I Want to Be Her !

Why many 2000 -ies celebs, artists, photographers tend to copy classical style and fashion look of  60-70-ies stars? What is it: is it a kind of honorable  recognation for timeless style and beauty or a kind of plagerialism, lack of  creativity, pretty own style?

In other words, do 60-70-ies stars are modern Icones of style too and seem to be fashionable nowadays?

Model Twiggy (60-ies) is an fashion style Icon. OK, Twiggy, i guess, is a full time Ikon – not only for fashion lovers but for everebody.

I made a brief search throught Twiggy’s picture taken in the end of 60-ies and the begining of 70-ies and  fond a lot of modern “copies”  of her style, glamour, fashion, innocence, beautiful eyes with long drown eyelashes – all that things that establish her as an timeless Ikone.

Also during 60-ies putting advertising on portraits in magazines wasn’t popular. Over times the advertising industry introduce some new trends and photography for fashion magazines have changed. So there are fashion closes ads on “Twiggy”  through 1990 – ies.

What do you think?

Whether “copies” “play” thier role sucessfully and put honorable  recognation for  timeless style – or not – maybe it’s a kind of plagiarism in the XX century & luck of creativity?

    I don’t believe you can possibly say Jessica Stam is ‘copying’ Twiggy. Someone can’t put their hands to their lips without copying someone?

    You seem to be surprised and indignant that Twiggy has influenced a few designers and photographers… ummm she is one of the most iconic supermodels of the twentieth century, of course you expect some people to take inspiration from her and pay hommage to her style.
    If you haven’t noticed, fashion re-invents past trends.
