As the Tik Tok generation make more money the accessibility of luxury car brands such as the Rolls Royce is a luxury car that woman of a younger generation can relate to. Young celebrities such as the Kardashian billionaire Kylie lead the way to financial success and independence. That young women can own a Rolls Royce of their dream. Cristiano’s girlfriend is always been escorted in the Rolls Royce Cullinan when touring around Spain and Portugal for her Netflix reality show, called I Am Georgina. Georgina Rodríguez a young rich mom, influencer, and businesswoman had to create her own career alongside famous footballer Cristiano Ronaldo. With a budget that many young women can only dream of. Georgina paves the way for hope for young girls to become her. And she is always in the back seat of the Rolls Royce, she did also gift the footballer star a Rolls Royce last year, they own several.

As a woman in my fifties, I have driven the largest SUV in the world, Cullinan and the Rolls Royce Phantom for my luxury magazine called MenStyleFashion. I want to inspire any woman that driving a Rolls Royce has so many empowering aspects to living life to the full! It is the parting of the red sea when driving it. Now one will ever get in the way of a car that demands. success.

Luxury is something one can feel with the heart!

There is a big difference between driving an SUV  Rolls Royce compared to the Phantom was very empowering as a female because it gave me rare access to locations that not many people ever get to. It’s a car for the red-carpet moments in life. It is very rare to see women driving such large cars because we are told that it is intimidating and the skills to drive it, require confidence when parking, driving and waving to all people starting at me.

Don’t let this marketing ploy not drive a Rolls Royce. many young women now will drive these cars.

From the onset, I pondered historically how many women really get into the driver’s seat of cars like this. When I was driving I made sure what I wore gave out the image I wanted to portray when driving the cars. get your best clothes out and don’t stray away from your personal style.

Fashion for me has all been about lifestyle and the role play I am encountering when driving any luxury car. To the ladies out there, if given the opportunity don’t let the car industry convince you that driving obscene massive cars like a Rolls Royce belongs only to men.

Rolls Royce and other car companies are embracing my request with gusto! In 2023,  I am continuing mission to empower more women to get behind the wheel of luxury cars.

Spirit Of Ecstasy

The Spirit of Ecstasy, also called “Emily”, “Silver Lady” or “Flying Lady”, was designed by Sykes, a graduate of London’s Royal College of Art and carries with it a story about secret passion between Montagu, a second Baron Montagu of Beaulieu after 1905, a pioneer of the automobile movement, and editor of The Car Illustrated magazine from 1902, and the model for the emblem,  Eleanor Velasco Thornton.

The Spirit of Ecstasy is the bonnet ornament Rolls Royce Cars. It is in the form of a woman leaning forwards with her arms outstretched behind and above her. Billowing cloth runs from her arms to her back, resembling wings.

Eleanor (also known as Thorn) was the secretary of John Walter, who fell in love with her in 1902 when she worked for him on the aforesaid motoring magazine. Their secret love was to remain hidden, limited to their circle of friends, for more than a decade. The reason for the secrecy was Eleanor’s impoverished social and economic status, which was an obstacle to their love. On the other hand, Montagu had been married to Lady Cecil Victoria Constance Kerr since 1889.

Starlight Headliner

Women who buy a Rolls Royce want to create their own haute couture on wheels. In the world of Rolls Royce once you have created your very own colour or light idea that belongs to you within the factory. it is stored as a number bespoke to you. Others have to ask for permission to use your design ideas if they want to copy yours. A wonderful legacy one can leave behind. Today Rolls Royce is led by its customers regarding interior design ideas. The Starlight Headliner concept was created by a customer

The Starlight Headliner covers the whole interior of the roof of the Phantom. The lights can be up to 1340 and all are individually hand-stitched. I saw this being done at Goodwood, which takes about 15 hours to complete. It is a work of art, and the feel-good factor when driving, or sitting in the back is priceless.

I often had a coffee break in the back seat has a whole new definition of luxury!  One morning I started driving at 5 am and it was so beautiful to be greeted by the Starlight Headliner, for me, this is a very clever invention! And a wonderful working space too when on the road.

Why do Women Need To Be In The Driver’s seat?

The new SUV Rolls Royce Cullinan was long overdue. I was told that 50% of Cullinan buyers were women, this didn’t surprise me. I know that Rolls Royce’s younger buyers will create a luxury lifestyle that allows more women to get behind the driver’s seat. The new generation of Rolls Royce drivers wants to be seen within the lifestyle but also experience what luxury cars have to offer. Rolls Royce today is about driving these cars as one wants to.

As women, we need to just for our own emotional well-being! At this level dominating the car industry in a Rolls Royce is ever so fun! It is different from a Phantom drive!

What to Wear To Stand Out – Cowboy Outfit

I am an eccentric personality that draws attention no matter what I drive. I chose to wear a Stetson hat because it has a massive history and has withstood the test of time regarding business adversities. I wore my silk Hermes scarf due to its iconic status over the years and the various different colours it has. Regarding accessories, I wore YVL 22 Russian gold-plated vintage pieces which are no longer available on the market. I choose niche products for luxury driving for 2019.  Hence, my bespoke feather hair extensions are not accessible to all. There is a long process in making these, flown in from Bali.  For foot comfort, I am from an Italian background and when driving my leather crossed stitched knee-high boots are my driving statement.

On this occasion everything black and vintage heavy cloth, fabrics were worn I don’t follow trends regarding fashion!

This year as women get more vocal regarding equality I like to think in my case as the owner of MenStyleFashion, actions, speak louder than words. Ladies driving a Rolls Royce has to be done, words can’t explain the driving experience. Don’t feel you can never aspire to any of these cars. rent one with friends and have a go. Never allow negativity from others that Rolls Royce is the car for men only. It all comes down to a determined mindset and in 2023 where women are richer than ever. Grwo that dream into a reality.
