Style Icon: Iris Apfel

This eighty-six year old lady is the epitome of style. She wears big, bold jewelry and beautiful ornate clothing. So popular is she, that a book was written about her titled: THE IRREVERENT IRIS APFEL: RARE BIRD OF FASHION. The book contains clothing and jewelry that is absolutely breathtaking. I like the fact that she has and revels in her "individual style". She does not follow the "fashion path"....she has created her own.

Gracious Beauty Audrey Hepburn

I think that she will always be remembered most for her role in Breakfast At Tiffany's, but from what I have read about her, she was a beautiful person inside and out. Here is a quote that was spoken by her that I think sums up the type of person that she was...."never let yourself grow up believing that anybody if different from anybody else.....love each other and do what you can for your neighbor".

"Lady Day"

Billie Holiday gave new meaning to singing a song.

Daphne Giunness

Another "lady of style"

Diana Ross

As she appeared in the movie "mohogany"

Butterfly dress


"A trunk full of treasures"

Dolce and Gabbana "Face" wedge platforms

Manolo Blahnik

This shoe belongs on display.
