This Halloween season Devil doesn’t wear Prada but Chanel. Just for a day I have decided to brush elbows with a few Fashion Icons to duplicate looks of mystery, inaccessibility, elegance, glamour, and curiosity. As I was dressing into each character I realized that these icons had something in common. They are unpredictable, original, and timeless. Don’t be fooled into thinking that all poses and personality came easily.
It was challenging to step into Marylyn Monroe’s shoes and it took me over an hour to master her memorable pose in a white dress. I quickly realized why she became symbol of sex and beauty. Because Fashion gives us so much diversity in expression we continue to re-create flawless looks, behavior, and style adding a little bit of our own ingredient into the mix. To some of us this comes easily and naturally.
Today’s fashionistas have much more pressure to claim the Fashion Icon status. lts no longer sufficient just to master a red carpet walk to become a queen of one. Competition is fierce and its only through unique creative memorable expression, individuality carried along with assertiveness that will score this crown. So in the meantime practice at the front of the mirror and camera. Be brave! and get your stylish juices going.
Only then can the rest of us can get kick out of your style and declare you a FASHION ICON.
As always I would like to hear from you who is your favorite Fashion Icon and why? Perhaps this Halloween season you are going to get inspired by their style and will create a knock out costume that you can share here with all of us and get some laughs!!!
