There were so many style icons that influenced our lives when we were kids or teens, but sadly, some of them passed away. Some haven’s gone yet, but are a huge inspiration for other celebrities who are channeling their styles in a cute way. Many celebrities used to establish their own signature looks. Marilyn Monroe was bold, beautiful, and blonde, with a red lip and white dress. David Bowie was unpredictable, but eccentric and eclectic. Even modern muses like Kylie Jenner are establishing their own look! What is also cool is that modern celebrities interpret other icons’ styles very well and they look amazing!
Here are the top five of them:
1. Kim Kardashian
Kim channeled one of her style icons, Cher, for the most recent issue of Harper’s BAZAAR Arabia. Doesn’t she do it so well? Look at that long hair and doe-eyed stare!

Here is a photo of Cher, which might be one of the inspirations behind this shoot. Timeless!
Kim actually put her own spin on it, maintaining the same look but letting her hair down and shortening the dress, of course!
She channeled another famous female figure, Jackie O, with her adorable daughter North for Interview Magazine.
Emulating the former first lady in her own way, she had important key pieces like strands of pearls, and of course, the voluminous ‘do.

Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis, or Jackie O, served as a style icon for women worldwide back then and hasn’t stopped doing so today! Kim put a fresh take on the look, ensuring she looked like the iconic woman while still looking like herself.

2. Kendall Jenner
Kim isn’t the only Kardashian-Jenner family member to pay tribute to an adored female figure. Kendall channeled Marilyn Monroe in a video for LOVE Magazine a few months ago, and the photos are just stunning!
She had the classic red lip, short curled hair, and a smile that could light up the room. Marilyn’s one always did! Diamonds are a girl’s bestfriend, and so is lingerie. Kendall, the face of La Perla, was wearing different pieces from the luxe lingerie brand in the video.

Being one of the biggest feminist icons of our generation, it makes sense that Beyoncé channeled the famous poster of Rosie the Riveter. The poster symbolizes girl power. We can do it!

Rosie the Riveter was encouraging women to replace men in the work force during the ’40s. Even today, she serves as one of the first and most important pieces of feminist propaganda.
4. Karlie Kloss
Karlie, a timeless beauty, paid tribute to the beautiful Audrey Hepburn. And she looked stunning!

Audrey might not have had as much bling as Karlie does, but she still shines like no other in this iconic photo! Holly Golightly inspired so many women and their taste in fashion, accessories, and diamonds!

5. Katy Perry
Katy channeled the enchanting Elizabeth Taylor for the September Issue of Harper’s BAZAAR in 2015. She also put a unique spin on things, adding a fun pop of modern art and colors to her portrait.

Elizabeth, if we can agree, never needed color, props, or filters to look fun, fierce, and fabulous! Don’t they look alike, though?
