style n. The way in which something is said, done, expressed, or performed
icon n. An image; a representation
When someone says 'Style Icon' you immediately think of someone like Keira Knightley, Jennifer Aniston, Coco Chanel, whoever is yours. But, to me a Style Icon is someone who is not just stylish but is dramatic and exciting. Lady Gaga, not the most 'on trend' but she takes fashion to a whole new level and her style is always spoken about - that is an icon. Plus, she's been on the cover of Vogue, enough said. But style icons are not just the ones who wear things from the hottest catwalk, they take fashion and they explore it, eventually creating a garment that is iconic in every way.
