April 2013: Style File, Lady Margaret Thatcher & That Iconic Hair Style

So a couple of days ago, I turned on the news and discovered that Lady Margaret Thatcher had passed away, so I thought it only right that I do a tribute, not just to her politics, but of course to her style. So here it is, a countdown of her best styling and most iconic looks, a mix up of blue suits, ladylike bags and not forgetting those pearls.

No. 5
 The Hair

Every powerful woman has one, an iconic hairstyle of course! The Queen, Marilyn Monroe, and Lady Margaret of course. It is the hairstyle that had carried her through most of her political career and an iconic one of that, being something that has been instantly recognisable to people everywhere around the world. 

No. 4
The Pearls

The pearl, worn by so many strong women as a sign of femininity, strength and independence including women such as Coco Chanel and The Queen. They were Lady Margaret's signature jewel and a jewel that was to be taken seriously.

No. 3

The iconic colour was worn by an iconic conservative. The colour of blue of course is the colour that represents the party she led as the first woman Prime Minister in the UK, EVER! (And what a fabulous colour it is to represent with).

No. 2
Power Suits

A big 80's trend for women, the power suit, with of course big shoulders, which made women feel superior, sexy and more feminine that what a man could do with a suit, ever.

No. 1
The Ladylike bag

What would a woman do without a handbag? She would probably feel undressed without one! Lady Margaret never went a day without a ladylike bag by her side, using it as a statement against men, as if to say ' Move over boys, I'm in charge!'

What do you think of Lady Margaret Thatcher's style? comment below, and as always, let's be social:

April 2013: What I Strut Too!

So when it comes to fashion, it all starts with a catwalk, and what does every good model need to strut their stuff too down a catwalk? Music of course! So here it is, my top five favourite fashion songs to strut your stuff too (even if it is only down the pavement, I mean, you gotta strut your stuff somewhere and to something fabulous). 

No. 5

This song gave me goosebumps when I first heard it, and still does! The lyrics, the melody, the beat, everything about it makes me want to get up and strut. Now strike a pose.

No. 4

Featured in the S/S 13 show for Chanel, The Chromatics played live while the Chanel models strutted around huge wind turbines, what a beautiful ensemble.

No. 3

Featured in the J'adore Dior advert, I instantly fell in love with Gossip when I was mesmerised by the recreation of an on-screen legend, brought to life through Dior's wonderful imagination, Marilyn Monroe of course! J'adore!

No. 2

 An iconic song, by the legend that is Madonna, featuring iconic legends of course! "Greta Garbo, and Monroe, Deitrich and DiMaggio, Marlon Brando, Jimmy Dean on the cover of a magazine. Grace Kelly; Harlow, Jean, picture of a beauty queen, Gene Kelly, Fred Astaire, Ginger Rodgers, dance on air. They had style, they had grace, Rita Hayworth gave good face, Lauren, Katherine, Lana too, Bette Davis, we love you! Ladies with an attitude, fellows that were in the mood, don't just stand there, let's get to it, strike a pose, there's nothing to it, Vogue!"

No. 1

And finally, when I first heard this, my first thought was, really? And then I listened to it over and over and fell in love with it, every rule is a fashion guide. What was number three again?

So, what do you think? What are your favourite catwalk songs, or songs you like to strut your stuff too: whether it be down the street, to the dance floor or down a runway, comment below, and as always, let's be social:
