Who are style icons? Are they even real or just a smart marketing and PR? I don’t remember reading any fashion magazine which didn’t mention al least one paragraph about style or fashion icons. If you or your friends adore someone’s style, is it right to name that person a style or fashion icon? Audrey Hepburn? Coco Chanel? Kate Moss or Brigitte Bardot? Grace Kelly? Bianca Jagger? Who are real style icons?
Oh My!!!! She is amazing! A great woman, fashion icon, business woman! Iris is absolutely fabulous! She is such an inspiration. In her 90 years Iris is still full of energy and ideas. I admire her every look, she always look extraordinary. In 2005 Metropolitan Museum had an exhibition about the style of Iris Apfel called Rara Avis (Rare Bird): The Irreverent Iris Apfel. Where everyone could take a look at the most stunning items from Apfel’s closet. What do you say?
And here are my favorite photos from exhibition in MET in 2005. So let’s take a look into Apfel’s closet!

These 2 words are going with us through all our life. Almost every fashion magazine is telling us about fashion icons of past, present and future. But it is a very tricky question for me…style icons among celebrities???…they sure do exist, but with the help of stylists, male-up artists, agents… It is very hard to call someone a style icon if she or he uses the help of personal stylist. We all have bad days, when we don’t want to put on the make-up , nice clothes…or we just don’t care what other people are going to think about us. Happens really often with me:) But to me, style icons should look like thousands eyes are watching them all the time. Style icon can’t afford to have a bad hair or make-up day.
So, style icons of past and present, of last century and nowadays…Your thoughts?
Actually when we talk about style icons, it’s easier to me to think about last century. The first name that pops out in my mind is …Audrey Hepburn. Even till now, she is the perfect example of perfect style. And it is not only about clothes, it is about being a woman!!!
About nowadays…hard to say. Media tells us about Blake Lively, Kim Kardashian, Emma Watson, Anne Hathaway, Kate Moss, Victoria Beckham as about the new style icons. Who is a style icon for you?
