The Icon #4 Florence Welch- Boho Rock Summer Nights

One of my current new favorite style icons is Florence Welch from Florence & the Machine. Not only is she striking & unusual, but she seems to be a true free spirit and a modern day goddess, playing by her own rules in both her music and personal style. She is not only beautiful, but also incredibly talented & inspiring. Her voice is pure & unaltered emotion. Her look is a mix of different style elements & has a sort of dreamy & flowing Boho vibe that’s offset by some hard edged pieces.

Follow her style for a bohemian rocker look for your summer nights out….happy summer!

THE ICON #2- Lisa Bonet- The Modern Bohemian

One of my favorite style icons from the 80’s and 90’s was Lisa Bonet who played Denise Huxtable on The Cosby Show. A true free spirit, she seemed to wear whatever she felt like & to do whatever she wanted. She was not only beautiful, but also a talented actress and to this day she has a look that can not really be defined in terms of race, age or any other categories. She is a true bohemian who seems to live a sort of gypsy life, dropping in and out of the Hollywood scene at her own will & time.

Her past style both on and off The Cosby Show was original & a true inspiration…..and her present “Earth Mama” look still represents the ultimate “Modern Bohemian”: my Icon #2- Lisa Bonet.
