What makes an icon – Illustrated versionby Roza Sinaysky | 09.08.12
There’s nothing more uncool then having an outfit wearing you and not the other way around. I can always spot the people who try hard to look cool. They always look uncomfortable and awkward, unless, of course, it comes from within—like for this bunch of style icons illustrated below. Not many people can get away with wearing giant cherries on their heads or larger-than-life capes but these guys can!
This fun illustrated guide to fashion’s biggest personalities is by Joana Avillez. Check out the little fun facts she added to each illustration. Fun and educational.
