Let's talk about style icons. Don't tell me you don't have one because everyone does, even if they won't admit it. Everything has been done, recycled, borrowed, or copied at some point.
My style icons you ask? First and foremost, JKO, Jackie Kennedy Onassis. Everything from Oleg Cassini, to the pillbox hats, to the love of French fashion houses, to classic American style screams Jackie Kennedy. JKO made the Whitehouse fashionable and married (and put up with) JFK, which is no small feat. Plus, she spoke like a billion languages and rode horses and always looked the part. Ladies, whenever you put on those over sized sunglasses that make you look fabulous, thank Jackie O.
Another fashion icon? Audrey Hepburn hands down. This woman was so fashionable that the GAP named a pant for her posthumously! You know you're a style icon when....
A couple modern style icons would include Kate Bosworth, Ashley Olsen (sorry Mary-Kate), and Blake Lively. I love classic American style (think Michael Kors), with a little Givenchy thrown in for fun.
