From the red carpet to their Instagram feeds, these are the 13 girls whose commitment to the style cause had our eyes glued to them over the last 12 months. Agree? Then check out their best looks and nab a few style ideas for yourself in 2014.
Her year: From her amazing turn in Blue is the Warmest Color (which earned her the top Palme d'Or prize at the Cannes Film Festival) to scoring a Miu Miu campaign, 2013 has been pretty epic for the 20-year-old French actress.
Her style story: Striking a chord with high-end designers from the off, she's worn outfits by Balmain (left), Gucci (right), Fendi and obvs Miu Miu (hey, that's the pay-off for being the hottest new actress around, right?). She always gives them her own spin via unkempt locks and a sexy, smoky eye.

Her year: Mostly spent dominating the cool international party scene with her pals Laura Love and Camille Rowe (two girls to keep a stylish eye on in 2014). The 21-year-old also appeared in advertisements for Roger Vivier, which were shot by teen photographer Olivia Bee, causing a buzz on the internet.
Her style story: With a rock star dad (John Taylor from Duran Duran) and glamour puss mom Amanda de Cadenet (host of show The Conversation on Lifetime), she's inherited a love of band T-shirts and leopard print.

Her year: She performed at the Super Bowl, then spoon fed us incredible pics of her amazing life on Instagram and Tumblr the whole year round, ending the year on a career high when she released her new visual album Beyoncé in the middle of the night.

Her year: It's no surprise she was 2013's most reblogged model on Tumblr after becoming the face of DKNY, Saint Laurent, Mulberry, Fendi, Burberry’s Body Tender fragrance, YSL Baby Doll mascara plus tons more, as well as appearing on seven magazine covers. Not bad for someone putting modeling on the back burner to focus on acting and a rumored record, huh?

Her year: When she wasn't posing for Rimmel London, she racked up some serious mag air time and catwalk appearances in 2013. She also hooked the Miu Miu Fall '13 campaign, so after all that we wouldn’t be surprised if she needed a nap at her London pad, which she shares with Cara.
Her style story: As well as having access to her iconic mom Jerry Hall's wardrobe, she's a big Brit label fan, loving Vivienne Westwood and Alexander McQueen (check out her skull shirt, right) and digs statement jewelry: ear cuffs and chokers were her thing in 2013.

Her year: Between DJing at all the coolest parties, the entrepreneur and NYC girl about town got busy this year with launching Beautified (an app which helps you find last-minute beauty appointments).
Her style story: HB is a total dress devotee, busting a look in bodycon at one party, switching to cute and girlie at another. She's got the best accessory stash going—hats (bobble, caps, turbans, you name it) and cool sneakers are her trademark.

Her year: Between filming Love, Rosie (due out next year) and allegedly dating Zac Efron, she shot a cover for Vanity Fair and became the face of Lancôme.
Her style story: Giving Cara a run for her money in the best brow category, Lily's makeup (always a red lip) has become a bit of an infatuation for us this year. Style-wise, she's equally on the money, opting for lacy slip dresses and trendy sweatshirts.

Her year: Face it, this was officially the year of the Cyrus. Her combo of twerking, tongue and Twitter world domination (as well as the infamous foam finger incident) made her queen of 2013 and the third most Googled celeb in the world according to their 2013 zeitgeist. You go Miley!
Her style story: While her new BFF, Marc Jacobs, no doubt gave her a few handy hints in the style department, she also owned cool-girl double denim, glitzy evening gowns and turbans, plus she's the only girl we know who could rock a cat print twosie. Love her or not, she's definitely never boring.

Her year: Harry Styles was her wingman for the front rows of London Fashion Week, including the Happy Ashley show, a label which happens to be designed by her best pal, Ashley Williams, and Funky Offish partner (look out for their jewelry label landing early 2014).

Her year: Riri became the third most followed person on Instagram, won her sixth Grammy, became the fastest solo artist to achieve 13 chart-toppers (yah-huh, beating Mariah and The Beatles) and has just been announced as the face of Balmain. Talk about werkin' 9-5.
Her style story: RiRi was 2013's Sporty Spice. She brought back the beanie with BFF Cara and had us all reaching for a baseball jacket. She worked red carpet separates as majorly as a slogan tee. BOOM.
Her year: When she wasn't kicking off her singing career, she was busy being the face of Burberry's Brit Rhythm perfume, flying to see her boyfriend Bradley Cooper in LA and going to festivals with her best pals (and fellow stylish 2013-ers) Cara and Georgia May.
Her style story: If the comments on her Instagram are anything to go by, her perfect shaggy mane and devotion to anything '60s (cat flick eyeliner, baker boy caps, girlie pastel skater dresses—we could go on), are her biggest style hits of the year.
Her year: With a rock star dad (Lenny) and actress mim (Lisa Bonet), it’s no biggie for Zoë to be working across both industries. This year, she formed a new band Lolawolf and filmed the Mad Max remake. Oh, and she may or may not be dating Drizzy Drake.
Her style story: This year, Zoë has become the poster girl for LBD alt-spiration. Think sheer bralets with slouchy silk pants and tuxedos. Plus, her collection of one-off jewels and giant bangles is the swooniest.
