Style star: style & grace
We celebrate women who make us channel the better version of ourselves
What is style? It has very little to do with the clothing but how you carry them. Style is described as “a particular procedure by which something is done; a manner or way”; “A confident, effortless manner or technique”; and a “fashionable elegance and sophistication”. Basically, it's the higher version of an average look. Every generation has women who stand out when it comes to style. These women make us want more for ourselves. They impart their energy and urge us to really consider how we put our looks together. It's not just about appearance.
They become part of our internal style dialogue. These women's inner beauty and energy radiate outwards. In other words, they are stylish and lovable.
TRACEE ELLIS ROSS
She won her first Golden Globe in 2017, her mom is the legendary singer Diana Ross, and she's the lead actress in the American series Black-ish. This is one funny, talented and stylish artist. We all want to be like her when we grow up. She's all about women looking good for themselves. At 45, she still kills every outfit she rocks. Her style doesn't come across as pretentious or forced. She's not trying to be young but dresses for her body type, while still taking risks and embracing her youthful spirit.
Her beauty lies in her story – born in a refugee camp in Kenya, Halima moved to the USA at the age of seven. She became the first hijabwearing model to walk international runways when signed by IMG Models, a fashion industry giant. In June 2017, she wore her hijab on the cover of Vogue Arabia and Allure's July 2017 issue. She debuted at the New York Fashion Week in 2017 for Yeezy Season 5 and walked in Kanye West's show. She told the Financial Times, “I've an opportunity, through my modelling, to change the way Muslim women are viewed, to have their voices heard.”
This Barbadian beauty, singer and actress is the muse of women everywhere. In short, she's our 21st century style icon. She's mastered the art of dressing for herself and the camera. Her fashion is daring and she's willing to break the rules to have an elevated look. What makes Riri striking is her effortless style. Her wardrobe is every woman's dream.
