Most things that spawn from celebrities aren't always so pretty: Lady Gaga's heelless shoes, Ke$ha's blue lipstick, and even a certain socialite's penchant for putting her chihuahua in her purse. Yet, every now and again, a tastemaker comes along and really ignites a craze, inspiring a whole group to follow in his or her stead.

Sure, they may have had their fingers on a sort of pulse or caught a glimpse of something cool in the fashion crystal ball, but each of these looks didn't really take off until one of these women truly made it her own. Fortunately, it's good to know that not every style-star trend involves putting a pooch in a bag.
