My fictional fashion icons...

By Lucy Harbron - 21:06



So i have watched Breakfast At Tiffany's twice in less than 24 hours. I'm a little obsessed. But how perfect is Audrey Hepburn!? Here are some of my favourite quotes of hers!

"I believe in manicures. I believe in overdressing. I believe in primping at leisure and wearing lipstick. I believe in pink. I believe happy girls are the prettiest girls. I believe that tomorrow is another day, and... I believe in miracles."
"Let's face it, a nice creamy chocolate cake does a lot for a lot of people; it does for me."
"For beautiful eyes, look for the good in others; for beautiful lips, speak only words of kindness; and for poise, walk with the knowledge that you are never alone."
How amazing! But this whole Audrey Hepburn/Holly Golightly obsession got me thinking about some other fictional people i idolise and use as fashion inspiration!
My Fictional Fashion Icons

Holly Golightly (breakfast at Tiffany's)-We all know that Audrey Hepburn is insanely perfect, but i really love Holly. Just everything about her; her style, her attitude, her whole outlook on life. Her simple, classic yet fun fashion sense. LBD's, plain colours and pink. Everyone knows her signature up-do and minimal makeup. She always has the perfect cat eyes and lips. Pearl necklaces and hats but never diamonds for a women of her age. The ultimate style icon. She is just elegance personified, everything she does seems beautiful.
         I think Holly's personality is really unique as she is like a tame "wild thing", living the life of a wild child but underneath being so innocent and scared. Her "i never want to belong to anyone" attitude, her nameless cat, her dream of making enough money to live with her brother Fred and her past of stealing turkey wings just all adds up to creak this character. Just so perfect, i don't have enough words!

Cher Horowitz (Clueless)-I don't understand why every girl on earth hasn't seen this film! It is the 1990s version of legally blonde, or mean girls but better and with quotes like "Dad-Do you know what time it is? Cher-A watch doesn't really go with this outfit, daddy" and "i am totally buggin'"
Cher Knows how to work a matching blazer and skirt combo and ballet pumps and knee-high socks. She has the school girl/uniform-esk look down yet still gives every outfit a fun twist. She always looks so feminine and chic, innocent and pure. I love her simple, middle-parted blonde hair, her minimal makeup using nude coloured lipsticks and blusher to give off a warm glow.Her fashion over all attitude is just the best. fashion>everything. I love her longing for a project and wanting to give back, I think all girls could learn a lot from Cher!

Wednesday Addams (The Addams Family)- I'll admit that i have only ever seen bits of this film, but I've seen enough to know that Wednesday is beautiful. Her amazing dark hair and eyes are just wow! We all know that I'm a collar ADDICT. I have massive Wednesday Addams collar envy. Those sharp collars just...I WANT THEM. I also have Wednesday Addams hair envy. I would love dark hair so much! Her perfectly flat, smooth, straight hair frames her face perfectly and is so simple yet so bold! I have Wednesday Addams dress envy. She always looks so sensible and proper in her dresses, very Gothic and dark but still childlike and innocent! I think Wednesday is just the right balance between beautiful and scary. She has a very striking look that really grabs your attention. Pale with dark hair is what i would love to be! I've got the paleness down, still longing for the hair!
                          I've never been sure if the directors wanted Wednesday to be so beautiful, or whether it was a lucky mistake. All i know is that she is just flawless!


Emma (one day)- One day is one of my favourite books. I read it after watching the film and it was perfection. I love Em's laid back looks and i loved watching/imagining her style change and evolve throughout it. I read a lot of books but i think one day was the first one that really grabbed my attention on a fashion basis. I loved picturing Em and Dex's world (i imagined it with a Polaroid filter over everything!) I think Em's style is just very mishmash and careless but it just works, as the book/film goes on it all comes together to form this beautiful person in beautiful dresses and outfits. My favourite bit in the book is when Em goes to Paris, i imagined the clothes and just fell in love with the whole Parisian style of it all. My favourite feature is Em's beautiful chocolate brown, curly hair! Again, i so wish i had dark hair, but i also wish my hair was at least wavy! My top Emma hair memory is when her and Dexter are one holiday when her hair is a bit loner and she has the cutest sunglasses on. She brings the clothes we now call "vintage" to life, and grows from this mishmash feminist into this classy style icon! If you haven't read one day i definitely recommend it!  Oh and it also features one of my all time favourite quotes-
"you're gorgeous, you old hag, and if i could give you one gift ever for the rest of your life it would be this.
It would be the gift of confidence.
Either that or a scented candle."
love it.

  1. Hi Lucy,
    I hold the world's record for watching Breakfast at Tiffany's- too many women dismiss Holly as a beautiful, zany, chic- kook. They need to look much deeper.
    I used to drink my morning milk from a martini glass and sleep in an over size man's tux shirt and I have a blue sleeping mask (my cat is a calico though!)- sadly I don't look like Audrey- but I DO GET THE MEAN REDS.
