Marilyn is an important part of fashion history because her name brings beauty and sensuality along with a hint of innocence. She owned every dress she wore in a unique and elegant style.


Her bold style and sultry way of speaking along with platinum blonde curls and red lipsticks were the actress’s most defining characteristics.

She had a particular liking towards sleeveless gowns, sequins, fur and bodycon dresses. Monroe had caught the paparazzi’s constant attention through her latest fashion looks.


Known for her iconic flying white dress to hot pink gown, Monroe created many timeless and unforgettable looks in the 50s and all of them are still regarded as classics in the fashion world.

She particularly loved clothes and that made fashion her passion. Still remembered as a very kind philanthropist and a loving mother of two sons, Diana was truly a mesmerizing fashion icon.

Even her casual fashion moments were as glorious as her elegant gowns. This jaw-dropping beautiful royal is also equally known for her casuals typically in vibrant pastel hues. 


Princess Diana seemed to perfectly know the right dresses for every occasion including polo, public appearances and airport looks, all of which she had donned with equal grace and beauty. 


3) Travis Scott

Travis is himself deeply associated with fashion because even before he collaborated with Nike and Jordan, the 28-year-old used to design his capsule collection for the legendary New York fashion label Helmut Lang.


Travis can be easily termed as one of the best fashion icons at present because he’s authentic. He firmly believes that fashion is an integral part of him and cannot be disintegrated from him.


He has his street style which his followers relate to and love him for the same. Another fact that makes him different from other influencers is that his fashion is quite accessible for the common folks.


4) Coco Chanel


Perhaps it would not be wrong to regard Coco Chanel as the pioneer in bringing gender fluidity in fashion. This French fashion designer is particularly known to make fashion comfortable for women. 


She popularized the sporty, casual chic look as the feminine standard of style and thus replacing the dominant traditional “corseted silhouette.”

The three pillars of her style were Elegance, Simplicity and comfort and she often stuck to using black and white colours in her outfits. 


Stripes were the common design in the dresses she designed. She had the amazing ability to transform men’s wear into classic comfortable and elegant feminine clothes.

Chanel was the first rebel in the fashion world and changed the perspective of clothing for women. Her timeless designs are still popular to date and are an inspiration for many modern outfits.

Labelled as ‘king of styles,’ Timothee Chalamet has a fierce approach towards fashion. His wardrobe majorly encompasses bright block colours, wearable luggage, embroidery, big prints, oversized knitwear, skinny suits and harnesses along with black boots.


He is known to wear outfits that cannot be easily carried by everyone including the floral suit he had worn in October 2018 through which the actor has challenged traditional ideas of masculinity.


One can also say that Timothee doesn’t take fashion too seriously and wears whatever he thinks suits him perfectly (although everything does suit him right.) You can see him wearing a 90s grunge one day and a perfectly tailored suit the other.
