My Favorite Beauty Icons

Of course, this list is far too long. I’m only including a few…

Grace Kelly. The woman exuded class and elegance. Without even trying. She looked like a princess before she ever became one.


One of the first prominent Hispanic actresses, her sultry performance in West Side Story earned her an Oscar for Best Supporting Actress.


And my favorite icon of all time…..

Katherine Hepburn

Hepburn wore trousers at a time when women wore skirts or dresses. She had her own style and her own way of doing things. Her face was perfectly sculpted and strongly defined. In a word, she was awesome.

Who are your favorite beauty icons?
