My Beauty Icons

My Beauty Icons

Beauty comes in many standards and cannot be measured by one single person. Beauty is something that is personal to every woman, but we often find inspiration from the many beautiful men and woman that surround us.

It’s good to admire the strength, courage, knowledge and pride that people have in their own style. While the list can be infinite, here are some ladies (young and old) who have inspired me in fashion, beauty and womanhood.

Frida Kahlo

A world-renowned painter, Khalo let her emotions and experiences dictate her beauty. She is the true definition of self-awareness. Although she went through difficult times in her life, she maintained the elegance and grace that we are still in love with today.

Patricia Bright

Like many YouTubers, Patricia Bright is a hardworking and dedicated vlogger who’s fashion style centers on being comfortable in her own skin. Since starting her YouTube channel in 2010, she has grown a following of 900,000 subscribers and seems to have organically picked up her current fashion and beauty looks along the way. She let’s her passion fuel her work and encourages all of her followers to be comfortable in their own skin.

Any time that I’m feeling the 70’s look and need inspiration, Ms. Dobson is the first woman I look to. The trend-setting model and actress had made amazing attributes to fashion in her lifetime. Her fashion sense was elegant, but relaxed. Although she was physically attractive, her confidence was what really made her a shining star.
