Kristen Stewart named UK’s most searched celebrity style icon
London: Kristen Stewart knocked Pippa Middleton off the top spot to become UK’s most searched celebrity style icon.
Once known for her grubby converse and grungy styling, the ‘Twilight’ actress has adopted a more polished look in the past 1 year, winning positive responses from the fashion world and a lucrative perfume campaign for French label, Balenciaga.
Though Middleton topped the poll in 2011, the 2012 result showed her placed in a lowly 11th place.
Other celebrities who came up trumps this year were the ‘X Factor’ judge Tulisa Contostavlos, who achieved second place and quirky American actress, Zooey Deschanel in third.
Last year’s runner up, The Saturdays singer Frankie Sandford dropped to ninth and ‘TOWIE’ star Sam Faiers, who came third in 2011, didn’t make the top 10 this time around.
Other celebrities present in the top 10 for 2012 were actress Emma Watson, model Miranda Kerr and Radio One DJ, Fearne Cotton.
“We had quite a few new entries this year which makes our top ten very diverse!” Bobbie Malpass, editor of MyCelebrityFashion.co.uk - the website that produced the figures, said.
“We really like keeping an eye on who are the most searched for celebrity names on the website, to make sure we deliver to our readers their favourite celebrity styles and relevant content.
“This new top ten shows that people are looking for a range of styles and are taking inspiration from many different celebrities,” she added.
