Some style icons are just not recognized by the audience. Take a quick glance at the story of fashion and you will realize how people normally don’t detect a true style icon. The Nanny was one of them, and she was once named “tacky”, but nowadays she’s a total trendsetter. When looking for some of this inspiring people I was thinking about movies that I like, series that I watch or even music that I hear. Devil Wears Prada? Cool, but not unique. Sex and the City? Amazing but not breathtaking. SClub7? Awful and awful.
As you can see in some of my Style Icons post, I always try to give recognition to those who have a great style but aren’t really recognized. Today I saw Legally Blonde, and while most of the girls think that Elle Woods is a super stylish Barbie girl, I do not consider her a style icon. Go to LA and you are going to see tons of girls dresses up like her. But how about Paulette? The lovely manicurist from the movie that functions as Elle Woods BFF. Let me tell you something, Paulette is a true style icon. From the moment that she did the Bend & Snap and broke the mailman nose I felt in love with her. Look at her: She’s always smiling (that’s the best accessory every), she wears bright colors and she has curves. Now tell me: who is more stylish: Elle Woods or Paulette? You decide. My answer would be Paulette.
