Modern or vintage, my icons for this Spring all have one thing in common; FEMALE POWER. They are all actresses, two from the 1950's, and two modern day. On the catwalks, the late 1950 influence was rife, so for my old day icons I chose two-very obvious- characters: Marilyn and Audrey.
Marilyn is my make up and hair inspiration. I am hoping to dye my hair asap, and I already love the 50's girl-next-door look. Marylins never over done curls are perfect for a spring/summer look; they're soft yet chic, feminine yet sexy.
My modern hero's are almost modern day reflections of those ladies. I have loved Keira Knightley for like ever, and her return is really happily appreciated! She has already been on Vogue and Elle covers in the UK this year, and has been shot internationally. She is jumping on the 50's look, and her hair is beautiful.
