    My favorite glamour icon was a woman who lived down the boardwalk from my childhood home. She was a high school teacher, like my mother. She didn’t dye her hair but wore it in a simple straight bob and she lived in black clothes! No one else in the neighborhood looked so edgy. She wore black turtle neck sweaters, Audrey black capri’s and a simple silver bracelet. In her home she went barefoot. Her home was decorated with treasures she had collected from her travels and from artist friends. I thought she was an original–comfortable in her unique style. I didn’t have the maturity to absorb her style until much much later in my life when I had learned enough about myself to realize that I wanted that same unfussy, pared down classic style for myself. Even better, this woman was lovely inside and out. I will always remember her.

    I have more than 15 sister-in-laws. They are a diverse group but fashion and beauty ideas abound. I have learned so much over the years by watching and listening.

    • August 16, 2016 / 12:22 pm

      And I thought if I wrote my own girlfriend that would be silly, haha, but glad to see that I’m not the only one looking close to home!

    Lauren Hutton ranks high on my list. Unfussy style, and an “I’ll do what I like, thank you” attitude.

    Hard to pick one glamor icon – but I always think Diane Sawyer looks perfect.

      I like her style also – age appropriate, elegant and classic.

  8. August 10, 2016 / 4:24 am

    My favorite glamour icon is….. *drum roll please* Bardot!! Excuse me now while I go tease my hair and put my Repettos on!

  9. Adele M.
    August 10, 2016 / 4:58 am

    Undoubtedly Audrey. From the first time I saw her in a film, I was smitten. Perhaps because of her gamine style, or that in so many films she transitioned to short hair, but also because of her grace and her commitment to good works and helping others.

  10. Cher Imrie
    August 10, 2016 / 4:59 am

    I have to go with Diane Sawyer, too. She dresses In a very classic way and her hair and makeup look effortless, I think she is a beauty icon. Love her!

    I’ve always admired the ease and simplicity of Meryl Streep. She knows how to age gracefully without masking her true beauty and without surgery or other extreme means. I find her ageless. She inspires me to work with my body, style and lifestyle to create a comfortable way to live in my own skin. Thank you Meryl!

    When my mom was young she (I know this from pics) her style was gorgeous. Even when she was mainly a homemaker she looked fabulous when she dressed up. Helen Mirren is my othe!

  13. August 10, 2016 / 5:13 am

    That’s a tough question for me as I have never followed a ‘glamour icon’. I think if I had to choose, I would say Isabella Rosallini. Ageing gracefully, never fussy, always classy.

  14. Marlene Trevisan
    August 10, 2016 / 5:14 am

    I’ve always admired Katharine Hepburn. I’ve never wanted to dress like her but she knew her style and was true to it. She wore confidence and that never goes out of style.

  15. August 10, 2016 / 5:18 am

    In my twenties, Cheryl Teague, the model.
    Now? Helen Mirren has the whole “older woman I want to be vibe” down.
    But mostly, no Glamour icons, I just want to look like my best me.

    I remember when I was a young girl & my Mom always dressed up to go shopping, to the grocery store, etc. She also wore makeup and fixed her hair. My father was in the Army and we lived all over the world. Back then (in the 60’s), it was frowned upon for wives of soldiers to wear pants when they shopped at the PX or commissary. I will never forget that. My Mom has been gone for 13 years and I still think of her every day.

  17. August 10, 2016 / 5:37 am

    These all look wonderful. Thank you for the giveaway. I do love cream blush.

  18. August 10, 2016 / 5:40 am

    My favorite fashion icon has always been Jackie O – I loved her sense of classic style. She was always put together!

  19. Joanne
    August 10, 2016 / 5:40 am

    My Nana, my mother’s mother. Always so poised and classic in style.

  20. Lesley Goldberg
    August 10, 2016 / 5:45 am

    My mom. She had a huge collection of what we then called spike heels (now stilettos, I guess) in every color and they were the only shoes she wore. And we lived in Brooklyn, NY, where people walked. She had breast cancer at a young age and the surgery left her chest somewhat mangled so she had all her dresses made by a local dressmaker so that the sleeves and chest would be “just so”! All her dresses were in beautiful silks. She was an early adopter of eye make-up as well. She died in 1965 and her closet is still top of mind.

    Princess Diana. I was devastated when she passed away.

  23. Diane
    August 10, 2016 / 5:53 am

    Favorite icon, or at least one I can emulate, was my Mom. Simple and stylish. Always looked sharp and put together. So different from the sloppy way a lot of women dress these days.

  24. August 10, 2016 / 5:58 am

    I thought I knew who m glamour icon was until I saw everyone else’s, and realized there are so many glamorous women from whom to draw inspiration. When it comes down to it I think Carol King is the best example of aging gracefully and letting your light shine, which defines glamorous to me.

  25. August 10, 2016 / 6:04 am

    Wow, my favorite glamour icon….hmmmm…..I grew up watching American cover girls like Christie Brinkley, with her ‘girl next door’ good looks. But I was drawn more to the exotic beauty of Sophia Loren. And then again, there’s Diane Keaton with her ageless beauty….and Julia Roberts with her homespun good looks. Jane Fonda, she’s just gorgeous at every age. And way back when, I admired Lucille Ball’s classic glamour and Donna Reed’s simple, clean beauty. I guess the answer is….I can’t pick just one!

  26. Diane Lebedeff
    August 10, 2016 / 6:10 am

    Audrey Hepburn — of course, given that she befriended and wore the work of her favorite designers — the outside was amazing, but she was also known for her devotion to good works. The outside does benefit from the inside!

  27. Joyce
    August 10, 2016 / 6:13 am

    I would have to say you, Susan! It is so refreshing to find a blog about fashion and style written by a confident, kind, and petite woman. I like that you will wear what you like (and you look great) even when what you wear goes against the “petite rules”.

  28. Kathryn
    August 10, 2016 / 6:16 am

    Isabella Rossellini – intelligent, funny and beautiful.

  29. Meg
    August 10, 2016 / 6:31 am

    I had such a difficult time thinking of someone I emulate, so I asked my sister who she thought my style icon might be.. “You?? emulate? Hahah, you are your own, you emulate no one”. Now that might be a compliment or it might be my sister laughing at my clothes.. I might never know but I prefer to accept the compliment and smile.

    I’d have to say most of the ladies of my youth. I grew up in the 50’s and ’60s’s when women dressed for the occasion. My mom was very sporty, and around the house usually wore shorts or capris and sneakers, but if she went to the grocery store, she’d change into a skirt and sandals or low heels, and never left the house without lipstick. Trips to the city required hats and gloves and a nicer dress or suit. As a child, I also dressed this way. I had school clothes, play clothes, and “good clothes,” which were worn for church, parties, holidays, and other special occasions. Always seeing ladies “dressed” and made up as the norm made a big impression on me and is pretty much the way I dress now.

    My favorite fashion icon was a French teacher I had years ago in Junior High School. Her first name was Odile. She was petite and had shiny dark-brown hair cut in a pixie cut. Her skin was flawless, slightly tan–not much. When she wore lipstick it was a classic red. She must have had maybe 6 dresses, most of them navy with white trim, or black. They fit perfectly and were of the best quality. She usually work dark or cream opaque hose. She reminded me of Audrey Hepburn. What struck me was that her wardrobe was so small, and this was a time when we girls always tried to wear something different every day. She was proof that you could be chic with only owning a few very wonderful items of clothing. Her shoes were probably Italian…She also had excellent posture.

    My girlfriends and I went trick-or-treating at her house, because we were so curious about her. From the foyer we could see that all the walls were white and there was lots of modern artwork on them.

    It’s been about 50 years, and I still remember all this clearly. Since then I’ve been to France, lived in France, and have observed other French women who pretty much exemplify the same fashion/beauty sense.

    And I love the name Odile.

    I love to see what Olivia Palermo is wearing. I look nothing like her and her sense of style would never work for me but her look makes me smile. I also loved Audrey Hepburn. I loved her narrow waist and her soft features. Today, I also admire the Duchess of Cambridge and the Crown Princess of Denmark. Both are elegant and approachable in their appearance. (I also already follow you on FB.)

    Without a doubt, Audrey Hepburn. Simple, classic, and beautiful! Her style is timeless.

    I love the way Audrey Hepburn, Jackie O and Princess Diana dressed. I think it comes down to simple elegance and clothes that fit perfectly.

    When I was growing up, my neighbor lady across the street. She was always well dressed, carried every outfit well. And she would give me her clothes and shoes when she was finished with them so that I could play dressup! She always had the most beautiful lips and lipsticks applied to them. Oh how I wanted to be just like her! I’m so glad she was my neighbor and that she took the time to teach a little girl how much fun it was to be a lady!

  38. August 10, 2016 / 7:34 am

    Inès de la Fressange and Claire Chazal are two who are always chic, even when not dressed to the nines. Also Isabelle Huppert, whom I don’t usually see photos of outside her movies, but her characters tend to be take-no-$%*& yet BCBG.

  39. Sylvia Davis
    August 10, 2016 / 7:45 am

    My style icon is the mom of one of my college friends. When she was in her 50s, she wore perfectly fitting Levis, flowing silk blouses or lightweight sweaters, flat sandals or boots, and interesting ethnic jewelry. She had layered, tousled, un-dyed hair, a tan, and a fabulous smile. She looked absolutely at home in her skin, and quite different from most of the other moms of my friends at the time. They lived in a 1920s-era home with stark white couches (very brave for someone with dogs and 5 kids) and modern art. Now that I’m the same age she was at the time, I hope I can capture some of that same ease and grace.

    I don’t think I have one glamour icon but I gain so much knowledge from all the fashion blogs I find on line. There are several women I follow each having their own style including you! All of these women have encouraged me to face my 50s not as a dowdy middle aged woman but as a woman of some style.

  41. Naomi
    August 10, 2016 / 7:49 am

    Audrey. Always! Her outer elegance and grace were peerlessly matched by a great big heart she fearlessly put into acting, mothering, and volunteering.

  42. Juli Engel
    August 10, 2016 / 7:52 am

    My style icon was Katherine Hepburn for many years, and, like her, the staples of my wardrobe were simple sweaters and trousers. But now? Honestly? It’s you, Susan! By following your blog for the past few years, I’ve been able to transform my wardrobe into a simple, workable, and stylish solution for myself. My morning routine is a joy now, and I am consistently complimented on my outfits!

  43. Gigi

    Has always been Audrey; simple & classic!

  44. Cindy
    August 10, 2016 / 8:29 am

    I love Carolina Herrera’s personal style and her variations on a uniform. Aspirational, but with my bust line a button front shirt is not my friend (without tailoring). Mai Tai from MaiTai’s Picture Book has a wonderful elegant style. And Susan, I have followed you for several years now and you have helped me think a lot about refining my wardrobe.

  45. August 10, 2016 / 8:32 am

    Diane Von Furstenberg, I’ve loved her look and style since I saw her first wrap dress in the 70”s.

    My glamour icon is Diane Keaton. I love that she has decided not to have plastic surgery and that she dresses to please herself. She’s an actress but has many other interests and is very involved in architectural preservation and restores architecturally significant houses herself. Glamour to me is being true to yourself.

  52. Tricia Welch
    August 10, 2016 / 9:11 am

    I have two style/glamour icons. After turning 50, I was floundering trying to find a style that would transition me into this new age range, as everything was changing on me! I found Debra, at Stylish Murmurs (http://stylishmurmurs.blogspot.com.au/) and I found your blog. You two lovely ladies have helped me immensely, and have become my favorite blogs!

  55. Sherry N.
    August 10, 2016 / 9:40 am

    Diane Keaton, she knows her own style, enjoys it and doesn’t care what the trends are. She stays true to herself and it shows. She has a great attitude and aging for her is gracefully.

  56. Susan
    August 10, 2016 / 9:46 am

    There are so many – Diane Keaton, Helen Mirran, Audrey Hepburn, just to name a few. I love women who keep it simple so their personality comes out. You are also becoming one of my favorites as well.

    My mother and her four sisters are my glam style icons. They grew up during the depression on a Canadian prairie farm, all learned to sew, and all dressed well throughout their lives. I am fortunate to have been handed down some fantastic and unique pieces from one aunt that I wear on occasion. In the 70s I often wore the dark teal (with burgundy pinstripe) suit my mother wore to her wedding in 1942. The five sisters didn’t all have daughters but the ones who did passed on this respect and love for dressing well–not necessarily expensively, but well–to me and my cousins.

  67. Susan D.
    August 10, 2016 / 1:18 pm

    As a teenager, Jean Shrimpton was my beauty icon. I remember buying Yardley cosmetics (especially their eye shadow) and loving it. As an adult, I’ve admired Diane Keeton–not her clothing especially, but her hair and makeup.

    My mother was/is my favorite glam icon. She made looking glamorous effortless and I’m not certain I ever saw her without makeup until she was dying. She inspired me to feel beautiful on the inside as well as out.

  87. Karen
    August 11, 2016 / 8:42 am

    I loved reading everyone’s answers here — we have so many great role models for women of a certain age! I agree with most, but thankfully stopped trying to emulate Audrey early on, as it takes extremely petite features to pull off that style.

    The first thing that popped into my mind was the girls on the Twin Peaks TV show. While that show was running I was obsessed with copying their makeup looks — pale skin, perfect thick brows, matching matte eyes and lips (russet, wine, red). I still think of that look as the ultimate glam makeup ideal.

  88. Lori
    August 11, 2016 / 10:37 am

    I would have to say my mom. If there was anything she taught my twins sister and I–it was put some makeup on! I remember her taking my sister and I to the department store and having the lady show us how to put it on and then she bought some for us. My mom always looks well put together and at almost 89–she doesn’t look it at all.

  89. Amy Bizzarri
    August 11, 2016 / 12:30 pm

    My style icon is Lauren Bacall. She once said “I think your whole life shows in your face and you should be proud of that.” She always had an understated glamour coupled with confidence – that combo equals supreme style in my book.

  90. Alesia
    August 11, 2016 / 12:50 pm

    My icons are Katherine Hepburn, Cate Blanchett and Tilda Swinton. I love a woman in a good suit! With Cate and Tilda, you also get individuality and, in Tilda’s case, a bit of danger.

    I always liked Princess Diana’s beautiful, classic makeup. Now I’m also drawn to Kate Middleton’s look. I like makeup that you can see but that is not showy.

    My style icon is – first – my mom. Her style is understated and classic. My second icon is Eileen Fisher, also for her classic and understated style – but also for her innovation and risk taking.

    Audrey Hepburn has that something! The other icon I would love to mention is my lovely grandma. She has her very unique style.

    Thank you for the opportunity to enter, fantastic giveaway. I have never worn make up except for my wedding day and my daughters! So it would be a lovely start. My style icon is my Mum who was always coordinated, never left home without her lipstick on and, had fabulous skin and hair and looked good until the end of her life x

    My daughter Kate is my pick. She has an amazing sense of style which she did NOT get from her mother. Lol. It amazes me how she can effortlessly put together a great outfit — totally glamorous or the girl-next-door or anything in between. The same gifting applies in the area of make-up — high drama to simple, fresh beauty. She has worked hard to pursue a modeling career & I applaud her tenacity. Most of all, I’m proud of the beautiful young woman that she is on the inside. She is growing & learning & she rebounds like a champ if the need arises for course correction. She’s a fantastic combination of strength & beauty. Your mom loves you Kate!

    At the age of 19 and newly married, I met a woman that captured my ideal of what I thought glamour is. She went to my church. Always quiet in her voice…impeccable in dress but comfortable to be around, always. I realized years later, though, that what exactly made her so glamorous to me wasn’t her make-up (expertly done but not overly done) or her clothes, (top notch, classic but not fussy) but her very soul. It was the way she held herself, the way she cared for others and the way she walked with confidence but not pride. The way she LISTENED and you knew that she WAS listening and her responses proved that she was indeed tuned in.

    I loved her at the beginning and still do today as I see her on Facebook. She posts pictures of her Missionary travels to Romania and every once in a while I see her in the picture and realize that glamour never goes away when it’s rooted so deeply. She’s still, 33 years later, just as amazing as then.

    At 19, I wanted to be like her. At 42 I realized that other part that makes her so glamorous to me…that part that is comfortable in her own skin, takes care of her LIFE and her body and loves life and dresses for it in a lovely way.

    And now at 52, I choose to be glad in MY own skin and do the same.

    Thank you, Mrs. Harris. You impacted my life in a beautiful way.

    My mother is my favorite style icon. She graduated from college in 1948 with a degree in chemistry, physics and biology. She and my dad lived in Europe for several years before I was born and I never realized how elegant she was and how much of Europe she worked into our family life until much later in my life. It was just how it was. As a child I remember that she shopped at two stores in neighboring towns. One of the clerks had a card file with her size, colors, and favorite brands and would call her when new fashions came in that the clerk thought she would like. Another store had chairs for us to sit on and the clerks would bring the garments out for her to look at prior to trying on. I thought that was what every one did- until I grew up! My mother would always have a new outfit for me- and it was always an outfit- never a piece – for birthday, holidays, coming home for a weekend from college, etc. She could go shopping and pick it out and I would never have to try it on. Perfect fit! She just knew. After she passed, for years, students of hers would tell me that they loved watching what she wore, and could recall her outfits complete with accessories, from their school days- male and female alike. She was an icon.

    My style icon was my mom. She grew up very poor with only a few hand me down clothes. So clothes meant a lot to her as an adult. Everything was always ironed and head to toe matched. She took great care of her things. She had beautiful lips and always wore her red lipstick.

    My grandmother is my style icon. She dressed on a budget as if she had a million dollars. Quality counted and she used to show me the inside of her garments, and point out how it should look. In my sewing I try to emulate her advice.

    My own sweet mother! She was a nurse that cared for a lady in the hospital in 1945. When her son came home from World War Two, she fell in love with him. He was twice her age. Each evening as he came home from work we were told it was their time. I watched her transform from Mom to Wife as she readied herself,with makeup, perfume,, and jewelry. She did this ritual as if it was date night each and every afternoon as she prepared for him to come home from work. Although our dinner was ready, we were to occupy ourselves for the one hour of or their time when they enjoyed talking and having a cocktail. I watched a love affair of my parents each and every day. What a lucky little girl I was to have these wonderful parents . How glamorous they always seemed to me!

    My Glamour Icon is Audrey Hepburn. She was stylish, used great accessories, and was beautiful inside and out.

  107. August 13, 2016 / 7:04 am

    My 23 year old daughter. I always joke that she could wear a garbage bag & make it look good. She’s not afraid to try new looks & marches to the beat of her own drum. Her favorite things(besides her husband & family) are clothes & makeup. This is the same girl who said when she was 13/14 that she was NEVER going to wear makeup. I’m a little biased but she could be a model. 🙂

    I don’t even know the name of the woman who has inspired me the most. I saw her through the window walking confidently toward, and then into, the cafe where I was having lunch several years ago. She had short, spunky silver gray hair, high heels up to there, and the most striking lime green cropped leather jacket. Chronologically she looked to be around 60, but mentally, you could tell she did not pay attention to any number. She had a smile on her face and a sparkle in her eye. I will never forget her and the way she made me feel. THAT is the presence I want to have no matter my age!

    I have 3 style icons: Katherine Hepburn, Diane Keaton, and Helen Mirran. All three march to their own drummer by wearing clothes that fit their personalities. Kate had her pants and sweaters. Diane Keaton has her own style and is aging gracefully; just like Helen Mirran.
