In which I gush about Anjelica

the first time i saw Anjelica Huston in a film was when she played Morticia in Addams Family. i was probably around 9 or 10 years old and just fell completely in love with her. she was the first woman in whom i recognised what sex appeal was – in a cool, understated, knowing way that wasn’t garish. which i suppose is a pretty significant moment for a kid on the cusp of learning about all that stuff and would become my benchmark of what sex appeal should be. some say she has a femme fatale quality about her but personally i think the term gentlewoman applies perfectly to Anjelica (that might be the influence of all those Wes Anderson characters talking). a gentlewoman femme fatale… perhaps.

kirsten

so i said the other day that kirsten dunst deserves her own style post, and while i was cleaning up my computer i found some old photos i had saved to my ‘inspiration folder’ (before i started saving things online aka blogging everything i liked…) one thing i noticed about kirsten is that she’s years ahead of the trends; all these photos are from between 2004 – 2008 and she’s rocking stuff that girls are all wearing now (military jackets, breton stripes, clog type platforms, doc martens – the list goes on and on). anyway i’ve always loved her & find her taste pretty impeccable and effortless, will have to do an update one of these days of kirsten circa 2010
