The world’s most stylish celebrity families

No hand-me-down jeans here

By ELLE team  January 23rd, 2018

Sure, style may be an expression of personality, but there’s no denying that stylish genes can be passed on. We’re watching the stylish couples that make stylish babies, like the Beckhams, to the fashion-forward children who help keep their parents on trend, like the Kapoors. And we’re not disappointed. These are the world’s most stylish celebrity families, those with impeccable taste that make the group photograph that much more attractive. Whether it’s tailored suits, red carpet dresses or just hanging with the kids, these folks have wardrobes that are prepped for any occasion.

The Kapoor-Khans

You can’t be actual royalty and Bollywood royalty without learning a few things along the way. Kareena Kapoor and Saif Ali Khan know that being a power couple entails power dressing. Kareena is known for sparking trends across the country as well as playing muse to her designer best friend, Manish Malhotra. And while we would love to credit Bebo for her husband’s sense of style, we think Saif may have got it from his mother, Sharmila Tagore. Tailored suits, bandhgalas worn with breeches and kurtas with trousers are what make up his Nawab wardrobe. Let’s not forget Taimur, who showed up in a custom Raghuvendra Rathore shirt to the airport — the kid’s already learning the importance of airport style. Special mention to Karisma Kapoor for being the stylish sister whose closet is definitely worth a raid.

The Kardashian-Wests

They may have a daughter called North together but before Kim had Kanye, her sense of style was definitely heading South. Ask anyone with a pair of Yeezys and they’ll tell you that Kanye’s nailed the winning formula for millennial street style. He’s also taken credit for Kim’s drastic style transformation from making her clean out her closet to putting her in touch with the right stylists and designers. Kanye also reportedly sent her an email keeping her up to date on the latest sunglass trends, making her get rid over her oversized sunnies. Kim and Kanye have both gone on record to say that North already picks out her own clothes and has her own sense of style. 

The Kapoors

There’s no denying Kapoor family get-togethers would involve discussing the latest fashions. Sunita Kapoor is possibly to be credited for the family’s fashion sense, if Anil Kapoor’s pre ’80s style is anything to go by. Sonam claims she grew up knowing the names of designers thanks to her costume designer mom, the same goes for her stylist sister Rhea. While Sunita made sure her family had a good fashion education and upbringing, they’ve branched out since then. Harshvardhan along with his dad are sneakerheads while Rhea and Sonam have started their own fashion label.  

The Beckhams 

A couple style that defined the ’90s. Outside of their day jobs, Posh and Becks were known for being ridiculously well-dressed. While Victoria Beckham has translated her sartorial superiority into a wildly successful fashion business, the footballer was one of the first in a breed of mega-atheletes who started hair trends on the field and fashion trends off it. Not only has their sense of style endured, it’s multiplied. The couple have 4 equally stylish children. 

The Smiths

Add impeccable sense of style to the long list of Smith family talents. Will Smith isn’t just a triple threat, he also raised triple threats, creating some compounded talent threat that we can’t even begin to understand. Jada Pinkett Smith and Will Smith have been gracing carpets together since the ’90s and have managed to keep up with trends to date. Their kids Trey, Jaden and Willow manage to hold up the family legacy and also set a few trends of their own. With Jaden being the face for Louis Vuitton’s womenswear collection and carrying his hair as an accessory on red carpets, the kid’s style is nothing if not individualistic.

The Obamas

Barack Obama didn’t just nail the presidential aesthetic , he also pulled off a baseball cap and tracks on his days off. While there are presidential stylists that deserve credit here, it’s Obama’s innate swag that helped him pull it off (even the 501 dad jeans). Michelle managed to steer away from the skirt-suits and still look every bit FLOTUS, expertly navigating the politics of fashion. Let’s not leave out her red carpet style which was on point thanks to the designers waiting in line to dress her. Obama’s daughters also managed to pull of age-appropriate dresses for events far above their maturity levels.

The Poonawalas

We’re just going to say it, Natasha Poonawala is unapologetically extra and we’re here for it. Feathers, hats, mirrors and fringe don’t even begin to describe her wardrobe. Not to mention she’s got every designer worth having in her closet and then some. Her husband Adar Poonawalla seems to be at par with his tailored suits and strong accessory game. All good indications that their kids won’t be too far behind.

The Sodhis

It’s not just that JJ Vallaya is the family’s go-to couturier, they’ve got style even when they’re not decked out in designer threads. Nafisa Ali Sodhi started wearing the designer’s garments when she was 22 years old and even used to help pick out crystals for them.
