I'm a HUGE Ali MacGraw fan. Love Story was a favorite of mine growing up, but the real love story between Ali and Robert Evans was like a Hollywood Royal Ever After... until the divorce.

I always found her style to be so effortless and chic and her beauty to be classic and simple. She gave brunettes sex appeal (YAY!) years before Megan Fox and Mila Kunis. Her long, pencil-straight hair parted down the middle and those magnetic brown eyes framed by a full brow remain timeless beauty references.  With Ali, you always knew what to expect. She didn't change up her look very much. Maybe she'd add a hat or some eye liner, but for the most part it was all very natural and understated.

I have wanted to emulate this look for years and I find that it is a look that never goes out of style, regardless of the season. Sure, it's a bit bohemian, but at the crux, it's beauty at it's purest form: natural, simple, elegant, no frills or fuss and classic. For these reasons, Ali MacGraw will continue to remain a beauty inspiration.

Here are some of my favorite looks:
