My Retro Style Icon...

Solanah at Vixen Vintage is having a giveaway to win Topshop vouchers on her blog and all you have to do is blog about your retro style icon.  I also love Smeg, the fridges particularly!  If you do to click here for the retro collection.   This got me thinking about mine.

There isn't really a particular film star or celebrity whose retro style I admire, although I love some of the outfits Marilyn Monroe, Audrey Hepburn and Judy Garland wore I don't love everything about them.  I also think modern actresses do retro style really well like Zooey Deschanel, Amy Adams and Emma Stone.  Again I wouldn't say I am inspired by them though.

Then I realised the best retro icon I could pick was a fashion designer and it would have to be Christian Dior for his New Look.  So much of the '50's fashion that I love today sprang from his original collection that it would be silly for me to pass it up.  If I could wear one of these gowns today I would be a very happy lady!
