So many celebrities are sporting Bohemian fashion, (or ‘Boho Chic’ for short) and have been for quite awhile now, adorning themselves in scarves, hats, vintage jewelry, and a vivid mix of fashion flavors. In Bohemian fashion there really are no hard rules because the style itself is too eclectic, and unique, and possibilities are infinitely endless.
But what exactly is Bohemian style?
I found a great blog by BeatnikMrsBlonde who said,
“The original Bohemians would practice an unconventional lifestyle, usually in the company of like-minded people, often with a musical, artistic or literary pursuit. Bohemians lived a nomadic lifestyle, they were wanderers and adventurers. There were different types of Bohemia identified, although Bohemian is not easily pigeon holed, these were the five main mind-sets established:
1. Nouveau: bohemians with money who attempt to join traditional bohemianism with contemporary culture.
2. Gypsy: drifters, neo-hippies and others with nostalgia forprevious, romanticized culture.
3. Beat: also drifters, but non-materialist and art-focused.
4. Zen: post beat – focus on spirituality rather than art.
5. Dandy: no money, but appear as if they have it by buying and displaying expensive or rare items.”
Everyone from Janis Joplin, Jimi Hendrix, and Stevie Nicks to Kate Moss, Nicole Richie, and Pixie Lott have been spotted in a ‘Bo-ho’ look. (See pics on BeatnikMrsBlonde’s blog) But one A-lister has always had a Bohemian fashion sense with his particular look, and has almost coined it for other celebs to join his ‘king of cool’ style. Johnny’s signature Bohemian bad boy look has evolved over the years, from teenage heartthrob in 21 Jump Street to the eccentric Captain Jack Sparrow in Pirates of the Caribbean series.

In June of this year Johnny Depp became the first male recipient of the prestigious Fashion Icon Award at the 2012 CFDA (that’s Council of Fashion Designers of America) Fashion Awards show in New York. The award is only presented to an individual whose style has had a profound influence on the fashion world. Even though Johnny wasn’t in attendance, he was still lauded for his personal style, and Cry-Baby director John Waters accepted on his behalf. He definitely deserves the award, if only because he could care less about what people think of his personal style or fashion sense, and that makes him even more cool in my book.
