Dress The Part: Jay Bell Reimagines Five Iconic Looks

Like fashionable fads of recent decades, my favorite five style icons are as varied as they are enduring. From an aged French rocker to a badass 70s porn star, their iconic style is uniquely personal and universally influential. Serge Gainsbourg, Peter Berlin, Wes Anderson, Jay Z and Dwight Eisenhower personify legendary swagger. Spanning timelines and genres, their style defines the rules of some of the best trends today.
