While these women were very stylish, and extremely classy, they were/are a bit - bland - for my more exuberant tastes. I think Carla whats-it (French PM's wife and former model), who is often compared to Jackie O, and Princess Mary of Denmark are very well-dressed, and classy. But they are also playing within the lines of what is expected. I like unexpected.
Which is why I adore Kirsten Vangsness' sense of style, both on and off-screen. She rocks everything she wears, breaks rules, makes new ones, and doesn't seem to care what others think - she clearly has fun with her style, and dresses for herself.
I also adore Dita von Teese' style - vintage femme. Like Ms Vangsness, she has found a look that works for her, and who she is, and goes with it, always.
Not everyone can pull off the looks that these women do - I couldn't do either. Both take a lot of confidence, and a damn sight more 'I don't care' than I have. And I think they are fabulous.
