Top ten fictional fashion icons

At the Telegraph Kate Finnigan tagged ten literary characters who have been her style inspiration, including:
Cecilia Lisbon, The Virgin Suicides by Jeffrey Eugenides

The Lisbon sisters from the book that was turned into a film by Sofia Coppola are possibly the coolest teenage girls in 20th century literature (apart from in the obviously uncool way that they all kill themselves). Lux may be the one who dates Trip Fontaine but Cecilia, the youngest at 13, wears a stained, chopped-off vintage 1920s wedding gown and bites her nails. Enough said.
Read about the other icons on the list.

The Virgin Suicides is among Patrick Ness's top ten "unsuitable" books for teenagers and Cathy Cassidy's top ten stories about sisters.
