Default Fashion Icons

My boss and I were lamenting the fact that there does not seem to be anyone currently, who truly is a fashion icon. Years ago, Jackie Kennedy, Audrey Hepburn, Cary Grant, were people, who dressed impeccably, and had people emulating them

Jackie wore a pill box hat, and had a flip, Audrey had a gamin hairdo, and wore capri pants, Cary wore a tuxedo, like he was born to it..[swoon]


Who, in your opinion, if anyone, fits the bill, in THIS day and age?

I suppose it would have to be the weathly young fashionistas and movie celebs that grace Vogue, Harper's Bazaar, Elle, and W Magazines.

People seem to dress much more casual in general. But then it also depends where you live.

People in living in the east (e.g.New York) tend to dress UP more. People in California...really are casual. But there is also a difference in dress between Southern California (L.A.) and Northern California (S.F.)
Maybe it has to do with weather too. ()

Let's see a few I can think of are:

Sarah Jessica Parker
Catherine Zita Jones
Nicole Kidman
Paris Hilton
George Clooney


Some may not wear what we like, escpecially the second to the last one, but they do set and display some of the latest trendy fashions or wear top designer wear the way we only wish we could.

Take care,
Mike

I'm on Mike's wavelength - not just Sarah Jessica Parker, but ALL the women from Sex and the City. Johnny Depp, Pierce Brosnan....but yes, Princess Di probably the last notable.
