Classy & Fabulous

Two of my all time favorite style icons are Rachel Bilson and Kate Bosworth. I admire their natural beauty, easy elegance, and classy approach to fashion.
Red is a current favorite fashion color of mine. It's bold and confident, alluring and glamorous. Everything I aspire to be.
But red is best pared down with more sobering colors and pieces, just as these two ladies do. Rachel with her black blazer and casual stripes and Kate with her choice to forgo jewelry. After all, elegance is refusal.
I'd love to know. Who are your style icons?

I actually love Blake Lively right now! Rachel Bilson is a fav, too. She doesn't get enough credit!

Jaime @ La vie...J'aime said...

I just love Rachel Bilson's entire look- so classy but fun too :)

Connie @ Sogni e Sorrisi said...

I think Rachel Bilson is adorable. Love the bag!

Some of my style icons include Gwyneth, Olivia Palermo, Kate Moss, Michelle Obama, Miroslava Duma, Leigh Lezark and I love the styling on Gossip Girl.

Rachel...100% I am not digging the 2tone hair these days...but only because this is something she would have tried a few years ago and I would have blindly followed to disastrous results. Can someone get this cute chick into a movie soon or something? I wanna look at her some more!

I guess it's quite unusual these days, but I don't have a "style icon" per se. I love and appreciate style in general, but no body in particular to follow. I love Audrey Hepburn, as well as my best friend's dress sense. Actually thinking about it, the person that influenced me the most is my mother, the dresses she used to wear when I was a kid were a killer, and I still remember them. Very chic and feminine, so darling ignore my earlier sentence, I do have a style icon and she is my mother! Never really thought about it like that before, cheers.

These two are lovely style icons! I couldn't agree more -- I also adore Olivia Palermo and Miroslava Duma...

Hope you're having a fantastic week, Crystal :)

definitely Rachel Bilson is one of them, she always nails it!

Stephanie Sabbe said...

Always love Rachel Bilson, but I love seeing what Olivia Palemero wears these days.

Kate said...

I love Rachel Bilson too -- and that summery coral red in these shots! Reese witherspoon is always one of my favorites to watch too -- she always looks effortlessly chic

Kate Collins Interiors said...

My favs are Rachel Bilson, Gwyneth Paltrow and Olivia Palermo. Unfortunately, Olivia really urks me in "The City" otherwise she would be my top pick. I love all of their timeless, effortless looks. "Elegance is refusal" - I love that...so true!

Anna Liesemeyer said...

My other style icons:
Audrey Hepburn and Grace Kelley (of course ;))
Reese Witherspoon
Victoria Beckham
