Believe me when I say that I had planned on writing this post a couple of weeks ago before Lauren Hutton walked the Bottega Veneta SS17 show with Gigi Hadid.
The actress and model, who is now in her seventies, is an underrated style icon. She is never on people’s lists when they sort their style inspiration; she should be. But why isn’t she among the Jane Birkins and Marianne Faithfuls and Audrey Hepburns? Maybe it’s because her style is so now.
She hasn’t been ignored by the fashion industry, however. In 2008 Mango released a collection based around her personal style, the same year that she fronted a campaign for Mary Kate and Ashley Olsen’s The Row.
I don’t need to write anything more to convince you; see a selection of photos taken of Lauren in the ’70s and ’80s, and you’ll know exactly what I mean.
