The American actress turned, royalty was often seen sporting kaftans throughout the 1970’s and from this picture, helped make the kaftan a part of resort fashion it is today.

Elizabeth Taylor

Elizabeth Taylor was often photographed in jeweled kaftans and palazzo pants, never one to shy away from a pattern Taylor was then and remains today, a style icon.

John Paul Getty Jr.

We love the kaftan styling on John Paul Getty Jr. in this photo and with his wife Talitha on a rooftop in Marrakech in 1969 this is regarded as one of the most iconic photos of the couple. Talitha’s styling of vibrant coat, harem pants and white boots in front of that stunning skyline is enough to make us want to buy a ticket on the next plane out!

Jackie Kennedy

This fashion forward First Lady was certainly on trend in this mint green kaftan by Valentino in 1967 while visiting Cambodia. We love her classic beauty and she truly captures the elegance of the kaftan for the modern woman.

Gigi Gorgeous

Recreating the iconic photo of John Paul Getty Jr. and Talitha, Youtuber Gigi Gorgeous and fiance Nats Getty exude the same style, grace and attitude as John Paul and Talitha almost over 50 years apart.

Paris Hilton

Paris Hilton is a Shahida Parides’ favorite customer and her Coachella looks are some of our favorites. This brightly colored long dress looks great with her accessories and these colors compliment all skin tones.

Kyle Richards

We love styling this Real Housewife and she looks chic and relaxed staring off into the sunset in our rainbow stripe piece. This best seller is great for vacations, or events held at home and Kyle’s simple styling makes sure that the dress is accentuating you!
