What everyone loves about Sophia Loren, I think, is that she was so unabashedly herShe was shamelessly sexy and embraced glitz and glamour. She wore it all: prints, bold color, tight dresses, feathers, low backs, big jewels, and turbans. The last picture is probably my favorite. Sophia had such incredible bone structure that she could pull off a turban, but she made it even more dramatic with fringed fabric and statement earrings. You can’t help but love her, or at least respect her. She had the rare ability to take a risk and make it her own.

Grace Kelly was a classy, classy woman. She always handled herself with grace (no pun intended) and poise. When it came to her outfits, she kept it simple. Her pieces were always well-tailored and all flattered her. Make it your mission to find an incredible tailor and to become friends with them. Test your Chosen One with a few smaller tasks before doing anything major. Once you know you like them, treat them well. Tip nicely (if appropriate), always be polite and kind, and get them gifts for the holidays. Your tailor can transform a bargain buy into something that looks as if it was made especially for you. Grace knew the true power of tailoring, and she has given us an example to follow. Plus, she worked a LBD, which her gives bonus points in my book!

Edie Sedgwick is, for better or for worse, an unforgettable icon. While I don’t suggest you imitate her life, there is lots that can be learned from her style. Edie knew how to work the basics and accessorize with zeal. Try channeling Edie with a simple outfit and jaw-dropping jewelry. (For bonus points, rock a nude lip.)

The thing I find so great about Elizabeth Taylor  is her belief in drama. She was a woman who took pride in how she presented herself to the world. She made every occasion a big occasion, just by the way she dressed. It didn’t matter whether she was going to a gala or playing with her children; her hair was done, her makeup was on, and her lipstick was pristine. We have lost this pride in more recent times. Do you think Elizabeth Taylor would say, “Oh, I’m just staying in the house. Sweatpants will be fine.”? No! She would have dressed with pride, because she valued the way she presented herself to the world, even if the world wasn’t going to see her. Emulate Elizabeth by adding a little drama to your wardrobe. Make it your mission to wear one dramatic piece each day this week and swear off sweatpants, even as pajamas. It is much easier to feel glamorous when wearing nice things.

Audrey & friend.....

Audrey Hepburn is probably the classic style icon. Most of what she wore was either black or white, and almost everything was a very classic silhouette. Think of the cigarette pants in Funny Face, the LBDs in Breakfast at Tiffany’s (which you must watch, by the way), and the crisp men’s shirts she wore in her off-screen life. She always looked comfortable and put-together: but perhaps her most stylish qualities were her beliefs about beauty. She believed that being kind to others and being a good person was a quality that transcended style. Emulate Audrey, not through your clothes (though that would still be a great idea), but through your actions. Be a happy girl, a kind girl. After all, the happiest girls are the prettiest girls.

Brigitte Bardot was one of the first true bohemians. Her mussed hair, complete with big barrel curls, added a touch of personality to everything she wore. Her trademark winged and smudged eyeliner, big lashes, and pale pink pout worked for her, and she knew it! She was a woman  who worked her curves. She wore clothes that emphasized her gorgeous figure, and she always looked effortless. Brigitte had a distinct signature style, mixing classic pieces (the trench coat, striped shirt, silk scarf, and boots) that artfully clashed with her personality. That was part of what made her intriguing. Try channeling Brigitte by pairing classic and unique pieces together for a look that is all your own.
