WHO: Maddie Ziegler
WHAT: Dancer, Dance Mums

On her must-haves for fall:
"Definitely some nice jeans, a comfy sweater, and a cute pair of boots."

On her style icons:
"I love Zendaya, because she can dress it up and be tomboyish, but then she can be also flirty and cute, so I really like the contrast of both of those."

WHO: Tessa Thompson
WHAT: Actress, Creed 

On her must-haves for fall:
"Those Dior patent leather boots (similar style); I got to wear them for a fashion shoot. And not just because they took about a half-hour to get on, but because they are so incredible once they are on, I just never want to take them off. It’s one those fashion moments that you just wish you were Rihanna and that every day you had an occasion to wear thigh-high boots. I’ve never done an over-the-knee, thigh-high boot, and I think it’s time. It’s on my bucket list, and it just might happen this fall for me."

On her style icons:
"From days past, I really love Bianca Jagger. Now, I’m such a Tilda Swinton fan. I couldn’t ever possibly wear anything she wears, because she’s like a human statue, but her style drives me crazy. I think she is so daring and bold. And of course, Diane Kruger is flawless all the time. I think Emma Stone does really fun and exciting things. I’m really inspired in the design world by the Rodarte sisters. I think they are so imaginative, and what I love about them for high fashion is they take you to a place that is otherworldly; it doesn’t feel like it’s grounded completely on this planet."

WHO: Tori Kelly
WHAT: Singer-songwriter, Should’ve Been Us

On her must-haves for fall:
"A leather jacket is number one, and a sick pair of boots. I’m obsessed with beanies, like really big beanies. I like this brand called Love Your Melon. It’s super amazing, because if you buy a beanie, they give one to a child with cancer. And they are these giant beanies that are great for big hair."

On her style icons:
"Today, I feel like I’m channeling a Bruno Mars vibe, which I’m not mad at, because he’s amazing. I do have kind of a tomboy side, and I really dig men’s fashion. I always really liked Lenny Kravitz. I feel like no one really mentions him when it comes to style, but he’s super dope."

WHO: Aubrey Peeples
WHAT: Actress, Jem and the Holograms

On her must-haves for fall:
"There’s some boots at Zara I want. I’m obsessed with LD Tuttle shoes. They are so expensive, so hey, LD Tuttle if you’re out there. … As always, I want some more black-and-white T-shirts. And I want a new leather jacket—I’m putting that out there."

On her style icons:
"Kristen Stewart all the way. I really like androgynous, menswear-inspired clothes just in my everyday life—super-simple T-shirt-and-jeans kind of girl."

WHO: Peyton List
WHAT: Actress, Jessie and Bunk’d

On her must-haves for fall:
"A leather jacket—an older, beat-up one—and I love my Stuart Weitzman boots that go up to the knee, and then I have these velvet shorts I just got from Urban Outfitters, and I’m obsessed with them. I also just love my flare jeans by James Jeans. They elongate my legs and make every woman look like a million bucks." 

On her style icons:
"I was just talking about this with my hairstylist Castillo, and he does Ruby Rose’s hair, and she is my #WCW. As style icons go, a classic one is Grace Kelly. I love her. I think she is so elegant. I love Olivia Palermo and Blake Lively, too."

WHO: Cleopatra Coleman
WHAT: Actress, The Last Man on Earth

On her must-haves for fall:
"I have to have a jacket—and I mean a light jacket because this is L.A.—some comfy socks to wear at home, and some headwear, something cute to go with a scarf."

On her style icons:
"I mean my mum is pretty good, and she studied couture. Lauren Bacall was always a major fashion icon for me. Grace Jones took a lot of chances. I always look to the past. There is really no one living who inspires me more than people from the past."

WHO: Carly Chaikin
WHAT: Actress, Mr. Robot

On her must-haves for fall:
"Boots are always the biggest thing for me, and a big comfy sweater that goes with everything, and a yummy T-shirt."

On her style icons:
"Mary-Kate Olsen, only because she was a big one when I was 15, so you just have to stay true. Blake Lively, I feel like she always looks so amazing on the red carpet."

WHO: Kelsea Ballerini
WHAT: Singer-songwriter, The First Time

On her must-haves for fall:
"Scarves. I mean, I say it every year, but I think you could make an outfit with a fun, cute scarf."

On her style icons:
"I actually got to hang out with Nicole Miller in New York last week, and she’s just amazing. A) I love her stuff, and B) she’s just a powerful female in the creative industry. But as far as a celebrity icon, I think Blake Lively is my girl."
