It’s my birthday! Yay!
This year, I decided to look into who I share my birthday with – my fellow late Capricorns – and see what inspiration I can draw from their lives during the coming year.
The only celebrity I can ever remember is Kevin Costner…so research was in order.
Cary Grant (1904-1986)
Silver screen star Cary Grant is known for not only his acting work, but for his classy and sophisticated sense of style. Whether it was a well tailored suit or a relaxed sweater and slacks look, Grant was always elegant and put together. This year, I’ll up the elegance factor and aim for timeless, classic looks.
Philippe Starck (1949- )
French designer Philippe Starck is known for being innovative and forward thinking. He has a signature style that’s lead to success designing everything from kitchen utensils, to furniture, to hotels – and even luxury yachts. This year, I’ll be looking to Starck for inspiration with style both at home and in my wardrobe. Keeping things sleek and minimalist will be a tall order – especially as I’m trying to make sure things aren’t too pared down. Finding a way to add designs elements and accessories to create a layered look is still important to me.
Isabella Jagiełło (1519-1559)
Queen of Hungary
Isabella was a powerful woman in a man’s world. She spoke 4 languages, was well educated, and ruled Hungary on behalf of her infant son. This year, I’ll be keeping Isabella in mind as I work to up my professional game and explore my entrepreneurial side. I may not rule a nation, but perhaps I’ll make strides in creating my own kingdom.
