Today's post was written in collaboration with Veronica Stone, who asked me which lady's style I would choose for dressing like your favourite TV character.
I liked the idea because there are actually three girls whose style has impressed me while I was watching the series they played in.
No. 1 is Charlotte "Chuck" Charles, played by Anna Friel, in the lovely series Pushing Daisies, which was unfortunately over after only two seasons.
Her style is, like the whole series, gaudy, over the top and cute as a button. Vintage inspired dresses in bright colours, playful prints (most often florals) and always perfectly matching accessories. She's the quirky lively and nosy girl and the stylists really managed to reflect this in her outfits.
No. 2 is the great Carrie Bradshaw in Sex and the City (played by Sarah Jessica Parker if there's someone who doesn't know), one of the most popular and most copied fashion idols ever I think. I mean seriously, what's not to love about her looks? Effortlessly stylish, dramatic, playful - Carrie uses fashion as her playground. She was the one who taught us that it looks amazing to mix haute couture with fleamarket chic, ballet dresses with ghetto bling, lingerie with street wear. Patricia Field really did a fantastic job in creating the Carrie outfits, she's one of my favourite TV characters ever style-wise.
No. 3 would be Effy Stonem from the British series Skins (played by pretty Kaya Scodelario). Effy is a messed up little party girl, she doesn't care about what others think, doesn't mince matters and lives life to the fullest. Her outfits are a mix of grunge, punkrock and effortless coolness, sometimes jazzed up with some sequins and glitter. You could say she's a little gutter fairy with holes in her tights and perfectly undone hair and make up. That's what I love about her character's style, the stylists managed to combine the "I danced the night away at several rad parties" with a twist of girly and wicked.
So, what do you think? Do you like the ladies above?
