Britain was the world capital of cool in the Swinging 60s and made a comeback in the style stakes during the Cool Britannia era of the mid-90s.
But Brit reality TV stars are a new breed of accessible celebrity that might be an even bigger influence on the world of fashion than popstars.
Their massive social media fan-bases make them highly sought-after as brand ambassadors — potential customers turn to them first for fashion tips and tricks.
So let’s take a look at five British female celebs with styles that rock.
Ash Defty made her name on Ex on the Beach — a racy reality show where the cast of singles are joined by ex-partners who either rekindle romances or cause complete mayhem.
As you might imagine, she spends much of her screen time in stunning swimwear like sparkling two-piece bikinis.
But she’s also fond of an elegant strapped black bodice dress to show off her curves at red carpet events.
And 250,000 Instagram followers are always eagerly awaiting hot-off-the press photos of her latest fashion triumph.
Vikki Pattison has starred in Geordie Shore and I’m a Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here!

Zahida’s another Geordie Shore star with a bulging Instagram account — 460,000 devotees have flocked to her Instagram page.
