The style Icons - Kate M., SJP, Audrey H. & Alex McQueen

Modern  Kate............

Kate Moss is a universal fashion icon. If she wears it, we will follow.  Kate has the ability to create trends because no matter what she chooses to throw on that day, she looks impossibly stylish and cool. Here are five rules to help you channel your inner Kate:
Go vintage. Kate rarely wears high-priced designer digs. Instead, she shops at second-hand stores and affordable retailers. It’s not only easier on the wallet, but will inevitably add orginality to your style .
Vintage inspired...............

Make sure it fits all of her clothes are flattering to her body. Kate is petite and often uses cinching belts over loose tops so that she won’t get lost under the fabric. Don’t forget that tailoring is always an option– your wardrobe will become doubly wearable.

Wear what you want. If you’re feeling down, go ahead and wear all black. Wake up feeling sexy? Go towards your brightest reds. Your clothing choices should suit your mood. It will add dynamic to your style and be a reflection of who you are, even if it’s just for that day.

Make it look like you didn’t try. Even though you did. Kate’s style is charming because it is unconditionally effortless. Don’t worry about matching your shoes to your handbag and let your eyeliner smudge. It’s sexy in an unconventional way.

Don’t get stuck in fashion ruts. Kate is a trendsetter because she doesn’t pay much attention to what other people are wearing. When everyone started wearing skinny jeans, she switched to high-waisted wide leg jeans.

Break rules. Kate never wears what is expected of her, and that’s why she stands out from the crowd. To the ball-gown appropriate Metropolitan Ball she wore skintight leather pants with such confidence that it didn’t seem out of place or underdressed at all– just fabulous.

Audrey Hepburn - Queen of classic style.

Audrey Hepburn was a legendary film actress. She is also one of the most quintessential fashion icons of all time. She captivated audiences with her effortless grace and aristocratic movements. During the 1950's, a time when curvaceous starlets like Marilyn Monroe and Elizabeth Taylor dominated film, Hepburn stood out with tall clean lines that emphasized her slender gamine physique. Everything she wore complimented her youthful figure. Hepburn's style was simple, yet glamorous and her classic nature still influences our fashion choices today.

Things You’ll Need:

• Little Black Dress
• Skinny Black Pants
• Ballet Flats
• Black top
• Full Skirt
• Cinched Waist Button-Up Collared Blouse
• Scarf
• Trench Coat
• Over-sized Sunglasses
• Tiara
• Pearls
• Elbow Length Gloves
• Large Floppy Hat
• Pill Box Hat
• Headbands

The elegant Audrey was the complete opposite of some of her contemporaries as Marilyn Monroe or Elizabeth Taylor, because, by fifties standards, she was too tall and too skinny.
Her look was entirely original and rather than creating false curves, her clothes accentuated her slenderness. Audrey was a captivating combination of glamour and sophistication with inocence and fragility.

Beauty Tips by Audrey Hepburn

•For attractive lips, Speak words of kindness.
•For lovely eyes, Seek out the good in people.
•For a slim figure, Share your food with the hungry.
•For beautiful hair, Let a child run his or her fingers through it once a day.
•For poise, Walk with the knowledge you'll never walk alone.
•People, even more than things, have to be restored, renewed, revived, reclaimed and redeemed; Never throw out anybody.
•Remember, if you ever need a helping hand, you'll find one at the end of your arm.
•As you grow older you will discover that you have two hands; one for helping yourself, the other for helping others.
•The beauty of a woman is not in the clothes she wears, the figure that she carries, or the way she combs her hair. The beauty of a woman must be seen from in her eyes, because that is the doorway to her heart, the place where love resides.
•The beauty of a woman is not in a facial mole, but true beauty in a Woman is reflected in her soul. It is the caring that she lovingly gives, the passion that she knows.
•And the beauty of a woman, with passing years only grows!
