Since Never Fully Dressed was originally conceived as a style blog, that seemed like the best place to start. We are all looking for our own personal style, but sometimes a little inspiration helps. So spill it- who's your favorite style icon?

Ideally, I would have loved to say Audrey Hepburn. To me she is the epitome of the kind of lady I want to be- classic, graceful, and elegant in an innocent "oh this old thing?" kind of way. But even though I can appreciate her skirt suits with the clean lines, the long gloves with dresses, and pillow hats tall enough to hide her chignon, I know that my style is a touch louder than hers ;)
So instead I'd have to go with Elisa Nalin, a famous stylist that you've probably seen splashed across any magazine or site that covers any and all Fashion Weeks. I absolutely adore her. Her spunky use of prints, her fearless clash of colors and interesting choice of textures- all of it is such an inspiration and right up my alley! She literally plays with her clothes, and, in my opinion, that is what fashion is all about :)

In actuality I have a couple of style icons. For my vintage side, I absolutely love Audrey Hepburn. Not only for her style sense, but also for the incredible lady-like example she set for the ladies back then and even now. As far as modern icons, I adore Zooey Deschanel's style. Her outfits are so perfect and I can't get over that adorable haircut!

I have many style icons, but one of my favorites is silent film star Colleen Moore. Many of her films are lost, but I've had the pleasure of seeing her shine in Lilac Time, Ella Cinders, and Orchids and Ermine. She was funny and spunky - a great comedian as well as a versatile dramatic artist. She epitomized the flapper on the silver screen, but I admire her pre-bobbed days as well. Many of her films and still portraits reveal a playful, bewitching style.

I distinctly remember when I became interested in fashion over just clothing. My freshman year of high school was when I discovered fashion week, foreign fashion magazines, and street style blogs. I fell in love with Proenza Schouler, Miu Miu, and Rodarte and looking at their works of art in French Vogue and on Style.com is what inspired me to want to work for a magazine. Perhaps it was this desire that drew me to Taylor Tomasi Hill's style. Formerly a Teen Vogue editor, the current style and accessories editor for Marie Claire has the perfect style in my eyes. She manages to effortlessly mix feminine and masculine styles and proportions, all while looking classic and immaculately put-together. Do I even need to mention that hair? She's flawless.
It used to be difficult for me to come up with a style icon. However, over the past several months I've really begun to hone my style into one I truly love, and with that comes inspiration in the form of Katherine Hepburn. Other than being absolutely gorgeous, Katherine was also very versatile. She towed the line flawlessly between dramatic gowns and menswear inspired trousers and blazers. I love that her style was very simple, but included special details and was extremely well tailored. I've long been on a hunt for the perfect pair wide legged trousers ala Katherine Hepburn. Other than her inspiring clothing, I am forever enamored with the fabulous hairstyles the slim beauty sported. Perfect 1940's waves are something I would love to master. Katherine was fearless, cheeky, and endearingly disheveled, all reasons to love her style.
