The 13 Celebrities With the Best Feminine Style

There’s more to fashion than a Kardashian in a skin-tight frock. Even though plenty of celebrities expose every nook and cranny of the body in clingy clothes, plenty of celebrities still exude class with a timeless style.

We can always count on these celebrities to wear the prettiest frocks and set the bar high for the rest of us.
