70 Years of American Style Icons- Glamour

Glamour: "You can do anything! That’s the message of the seven decades of female risk takers, rule breakers and style makers here. We celebrate them with the help of some very-2009 young talents."

I think that these photos are incredible! I adore the idea! Most of them are really recognizable and the models do look like the women they are portraying. Here are my top three favorite:

Alexis Bledel as Rosie the Riveter

Paula Patton as Billie Holiday

Hayden Panettiere as Amelia Earhart

I'm actually distantly related to Amelia Earhart (by marriage), so the above is my fav. picture! I am not a fan of the below photo, however.

Lindsay Lohan as Madonna

I think Lohan doesn't look anything like Madonna, or even herself really in this pic. As I have expressed before, I'm not a fan of Madge, but I can't deny that her style has been iconic. I just think this wasn't a good match up.

What do you think of these photos? You can check out the rest here.
