What we’re learning from these LGBTQIA+ celebrities about life and fashion

by Drishti Mistry

Given that we’re celebrating Pride Month here at Nykaa Fashion, a round-up of the most stylish LGBTQIA+ celebrities was a must. But while we can all agree that there’s a lot about fashion one can learn from these stars, there’s so much more to them and a lot of other lessons that one can learn from them. So we thought, why not go the extra mile and highlight their impact within and beyond the sartorial realm of things. Scroll down to read what we found…

Jameela Jamil

Life: It takes just one to start a revolution. Be the change you want to see in the world around you and never really give up.

Fashion: Florals are not just for spring or just the day, there are new ways to wear it round the year and round the clock.

Lilly Singh

Life: You’re the ‘Bawse’ (a human being who exudes confidence, turns heads, reaches goals and gets hurt efficiently) of your own life.

Fashion: There’s no such thing as too much colour. When worn in simple silhouettes and complementing combinations, colourful clothing can become your closet’s coolest companions.

Cara Delevingne

Life: It’s okay to be different from others and make silly faces. Don’t take life too seriously and make the most of it while you can!

Fashion: Classic is always cool – from her monochromatic mainstays to her power-packed pantsuits – the supermodel’s trick to balance the timeless with the trendy is worth noting.

Drew Barrymore

Life: Family always comes first and a positive mindset goes a long way!

Fashion: How to do fashion in your 40s’ right – the actress leads by example with her free-flowing maxis, jumpsuits and jackets.

Billy Porter

Life: Don’t be afraid to speak up and when you do, say what you mean!

Fashion: Don’t shy away from a sartorial experiment or a two. Yes, we’re referring to those trailblazing tuxedo dresses, those OTT headgears and those over all campy looks.

Janelle Monáe

Life: Embrace your roots and your culture unapologetically while staying grounded.

Fashion: The only way to ace androgyny is to serve it with a side of camp – leave it up to Monáe to show you how it’s done.

Life: In his own words, “If you can’t love yourself, how the hell are you going to love somebody else?”

Fashion: Getting dressed is an art and an extension of expression of you. So, don’t be afraid to go all out when you’re feeling a bit extra or lean on simplistic suiting when you’re feeling like it – maximalism or minimalism, you don’t have to choose sides, opt for what suits your mood and you do you.
