Happy Birthday to Lauren Hutton, who turns 71 on 17 November. BITD, Lauren was one of the most successful models of her generation (FACT: she’s covered Vogue a record 41 times) who then switched careers to become a respected actress in movies like Gator and American Gigolo, both with OMG-worthy wardrobes, natch. All the while, Lauren was owning the most famous tooth-gap ever and wearing the 70s so well that she became a maje style icon.
She was known for her effortless style switch-up between masculine dressing (think oversized men's shirts, wide trousers and boater hats) and slashed-to-the-naval 70s wrap dresses and playsuits. Her iconic status continues now: the Olsen twins are big fans of Lauren's relaxed style and asked her to model for their clothing line The Row back in 2008. Plus she's still queen of fashion Pinterest boards everywhere. We bow down.
