Time magazine has put together a list of “100 Icons in Fashion,” grouped into models, muses, editors and stylists, designers and photographers. While you could easily pick 100 from each category alone, they narrowed it down and some of their choices have directly influenced the way women have chosen to express their identities through their own personal style or the style they’ve created and inspired in others.
Among their 100 are out lesbian photographers and stylists, as well as women who pushed boundaries and could easily be put on a Pinterest board of “lesbian fashion icons.” While there are some glaring omissions (Marlene Dietrich, for one), here’s a look at some of the women they rightfully included.
