Classsic Persona Inspiration

              Style is defined by clothes, of course, but more importantly persona ( or attitude) . So every stylish young lady needs a fashion and a persona icon. There is alot to choose but il give a shout out to my favorites... For all of us,  stylish young ladies: five classy ladies who will always be timeless fashion/persona icons.


Audrey Hepburn: funny,but serious, light hearted but   sentimental, cute but mature, self-assured but caring, beautiful inside and out, and to top it off timelessly chic..  Her recipe of beauty  are words to live by: (in pic)

Katherine Hepburn:  honest, strong, independent, self assured and dressed for herself and noone but herself. When other people downtalked her and her style, she stayed true to herself and  rose above the stupidity... ( round of applause for this lady)....

Bette Davis: strong-willed, dedicated, fiery,  passionate about her career. She never settled. This was hard because at the time she was starting up the movie business was dominated by men. Women's characters were  shallow and played up the gender stereotype of the weak-willed woman. Bette Davis blazed the trail for other actresses by standing up to the industry, so she could get substantial movie roles that portrayed  strong determined women. She was rewarded with a career that spanned six decades, and a legacy that stands today...

Doris Day: beautiful, talented, relatable, charming, respectable, she never cheapened herself. She proved that you don't have to sell yourself cheap to be famous. She is a true role model for young women everywhere.

Marilyn Monroe: smoldering, glamourous, self-assured, confident and pretty life smart. Take a look at these proverbial quotes:  

"When it comes down to it, I let them think what they want. If they care enough to bother with what I do, then I'm already better than them."
"Imperfection is beauty, madness is genius and it's better to be absolutely ridiculous than absolutely boring."
"We are all of us stars, and we deserve to twinkle."
"It's better to be unhappy alone than unhappy with someone."

"Women who seek to be equal with men lack ambition." 

"its better to be hated for what you are than to be loved for what your not"

Theres soo much more but for the sake of time and space heres a link to the rest...

I hope you were as inspired as I was, reading about these iconic women.. Id love to hear about your persona inspirers.
                     Have a Happy Friday :)
