposite actor Ryan Gosling in the 2011 comedy Crazy, Stupid, Love and her career has taken off ever since. She received an Academy Award nomination for Best Supporting Actress for the Oscar-winning film Birdman and she appeared on Broadway for a revival of Cabaret. Indeed, Stone’s star is shining bright. It doesn’t hurt that she’s such a head-turner, with her locks of beautiful red hair. She’s constantly watched for her fashion sense and what great fashion sense she has! She slays on the red carpet in sexy, but elegant dresses and she’s seen on the streets wearing simple jeans, knit tops, and flats.
7. Jennifer Garner
In an industry where being reed thin is considered more beautiful than a woman with meat, Jennifer Garner defies the stereotype. Garner is by no means hefty, but she’s not a toothpick either. She practically flew under our radar in the small roles she appeared in for films like Dude, Where’s My Car and Pearl Harbor. Instead, she gained recognition on the small screen, when she played Sydney Barstow in the spy-action thriller show Alias. It was uphill from then on, as she took on roles in the films Daredevil, Juno, and the lead role in the romantic comedy hit 13 Going On 30. She’s been in the news a lot lately because of her separation from Ben Affleck and she’s constantly photographed in workout clothes, signifying that she’s looking as fit and fab as ever post-separation. If she’s not in her gym attire, she’s seen in jeans, summer dresses, and sandals or boots, depending on the season.
6. Vanessa Hudgens
We will always know her as Gabriella, Troy’s sweetheart in the High School Musical film franchise. Vanessa Hudgens has long since graduated from her teeny bopper Disney image to star in more adult-oriented films, though these films were not necessarily box office hits. She has been known to find success when she sticks close to her musical roots, as she received good reviews for her Broadway performance of the musical Gigi in 2015 and her role as Rizzo in Grease: Live early this year. She will be seen next in TV series Powerless, which is based on DC comic characters. Hudgens is constantly photographed by the paparazzi and she always looks so put together. With her long flowing dark locks, she rocks the boho look quite well. She has been seen in flowy white tops, crochet midriffs, maxi summer dresses, straw hats, and wedge shoes to boost her petite frame.
5. Jennifer Lawrence
Everyone and their mother loves Jennifer Lawrence. For one, she’s amazingly talented, having garnered critical acclaim and her first of four Oscar nominations (the youngest actress to have accomplished such a feat) for her role in the 2010 film Winter’s Bone. She eventually won an Academy Award for Best Actress for her role in the film Silver Linings Playbook. Secondly, she’s gorgeous, but not conventionally so. She has been criticized by nitpickers as being too “fat,” but she has fought back by standing up for her body image, by not dieting like crazy just to cave in to standards. And lastly, she’s so genuine and an absolute goofball. In the many awards shows she has attended, she constantly endears herself to the public with her unguarded comments and clumsy antics on the red carpet. She may exclusively be dressed by Christian Dior at awards shows, but in her private time, she’s a jeans and t-shirt type of gal.
4. Reese Witherspoon
It’s pretty challenging for someone with a petite frame to make clothes work for her. Luckily for Reese Witherspoon, she’s always had an eye for fashion, whether it’s at public events or when she’s on her own personal time. This southern belle received recognition and acclaim for her roles in the films Pleasantville and Election when she was but a teenager. Though she had a supporting role in the film Cruel Intentions, her breakthrough role came in 2001 when she played Elle Woods in the highly successful film Legally Blonde, cementing her status as a romantic comedy actress. She joined the ranks of Hollywood greats when she won an Oscar for Best Actress for the film Walk The Line and she’s been an A-lister ever since. Witherspoon is known for her impeccable style, whether it’s on the red carpet or on her down time. She’s always so put together, from her tops to her jeans or skirts to her shoes to her bags and accessories.
3. Pippa Middleton
She may be Kate Middleton, Duchess of Cambridge’s little sister, but she’s by no means in her big sister’s shadow. Pippa Middleton gained international fame during the wedding day of her sister to Britain’s heir to the throne, Prince William back in 2011. She acted as her sister’s maid of honor, wearing a sleek white silk dress that hugged her svelte figure. The simplicity and elegance of the dress and the person wearing it was nothing short of stunning and the world took notice, giving her the nickname “her royal hotness.” Since then, Middleton has been featured by media almost as often as her sister is and the public usually focuses on either her style or her personal life. Though it’s clear that her clothes and accessories are expensive, they’re still quite simple yet tasteful. Her outfits range from striped dresses with cardigans to simple jeans, nude pumps, and lace tops to wool dresses and coats during the cold season.
2. Blake Lively
Back when Gossip Girl was still the show to watch on television (at least for those in their teens and 20s), it was clear who among its actors would have a thriving career once the show ended. Blake Lively, who played Serena van der Woodsen, stood out among her co-stars. With her long, flowing blond hair and equally long legs, she was the main fashion icon in a show that was indeed most known for the stylish outfits that its characters wore. Before Gossip Girl, Lively appeared in the film Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants. Post Gossip Girl, she accepted roles in films such as The Age of Adaline, Café Society, and The Shallows. Lively’s public appearances are always highly anticipated because she’s never known to disappoint when it comes to the outfits she wears. In fact, being pregnant with her second child, she has embraced her baby bump and has taken maternity style to a whole new sexy level.
1. Margot Robbie
Margot Robbie’s most recent film Suicide Squad was mostly panned by critics, despite its box office success. In fact, many who have watched it have said that the only silver lining of the film was Robbie’s enthralling performance as Harley Quinn. The 26-year-old Australian made her Hollywood film debut in the romantic comedy About Time and she later co-starred opposite Leonardo DiCaprio in the film The Wolf of Wall Street. Aside from Suicide Squad, she also plays Jane to Alexander Skarsgard’s Tarzan in the 2016 film The Legend of Tarzan. She has two other films this year, making her one of the busiest actresses today. She has made several public appearances to promote all of her movies and it is easy to spot what her style is. She is edgy, yet feminine, wearing leather pants with lace tops, metallic gold gowns with plunging necklines, and animal print ensembles.
