REBECCA WILLA DAVIS WANT MORE TV PRIVATE ICONS? We also love to hate Hilary Banks' Bel-Air wardrobe

Which is why each Private Icon this month hails from an iconic, American neighborhood that was pivotal in the development in our country's music history. So get ready for a few really good flashbacks and prepare to pay your respects to some women you should channel every morning when you zip...

Not only did it prove Lea Michele could be a pop star (she belted out "Firework" like Katy Perry on speed), it also showed her character, Rachel Berry, was a bit of a style icon. Thanks to some scheming and a hapless cheerleader sidekick (oh Britney S. Pearse, how we love you), Rachel got her...

The rock n' roll icon struck a delicate aesthetic balance between earth and air, captivating fans onstage with her music - and offstage with her style. Today marks Nicks' 63rd birthday. To celebrate, we devote our current wardrobe to the mistress of American folk rock, long may she...

PRIVATE ICON: FRIDAY NIGHT LIGHTS Take a trip to Dillon, TX with some all-American fashion. Here at NYLON, you could say we're a teeny bit obsessed with NBC's Southern football drama, Friday Night Lights. For instance, we've been known to have lengthy discussions about Tim Riggins, Julie...

PRIVATE ICON: EMMA PILLSBURY We'd actually take this kooky guidance counselor's style advice. In the joyful, twisted world that is Glee, school guidance counselor Emma Pillsbury doesn't just counsel the mentally unhinged - she's a bit mad herself. Obsessive compulsive, yet giddy to the point...
