Sibling rivalry: it’s all over the place, everywhere you look in every family – there are women who hate their sisters or fight with their brothers, and men who seek constant competition with their brothers and pick fights with their little sisters.
But how do you really decide who is the better sibling? It’s not as easy as rushing up to your parents, your voice trying to be a decibel higher than your siblings in desperation to be the best. So, how about we rank ourselves, or rather famous siblings, in the terms of style?
Type into Google ‘famous sisters’ and the first answer that you see? Mary-Kate, Ashley and Elizabeth Olsen. Of course, the powerful Olsen trio! While Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen have been in the limelight since the toddler age, Elizabeth has more recently walked into the same light after various acting roles including the main part in 2011 thriller ‘Martha Marcy May Marlene’.
Even though Mary-Kate and Ashley have now steered away from acting and have dived headfirst into an extremely successful fashion-designing career, these girls are undoubtedly the most famous (and stylish) of the celebrity siblings. Elizabeth’s mix of femininity-meets-masculinity and classic chic brings her up there with her sisters, whilst Mary-Kate and Ashley’s oversized grunge and touches of monochrome helps the two fashionista’s to stay at the top of their game and in my fashion heroine good books!
But who’s next? Keep scrolling down the search engine and you’ll see that name that we can’t escape: Beyonce. Former Destiny’s Child member-turned-solo artist-turned actress can’t help but be a typical girl’s idol. She’s fabulous, talented and all woman! But now, Solange Knowles, Bey’s younger sis is creeping in, making us scream with her boho chic with an added colourful twist.
Whilst Beyonce will always be the cream of the crop, 26 year-old Solange has made her name in the fashion world as a model after hitting the runway for Alberta Ferretti. But while these two lovely ladies look extremely similar, who will make it to the top in terms of style? We can agree Beyonce might snatch it because of her popularity, but Solange has a spark that we’ve yet to truly discover…
Love them, or in my case hate them, you can’t deny that those Kardashian ladies are everywhere. Kim, Khloe and Kourtney have made their mark in the celebrity world, not just with their horrendously dramatic reality TV show, but also with their love affairs – and they did it in style. Whilst I’m not a big fan of over-done diva look, you can’t deny that Kim Kardashian is a fashion icon for young girls everywhere because of her famous physique and taste for bodycon dresses.
On terms of sibling rivalry – we all know that this trio have got it – one minute they hate each other, the next minute they can’t be separated. But they worked together to create a line for high street retailer Dorothy Perkins, aptly named the Kardashian Kollection, which includes evening dresses, fitted blazers and girly tops to make any girl look or feel like a Kardashian.
The celebrity world is full of famous siblings like these, who we can’t help but love! Their style makes us swoon, their talents make us emotional and their looks make us jealous. Whether you want to be one of the Fanning sisters, dressing pretty like Elle and Dakota, or have those killer Delevingne facial features like Cara and Poppy, we look up to sassy sisters in admiration all the time.
I know for a fact that if my brother and I ever became a famous sibling duet amongst the others, I’d definitely be the stylish one!
