Pharrell Williams, Ne-Yo, Victoria Beckham and British royal Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge are among those expected to be next year’s “most influential” trendsetters.

The “Happy” hitmaker topped the men’s survey, ahead of R&B singer Ne-Yo at two and rap mogul Sean “Diddy” Combs at three, while Justin Timberlake, Jay Z and David Beckham have also made the cut for the top 10 most fashionable males.

Prince William’s wife, Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge was voted No. 1 in the female countdown, with pop star-turned-fashion designer Victoria Beckham coming in second place.

Pregnant Gwen Stefani rounded out the top three on the E-Score consumer research poll, which was compiled based on a slew of celebrity culture factors, from the stars’ fashion sense and music preferences to their cars, diets and home decorating skills.

Jennifer Lopez, Heidi Klum and Sara Jessica Parker are also considered to have influence over consumers’ decisions on styles, trends and fashion in the year ahead.
