Americans have always looked toward celebrities for the latest styles and trends and to find out what’s hot and what’s not. Consumers make many of their decisions on everything from fashion, hairstyles and diets to cars, music and home decorating based on what they see in celebrity culture.

Using E-Score® Celebrity, we surveyed people across the country to see which celebrities will have the most influence over consumers’ decisions on styles, trends and fashion in the year ahead.

Americans will be looking toward two women from across the pond for the latest fashions, with Kate Middleton and Victoria Beckham as the two most trendsetting female celebrities. Rap and urban music will set the tone for men’s style, with the likes of Pharrell Williams, Ne-Yo, Sean “Diddy” Combs, Macklemore, Usher and Jay Z all in the top 10 among male celebrities.
