The Trouble With Icons...
How can you be a fan of someone, or purchase something that has an image of a certain famous person, if you do not know who they are, their work or their life? The fact is you can buy it, but if fan's of that person ask you what their favourite song/ film is, you're going to look pretty stupid.
I am a big Marilyn Monroe, Audrey Hepburn and James Dean fan, so when I go to a friend's house and they have a Marilyn poster on their wall, I would immediately be slightly happy that I found a fellow fan and ask them, 'What's your favourite Marilyn film?'.
I know there are some great photos of the icons, and they do look cool on your wall. But I'm just saying, if you're that interested to buy a photo/ t-shirt of this person, why not look them up? Check out their work? That way your purchase will mean something, and look even more better in your home. And trust me, these people aren't icons for nothing- when you look at their work you can see why they became so famous and admired.
Audrey Hepburn is an angel, you can't not like her. Everything she does brings a smile to your face, and her films are always full of humour, romance and entertainment. Check out Roman Holiday, Sabrina, Breakfast at Tiffany's and My Fair Lady. You'll fall in love with Audrey like everyone else.
You'll be pleasantly surprised with all of these icons once you've checked them out, and if you haven't, then maybe you'll regret buying that picture you thought looked so cool?
