Everyday the past influences the present (and even the future), so it is only natural that an online fashion editorial like Modern Legacy by Refinery29 would come along that focused on just that. Created in collaboration with Coach, it revolves around five aspiring fashion icons and the famous women who continue to inspire their style.

Modern Legacy by Refinery29 gives Annabelle Dexter-Jones, Tennessee Thomas, Amy Sall, Ysa Perez and Alex Winston some celebrity makeovers to channel their style icons. For instance, Annabelle Dexter-Jones channels Lauren Bacall while Amy Sall channels Lisa Bonet. Styled by Emily Barnes with hair by Adrian Clark and makeup by Tiffany Patton, Refinery29 shows "there's nothing more modern than a touch of the classics."
