i decided to make a little post about the fashion icons from the past. Some of them are bigger icons, some smaller. Who knows maybe you don't agree with me on that at all. This is just my opinion.
Jean Seberg - American actress. Her style was very casual, something you may see today in streetstyle. She wore stripy (sailor style) blouses, tight pants, A-cut skirts and ballerians. She was elegant, yet a bit tomboyish. I love how her short hair really brings out the shape of her face.
I guess if you have a bag named after you, you must be an icon?
(Hermes Birkin bag)
American actress and singer Jane Birkin's style was influenced by men's fashion. It didnt matter how baggy the clothes looked on her, she always looked sexy.
Everlasting beauty - Sophia Loren. This Italian actress loved luxury. Diamonds, fur - you name it, she loved it. Classical beauty & always very feminine. She was often seen wearing red & white, it suited very well with her exotic look.
Brigette Bardot - Move over Marylin Monroe, there was another blonde bombshell. French Actress Brigitte Bardot, the 60s were rocking with beauty it's no wonder nowadays we try to imitate them. Brigitte Bardot an Actress, Model, Singer and Animal Rights Activist, and stylish at one point of her style was an icon of France... She knew how to pull of anything, the bee hive hair, the knee boots, the short skirts, the headbands, she made you want to be blonde. She had a thought that less is more.
What would fashion today be without the amazing Coco Chanel? She is one of the biggest influencers of the fashion world. Clothes she wore were inspired by men’s fashion, she encouraged women to wear comfy clothes and leave corsets behind.
Grace Kelly - always very feminine and elegant. She looked good in whatever she wore and she always did it with such a class. In my opinion she is a true icon from the past.
