When asked ‘who are your fashion icons?‘ many vintage ladies site film starts like Marilyn Monroe and Elizabeth Taylor. All are wonderful and inspiring choices. Maybe I’m a bit strange, but all of my fashion icons are fictional characters. This is perhaps fitting considering I’ve always felt like a bit of a cartoon character! ;0 Starting with this post, the ‘fashion icons’ series will focus on my fictional favourites.
So, who are your fashion icons?
For me, it is Betty & Veronica of Archie Comics! Archie first appeared in 1941, with Betty Cooper and Veronica Lodge being introduced shortly after. I’ve collected Archie comics and memorabilia since I was young and even did a grade school project on them! *lol* Seriously, I did – and it was good!
The most famous Archie cartoonist is Dan DeCarlo, who drew the best Betty & Veronica. I have a couple of DeCarlo’s pin up books from the 1940s/50s, they are amazing – do check out his art! I greatly admire and am inspired by 1950s/early 60s B&Vs fashion sense and style. Be sure to visit Eep! Omigosh to view large 1950s Betty & Veronica comic scans.
So, let’s take a closer look at my fictional fashion icons!
