Amongst the list, Ariana Grande comes in at the second most fashionable celebrity of 2022. The famed singer and actress narrowly misses out on the top spot. The term ‘Ariana Grande outfits,’ which is searched a whopping average of 12,000 times per month in America, is searched 21,610 times a month.

Billie Eilish, Kim Kardashian and Lady Gaga follow the most fashionable in the Top 5 list. It’s the latter part of the list that we find most shocking. The late Princess Diana ranks at No. 9 on the list. We can thoughtfully conclude that Queen Elizabeth’s death and Netflix’s “The Crown” series contributed to her influence. Also, the beloved Mrs. Diana happened to throwing many fits.

Now, Britney Spears is our girl, but we didn’t realize fans were headed to Google for “Britney’s Fashions.” According to the research, the famous singer landed at number 15 on the list.
