They are the stars of the Chictopian community. Everybody looks up to their daily inspiration and that’s why they are so important. This article features last year’s style icons, their best styles and their ways towards stardom.
One of last year’s greatest style icons, without a doubt. Keiko_Lynn is that girl we all want to exchange wardrobes with. Her personal style is known all over the globe, with garments “in the style of Keiko Lynn” for sale on eBay and other online stores she really made it to Fashionista stardom in 2010.
Keiko Lynn who actually claims she used to be unsure of herself and used to always make a concerted effort to blend into the wallpaper, really blossomed when she discovered her love for fashion, which helped her to come out of her shell.
“I enjoy standing out from the crowd. In a sea of black, my colorful outfits help me to do just that.”
Regular Chictopian blessed with a perfect body: meggstatus has a personal vintage style which always makes her stand out from the crowd. This girl manages to look perfect from head to toe, usually finishing off her outfits with a fabulous hat from her (vintage) hat collection.
“Much like how wild dogs can smell fear, fashion critics can smell hesitation. So my advice is to mix on colors, and to be confident in whatever you choose to wear. Life is too short to worry about improper mash-ups. When you’re picking the scoops of an ice cream cone, you go with what you like – not the color combos – so why can’t fashion be the same?”

One of latest style icons, but nevertheless one of the most inspirational (always getting it right), Fancytreehouse (because who wouldn’t want to their days in a fancy treehouse?) is like a blonde stylish goddess of chictopia. With a style that is something in between, combining different elements of several styles, she manages to make anything her own.
“For as long as I can remember, my favorite thing to do was to put outfits together, wear them and make every day in each outfit the best day of my life.”
The male Chictopian starlet of 2010 has been Hawaiikidd, for sure. Starting over his Chictopia account somewhere around September, he started to become a rising star and boy did he rise quickly. His style could be described as quirky, unisex, combination of prints and colors, endless imagination and for that he inspires all of us, both male and female.
In short: he is the male Chictopia Style Icon of 2010 with a funky unique hairdo, a fashion student who poses like crazy, has his pictures taken by his 10-year-old cousin and improves them with Photoshop.
Dutch Style Icon FashionZen has been one of my own inspirations ever since I first started out on chictopia. Often using soft colors in combination with flowy fabrics, surprising detailing and vintage pieces; her style makes me speechless every time.
This girl is a 27-year-old fashion student hand-made the dress in the picture herself, I find that garment a great summary of her overall style: soft color scheme with perfect detailing.
