Style icon

post #1 of 73

Not sure if this has been covered before. Who are your style icons? Explanations wouldn't hurt either. The only one whose style I consistently idolize is Wayne Coyne. His outfits (neutral colored slim but not tight suit and light shirt with no tie, white, pink or otherwise) always just look very subtle and have a very comforting look. I figure when I get a little older I can start dressing like this. When wearing suits I rarely wear a tie (but I never really have to wear one anyway, so oh well). His outfits perfectly compliment his personality and his songwriting - friendly, loose, tranquil, mature and utopian. It's so simple and perfect. Pictures:

Steve McQueen. He looked great dressed up (Thomas Crown) or dressed down (Great Escape).  He was the ultimate in American cool, both on and off the screen.         He lived with great style.  He drove fast cars, and drove them with great skill (take note James Dean fans.)  He took huge risks with his career, and brought a calm, charismatic presence to every role he played.

Without a doubt,Paul Reubens. There's just something very Astaireque about his sense of grace in a suit...

Marilyan Manson unlike many people actually has a way with suits. And various period attire. But then his girlfriend is Dita Von Teese who also has a way with fairly odd vintage wear.

Excellent choices, LabelKing. Several seemingly eclectic choices, exactly what I'd expect from you. Also, Kai, you hit it right on the nose with McQueen. And last, Charlie, Bowie is great. I'm always intrigued by his style - something that really fits him and his personality without looking like he's trying too hard, but nothing I could ever really pull off.

I've never really had a style icon per se.  But, I've always admired the way Yul Brynner carried himself (thus rendering what he wore secondary), and in some movies (like "Anastacia") was dressed so elegantly - btw. check out the darts on his shirts in that movie.

[quote]/andrew labelking, Salvador Dali is ... the man, and there are very few other ways to put it. Good choice.

I've always like William Powell's look in the Thin Man series.

Oh, Andy Warhol. Do you also don a silver bag lady wig? With expensive lizard boots?
