Lynne says:

Cher's epochal tartan outfit is the stuff of legend. It is really simple to recreate. I opted for two different shades of yellow up top, instead of going top to toe in tartan, to give it a modern feel.

Brigitte Bardot

Katie says:

I picked Brigitte as she is iconic. She wore a lot of tartan, from scarves to skirts. This is my homage to her, full skirt and waspy waist. I dub this 'Riviera Chic'.

The Craft

Lynne says:

The 1990s are having a moment. So too is the love for all things witchy - and it doesn't get much cooler than the chica's from The Craft. Think all black. Throw in some leather and lace to mix it up, but keep everything dark.

Anna Karina

Katie says:

This indie film star, of the French new wave era, has always had a closet to covet. Known for wearing primary colours with tartan, I thought it would be fun to recreate her Auld Alliance look.

Empire Records

Mini kilts and fluffy knits, anyone? Liv Tyler is a style goddess in this movie. Since we are coming into summer, I swapped the chunky boots for chunky sandals, but you can do whatever takes your fancy. This is such a fun and simple look.

Edie Sedgwick

Andy Warhol's most tragic of muses was the queen of monochrome. Plus, partial to heading out in her pants - which is perfect for poolside dressing. I went for a graphic print bathing suit, layered with a classic Edie polo neck and large earrings. Then there's THAT coat, to pull everything together.
