When it comes to fashion designer Zac Posen's favorite fashion icons, he had a wonderful list to share with us.

Zac first cited the creators of these classic Hollywood styles—the costume designers—as his biggest inspiration. Zac mentioned famous Hollywood costume designer Adrian, who helped craft these fashion icons through dress. “He gave women in Hollywood the confidence to have a strength and power. It's really one of America's greatest contributions to style, fashion and womanhood,” Zac said. “It put women at the forefront of entertainment.”

Zac also credits various socialites, like Pauline de Rothschild, who have had phenomenal style. “These were people that had great flare and were self-created,” he said. “People that are iconic are those who have great flare, like Diane Keaton.”
