Fashion Icons

Elizabeth Taylor

 Now I know there’s a billion fashionistas that advise the less make-up the better, or remember to remove one accessory before you leave the house. Well, they must have never heard of Elizabeth Taylor. Though she was a natural beauty with her jet black hair and perfectly shaped eyebrows, she had a passion for fashion.  Her look consisted of an amazing collection of jewelry, vibrant shades on her lids that were lined in black, and her beautiful glamorous gowns, think deep regal colors like emeralds, purples, reds. Not to say she couldn’t pull off a casual look, because she mostly definitely could.
“Big girls need big diamonds.” –Elizabeth Taylor

Audrey Hepburn

The girly-classic look starts here. The basics with one or two statement pieces. Little black dress, pearls, and a pair of shades and you can’t go wrong. Think minimalist: Pastels … turtle necks, trench coats, Capri pants, and flats… simple make-up and jewelry.  Even in a men’s style shirt, she could manage to add her touch and turn heads.
 "My look is attainable. Women can look like Audrey Hepburn by flipping out their hair, buying the large sunglasses, and the little sleeveless dresses." – Audrey Hepburn

Marilyn Monroe
Style and sex icon, blonde bombshell Marilyn Monroe will always be remembered for so many things, especially for flaunting her hourglass figure in beautiful fitted outfits and heels. Now for Monroe think sweetheart necks, pencil skirts, fitted sweaters all  in pastels and neutrals such as white, black, shades of beige and cream, and of course red. For make-up she’s known for beautiful skin with sultry eyes and of course lips in red.
I don't know who invented high heels, but all women owe him a lot.” –Marilyn Monroe
