Fashion Inspiration: Divas

Wednesday, March 21, 2012


I have always been a fan of old movies. I grew up with a total admiration for "old style" Hollywood divas.
Nowadays we consider Olivia Palermo, Alexa Chung or even Blake Lively as our modern fashion icons and I like them a lot, but I think we shouldn't forget about the glamorous Hollywood divas that can still be an awesome fashion inspiration for all of us !.
The pic above is not taken from a modern fashion magazine - it's Rita Hayworth, sporting this lovely shade of turquoise that is so trendy for the upcoming Spring !.
I have selected a few pics of Hollywood stars that I consider inspiring, I think their clothes and style would be so totally trendy also nowadays, what do you think about this ?.
I am leaving the icons Audrey and Marilyn for another time and I am focusing on the others, especially on my fave one, Lauren Bacall. Do you have a favourite Hollywood diva ?.


Sono sempre stata una fan dei vecchi film, sono cresciuta con una totale ammirazione per le dive di Hollywood "vecchio stile".
Oggigiorno consideriamo Olivia Palermo, Alexa Chung, Blake Lively e altre come icone moderne di stile e a me piacciono molto, ma credo sia doveroso ricordare le super glamorous dive hollywoodiane che sono ancora eccezionali fonti di ispirazione per la moda !.
L'immagine che vedete sopra non è presa da un servizio fotografico attuale, si tratta di Rita Hayworth, che indossa quella bellissima tonalità di turchese così trendy per questa primavera !.
Di seguito, una selezione di foto delle mie dive preferite, i loro abiti e stili sarebbero di gran moda anche adesso, cosa ne pensate ?. Tralascio le icone Audrey e Marilyn per soffermarmi sulle altre, in particolare sulla mia preferita, Lauren Bacall !. Voi avete una diva hollywoodiana preferita ?.

Lauren Bacall:


This net pattern is so modern, loving the shoulders !
Questa fantasia a rete è così moderna, amo la linea delle spalle !


Sheer shirt with bow, such a classy classic item !
Camicia di seta con fiocco, un capo classico e di classe !

A zebra top ! I love animalier and I sure can appreciate zebra printed clothes !
Un top zebrato ! Adoro l'animalier e sicuramente posso apprezzare abiti a stampa zebrata ;-)

I love polka dots !
Amo i pois !

Long black dress with a belt at the waist, so feminine and sexy
Lungo abito nero con cintura stretta in vita, femminile e sexy

Katharine Hepburn:

The suit can be so feminine and sexy !
Un completo dal taglio maschile può essere così femminile e sexy !

Love the shoulders of this jacket and the contrast with the white shirt !
Amo il taglio delle spalle di questa giacca e il contrasto con la camicia bianca !

The pleated dress, so trendy right now...how elegant !
L'abito plissettato, così di moda adesso...che eleganza !

Ava Gardner:

This see-thru dress would still be fab to wear !
Questo vestito con inserti trasparenti sarebbe favoloso da indossare anche oggi !

I am a sucker for one shoulder dresses !
Sono fissata con gli abiti monospalla !

Elisabeth Taylor:

Stunning red top with white belt, love the make up as well !
Bellissimo top rosso con cintura a contrasto bianca, mi piace anche il make up !

Gene Tierney:

Beautiful color block here !
Bel color block in questo caso !

  11. they are all iconic. i think rita hayworth was considered the guy's kind of girl. for me bacall is all about the wave in her hair. hepburn is all about the mouth. taylor is all about the eyes. i read a book about ava gardner once. it was fascinating. it's nice that we can look to them as inspiration again, & again. :)

  41. Sono tutte bellissime,perfette!!A parere mio,loro sapevano cosa fosse l' eleganza senza bisogno di avere delle icone, perché erano icone di loro stesse!!
    La mia preferita,che hai giustamente omesso per dare spazio ad altre,è Audrey Hepburn!Stupenda,un vero gioiello di classe e raffinatezza!
    P.S.Nuovo post sul mio blog,se ti va passa!

  51. They are all "bellas". I admire these legendary hollywood divas, their style was incomparable. My favourite diva is Elizabeth Taylor for sure. Besides her style her beauty was incredible.
