Most Stylish TV Characters Of All Time

In honor of the 67th annual Emmy Awards, we’ve decided to take a look back at our favorite fashion icons in television. Here is our top 10:

10. Jessa Johansson – Girls 
Jessa is Brooklyn’s bohemian dream. She continues to drive us wild with her impressive collection of kimonos and effortlessly styled hair. She’s the kind of girl that could roll out of home in a tablecloth and make it an instant trend.

9. Rachel Green – Friends  
We loved Rachel when she was a waitress in white tees, mini skirts and overalls. Our adoration grew as we watched her grow up, get a job at Ralph Lauren, and realize her destiny as a fashion icon. While Rachel had an impressive wardrobe, her claim to fame was those trendsetting tresses.

8. Patsy Stone – Absolutely Fabulous
We expect nothing less from a supermodel-turned-magazine fashion director! Who didn’t love Patsy’s chic suits, beehive hair-do and dark sunglasses?

7. Marissa Cooper – The OC 
Only millennial teens will understand the gravity of The OC’s impact on our wardrobes. Marissa’s west coast style was built around flat shoes, beach party dresses and preppy polo shirts.

6. Charlie’s Angels – Charlie’s Angels 
You can’t single out an Angel, so we’ve chosen the whole cohort. Their seventies glamour shaped the style of an era, and continues to be called-upon whenever flared jeans make a comeback. Think: gold accessories, Farrah Fawcett hair flicks, and high-waisted trousers.

5. Mary Ann and Ginger – Gilligan’s Island 
For decades now, women have often been categorised as one of two male fantasies: Mary Ann or Ginger. Mary Ann was the ultimate girl-next-door in pigtails and mini shorts, while Ginger was the bombshell with a wardrobe of animal prints and glamorous evening gowns. Which one are you?

4. Olivia Pope – Scandal
Olivia, like her style, is powerful, sophisticated and sexy. Thank Olivia for many of this year’s trends, including tailored suits, robe coats, and white.

3. Blair Waldorf – Gossip Girl
This Manhattan princess was the envy of every girl in NYC, with a wardrobe full of expensive designer-wear – and Daddy’s bank account to play with. While Blair’s partner in crime, Serena Van Der Woodsen, was close competition, we can’t go past Blair’s bold choices and uncanny ability to accessorize.

2. Betty Draper/Francis – Mad Men
Before Megan sashayed in with her with her youthful, mod style and fresh-faced charm, Betty Draper was inspiring women around the world to embrace sixties housewife glamour in a way they hadn’t since the era itself. It was difficult to choose which of Mad Men‘s leading ladies would represent them on this list. But Betty’s Grace Kelly looks, flawless red lips (how?), and full, floral skirts have captured our hearts and held our gazes since the very first season.

1. Carrie Bradshaw – Sex and the City  
Remember the lingerie? The giant flower accessories? The Manolo Blahniks? Sex and the City’s costume designer, Patricia Field, became an overnight celebrity; every outfit featured in the first film because an instant trend (gladiator heels, anyone?); and the show single-handedly spurred a worldwide obsession with stilettos. Others have tried, but nobody has managed to make the same cultural and sartorial waves since Carrie and her friends.

Get The Look: Kerry Washington’s Pretty Emmys Makeup

Kerry Washington is one of our best dressed celebrities at the Emmys in her spectacular Marchesa princess gown, but her makeup was also a standout, with soft, smokey eyes and nude lips. Celebrity makeup artist Carola Gonzalez created this perfect makeup look and shares the exact products she used. “The inspiration came from the delicate dress,” Carola said. “Although I like a matte finish, especially for awards shows, I added a radiance to her skin with Hourglass Ambient Lighting Powder in Radiant Light. It’s the perfect shade for Kerry.”

Skin

Prime the skin with Hourglass Veil Mineral Primer, and follow withHourglass Immaculate Liquid Powder Foundation in Warm Beige. “I’m really impressed with the airbrushed finish this foundation creates,” says Carola. “And I really don’t need to use powder anymore.” Conceal any imperfections with Clé de Peau Beauté Concealer in Honey.

Eyes

Apply the mauve shimmer shade from Hourglass Visionaire Eye Shadow Duo in Exhibition to the inner corner of the eyes and the lids, and the eggplant shimmer shade to the outer edge of the eye and beneath the bottom lash line. Blend the two shades together. Apply Ardell Natural Lashes in 110, line the eyes with Hourglass Script Precision Liner in Jett, and finish off with three coats of Hourglass Film Noir Full Spectrum Mascara.

Define the brows with Hourglass Arch Brow Sculpting Pencil in Dark Brunette.

Cheeks

Apply Hourglass Ambient Lighting Powder in Radiant Light on the cheekbones, forehead, nose and chin. Apply Lancôme Blush Subtil in Sparkling Rose to the apples of the cheeks and sweep towards the temples.

Lips

Prep lips with Hourglass No. 28 Lip Treatment Oil for superior hydration. Apply Hourglass Extreme Sheen Lip Gloss in Truth, a beige rose, for the finishing touch.
