They are multi-million-dollar talents who rock the world of music. But they are more than singing sensations and world-class performers. They are style icons in their own rights as well, drawing dedicated followers as much with their music as with their image. Some, like Beyonce, and Gwen Stefani even have their own fashion labels.

Inside singles out some rock star styles you can steal to glam up your look.

1. Embrace Your Curves – Beyonce

All curves and womanly power, Beyonce is one who is not afraid to embrace her inner diva. The Vanity Fair magazine’s 2013 International Best Dressed List honoree’s style is old Hollywood glamour with a touch of sass all her own.

The Beyonce look is sexy and feminine; always provocative, never crass. She shows skin but it is always balanced with eye-catching style details. To recreate her look, go for second-skin dresses in solid colours with subtle yet stunning designs like eye-catching cut-outs in the front.

Halters and peek-a-boo panels are also Beyonce favourites and the Maegan Crisscross-Bodice Gown from BCGC Max Azaria combine the two effortlessly

Keep the neckline interesting - halter-necks and plunging necklines are very Beyonce. Balance the sexy quotient. Have peek-a-boo panels rather than letting it all hang out to keep things stylish.

Keep accessories to the minimum. Beyonce is rarely bedecked. Let the body and the dress speak for themselves. Finally, elongate the silhouette with high heels. On or off the stage, Beyonce is never without her heels.

2. Make that Rainbow Connection – Katy Perry

Colours, flowers, and vintage dresses typify Katy Perry’s look. Think funny, sweet, and smart when you are dressing like this award-winning singer-songwriter. Perry is known to be a little kooky and sometimes over-the-top in her style choices. But there is always a girlishness with an edge to her fashion statements.

The co-founder and lead singer of No Doubt has a tough-girl image that is as hip as it is unpredictable. Pants worn with an attitude, tops that show off toned abs, funky, eclectic - that is how this rock princess rolls it.
