OK, since I kinda stuck my foot in my mouth in the other thread I started about your YLF style icons (didn't mean to cause hurt feelings by singling people out!), how about I try to redeem myself? Let's see if we can try this again but with famous style icons this time!
What is your style (if you have a catchphrase or adjectives, even better!) And who are your celebrity style icons and why? They can be present day or from the past, movie stars or other celebrities or famous people. Do they mesh with your style or are you drawn to celebrities with very different styles from your own?
Having gone through the process of figuring out my style with your help, it looks like I am a Demure Bombshell. Other phrases to describe me are classic elegant, retro ladylike, and boho luxe, with a touch of romantic whimsy.
I am not much of a celebrity watcher. But I did some internet searching and here is who I came up with. Interestingly, I think I tend to be drawn to brunettes who dress in a very ladylike way with a hefty dose of retro glamour.
I think my #1 celebrity style icon right now is Zooey Deschanel. She likes romantic, ladylike vintage dresses and flared skirts with waist definition. She's a bit quirky and not afraid of patterns. I could see her being a spokeswoman for Anthropologie which is one of my new favorite stores! I think my style is very similar to hers. Here's a cotton commercial she did that shows some of her outfits (I love her closet!):
and her "stylebook" (from the cotton advertising website):
Also I like "pinup girl" bombshells like Bettie Page and Dita von Teese--at least their more demure outfits anyways. I like 40-50's style with a lot of polka dots and red and glamour.
I also like a touch of boho luxe, like Liv Tyler. And French chic like Marion Cotillard and Audrey Tatou. And I am also drawn to brunette gamines like Audrey Hepburn and Natalie Portman.
Here are some pictures to illustrate their styles and how they mesh with mine. I think I would wear any of these outfits myself if I could!
