This look was inspired by Cleopatra, queen of the desert. She is very much a beauty icon. Her legacy lives on in books, movies and the fashion industry. The beautiful outfits designed for Elizabeth Taylor in the movie Cleopatra won Best Costume Design, with 65 costume changes, a record at the time.

However, Cleopatra’s other amazing qualities are sometimes forgotten. She was fluent in nine languages, she was a mathematician and she was a great business woman. She was a strong female ruler in a male-dominated time. Not only is she my fashion icon, but a powerful female role model.

She rose high not just because she was a magnificent beauty, but also because of her charm, her intelligence and her determination. She reminds us that beauty does not come only from appearances. Beauty comes also from having courage, intelligence and insight. She formed smart political alliances, built a massive military fleet and was a great leader. Cleopatra reminds all women not to be afraid to make our mark on the world.
