I talked yesterday about how much I love New Look, and I think everyone knows I'm a firm fan of eBay at this stage - so I won't bore you with all that again today. Instead, I went for the icons/idols topic. I don't have any personal icons or idols, but I do have people that I like a lot for various reasons. Here are the top three people I really, really admire.
Dame Helen Mirren
I admire Joss Whedon for much the same reasons as I admire Tim Burton - he has created an entire universe from his imagination. His creativity is just astounding, and neverending. I will always, always be thankful to him for Buffy The Vampire Slayer. It meant (and still means) an awful lot to me as a teenager, the very basic 'High School is Hell' premise spoke deeply to so many of us. He also gave us someone to look up to - a female who was strong, independent, but still human with difficult decisions to make. He showed us we could stand up for what we believed in, that we could be powerful and brave. I realize I'm completely fangirling here, but I don't even care. He's an absolute genius and one of the most creative and imaginative people of our time.
