Why do I feel that every corner I turn there is another pair of super fashionable sisters? Sure I follow all of the Kardashians on Instagram (and by the numbers who doesn’t) but there are pairs of sisters that I actually admire. Perhaps it is because I do not have a sister and have always wanted one but are handful of sister duos where I would love the be the third girl:
Cara and Poppy Delevingne Beautiful, blonde models and socialites? Sure, there are a handful of pairs but these British sisters are catapulting to the top of the fashion world. Cara, with her big, bold brows, has recently been the face of some of the biggest names in the industry including Burberry, then Chanel, then DNKY, Marc Jacobs, Louis Vuitton. I hated her hair in the most recent DKNY campaign but the girl has game, plus her inner circle is other top models. Her older sister, Poppy, is also represented by Storm Model Management and has walked numerous runways for Burberry and Marc Jacobs, as well as servicing a Chanel brand ambassador. They have many, many years to go as Cara is only 22 and Poppy, 28.
Zooey and Emily Deschanel These two actresses may not look much alike but they are both very talented. One of the first shows I ever binge watched on Netflix was Bones and feel in love with the the quirky Doctor Temperance Brennan. Emily Deschanel plays the role beautifully and others must agree with me because the show has been on for ten years. And I am pretty sure my entire generation loves little sister Zooey Deschanel in New Girl, but I have loved her since she stared in Elf 12 years ago (HOW was that 12 years ago?).
Aimee and Dani Song Aimee is one of my favorite bloggers and I featured her on my blog in November 2013 as one of my style icons, and I think this interior designer’s style has only gotten better. I love following her on Snapchat and the combination of food images, L.A. scenery, and fashion shots are amazing. Her sister, Dani, has legs for days and is a great compliment to her sister. Both girls are based in Los Angeles. I love the projects they are working on together like this Revolve clothing campaign.
Rooney and Kate Mara Another set of actresses on the up-and up I love how both girls bring seriousness and drama to very intense roles. Rooney Mara was scary, scary-good in The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo and I am excited for her next role. Kate followed in her little sister’s footsteps, and has held a variety of roles on the big screen but House of Cards has definitely been her crowning moment thus far in her career.
Venus and Serena Williams Strong, forceful, and incredibly powerful I grew up watching both of these superstar tennis players. In a period of eight years, between 2001 US Open and the 2009 Wimbledon, they met in eight Grand Slam singles finals and these sisters are always congratulatory and genuinely happy for which ever girl wins. Sure, Serena Williams has come out ahead with 19 Grand Slam wins but Venus’ seven wins are not too shabby either.
Kate and Pippa Middleton Perhaps the most famous pair on this list and neither sister really needs an introduction. I featured Kate as my first style icon and I can not wait for Royal Baby #2. I will also have to control my excitement when Pippa finally locks down a lucky man – can you imagine what her wedding dress is going to look like? Buttons anyone?
These six pairs of sisters are some of my favorites. I should not that there are a handful of famous girls that are purposely not on my list – Kardashian, Olsen, Knowles, Hiltons, Simpsons, and Fannings. Do you have a favorite from the list above?
