Guess who’s our latest crush? Jamie Dornan, of course. The irresistible Irish appeal… Just can’t get enough, can we? He has made a mega switch from starring in the world’s biggest advertising campaigns to bagging one of Hollywood’s hottest roles as Christian Grey, and scoring a BAFTA nomination for BBC drama The Fall. Jamie is at the peak of his career.
But he isn’t the first one to start the style movement with his shades of grey. Let’s take a fashion flashback and look at the style icons of yore and present day, who made us go weak in the knees.
Hollywood’s original rebel! Whether it’s acting or style, Marlon Brando was a trailblazer. This silver screen legend is still a style icon and inspires many.
Revolutionary music and revolutionary style. The undisputed King of Rock and Roll charmed everyone with his style, charisma and sensuality. From his leather jackets to the uber-cool eyewear, Elvis always managed to look dapper. We are still infatuated with him!
Tall, dark and handsome, he needs little introduction. Gregory Peck was one of Hollywood’s finest actors. Has any man ever looked so damn good in a pair of glasses as Gregory Peck did in To Kill a Mockingbird? Geek chic, that’s what we are talking about!
From donning a poncho to a three-piece suit, Clint Eastwood has done it all. And it’s not surprising that this 84 year old actor still impresses us with his grizzled looks.
Bollywood’s quintessential romantic hero, Dev Anand was perhaps the first trendsetter of Indian cinema. He drew inspiration from Gregory Peck, another style icon. This evergreen actor popularized scarves, mufflers and colorful jackets. Dev Anand definitely did retro right!
When talking about casual cool, we can never leave out James Dean. His style was minimalistic and effortlessly stylish. He made the public swoon with his classic greaser look – slicked back hair, denim, white t-shirt paired with a red windbreaker, and of course, a cigarette dangling from his mouth. We lost him too soon.
This megastar’s style is the perfect blend of classic, contemporary and quirky. Amitabh Bachchan has set a long list of fine sartorial examples.
