Fashion Inspiration: Elvis and Audrey

Elvis Presley

Because of an article I saw online, I read that today is 33 years since Elvis died. So I thought to share some pictures of him and his iconic style. I like some of his oldest songs. As he got towards the late 60's-early 70's not sure I like those songs much. So I imagine die hard fans are in lines at Graceland to pay their respects. I do think some fans act is a bit over the top, treating him like a god. Anyway, his fashion is recognizable even in the year 2010! I love the jailhouse rock scene.

Thinking of Elvis and old fashion made me think of Audrey Hepburn too, another iconic figure. These images are from both the 50's and 60's. I think the picture of her sitting by the water, looks like a current fashion picture. And much of her style could be/is recreated today without clashing too much with modern fashion.
