James Dean: This month’s style icon
“Everyone either wanted him or wanted to be like him” and you probably guess who are we talking about…This style icon post is dedicated to the ultimate style icon of all times and the man whose immortal style never seizes to inspire, the one and only, James Dean.
It was his role as the timeless Rebel without a Cause that gained him an international fame, and made him an iconic figure of legendary proportions. He played Jim Stark, a troubled boy whose rebellious look with slicked-back hair, white t –shirt, jeans, red windbreaker and a cigarette in his mouth, will be imitated by countless number of fashion admirers worldwide. ..James carried that image in his everyday existence, becoming an epitome of rebelliousness and pure coolness. However, James Dean’s style was more than what he wore. His signature jeans, white tees and leather jacket would mean nothing without his unique attitude and personality. His effortless cool ensembles were always complemented by his body language which fused together a boyish vulnerability and extreme confidence, and this blend made him a timeless trendsetter.
