Channel Audrey

May 03, 2010

I believe that Audrey Hepburn is one of the most beautiful, sophisticated, and stylish women who has  lived. This Fashionista has channeled the fashion icon’s classic style with a bit of a modern twist.

This Fashionista is wearing a sleek, cream-colored overcoat over opaque black tights with an adorable pair of schoolgirl ballet flats. Her classic overcoat has a stark, contrasting black ribbon, cinching the waist. This Fashionista’s spring trench has a surprising graphic pattern on the back. She has paired this black and white combo with a bold, mother-of-pearl pendent on a simple black cord.

To channel Audrey yourself, seek out feminine, youthful details like bows, large buttons, color-blocking, simple silhouettes, and high collars. Try:

As for makeup, keep your face simple, clean, and neutral with:

Fashion Yearbook: Lady Gaga

Photo by Stephen Carlile

As we wrap up the spring 2010 semester, we have the opportunity to reflect and measure our lives–no, not in love–but in Lady Gaga’s best and worst ensembles.

The “Poker Face” princess has certainly become a cultural phenomenon: who else could both be voted Best and Worst Dressed at the Shockwaves NME Awards and inspire fans to create cookies showcasing her shocking ensembles? Whether you absolutely adore Gaga and pump up “Bad Romance” on the treadmill or detest her growling “rah rah roma mah mah, gaga ooh la la,” you have to admit when it comes to fashion, Gaga is fearless. This article is dedicated to the Fame Monster in all her freakish, pants-less glory.

BEST:

I have a major soft spot for the early Lady Gaga looks—midnight black, hooded leotardsDavid Bowie lightening bolt makeup, and those unmistakable banged, platinum blond tresses topped with a mini-mouse hair bow. Here are some of my favorite looks:

  • Pretty in (Hot) Pink: Gaga put her own twist on the feminine pretty in pink look in this bubblegum pink, structured cocktail dress for the 2007 Brit Awards. In true Gaga style, the dress boasts a super deep, daring V-neck and its accentuated hips make this girly ensemble a little bit more naughty than nice. Her neon pink lips and white-topped sunglasses also edge out this look.

Modern English

My absolute favorite decade is the 1960’s. Especially, London in the 60’s. Twiggy, Carnaby Street, and of course, the fab four: The Beatles–early Beatles, a young Paul McCartney singing innocent tunes like “It Won’t Be Long” and “I Wanna Be Your Man.”

Clearly, the fashions out of the British Invasion are more geared towards the black and white, mod mini-dresses worn by waif models like Twiggy, with enhanced huge eyes before Lady Gaga channeled the look in her “Bad Romance” music video.

But the modern English men of the swinging 60’s also had some stellar style. This Fashionisto had that handsome, dapper look that made the girls swoon–even without the accent. He is wearing a very polished look of a black trench coat over a crisp white button-down, classic black slacks, and leather black loafers.

Get in the English spirit with these British basics:
