My Style Icons/Crushes

There are a lot of women that I idolize for their seemingly effortless glamor and style... I am not in a dream world though. I know that celebrities and such have people around them all the time, letting them know what looks good and what doesn't, but I feel like the following ladies, would have it under control even if they never had a stylist. There is personal style to account for too... which is what I admire. Also there is timeless... if you are timeless, you are timeless. Ya dig? These are ladies I try to emulate whenever possible. Some are new to my list and some are forever...
Hello junior high crush turned major music star and designer. Gwen Stefani has been on my radar since Spiderwebs and while I prefer her style much more now then when it was a bikini top and wide legged pants, I have loved her since legit, I was 12 or 13. She is glamorous with an edge and I LOVE the platinum blond/ red lipstick combo and let's face it, Gwen rocks it! Love you Gwenie-poo.

Emma Watson is a new entry on my style icon list but girl, ever since she got that pixie short hair cut, I have been smitten as a kitten. She looks so much more mature and high fashion then her Hermoine days let her be. She has a rocking little bod, a slamming haircut and that enviable ability to look good in almost everything. It's kind of creepy I am crushing on her though, seeing as how I am 10 years older than her (me softly weeping).

You have to have been living under a rock to miss my obsession with Rachel Roy... She is absolutely gorgeous, she is so super stylish and she happens to design some of my favorite clothes. She has got that certain something. After recently seeing her on Project Runway, and hearing her speaking voice, I imagine her to be super sweet. We would, of course, be best friends upon meeting one another.

You also would have to be living under a rock if you missed my new style crush, Evan Rachel Wood... I swear I paid her no attention until she got that haircut (see recurring theme) and now I can't keep my eyes off of what she is wearing on the red carpet. She is beautiful, with a bone structure some would kill for... and what? She looks ab fab in menswear inspired looks. I do love a good vest.

Marilyn, sweet Marilyn... Again, I have always loved her, since I was ever able to register seeing a photograph of her. The blond bombshell look has been something I have always wanted to BE. You know what else I love about her? She was a size 10... in your face, stick thins! She was beautiful and curvy and wore that red lipstick like a champ.

So what do you think? Who are your style/fashion icons?



  1. ooo my favourites of those are emma watson & marilyn monroe but I have to say evan rachel woods has totally changed her look and is almost unrecognisable (to me) she looks good!!

  2. Audrey Hepburn, Kate Middleton, Kate Winslet, Emma Stone. Sigh.

  3. I really love Gwen . She is one of a kind :)
