A tribute to her timeless style
Before Paris Hilton and the Kardashians, there was Gloria Vanderbilt. Born in one of the wealthiest and most well-known families in America, Gloria can be considered a princess in her own right. Her personal life was narrated in newspaper headlines even at a young age. She was a prominent figure in high society back in her heyday during the 1940s until the '70s. Some even speculated that Truman Capote based Holly Golightly, the eccentric heroine of his novel Breakfast at Tiffany's, on her. But between all the partying and lavish spending, Gloria became more than just a socialite but also a notable fashion designer and style icon.
Her most iconic legacy is marketing and co-designing the Murjani Jeans for women, which in the mid-1970s was groundbreaking as most denim designs were cut to fit the male silhouette. After airing a catchy commercial, the jeans were an instant hit. By the 1980s, her denim line was a best-seller — even beating Calvin Klein at one point.
On 17 June 2019, Gloria Vanderbilt passed at age 95. To celebrate her contribution to fashion, we listed the top six timeless style tips that we can learn from this style icon's best looks.
Cat eye glasses are always classy
No matter what era it is, cat eye glasses can give you that sassy yet classy flair. This versatile piece can also work with any outfit, from formal dresses to modern, casual looks.
Ruffles in the right places
Maxi dresses with boat necklines are a classic
Chic statement jewellery works wonders
Mini shoulder pads can also look glam
Even though we also love the strong, oversized shoulder pads, we can't deny that there's a certain elegance in wearing the more subtle version.
Turtlenecks will always be a staple
Sleek turtlenecks will always be a style staple that anyone can rock. You can pair them with jeans, slacks or even a pair of shorts and they will still look sophisticated.
We’re past the middle of June in a blink of an eye. Feeling out of the loop in this seemingly quick flow of time? Don’t worry and just catch all the latest updates from the world of fashion. From Cara Delevingne and Ashley Benson finally going official on Instagram to the newly released Ariana Grande x H&M collab — it’s all here. In case you’ve missed them this weekend, read on to find out about these exciting bites.
Cara Delevingne and Ashley Benson are officially together on Instagram
We’ve been seeing them a lot together since May, but we’ve never heard them confirm that they were actually a couple until now. Finally, Cara Delevingne and Ashley Benson gave us what we can consider an official confirmation of their relationship. In celebration of Pride this month, Cara posted a short video of them kissing from Her Smell, a film they both starred in. Cara tagged Ashley and the clip was accompanied by rainbow and heart-eyes emojis. Moments later, Ashley commented three hearts, which we can take as a sign of them going official. We couldn’t be happier for these two!

Prince Harry celebrates his first-ever Father’s Day with a photo of Archie
With the newly born Royal baby here, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex celebrated Father’s Day on Instagram the same way they did with Meghan Markle on Mother’s Day. Through their official account, @sussexroyal, the couple posted a sweet photo of the tiny Archie being held by Prince Harry. The shot featured the cute baby holding his father’s finger, giving us a first glimpse of his eyes. This was Prince Harry’s first-ever Father’s Day so it was an even more special day for the new dad.
