List RulesVote up the consistently best dressed famous women and style icons.

The most stylish female celebrities manage to capture our attention with their stunning fashion choices. Whether it's a classic Hollywood red carpet style or a more bold, unique outfit worn for a night on the town, the women on this list are without a doubt one of a kind fashionistas. They aren't afraid to take risks with their clothes, their hairstyles or with anything else for that matter. Sure, sometimes the risks don't pay off, but when they do? It's Hollywood gold -- and it's trend setting.

Every year, People Magazine picks their best dressed female celeb. In 2013, it was Kerry Washington. In 2014, it was Taylor Swift. But those stylish winners were chosen by a handful of fashion editors. We want to know what you think! Be sure to vote up the names of your favorites, and vote down those celebrities you think fall far short of the style mark. Also, if you have a favorite celebrity style icon, be sure to add them to the list!

Celebrities often have access to a slew of fashion designers and stylists to help them select the perfect outfits, but still some celebs just can't pull it all together. Not so for the stylish female celebs on this list. Each one demonstrates the confidence to rock almost anything - even things that other actresses, musicians and/or models would never, ever wear. Examples? Let's talk about the cool, trendy style of up-and-coming supermodels like Gigi Hadid, Kendall Jenner, and Cara Delevingne. Or the wacky street style of Gwen Stefani. Or how about the always extraordinary looks donned by fashionable Beyonce, Charlize Theron, or Lupita Nyong'o? And then there's Kate Middleton, aka the Duchess of Cambridge. She exudes style wherever she goes, even during two pregnancies!

Anyone who knows fashion will tell you that flawless style takes more than awesome clothes - it's also about attitude, whether it's owning the Oscars red carpet or just running to Starbucks on a lazy Sunday. Photogs are everywhere, so most of the top A-list celebrities rarely throw on sweatpants and a dirty t-shirt to get their caffeine fix. They do, however, occasionally miss the mark. But all is usually forgiven, because these popular women are consistent in their stylish choices.
