This Friday 8th March celebrates International Women’s Day. For us, we feel it’s a day to be proud, to be inspired and to celebrate all that women have achieved, and all that women will go on to achieve for future generations.
So here’s a look at our pick of the most iconic looks from our lifetimes. Whether they deserve credit for the statement they made, the trends that they inspired, or simply the sweet spot they hold in our heart, let us celebrate each of the strong women behind these looks.
Reece Witherspoon in Legally blonde
Nothing says beauty and brains quite like a pink two piece suit (don’t forget the feather pen and handbag pooch).
Kate and Pippa Middleton
While it can be argued that Pippa upstaged her sister, we think they both looked out of this world!
SJP in Sex And The City
Was there a single outfit throughout the series that didn’t make a statement?
Lady Gaga – The meat dress
Another statement maker – but since her role in A Star Is Born, we’re falling more and more in love with the real Gaga and everything she represents.
Blair Waldorf in Gossip Girl
For her sassiness, her love for Chuck but most importantly for every one of her statement headbands. We can’t tell you how excited we are that headbands are back!
She defines strong women, she proudly wears her emotions for all to see, and she’s not afraid to make a statement on and off the court. Oh and this lycra/tutu combo is legendary.
Nigella Lawson in a ‘Burkini’
If you hadn’t already seen this image, you’re welcome. But in all seriousness, Nigella reminds us on a regular basis that curvy is god damn sexy, so go ahead and double spread that lurpack.
Jennifer Anniston in Friends
There is no denying that she has been a style icon of our lifetime, for every reason. For her commitment to ditch the bra, for her introducing us to hair straighteners, and for her continuing to age so beautifully. Please God, bless us with those genes.
It’s another classic, and an ode to all of those shameless, unapologetic and true women.
The Kardashians were bound to make it on the list, and it was too tough to choose the most iconic look, or the most iconic sister, so we’re hitting you with our fave 3. Whether you love them or loath them, there is no denying that their instagram updates have us hooked on the daily, their outfits make statements and set global trends on the regular, and if nothing more, we thank them for putting curves back on trend.
“Here’s to strong women may we know them. May we be them. May we raise them.”
