She’s actually quite beautiful under there. Don’t you wonder about the thought process that produces an outfit like this? Hmmm, let’s see, yellow checked suit, red blouse, fur coat, blue bag, yellow beads and feather hat…needs something…yes, leopard print tights and spectator pumps! Finito!
It would have flown to great heights without the fur coat. Not that I don’t like the coat, but the great shoes, tights and lovely blue of the bag have to fight too hard to cohere with all the amazing stuff going on at the top – that hat and her beautiful hair deserve a bit of space to breath.
Still, she looks exceptional and it’s definitely AN OUTFIT
Yes her face looks like Billie’s but the clothes-no way. Billie wore classic evening gowns or she wore frumpy looking house dresses and elaborate hats. But never leopard stockings and all that cluttered accessorizing.
I need to adjust my eye from all the military/minimalism/bubble tops/black tights to really take this in.
Once I do, I appreciate it. It’s brave (especially going to an Armani show – Mr. Tasteful), and part of the range of what personal style is all about. More women used to look like versions of this in the early 70′s when it was easy to find vintage 40′s stuff.
I say ‘hats off’ to her (literally – it’s the one thing I don’t like) for not giving a damn and expressing herself the way she pleases.
She is very beautiful, the outfit is very strange and I think it means something to her. What a wonderful capture. I am glad to have seen it. This is obviously not a style to emulate, but then some of the best runway looks are not for real life wear either. Very inspiring in an odd way.
