I Want to Be…Margo Tenenbaum

I have a special place in my heart for The Royal Tenenbaums…it’s the perfect cinematic combination of wit, humor and pathos. I love how Margot uses her appearance as an armor or test against the outside world. The effect somehow manages to be hard and unapproachable, yet extremely vulnerable at the same time.

This look is about four absolutely essential parts, leave one off at your peril! The single,  off-center barrette, the pin-straight hair, the Lacoste polo shirt and the heavily rimmed eyes. Even the fur coat is optional, but the others are mandatory.
