15 Fabulous Female Style Icons That the World Loves ...

By Ecem

Some women are just fashiontastic enough to be termed "style icons". Who are these fabulous women? Read guest contributor Ecem's post to find out...

Admit it, you all have some female style icons who you look up to and admire. Well, who doesn’t? But let’s face it, not every celeb deserves that spot. Up for a count down for my female style icons?

1 Princess Diana

Princess Diana Being classy is one thing, but being classy and modest at the same time is a whole different chapter… This lady was never afraid to try new things when it came to dressing. There was no in or out for her especially in fashion. Maybe that’s what makes her style so timeless and so admirable! Long live the legacy of Diana!

2 Grace Kelly

Grace Kelly Grace of Monaco, face of fashion! Looks like Jane Birkin is not the only one who has a Hermes bag named after her… This graceful lady also has a bag carrying her name. (Kelly bag) And not only that! Her clothes had so many admirers that in 2010, the Victoria and Albert Museum exhibited her clothes. Another timeless chick!

3 Audrey Hepburn

Audrey Hepburn After an elegant breakfast at Tiffany’s, she seems to have lost herself in Tiffanies. Our princess then finds herself in the «International Best Dressed List» of «Hall of Fame». Well, this one is far too humble a list when compared to that of Hall of Fame, but our aims are just the same!

4 Marilyn Monroe

Marilyn Monroe One of my personal favorites! If someone influences the fashion industry even after half a century afterr her death, she is probably one of the most influential figures to have ever walked the face of earth. I’m sure she and her style will never go out of fashion!

5 Brigitte Bardot

Brigitte Bardot Okay, her influence in the fashion world is too solid to summarize in just a few sentences. But here is few of what she is best known for; she has brought into style the wearing of bikinis, started and popularized the choucroute hairstyle, has the «Bardot neckline» named after her, was idolized by John Lennon and Paul McCartney, has a statue by Christina Motta honoring her… And so on.

6 Katharine Hepburn

Katharine Hepburn She who pioneers something changes the world. Well, this lady pioneered the wearing of trousers in Hollywood and was involved in various sources as a «woman who changed the world»… Like she said, «If you obey all the rules, you miss all the fun.» Would have been so unfair to not give her a place in this list!

7 Britt Ekland

Britt Ekland This Bond Girl has a strong bond with fashion. She once said, «I never learned the value of money.» Apparently, the money she spends on clothes is worth it, though. The 007 girl is number 007 of my style icons list.

8 Sophia Loren

Sophia Loren A Grammy, five special Golden Globes, a BAFTA Award, a Laurel Award, and an unforgettable fame! Not bad for her non-English speaking performances, huh? Apparently she doesn’t have to speak in English when her clothes do the talking for her.

9 Catherine Deneuve

Catherine Deneuve Is it that she is French, or is it just that she is of good taste? I guess I will never find the answer to this question. One thing is for sure, though: she knows how to get dressed. Her fame will never fade.

10 Jane Birkin

Jane Birkin You know you are cool when a bag is named after you. But you know that you are an icon when a bag of Hermes is named after you (Birkin bag) What else is left to say? You absolutely have your spot on this list, Birkin!

11 Kate Middleton

Kate Middleton Royalty looks so good on her! But that’s not the only thing that she carries so perfectly! This duchess definitely knows how to carry her dresses, too! Will she leave a mark as glory as that of Grace Kelly, only time will show…

12 Kate Moss

Kate Moss A controversial figure who made it to the list of «100 Most Influential People In The World» of the TIME magazine! Well, I agree that she is very influential with her edgy style! Especially when it comes to fashion. Go girl!

13 Faye Dunaway

Faye Dunaway Only four letters can describe what she is: C-O-O-L! Nice style, check. Nice clothes, check. Nice taste, check. Nice career, check. What else does one need to be considered a style icon?

14 Farrah Fawcett

Farrah Fawcett This angel of Charlie definitely deserves a spot on this list! They say that a picture is worth a thousand words. Apparently, it really is! Did you know that her iconic photo in the red Speedo swimsuit has been produced as a Barbie? How stylish is that?

15 Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis

Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis A first lady with a first class wardrobe! Did you know that this lady’s fashion expenses exceeded the $100,000 annual salary of her husband the first year he became the president? No wonder she became an unforgettable female style icon! The white house seems to have brought her a white fame!

End of my list! Who are your fashion role models and style icons?
