I have always thought it was interesting to see how modern day celebrities compare (looks-wise/style-wise, usually - hey, what can I say, I'm quite vain!) to retro gods and goddesses. I've collected images over the years and just now have overcome my laziness enough to put some of them up. Let's see how these newbies stack up against the old pros:
Ann-Margret ... Isla Fisher
Not just do these two beauties share a similar shade of fiery red, but their penchant for wearing their hair in wavy styles tousled and teased lends more similarities. Strong eyes and dark, arched brows complete the look. Looks like Isla's been taking some cues from sex kitten Ann - just look at that perfect pout she's rockin'!
Bianca Jagger ... Penelope Cruz
The former Mrs. Mick Jagger is one of my style icon mainstays - she managed to make such masculine pieces as tuxedos and bowler hats into pieces appropriate for the modern 70's power woman. Her relaxed elegance oozed sexuality. Always sporting a loose fit, whether in a tailored suit or Halston gown, Bianca always managed to look like she was curled up at home in sweats (even when on the banquette at Studio 54). Her style has transcended to another foreign babe, Penelope Cruz, who mirrors B's loose masculine lounge suit, mussed-up hair, kohl-rimmed eyes and nude lip.
Edie Sedgwick ... Nicole Richie
The pets, the baubles, the dyed blonde hair, the long jersey dresses - nothing else can match the dramatic eye makeup that both Edie and Nicole are sporting. Though Nicole's look is arguably a Edie-Twiggy hybrid (mainly due to the slicked down hair and the way the eye socket is outlined in black around a white lid - more the Twiggy style than Edie), the sixties mod socialite look that Nicole is evoking here was a look all of Edie's own.
