one of my fashion icons: Angelina Jolie on always wearing black: ‘I like to get up so every pair of pants goes with every top, every dress goes with every shoe. *I’ve a very tiny closet.* Brad’s always laughing at me.’
Kate Moss and Sienna Miller (my other fashion icons) are similar in that their outfit foundation is simple. Jolie sticks to a color whereas Moss and Miller stick to a formula: skinny jeans, black or white t-shirt, embellished flats or boots. Simplicity in fashion is overlooked….it shouldn’t be. The excessive gaudy outfits of cultural phenomenon Carrie Bradshaw of Sex and the City were great…but she was fictional, as was her income, and closet space. The reality version of her is Kim Kardashian yet she can barely string 2 intelligent sentences together. Excess, like being high maintenance, is unattractive.
