Unlikely Style Icon: Lol From “This is England ’86”

Last week I watched "This is England '86," the follow up mini-series to the 2006 film "This is England," about a crew of non-racist skinhead kids in England in the 1980s. Starring the same group of relative unknown featured in the original film, "This is England '86" centers on the story of Lol,…

Can We Stop Pretending Kate Middleton Is A Style Icon?

As Prince William and Kate Middleton have made their tour around Canada and the U.S., one thing everybody's been over-the-moon obsessed with is what Kate's wearing. I, for one, just don't care.

Most of Audrey Hepburn's most iconic images come straight from old film stills or famous movie posters (raise your hand if at one point you had a "Breakfast at Tiffany's" poster in your room ... or still do). Now's the chance to…

I Wanna Dress Like: Diana Ross

Diana Ross has been a fashion force since she was the lead singer of the Supremes and starred in the classic "Mahogany.". Since we can't raid Ms. Ross' closet, like her daughters Tracee Ellis Ross and Chudney Ross, we created our own outfits based on her red carpet looks. Obviously, you'll need to pair them…

Where Are All The Style Icons At?!

Liz Jones, a columnist for the U.K.'s Daily Mail thinks our generation has a problem -- we don't have any style icons! Sure, we've got women like Michelle Obama and Kate Moss to look to for style inspiration, but, according to Jones, not one woman in the twentysomething age bracket really deserves the…

I can't wait to pick up the latest issue of Lucky magazine every month because it always presents the best fashion possibilities.
