To me a Fashion Icon is a trendsetter, original, and timeless.
This are my top favorite women, who in my opinion have attributed and influence so many others in their time and beyond.
Coco Chanel is easily identifiable but the signature Double C interconnected logo, and is associated with Gabrielle Bonheur's revolutionary style.
She emerged as a designer in a time were women dressed extravagant and over the top.
Her sophisticated, classic, and simplistic style was incorporated by using Jersey in women's clothing, which was unheard of at the time.
She basically coined the phrase "Little Black Dress" and introduced dress pants into women sports wear.
Coco Chanel has always and will forever be my favorite designer, I have been obsessed with Chanel since a young age.
To me she represents the epitome of fashion and how chic one can be with the least possible effort.
Let's just say once I hit 40 I will rake of Chanel No 5 and get buried with my vintage Chanel purse next to me!
Best known for being Andy Warhol's muse during the 60s, she was a socialite who came to New York City to begin a career in modeling. She was put into a metal institution for anorexia and died tragically at the young age of 28.
Her beauty and charm captivated audiences in short films and she had such a superstar presence.
Vogue shot her in tights, a leotard, and a baggy sweater performing dance moves.
I love Edie Sedgwick! Her style was fun and unique. Her life story is quite sad but her fashion and makeup are still easily identifiable today. Some of her signature pieces were large earrings, a lot of strip attire, and leggings or tights with a fur jacket to top it all off.
Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis
My favorite First Lady in the History of the United States, Jackie O encompassed the ideal image of what a mother was in early 60's. She was a socialite and a beloved mother.
Her fashion statements came in different forms, all in all reflected her elegance and grace. Some of her signature looks consisted of high waisted dresses, white gloves, hats, head scarfs and big sunglasses. Even her casual outfits were effortless such as pairing dress pants with trench coats, but she would put the look together in a way that made her iconic in American society.
By far one of my favorite present day Fashion Icons, Nicole Richie has gone through so many hardships in her life to over come all of that and becoming the woman she is today just demonstrates the type of person she is.
My obsession with Nicole Richie grew during the first season of the Simple Life. I loved her laid back and hilarious sense of humor.
When her style started to change and when she lost weight everyone started to take notice in her fashion sense.
Basically I want her entire wardrobe! I don't think I've ever seen an outfit on her that I didn't like. Her clothing and jewelry line are amazing!
I'm so happy I meet her twice! It was a dream come true and I blushed so much!
I grew up watching Full House and I loved the Olsen twins. I watched all of their movies was a child and always envied their amazing style and hair.
I love the fact both girls have a distinct style. Ashley is more polished, while Mary-Kate style is more controversial and often referred to as a "Bag Lady".
I love her style, it can be labeled so many different ways but to me it's just a reflection of her personal taste through her clothing. I love the baggy t-shirts, long shirts, high heels during the day, over sized purses, and loads of vintage jewelry.
I have meet The Oslen Twins at NYC Fahions Night Out in 2010 and they are so petite and sweet! and of course their outfits were fierce as hell!
To me Olivia is the definition of Upper-East Side fashion. Even though some people can argue she played the "bitch" in The City one can not deny her amazing fashion sense.
She is a socialite and thus becoming exposed to various designers all her life. What I love the most about her style is the way she pairs up pieces of clothing together. She has a flare of making any outfit effortlessly elegant.
She is featured on various best dress list and her passion for fashion can also be found in her profession. She has various connections with designers and magazine editors.
She is quite the "It Girl" of New York City.
