Wear Anna Wintour around your neck

They really are this season's must have accessory.

From Anna Wintour's trademark bob, to Karl Lagerfeld's powdered wig and Alber Ebaz's square glasses, fashion's power players have such distinctive style, it's no wonder they've inspired books, films, and even Spongebob Squarepants and Simpsons cartoons. And just in time for London Fashion Week, we've stumbled across these adorable pendants that capture fashion icons in jewellery form.

Handcrafted in Paris, the enamel necklaces by Defiles from Paris show the world's most iconic fashion designers and front row regulars, from YSL to Suzy Menkes (the fashion doyenne at the International Herald Tribune), dangling from a chain in miniature.

ABOVE: Anna Wintour and Karl Lagerfeld.

BELOW: Sonia Rykiel, Lanvin's Alber Ebaz and Azzedine Alaia

BELOW: Suzy Menkes and Yves Saint Laurent.

Choose one to show your love for your true style hero, or pile several high and impress with your fashion nous. We can't decide between the simply adorable Alber Ebaz from Lanvin, or the mini Anna Wintour - much less imposing that small.

The necklaces start from around £130 from myflashtrash.com, but for the ultimate Karl Lagerfeld aficionado there's a luxe rosary chain that the Kaiser himself would be proud of for £220.
