Five Traits Glamorous Women Have in Common

December 30, 2015

Every generation has its glamour girls ~ my ultimate glamorous women were Jackie O. and Audrey Hepburn, and Coco Chanel of course…  The appeal was not about how gorgeous these women were (okay, that too), but truly about who they were as women and how they saw themselves and positioned themselves in the world. It’s a state of mind that we all strive for. There are a few traits all these amazing women have in common, and when I feel down, exhausted, or overwhelmed, and want to stay in bed in my pajamas all day, I often turn to them for their lessons and the inspiration:

A True Glamorous Woman Knows Who She is And is Confident of Her Place in the World.

“Self-esteem comes from being able to define the world in your own terms and refusing to abide by the judgments of others.” ~ Oprah Winfrey

“One of the lessons that I grew up with was to always stay true to yourself and never let what somebody else says distract you from your goals. And so when I hear about negative and false attacks, I really don’t invest any energy in them, because I know who I am.” ~ Michelle Obama

Glamorous Women are Strong and Powerful Dreamers.

“Nobody gives you your power. You just take it.”~ Roseanne Barr

“When you dream, you can do what you like.” ~ J.K. Rowling

Being Glamorous is Not Only About What You Wear When You Go Out, but Also About What You Wear When You Stay In.

“A woman who doesn’t wear perfume has no future.” ~ Coco Chanel

“I can’t concentrate in flats!” ~ Victoria Beckham

“You can have anything you want in life if you dress for it.” ~ Edith Head

A Glamorous Woman is Often Simple, Chic and Elegant.

“Simplicity is the ultimate sophistication.”  ~ Clare Boothe Luce

“I never do anything that doesn’t feel natural to me. I wake up in the morning and I know what to put on. It’s my sixth sense, really. ~ Poppy Deleingne

Glamorous Women Have Unique Minds.

“In order to be irreplaceable one must always be different.” ~ Coco Chanel

“Since I don’t look like every other girl, it takes a while to be okay with that. To be different. But different is good.” ~ Serena Williams

“I’ve learned that people will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel.” ~ Maya Angelou

    I really liked this article because to me it was very inspiring! Unfortunately in today’s culture I find it hard to find many women that fit these categories anymore. But I would have to say my favourite glamour girls are Audrey Hepburn, Elizabeth Taylor, and Marilyn Monroe.
