Style Icons: Then and Now
Well, can’t really blame you, we have our own distinct fashion taste not to mention the different types of personalities. Be it elegant and classy, extreme and adventurous or as simple as faded jeans, shirt and rubber shoes.
Here’s my list starting from number five down to the most influential. Hope you enjoy.
|"For being different its easy, but for being unique its a complicated thing"|
Lady Gaga (Stefani Joanne Angelina Germanotta)
In this generation, who wouldn’t know who lady Gaga is? I can understand if you didn’t know who Audrey Hepburn and Marilyn Monroe, but Lady Gaga. She is a household name.
Her music is a must try, but what makes her really famous is because of her quirky and eccentric fashion style, from her hair and make-up, fashion jewelry and clothes, up to her shoes. If there is going to be a wholesale women’s shoes sale that would feature all Lady Gaga’s shoes, I’ll definitely be the first in line.
|"He's so Lucky to be Going out with Me"|
Kate Middleton (Catherine Elizabeth Middleton)
Prince William the successor of the throne, Duke of Cambridge husband of Kate. Isn’t this enough excuse to be a fashion icon? Being the Duchess whom everyone look out to, she definitely needs to be classy and fashionable. But wait, even before she became prince Harry’s other half Middleton was already considered as a fashion icon.
Always nominated as Best dressed, who wouldn’t when this lady sure knows how to mix and matched couture pieces, fashion jewelry and high street retail fashion. Famous for wearing lace and of course her wedding and engagement ring.
|"Big Girls Need Big Diamonds"|
Elizabeth Taylor (Dame Elizabeth Rosemond “Liz” Taylor)
Glamour, beauty and elegance this are the trademark’s of Elizabeth Taylor, a lady way too modern for her age and time. No let me rephrase that, a woman who knows who she is and what she wants.
Taylor was known foe her distinctive violet eyes, her fashion jewelry and clothes whose straps always slips off her shoulders and a necklace way too low it shows her cleavage. She was also the person whom the reason why mini skirts became overly famous way back 1970’s up until this generation.
|“Imperfection is beauty, madness is genius and it's better to be absolutely ridiculous than absolutely boring.|
Marilyn Monroe (Norma Jeane Mortensen Baker)
The women with sexy curves, killer legs, full lovely lips and flirty eyes, Marilyn Moroe, America’s Sex symbol is one of the best and most looked at fashion icons of all time.
Who would be against a beautiful, lovely and intelligent (though she played as a dumb blonde on most of her roles) woman with a seductive character armed with her killer curves, blonde curls, a lovely face with dramatic eyelashes, aristocratically curved brows and bright red lips.
Her most popular fashion style for me I guess is during her movie “The Seven Year Itch” where she wore a white halter dress showing why she became America’s sex symbol.
|"I'll never get used to anything. Anybody that does, they might as well be dead"|
Audrey Hepburn (Audrey Kathleen Ruston)
For me Audrey Hepburn is the most influential fashion icon of all time. She gained her popularity during the 2oth century film “Breakfast at Tiffany’s” when she played the role of Holly Golightly a New York hooker.
Why she became my top fashion icon? Simple, “the little black dress” that almost all woman have in their closet was Audrey Hepburn’s trademark, it was designed by Hubert de Givenchy for her role as Holly Golightly and became a fashion mush have then and now.
