My Personal Style Icons

Julie Andrews. The women that have influenced me over the years are pretty random. :) Miss Andrews portrayed confident, independent, hardworking women in two of my favorite movies: Mary Poppins and The Sound of Music. She exudes the same chic simplicity and class, while maintaining a playful demeanor, in her formal attire of white dresses and black suits. I am absolutely intrigued and inspired by her! (1 / 2 / 3)

Lights. I fell in love with her at Warped Tour 2008, and never fell out! Her music style is infectious electo-pop, while her fashion style is a hot mix of hippie, punk and playful. I adore her hair, headbands and layers. (1 / 2 / 3)

Christina Hendricks. Sigh, I have a huge crush on this lady. Nothing inspires me more than a curvy woman who isn't afraid to dress loudly! Bright colors, lush fabrics, big waves... she is the epitome of femininity. (1 / 2 / 3)

Amy Grant. I always wanted her big hair in the 90s. I still do. ♥ Who are your celebrity style muses? (1)


  1. Lights is the coolest and Christina Hendricks is a total babe. My style muses also include Audrey Hepburn, Sienna Miller and Michelle Williams (really tempted to chop my hair off because of these lovely ladies!).

    Fun post! :)

  2. Christiiina! Total inspiration for me, right thurr. I love that she owns her curves, and that she dresses how she wants. Julie Andrews is an amazing lady, too! I think my other style icons would be Kate Winslet, definitely, and Drew Barrymore, Marion Cotillard, Audrey Tautou, Keira Knightley, Carey Mulligan. Sophie Dahl, LOVE her to pieces. Oscar de la Renta and the style he's known for inspire me - Tom Ford, too, of course. And Cary Grant; I actually did a whole blog post once on how he inspires my style. I don't think a lot of women consider men as style icons, but he's a big one for me. (:

  3. I love Christina Hendricks, her elegant style and her gorgeous body shape. Definitely a style inspiration and a refreshing change to the straight up and down body shapes with stick on boobs lol.

  4. Oh man, I don't comment enough over here, do I?

    Julie Andrews : Yes times a million! I was JUST watching The Sound of Music and thinking about how much I love that movie and how I wish I could evolve my wardrobe to be more like hers. There is something so nice about all those fitted bodices with the full skirts.

    Lights and Amy Grant : I do now know enough about them...except for Amy Grant's hair...yes.

    Christina Hendricks : My pet peeve is that she receives the "curvy" label as if she is somehow breaking the bounds of beauty in Hollywood. But she's still unattainably tall and thin...also still white. I think she is beautiful, but I was introduced to her under the guise of her being different and outside of the beauty mold...what a lie. She does have good taste (or her stylist does), and she is a great actor.

  5. I'm going to be honest and say I feel SOOO lame, because I don't know who any of these women are. I know Julie Andrews only from the sound of music, but not anything about her style.

    I DO like the photos though, and can see where this whole style inspiration is coming from with these women!

  6. I love that you included Julie Andrews in this list! Truly amazing!

  7. i love that julie andrews is on of your fashion icons. she definitely is the bomb.

  8. These are some pretty damn good choices. Love some Lights and Hendricks in general though.
