10 Style Icons of Our Lives

  • Audrey Hepburn

    Poised, elegant and witty, Audrey is one of the biggest style icons of all time. Most famous for her little black (shift) dress and gloves in Breakfast at Tiffanys, Hepburn was always a fan of clean lines and simplicity. When we think of Audrey, we think capri pants, white button-down mens shirts, ballet flats and turtlenecks. Owning what she had, Hepburn was all about accentuating her tall, thin frame rather than hiding it--and we think thats timeless.

  • Jackie Kennedy American royalty in every sense of the word, Jackie Kennedy won the hearts of people across the globe as the glamorous, confident, style-savvy First Lady. Jackie never followed trends (she wore sleeveless when no one did), but once she found something she liked, she stuck with it. She favored Chanel jackets, A-line skirts, brooches, pill box hats, boat necks, and the now ubiquitous, oversized sunglasses.
  • Marilyn Monroe Making her fashion impact in a much different way than Audrey or Jackie, Marilyn was all bombshell all the time. Monroe dressed for men, not women and that meant curve-hugging dresses that accentuated her figure, platinum blonde hair and bright red lips. Although Monroe was no shrinking violet, she rarely wore loud prints or bright colors, sticking with blacks, creams and champagne colors.
  • Diane Keaton

    Perhaps we can thank Annie Hall for the recent menswear trend for women. Nobody did androgyny like Diane. Vests, ties, baggy pants and hats. Keaton pulled all off with girlish cuteness and womanly sophisticationand still does to this day.

    Always an original, Dianes found a unique genre that works for her and, well, works it.

  • Tina Turner Not only has she left an ineffaceable mark on the music industry, but Tinas left an equally profound mark on the fashion industry. With the help of pal Bob Mackie, Tinas larger-than-life ensemblesfeathers, plunging necklines, chains, uber-short dressesalways went well with her wild hair, great legs and bombshell sex appeal. All hail to the Queen of Rock n Roll.
  • Princess Diana Arguably one of the most scrutinized women ever to live, Princess Di was a fashion icon before and after her death. Managing to make anything look royal, Diana favored bold colors (red), ball gowns, tailored suits and loads of designer labels (Versace, Christian Lacroix, Ungaro and Chanel to name a few). Her hair was often cropped and pearls usually graced her neck. Princess Di also played a big part in the shoulder pad trend so popular in the 80s thanks?
  • Lauren Hutton Gap-toothed, tousle-haired and bronze-skinned, Lauren was the ultimate natural and masculine chic fashion icon. Despite her supermodel status, Hutton often sported wide-legged trousers, mens button down shirts, safari jackets and panama hats. Unlike Diane Keaton though, Lauren often made her clothes look sexy with plunging necklines cinched-in waists.
  • Grace Kelly Has there ever been a woman more elegant and classy? Grace Kelly epitomized sophistication and clean style. Never a hair out of place, Kellys dresses were perfectly tailored with neat hair and minimal jewelry. And who could forget her famous crocodile handbag? She used the oversized bag to hide her pregnancy and shortly after, in 1956, The Kelly Bag was born.
