Everybody has an icon they look up to or admire, for their image perhaps, their hairstyle, their attitude or work achievements. I personally admire style and an 'image', and those who maintain this regardless. Victoria Beckham has maintained utmost glamour 24/7 for recent years and has expressed her affection and admiration for the style of Joan Collins, a woman who has never let the glamour and grooming slip. In a world of 'chav' culture and easily accessible fashion, so many people get it so wrong, or worse still, make hardly any effort at all. I respect Joan and Victoria hugely, as they take such pride in their appearances, making the most of what they have, and constantly looking groomed and impeccible at all times.
Joan ; Victoria ; I salute you! Long may you inspire people to take pride in their image, and silently campaign against the visual messes that see dressing up as the ultimate chore.
