fashion icons of today

Some of the most renowned fashion icons never really knew or expected they would be considered icons at some point in history. It is impossible to imagine fashion without its Hollywood influence; and vice versa. There are some mystic characters whose style went a little further away then the big screen, straight to the sales rack in every kind of store.

The most recent example can be the leathered jacket style worn by Harrison Ford in Indiana Jones; seen and admired for two decades but today with the new movie, it was reborn. Another leather jacket is James Dean's in Rebel without a cause; this 1954 icon was a favorite amongst the younger crowd. For the more classic men, Humphrey Bogart in Casablanca was the perfect model to follow.

Aviator glasses like Tom Cruise's on Top Gun were a sensation in the 80's and it has been brought back to these days. Black glasses and long black coats remind today's generation of Neo on the Matrix movies.
