Style Icon: Cher

The stunning Cher is the Style Icon on Fashion and Style Police this month. I am a huge Cher fan. She is a global style icon. Her impeccable fashion sense is just mind-blowing. This stylish woman is in a league of her own when it comes to fashion, style, and music. I grew up listening to her hit songs. Her strong voice always gets my attention. No wonder Cher is the Goddess of Pop! Her six-decade-long career speaks for itself.

I am so in love with the outfit she is rocking here. It suits her body perfectly and she is wearing this piece with so much confidence. It is hard to believe Cher is in her 70s. She can easily pass for a woman in her 40s. Her body is in perfect shape. She is fitness goals for me, and her skin is simply flawless. This style icon is definitely blessed in the looks department.

One thing I really like about Cher’s style is that it is so personal. She is not trying to be anyone else, and that is refreshing to see. It is so easy to get carried away with what everyone else is wearing, especially with instant access to other people’s lives and wardrobes on social media. To have your own sense of fashion and style, and make it truly yours is amazing. Cher has done that for decades and she is still doing it in her 70s. Her outfits may be a little too much for me, but I admire them on her. She wears her pieces and accessories really well and she stands out doing so. I applaud her for that.

Style Icon: Sanaa Lathan

I have loved Sanna Lathan since seeing her in the hit movie – Love and Basketball. That movie was and still is one of my favourite movies to date. I haven’t seen much of Sanna Lathan since then but I did come across a movie she did in 2006 on Netflix some days ago. The movie Something New was really good. I loved the storyline and her character Kenya McQueen was fun to watch. The movie reminded me of this lovely lady and how stylish she is. Sanaa Lathan has a fit physique and she looks good in pretty much everything. I love seeing her all glammed up. She cleans up nice.

This style icon looks amazing for her age. I was shocked to see she will be clocking 49 years next month. She can easily pass for a woman in her thirties. I love her fashion sense a lot. Her personal style is quite relatable. I can easily see myself wearing most of the outfits I see her rocking. Her style is always on point!

The pink piece she has on in the picture is a beauty. It is a lovely stylish summer piece. I can see myself wearing it and I love the heels she has on a lot. The dress, hair, and legs are doing all the talking, and it works great. She is always effortlessly chic.

In an interview with Yahoo Style, Lathan talks about her fashion and style, and what makes her style world go round.

“In my day-to-day life, I’m not a girl who’s going to walk around and do errands all glam. I love comfort, so my style is whatever’s comfortable. In the spring and summer, I’ll wear a dress with flip flops; it’s easy. I wouldn’t necessarily call myself a ‘fashionista.’”

Comfort and style go together in my fashion world, so could explain why I am drawn to Sanaa Lathan’s style. What do you think of her style? Are you a fan?

 

 

Fashion Inspiration – The 80s Fashion

I was born in the middle of the 80s, so I am quite passionate about the 80s fashion. The fashion and style of that decade has a special place in my heart. For those who are nota ware, the 80s fashion is all about shoulder pads, polka dots, bold style, colours, and silhouettes. It was an era filled with ripped tights, biker jackets, oversized blazers and poof skirts. The fashion back then felt and looked completely different from what we have now especially for women’s fashion. The designs and colours were so bold and fierce. Women felt and looked strong wearing them.

If I could go back in time to a particular era, it will definitely be the 1980s. Here are some of the pieces courtesy of Harper Bazaar you would have probably worn back in the 1980s –

I wore pieces with shoulder pads well into the 90s. It was one of those fashion trends that just didn’t go away quickly which was great because I had the time to play around with the trend. Shoulder pads have a way of making the outfit pop pop out even more. This piece right here is so very pretty. The green colour is stunning and the design is so bold. I am loving it!

This is another piece from the 80s I really like. I was and still am a huge fan of polka dots. They’re so feminine and pretty. I love the way she is wearing this piece. The accessories take the outfit to a whole new level. It is simple but effortlessly chic.

I am happy to see current trends being hugely influenced by the 80s fashion. The big shoulders are somewhat back, the underwear as outerwear trend is really back and so is the oversized jewellery look.

What do you think of the 80s fashion? Are you a fan?
