My Style Icons

Flipping through a fashion magazine the other day, I found where some folks were asked about who their style icon was or had been. They asked people who were behind the scenes of fashion; editors, publishers, photographers, contributing writers.

The article made me stop and think about who my style icons were or are. The first person that comes to mind is my grandmother Kate.

My grandma Kate always reminded me of Katharine Hepburn who I would have to say is one of my style icons too.


She had sass and Moxie fo’sho! She is probably where I started my love for wide-legged trousers and high-collared shirts (or turtlenecks). She could pull off that masculine look and still look like a woman. And I mean really, look at her wearing that mink coat with blue jeans! I love it.

But what about current style icons? I’d have to say Angelina Jolie. I’ve always liked her style. Angelina brings that current edge. She’s normally in black or grey when she is out and about with the kids. Skinny leather jeans with a gray cashmere wrap; love it!



Of course she is always stunning on the red carpet as well. You’ll have to Google both Angelina and Katharine to view their images. Be careful though, you might get lost in all that glamour!

Oh, especially look up the pictures of Angelina Jolie with the Queen. Oh my! The one where she is made Honorary Dame. She wore a regal dove grey skirt suit by Ralph & Russo. Stunning!

Both Katharine and Angelina are classic style icons. Sophistication with just enough edge. Soft and feminine with a nod to the potent and commanding spirit. A bit minimalistic with a natural tendency for the modish.

Who is your style icon?

Thanks for reading and show me Your Moxie!

  1. I loved Coco for suits but definitely Audrey Hepburn for casual. Even with short boyish hair she pulled off such femininity. Now that my hair is boy short, I hope I can pull it off too. I also love Sophia Loren. Thank you for joining my linky #MidLifeLuv.

  2. I love Kate Hepburn’s style – Angelina, not so much. I think it’s important to be inspired by other women’s style but ultimately you should be your own fashion icon.
