She has given such a long awaited powerful voice to the freedom-starved in Myanmar ( Burma ). She is a beautiful symbol of truthfulness, non-violence, originality, perseverance and relentless courage. Nobel peace prize laureate and pro-democracy leader Aung San Suu Kyi evoked jubilation amongst her supporters after being released from house arrest, hopefully for good.
Aung San Suu Kyi was awarded the Jawaharlal Nehru Award for International Understanding in 1993. Along with being the recipient of the Nobel Peace Prize in 1991 she is also the recipient of the Rafto Prize and the Sakharov Prize for Freedom of Thought in 1990. You can get this uber-cool poster designed by Shepard Fairey on the website of the Human Rights Action Centre.
I salute you Aung San Suu kyi and what you have stood for. You have more style and beauty than every single one of Karl Lagerfeld’s muses combined.
You are my new style icon. I will wear flowers in my hair as an ode to you. Thank you.
