The love affair between celebrities and fashion designers is nothing new. Since the days of Elizabeth Taylor and Valentino, designers have selected stars to be their muse (aka unpaid spokesmodel). Can you tell we’re totally jealous? Yeah, just a little. But who wouldn’t want to chronicle their globetrotting on Instagram (a la Kim Kardashian and Rachel Roy) or constantly obsess over each other (“You’re amazing, Olivier Rousteing!” “No, you’re amazing, Rihanna”) on Twitter? The truth is, we’re just mad we don’t have BFFs to create amazing clothes–free of charge!–for us.
But alas, if we can’t befriend a high-end designer ourselves, the least we can do is envy admire their relationships with celebs from afar. Check out 16 of our favorite celebrities-designer besties and try your hardest not to be jels.
