Style Icon: Rachel McAdams

Rachel McAdams‘ latest breakout role as Ani Bezzerides in True Detective has earned her critical praise and more fans too. This season of True Detective is proving to be as dark, or maybe even darker, than the first season. But this season also has that same grit and heart-pounding plot. If you haven’t seen this latest season yet, it’s best that you do. The finale just aired so now is the perfect time to catch up and binge watch.

Her amazing character and season on True Detective aside, Rachel McAdams has been consistently pleasing fans, audiences, and critics alike over the years. From her iconic roles as Regina George in Mean Girls and Allie in the Notebook to more serious parts in movies like Midnight in Paris, Red Eye, and Southpaw.

Her style is just as good as her acting chops, trust me. She has a sophisticated and feminine style but her looks always have a modern twist. You will do well to get inspired by her style savvy. If you love her movies, her style will have you head over heels. See some of her best looks below:


This shot from her Marie Claire June cover gives me serious hair envy. I mean, how stunning does she look in this textured and tousled bob. Not to mention, the seriously sexy asymmetrical red hot dress that she’s sporting.


Gotta love that delicate floral print on the dress she wore on the cover. I also love the multiple ear studs, so edgy when worn with such a girly frock like this one.


Rachel McAdams had some truly amazing outfits during her press tour for Southpaw. But this one is my fave, since it is such a great spin on the LBD. The off-shoulder and peek-a-boo midriff detail looks so now.


Need proof that simple is the chicest way to go? Just look at this Met Gala look. A nude blush column gown stands out even more when paired with the right hair color, in this case it was a beautiful hue of auburn.

Distressed jeans plus motorcycle boots usually equal rugged style, but Rachel flipped the script and made that combo more glam with the addition of a classic camel trench coat and a chunky gold chain neck piece.

Sticking to her signature red hue, but this time with some seductive nude into the mix, Rachel McAdams proves her red carpet royalty status in this gown. The lace and the detailing is heavenly.
