Style Icon: Samantha Stephens

Samantha Stephens was the best witch wife that ever there was, and she was so stylish.

"Bewitched" aired from 1964-1972 and featured some serious Mad-Men style fashions (or, I guess, Mad Men features some serious Bewitched style fashions). There's Sam looking good in a shift dress hanging out in the kitchen.

There she is in her cute little straight-leg, ankle-skimming pants and ballet flats using her pink vacuum looking adorable. But don't think Sam was only fashionable when doing housework! She was also a full-on witch and could do all sorts of things with that twitchy little nose of hers.

Darren, her husband, isn't really onboard for the nose-twitching stuff, but her fabulous mother, Endora, encourages her (Endora is a Style Icon for another time for sure).

And really anything Elizabeth Montgomery wears, whether she's playing Samantha Stephens or not, is absolutely adorable because it's Elizabeth Montgomery wearing it.

Natalie Wood is absolutely awesome, and, for the most part, she is a total glamour puss. She's famous for movies like "Splendor in the Grass" and "A Rebel Without a Cause" -- heavy, teenage dramas where she plays the beautiful love interest. "Inside Daisy Clover" is also a heavy, teenage drama, I suppose, and she's totally the pretty girl in it, but before she's the pretty girl, she's the tough ragamuffin. I love her as a tomboy! She's all smoking and blowing stuff up. Don't try this at home, kids! But do watch "Inside Daisy Clover"!

Style Icon: Roseanne Barr

I'm a fan of Roseanne. I love her humor and unapologetic loudness. I also really love her style these days. Like, I want to dress like Roseanne when I'm a grandma. She has some great cranky-hippy grandma style. 

This became most apparent to me when I was watching her short-lived -- but so good! -- reality show Roseanne's Nuts. She lives on a nut farm in Hawaii, and she always looks comfy and fabulous.

Scarves! Earrings! Little braids in her hair! Hanging out with the hippie boy who lives on her land! Also: I dig that she keeps her hair naturally gray hair. Dig it. 

She is just so un-Hollywood and so Roseanne. It was fun watching her hang out on her Hawaii farm, and I was bummed when the show wasn't picked up for another season. Oh well. I still say - Roseanne Barr: Cranky-hippy, grandma style icon.
