Classic and Unconventional Beauty

My two style icons are without a doubt Diana Ross and Marilyn Monroe. Diana Ross for me is just a timeless classic beauty with impecable style and grace. I also love her daughter Tracy Ellis Ross fashion sense as well. I liked the way Marilyn Monroe thought. She was savy and smart, making herself one of the most talked about women of her time as well as all time. She had moxy and guts! Thats what I admire most about Miss Monroe! She also had the most chic style.

Here are more items I find to be classics such as a MAC lipstick in red and the warm soft scent of Cashmere Mist perfume by Donna Karan

Here's my rendition of that classic Diana Ross black and white photo






I read a lovely article in this months Marie Claire magazine that made me smile as a read diligently on the train. The article was title "The Gap Generation". It focused on up and coming models and actresses with gaps (or a space between their two front teeth). The article spoke of Lara Stone, the new face of Louis Vuitton, Anna Pequin of True Blood, Georgia Jagger and Vanessa Paradis french girlfriend of Johnny Deep and face of Chanel Rouge CoCo lipstick.

I love that something so quirky is now a wanted commodity when some of us gaped tooth girls suffered endlessly in school. I learned to love my gaped tooth smile and I'm glad the rest of the world is falling in love with it too!

 

Here's a picture of me showing off my smile at my graduation!

XOXO
Monroe
