The Fashion Icons To Channel In Your Wardrobe This Season

This week, in celebration of International Women’s Day, we’re saluting the style of some of fashion’s greatest icons who are still influencing our wardrobes today.

Thanks to Netflix documentary ‘What Would Sophia Loren Do?’ and an incredible performance in ‘The Life Ahead’, directed by her son, Edoardo Ponti, Sophia Loren is having a big moment right now. Her famous curves and unapologetically feminine style still get pulses racing.

And with so much media attention currently focused on the Royal Family, Princess Diana’s enduring style is again in the spotlight, amplified by Emma Corrin’s remarkable costumes and uncanny performance as Diana in the fourth season of ‘The Crown’.

Fran Lebowitz, the acerbic New York wit and writer, makes a strong case for picking one look and sticking to it for decades. Her signature uniform has received renewed attention of late, thanks to ‘Pretend It’s a City’, the documentary series directed by Martin Scorsese featuring interviews and conversations between Scorsese and Lebowitz.

From Lauren Hutton’s effortless play on proportions to Stevie Nicks’ bohemian flair, here’s how to get their looks now…
