2. Ingrid Bergman
When it came to 1940s fashion, Ingrid Bergman was one of the main people responsible for adapting the androgynous look in to women’s wardrobes across the globe. Quite frankly, we have a lot to thank her for!

3. Grace Kelly
Princess Grace Kelly (of Monaco) certainly was the people’s princess until her tragic death in 1982. Before this time, she had continuously wowed the world with her perfect fusion of ‘royalty meets Hollywood glamour’.

4. Audrey Hepburn
Not only did Audrey Hepburn star in one of the most iconic photographs of all time (seeing her gaze through the window of Tiffany’s in a stunningly elegant black dress) but her delicate, gamine sense of style is still the source of countless fashion inspiration today.

If we were to ask you to close your eyes and visualise 1960s fashion in your head, the chances are that a picture of Twiggy would enter your mind. So synonymous with the era was she, that her modelling back catalogue of brightly coloured dresses and bold makeup statements is still used all the time in countless campaigns.

6. Marilyn Monroe
Nobody encapsulates the sheer glamour and jaw-dropping sophistication of Hollywood in the 1950s than the late Marilyn Monroe. There has been no one since who has made quite such an impact when it came to mixing outright beauty with undeniable sex appeal.

7. Jackie O
There has arguably never been a First Lady since John F. Kennedy’s wife ‘Jackie O’ who has come close to making such an impact on the fashion world. Throughout the early 1960s, the American public were obsessed with Jackie Kennedy’s impeccably polished style and penchant for Chanel suits.

8. Jane Birkin
By the 1970s, fashion had altogether ‘loosened up’ and out of this liberal era came fashionistas like Jane Birkin, who was a huge fan of pairing a simple t-shirt with the era’s celebrated flared jeans.

9. Diane Keaton
No one has ever come close to looking as good in a man’s suit as Diane Keaton in her Annie Hall days. That’s not to say we shouldn’t all keep striving to pull off this unique look, even if we only look half as good as she does.

10. Debbie Harry
If you’re looking for a female punk icon to worship then you needn’t look any further than Debbie Harry. There has never been a better role model for throwing the rule book out the window and Debbie’s rocker style basically promotes wearing what you want and not giving a damn what anyone else thinks.
