Skylar Kergil and Finding Happiness

My freshman year of college, Skylar Kergil was a sophomore and a peer mentor for my friends’ freshman seminar. He was artsy, cool, and confident. My sophomore year, I was a tour guide and I attended “Everyday Leadership Training.” A panel of students spoke about their experiences, both positive and negative, about being leaders. Sklyar told a story about dealing with his gender identity. This was the first time I found out he was transgender.

Now, I don’t know if Skylar even knows who I am, but his story has always interested me, ever since that day in August of 2012. Today, I saw this Upworthy video posted by some fellow Skidmore students, featuring none other than Skylar Kergil. I watched his video and was awed and astounded by his story. We can all find inspiration in Skylar’s story – to be ourselves, to be brave, and to find our happiness. I’m honored to know you, Skylar – keep being amazing.

Style Inspiration: Edie Sedgwick

Edie Sedgwick was one of Andy Warhol’s superstars. A model, socialite, actress, and American heiress, Edie Sedgwick was another “It Girl” of the 1960s. Edie Sedgwick, much like Twiggy, was thin, mod, and embraced her boyish figure. Like Twiggy, she contributed to the change in modeling in the 1960s.
“I’m in love with everyone I’ve ever met in one way or another. I’m just a crazy, unhinged disaster of a human being.”
Edie Sedgwick

Style Inspiration: Twiggy

Twiggy changed the fashion industry for good with her looks in the 1960s. Twiggy represented the height of mod fashion, impacting not only the 60s, but every decade to come after. Twiggy, now in her 60s, is still a prominent figure in fashion and a role model to women everywhere.
“Being a grown-up woman doesn’t mean you can’t look beautiful, individual, and different.”

Style Inspiration: Audrey Hepburn

I’ve decided to do a series of posts on fashion icons – people who rule the fashion world and who we can gain inspiration from. Each of these posts will feature one of my fashion idols, along with a quote that exemplifies their take on fashion, womanhood, and the world.
First on the list is Audrey, obviously. Audrey Hepburn is most people’s go-to girl for fashion and beauty inspiration. She is the epitome of poise, girliness, and glamour. Audrey gets a lot of recognition for her influence on the world of beauty and she deserves every ounce of love people give her.
“I believe in pink. I believe that laughing is the best calorie burner. I believe in kissing, kissing a lot. I believe in being strong when everything seems to be going wrong. I believe that happy girls are the prettiest girls. I believe that tomorrow is another day and I believe in miracles.”
Audrey Hepburn
