7. THE NEW MUSE
Watch out world: fashion has a new style icon, and she's not to be messed with. "I wanted to make pieces that will last years. Beyond trends, beyond chain stores," says Arkansas-born punk-singer-turned-designer Beth Ditto of her new vintage-inspired plus-size clothing line. "I wanted to create something just for us, made with love and consideration, and made ethically in the USA as a small company with no big corporate input. Uncompromising, unapologetic and timeless." We certainly won't argue with that, Ms Ditto.
