Helen Mirren comes close. But I don't have the occasions to dress like she does really.

I can't think of one person, but I can think of a time period. I LOVED and still do love the fashions of the late 50's through the early sixties. Approximately 1958 - 1965.

Not surprisingly, I am still a HUGE fan of "Mad Men" and I watch it, at well as old movies - to get style ideas.

In equal measure I love the style of Audrey Hepburn, Marylin Monroe, Jackie Kennedy, Brigitte Bardot, Ann Margaret - any of the 50s 60s girl groups, "That Girl", "Bewitched" the Alfred Hitchcock blondes.

I don't dress in costume - not every day any way - but I do incorporate the best of this time period into my wardrobe. I love sheath dresses, boat neck - or Bardot necklines, high heals, ballet flats, classic clothes that are feminine and slightly edgy.

So, my inspiration does come first from my mother, who passed in when I was 21. She was a former model and a TWA flight attendant - and from others in that time period.

Crush is a strong word, but I like the New England muted prep style of Gwen paltrows everyday wear.

PS - To all the comments about Kim K - I wish she would SMILE! I saw old pictures when she smiled and she was so much prettier.

Judi Dench and Helen Mirren. Definitely NOT Meryl Streep: Good actress, needs to keep her political opinions to herself.

What do her politics have to do with her style? It's possible to disagree with someone's politics while still admiring their style.

Complete crush would be Miss Fisher's mysteries wardrobe & interior decorating of flapper era.

Current fashion likes would be wardrobes of Donna & more expensive one of Jessica on the series Suits.

I like Blake Lively. Initially, I didn't find her all that, but once I got to "know" her as in her interviews, and seeing her sense of style, I really admire her. She dresses very well and doesn't even use a stylist. She even managed to look stylish while pregnant. She's one of those people that look better in moving pictures compared to still photos. (Compared to Megan Fox where I think Megan looks better in still photos, but not as hot in interviews, so I think their personalities and mannerism has a lot to do with it.)

I also admire Jennifer Lopez's style as well.

I am going to be honest and say hands down my personal style crush is .....

Kim Kardashian

The intensity...
The eye drama ....
The curves ....

Before Kanye, Kim dressed good and she was actually pretty. Now? Not so much.

Must be the botox or whatever she did to mess up her face, because after that, she never smiles anymore, and when she does, she looks strange.
