One thing you will always learn flipping through magazines is how they try and make every page and each photo shoot look so different from the last, then when you come across a true icon and style queen there is no effort and it is the smallest change that makes the biggest difference.
When the world met Audrey Hepburn we learnt how to put on a Givenchy gown or a striped tshirt and hat but still make it look chic. “I believe in manicures. I believe in overdressing. I believe in primping at leisure and wearing lipstick. I believe in pink. I believe happy girls are the prettiest girls. I believe that tomorrow is another day, and. . . I believe in miracles” Audrey Hepburn
Jackie Kennedy had a similar style effect and as her husband John F. Kennedy's political career grew so did her fashion. Jackie and Audrey were both elegantly tailored and had their signature accessories like hats, scarfs and sunglasses.
The most amazing influence these women had on the 60's was their strong hold on themselves, they knew who they were in such a flamboyant time and kept each of their heads held high in every outfit which made everything they wore look that much more sublime.
There has been a lot said, whispered and praised about Kate Moss but one thing I shall never do is judge her as she has never changed since day one and that is why I think she is still gracing the cover of Vogue for her 35th time.
Another perfect part of her super model, street style years is her love of hats. Kate knows how to wear and rock a pair of gumboots as good as a top hat which a lot of us will never have the gift of, I think you have to be born with those abilities. Miss Moss has the capability to combine rock chick with feminine charm or hippy chic with vintage elegance.
Her abilities are endless and we are about to see more of what she is capable of when she releases her new clothing line on Topshop which she will unveil more of her personal style.
