Style Icon: Madonna

Latest trends

Madonna has long been noted for her ever-changing looks. A true fashion chameleon, she has gone from fashion rebel in the 80s, sultry leather clad vixen in the 90s, avant-garde style maven in the 00’s, and finally to sophisticated glamazon. Her fashion line, Material Girl, with her daughter, Lola has been hugely successful and a testament to her fashion prowess. She is a true quadruple threat, Madonna is a singer, dancer, actress, and designer. A true style icon.

Here are some of my favorite Madonna looks:

Mert and Marcus are incredible when capturing Madonna’s verve and unique energy. This shoot for her MDNA album is like a throwback to the time of Gaultier bustiers and Vogue-ing. I love it!

Style Icon: Miranda Kerr

Latest trends

Ex Victoria’s Secret Angel and organic skincare maven (check out her skincare line, Kora Organics), Miranda Kerr, is an emerging style icon of our time. Often featured in magazines and fashion blogs for her stellar street and red carpet style, she has definitely transcended from model off duty style to bona fide global sartorial star. Her outfits are often referenced, pinned, imitated, but you simply can’t duplicate the modern sophistication and unique elegant aura that Miranda naturally has. Perhaps it’s her Aussie upbringing or her model mojo, one thing is for sure, Miranda Kerr is a mogul in the making and a style icon to watch out for.

Here are my top picks for Miranda Kerr’s best looks:

Miranda Kerr’s signature is trendy yet subtle. Her understated way of mixing prints in this ensemble should be your top wardrobe inspiration. The leopard slip-on heeled mules and the casual striped tank is an unexpected combo that works. The Hermes Birkin and white cropped pant add that polish, that her style is known for.

Miranda’s jetsetting lifestyle necessitates impeccable airport style, and her outfits while in transit is always on point. A top knot and oversized sunglasses are practical, while her Chanel tweed jacket and D’orsay low heels are ladylike and comfortable at the same time.

A graphic printed sheath dress gets upgraded with a jewel tone accent. A surprising detail and a welcome one at that, the sapphire blue is the perfect complement to the deep purple hue on the dress. Miranda sures knows the power of a pop of color.

Another day, another amazing airport outfit. Miranda can teach a master class on stylish travel looks. This outfit oozes simplicity and advanced fashion acumen. All white underneath a tailored navy blazer with a casual pair of bright pink sneaks; you’ve just found your go-to look for your next airport jaunt.

Of course, I can’t do her best looks without some of her amazing red carpet style. This white gown with gold embellishments and sexy cutouts is a stunner. With red lips and wavy Veronica Lake inspired hair waves, this looks is Grecian goddess meets Old Hollywood.

Miranda Kerr knows how to channel sexy, and she shows in this look that you don’t need to bare too much skin to be sexy. A curve-hugging lace frock with pointed toe T-strap heels feels vintage yet modern, feminine yet sassy.

Miranda’s sartorial skill? Mixing trends while still keeping it classy. A white jumpsuit with a fringe jacket is already a bold statement, but she adds an extra layer of glam with a gold minaudiere, embellished ankle strap heels, and a Versace belt. It is an uncharacteristically maximalist look, but her simple beauty look balances it.
