Recently, I was harking after a bag I could sling over my shoulder in a huff, after having a fight with my best friend/ bad girl of school a.k.a Angela in every school hallway scene. What is it with the fictional American high school? Does anyone actually ever get taught? This question has arisen from my careful research of watching the O.C, 90210 and Dawson's Creek. It got me thinking about the influence of American television shows and musicians on our fashion choices. Clueless has to be blamed for the knee high sock and loafer combo, but also the brilliance of tartan miniskirt (genius). Madonna for the studded black leather biker jacket and peroxide blonde hair, Katy Perry for prom dresses reinvention and fruit print fifties inspired halter necks. Screech from Saved by the Bell for colour clash and wacky t - shirts. Ahem.
On the subject of Mads, I thought she looked very vintage kitsch at the Vienna Film Festival. The cat's eye sunglasses were well accessorised with the dress which contained notes of the orient. A definite scene stealer.
