Celebrating Women's History Month
March is Women’s History Month, and we’re happy to celebrate all the wonderful women who have made strides for us to have the rights we have today. We want to spotlight women who are not only known for the great deeds they’ve done, but have also shown a great sense of style while being a busy girl. Here are some of our favorites:
CoCo Chanel –
Coco Chanel is as relevant today as she was in the early 1920s. Growing up in a French orphanage, CoCo educated and created a name for herself. Not only did she spawn the glorified Chanel No. 5 perfume, she also revolutionized women’s fashion. She slowly weeded out the corset and emphasized making fashion comfortable for women. By borrowing from men’s clothing, she created the style of the Chanel suit, which is still worn by professional women around the world. You know the phrase “little black dress?” CoCo Chanel invented it! Previously worn only in mourning, Chanel morphed the color into a chic evening style.
Audrey Hepburn –
Audrey Hepburn popularized CoCo Chanel’s “little black dress.” Paired with big pearls and an elegant hairstyle, Audrey translated her on-screen fashion to the real world. Audrey was frequently spotted in modest necklines and diamond earrings and showed simple can also be chic. Most importantly, Audrey was a Goodwill Ambassador for UNICEF and a recipient of the Jean Hersholt Humanitarian Reward. Her passion for working with UNICEF stemmed from her experience growing up during the Nazi occupation of Holland.
Jackie Kennedy –
It’s been argued that Jackie Kennedy was the most fashionable first-lady of the past. She kept her style clean and light, always accessorizing her solid-colored outfits. From her baby blue to her pastel pink suits, Jackie led the way for colors of the 60s. Not only was she a fashionable role model, she also made extensive good-will visits to third world countries and became a book editor.
This #WomensHistoryMonth we are committed to appreciating the many women of the past! These role models inspire us to be a #BusyGirl even more.
