The other day, we were talking about mature women whose style we couldn’t wait to emulate … once we turned 50. But then it hit us: why wait!?

You’ve got great style, sure, but have you made the cut of Time magazine’s list of most influential style icons? If not, that’s okay — only 100 designers, brands, models and muses were selected. The mag curated the list going back to its start in 1923. Some of the choice names?

Inveterate designers like Coco Chanel, Elsa Schiaparelli and Vivienne Westwood. But while high fashion dominated, Sara Blakely, the woman who founded the shapewear line Spanx, also made the list.

Who didn’t? None of young Hollywood’s crop of fashion faces, like Blake Lively and Mila Kunis. It remains to be seen if their fashion influence will last.

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, a young skinhead girl who’s at a crossroads in her romantic relationship and who must make a difficult family decision. I fell in love with the actress playing Lol–Vicky McClure, and her mod skinhead style. Lol is tomboy-ish without losing her essential femininity, tough as nails but sweet to the core. Be sure to check out the movies–and steal her style after the jump! Keep reading »

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. It’s not that I don’t think Kate’s a gorgeous girl with Pantene model hair — she’s clearly stunning and blah blah blah, the picture of English Rose beauty. But really, there is nothing particularly noteworthy about the clothes that she throws on. Keep reading »

Inspiration Board: Lauren Bacall

I was perusing a lifestyle blog yesterday and the subject of Lauren Bacall as a fashion icon came up. I’d heard the actress’ name thrown around with other style icons, like Audrey Hepburn and Marilyn Monroe, but I didn’t have a specific picture in my mind of Bacall. Off to our trusty photo agency, I went. While there were many photos of Bacall with husband Humphrey Bogart recording the program “Lux Radio Theatre” and attending industry events, I found the above photo most compelling. Bacall’s wry smile has just the right amount of cockiness to it. And she stands out from the background with a simple and chic pants outfit. Her smile would take practice to duplicate, but achieving a similar outfit only takes a few clicks of the mouse. Find out how to get this versatile look after the jump. Keep reading »

Get the Look: Rachel Maddow

Fashion inspiration can come from unexpected sources: a poem, an old picture of your great aunt, maybe a certain song about short skirts and long jackets. I once created an outfit based solely on the exquisite color combination found in my iced caramel macchiato.

Rachel Maddow has become one of these unexpected inspirations. I admire her immensely: she is a Rhodes scholar, an accomplished journalist, a gay rights advocate, an eloquent speaker, a lover of cocktails, and a rabble-rouser. She also “dresses like a first grader,” according to her website… Keep reading »
