Millions of young girls around the world look to Niki and Gabi DeMartino for fashion ideas and inspiration on their popular Youtube channel NikiandGabiBeauty, which has 557,054 subscribers and a whopping 34,444,320 channel views! But who do the DeMartino sisters — who are twins and Part-Cuban! — look up to as their style icons?
Here, the talented and funny 19-year-old fashionistas from Lehigh Valley, Pennsylvania (who have very different styles — Gabi is girly chic, while Niki prides herself on being more bold-boho-hipster! — dish to EXCLUSIVLee.com about their five favorite celeb style icons!
Nikis Pick: Demi Lovato
She isn’t afraid to try new styles or go for different hair colors and I admire that about her. Style isn’t about being one dimensional, but constantly trying the new trends/fads. She inspires me to take fashion risks and to just go for it!
Gabis Pick: Vanessa Hudgens
Although her style is bohemian and I’m more chic, she stills gives off that innocent girly vibe (that) I admire. With my style, I always try to somehow keep it cute and girly.
Nikis Pick: Kylie Jenner
I love Kylies style. She’s always making a statement with her style, whether it be black lipstick or blue hair.
Gabis Pick: Ariana Grande
A lot of people say we have (similar) styles and I think that’s because we both have old souls. Ariana always brings a retro feel to her outfits and because I (also) love styles from the past, I try to (make) them apparent in my outfit choices.
While the twins’ styles could NOT be more different, there’s one celeb whose fashion choices they can’t shake off: Taylor Swift!
We both love Taylors effortless casual cute style because she’s the only person who can wear a romper or keds and make it look chic at the same time.
Now that they’ve conquered Youtube, the girls hope to start a clothing line, act and star in their own reality show and they’ll continue to offer young girls advice on fashion including how to buy GREAT looks on a budget.
The best website to shop from on a budget is definitely Tobi, says Gabi. They offer (a) huge variety of styles from girly/feminine chic to bold hipster, which really fits well for us since we have a huge difference in our styles and all of their prices are very affordable!
