6 Iconic Fashion Families Of The Last Decade

Their faces monopolize magazine covers across the globe. The glamorous lives they lead fascinate the masses while their looks boost retail sales season after season. Here's a look at families that have built empires around their images in the last decade.

The Beckhams
Beating out all others by at least double the votes, the Beckhams were recently named the world's most fashionable celebrity family in a survey conducted by TVBet.co.uk. While Victoria and David have been making headlines in the industry for nearly twenty years, it is the latest news that their son Romeo will be modeling for Burberry that places this royal family of fashion firmly at the top.

The Kardashians
Not to be outdone, the Kardashians will undoubtedly add another prodigy to their trend-setting tribe with the arrival of Kim and Kanye's baby sometime this summer. The Kardashian sisters have capitalized on their status as fashion icons by launching a clothing and accessories line that reflects their appreciation for fitted frocks, short hemlines and animal prints.

The Jolie-Pitts
While the Hollywood power couple is an epitome of effortless style, Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie have focused their brand around charitable causes rather than their status as fashion icons. However, Angelina has recently found a way to celebrate both style and charity through her jewelry line, which supports children in conflict regions.

Beyoncé, Jay-Z and Blue Ivy
This year has seen Beyoncé on three Vogue covers and the mid-year has yet to arrive. Her career has featured glitzy looks that accentuated her curves and reflected her glamorous off-stage lifestyle. Her marriage to rapper-turned-business mogul Jay-Z and the addition of their daughter Blue Ivy last year solidly places this musical family on our most fashionable list.

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge
While royal status often affords one an automatic entry onto many lists, Prince William and, more notably, his wife Kate Middleton have elicited nothing but high praise from the fashion world since their marriage two years ago. While the beloved Princess of Wales left large shoes to fill on the fashion front, the Duchess of Cambridge has managed to set fashion trends unlike any of her contemporaries. Even in maternity wear, Kate flawlessly evokes the classic style of sophistication befitting a royal with every well-tailored dress and stylish hat.

The Stefani-Rossdales
While many musical families claim a glam-rock image, the Stefani-Rossdales set the decade standard for true rocker style. With the introduction of her clothing line in 2003, Gwen Stefani successfully managed to combine the feminine couture look with a rocker edge. Her signature bleach-blonde hair and red lipstick lend glamour to graphic prints and plaids. Her latest relaxed, baggy look is unique and reflects the casual ska look sported by her husband and sons.

While many celebrity families wear the latest styles and can be described as fashionable, few families are so original that they create their own brands. These brands are simply outward expressions of who they are, and that is what makes them truly iconic.
