Fashion FlashBack: Style Icons from 1950-2000’s

Vintage isn’t even the words when it comes to fashion in the 1950’s-2000’s. There were so many fashion divas that it was extremely hard to only pull the ones we selected. Kontrol has our top flashback fashion divas and we are starting from the 50’s.


1950’s: Marilyn Monroe

Marilyn Monoroe, orginally born Norma Jeane Mortenson was an American actress, model, singer, and major sex symbol. Not to mention a style icon. Marilyn was definitely not afraid to show she was sexy, and also loved off the shoulder and silhouettes.  Women to this this day still admire her style..

1960’s: Katherine Hepburn


Katherine Hepburn was an American actress in film, stage, and television. The actress was admired by her independence, spirited personality, and sense of fashion. Hepburn could be seen in a lovely blouses and gowns, but she loved a tailored look. High waist trousers, tailored suits, blazers, anything menswear inspired she wore and so many adored.







Tina Turner


Tina Turner is a singer, dancer, actress, and author whose success has spanned for more than half a century. Turner has received various awards in recognition for her talent, and also viewed as a style icon in the late 70’s for her amazing stage looks. Personally it seems Queen Bey may have received most of her tour inspirations for this icon

Whitney Houston

The one we all love. The beautiful singer, actress, and model is known for all she has done throughout her career. I am really excited to see her upcoming biopic to see how they capture her career and style.

The Bad Girl Riri has not only proved she has a great following for her music, but for her fashion sense and style as well. Don’t get mad at Kontrol, she was awarded Fashion Icon  2014 at the CFDA Awards presented by fashion her self, Anna Wintour. You can say what you want about the Unapologetic artist, but you can’t say her fashion sense and style is not amazing.
