CLASSIC

Grace Kelly

Time.com: “With her porcelain beauty and self-awareness, Grace Kelly could make even the simplest of fashions look effortlessly glamorous. She epitomized ’50s style, from the carefully coiffed hair, shirtwaist dresses and fitted sweaters to the tailored jackets, full skirts and satin evening gowns.”

CHIC

Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis

Time.com: “Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis was never just the wife of a President. As First Lady, she represented the style and sophistication of 1960s America. From her chic, perfectly tailored suits and dresses to delicate details like elbow-length gloves and three-strand pearl necklaces, she was credited with not only making politics fashionable but also inspiring women around the world to adopt her classic Jackie look.”

WHIMSICAL

Twiggy

Time.com: “Twiggy, born Lesley Hornby, was but a teenager when her name became synonymous with the mod look of London in the 1960s. A gamine haircut she got at the age of 16 jump-started her career, and eventually the cut, along with her long eyelashes and skinny limbs, led the Daily Express, an English newspaper, to declare her the “Face of ’66.” Twiggy’s fame was a harbinger of the modern-day supermodels, most especially those who went on to have successes beyond modeling.”

BOHEMIAN

Jane Birkin

Time.com: “With her straight bangs, calm stare and gapped teeth, the woman for whom the famed Hermès Birkin bag was named embodied the cool nonchalance of mod London and yeh-yeh Paris in the 1960s and ’70s.”

AVANT-GARDE

Isabella Blow

Time.com: “Born in London, Isabella Blow first became interested in fashion after falling in love with her mother’s pink hat. How fitting, then, that she would become famous decades later for discovering the then unknown milliner Philip Treacy. She wore his hats in most public appearances throughout the rest of her life. Blow went on to discover and promote models Sophie Dahl and Stella Tennant and, most famously, the late designer Alexander McQueen.”
