I have a confession. I’m a bit of a Netflix-a-holic. There’s nothing I love more than wasting hours watching my favourite TV shows and films. Whilst I prefer good characters and plotlines to fashion (I’m more into Breaking Bad than Sex and the City) the announcement of Twin Peaks rebooting got me girl crushin’ on Audrey Horne’s wardrobe all over again. So I thought I’d do my favourite film and TV style icons for today’s post.
Obviously number one mention goes to Blair Waldorf in Gossip Girl (guess I may have slipped earlier when I said I don’t care too much about fashion in TV…) Does she ever look anything less than impeccable? The headbands, cute bow collars and my favourite look that is the Marc Jacobs smock dress pictured above just seals her status as Queen Bee of the TV fashion ranks.
Next up is the inspiration behind this post; Audrey Horne from Twin Peaks. If you haven’t seen the show already and love overdramatic nineties murder mysteries with the hint of the supernatural I’d definitely recommend it (it does go a bit rubbish mid season 2 though unfortunately) She’s got that 50’s vibe going on and is probably the reason why I went and bought 5 midi skirts in town the other day…
Finally is the girl we probably all aspired to be when we were 10, Cher Horowitz. How can anyone forget that AMAZING yellow tartan suit?! I’m still on the look out for one to this day. Nineties fashion nostalgia seems to be everywhere at the minute, and this gal is definitely the style icon to all the Manchester students at Warehouse on a Friday night with their scrunchies and tartan mini skirts.
Who are your TV and film style icons?
