My style icons

First of all, I want to thank Isis from The Fedora Lounge for this blog post inspiration. Sometimes I can't decide on what to write about, and I think this is a great suggestion.

Coco Chanel.

Now this woman had an interesting life. I am not going in-depth about it now, but anyone who's interested should watch the movie Coco Avant Chanel. I also know there was something shady going on in WWII, but since that's all rumors I give her the benefit of the doubt. (unlike Hugo Boss)

I would literally die for a Chanel suit. I am not really a labelyouknowwhat, but that suit is so elegant and timeless. LOVE it. The original line she designed is still the influence for modern Chanel designs. Therefore I also like a lot of the new designs by Karl Lagerfeld.

Dale Evans

I've got this fascination with 'glamour cowgirls', who were very popular in the 40's and 50's. (Especially in the USA) One of my favorites is Dale Evans Rogers. (married with Roy Rogers) She can ride, sing, shoot and always has a clever answer to anything. But just look at those outfits! Yeeeeeehaw :D

Betty Grable

 Betty Grable's hair is pure art. I've used her pictures many times for inspiration, and still do. She actually wore a lot of hairpieces, since her own hair was very fine.

Anyway that doesn't make a difference to the art that is Betty's hair.

I hope you enjoyed this post!
