Up In The Ear would like to celebrate the stylish, beautiful, influential and timeless Vintage Vixens, who’ve left their mark on the twentieth century and beyond. These four ladies are the cornerstones of what a majority of ladies in the western world fashion themselves on, knowingly or not because they have influenced the world of cinema, fashion, music, and style.
These four ladies came and conquered at a time where immortality was for the taking. These icons, shall never be forgotten in the age where people come and go because they’ve already ascended to the dizzying heights of influence and notoriety, these Vixens are the top level foxes who the foxes on the come up aspire to be…
Up In The Ear would like to pay homage to the Vintage Vixens of the bygone era. In the words of Coco Chanel “Fashion fades but Style remains”.
“Anna Wintour, OBE (born November 3, 1949) is the British-born editor-in-chief of American Vogue, a position she has held since 1988. With her trademark pageboy bob haircut and sunglasses, Wintour has become an institution throughout the fashion world, widely praised for her eye for fashion trends and her support for younger designers. Her reportedly aloof and demanding personality has earned her the nickname “Nuclear Wintour“.”
“Pamela Suzette “Pam” Grier (born May 26, 1949) is an American actress.

Age is nothing but a number, you should only be as old as you feel. Beauty to me is always found in the heart, mind and spirit of a person, you can never judge beauty on a scale of time. Never worry about getting older because love keeps the heart youthful, if the hearts kept youthful, the woman smiles, if the lady smiles the lady never ages.
