Style Icon: Audrey Horne


For those who have never heard of her, let me introduce you to Audrey... Not Hepburn, not Tautou... It's Audrey Horne and her killer sense of style. I fell in love with this fictional character and her wardrobe the moment I started watching Twin Peaks. Played by Sherilyn Fenn, Audrey is the girl who puts the chic in the schoolgirl chic. Cool, stylish and seductively charming, Miss Horne pulls off an 1950s-inspired silhouette and sense of style like no other student at Twin Peaks High School. Exuding attitude and a femme fatale-like allure yet feeling vulnerable about the fact that she's madly in love with Special Agent Dale Cooper (who wouldn't?), Audrey is the bad girl gone good, affection deprived (her father runs a brothel and ignores his own daughter) and hiding behind a mask of coquette confidence. From saddle shoes to red pumps, vintage sweaters paired with pleated plaid midi skirts or high waisted pencil skirts, retro cardigans... Not to mention those feline eyebrows! David Lynch has created many inspiringly unforgettable female characters loaded with charisma and charm... and this one proves it right.

    O Candy Yum Yum também é giro a montes, mas já tenho um super mas super parecido!
    (E o Ruby Woo, aiiii o Ruby Woo! Acho que vou comprar o Russian Red e depois quando ganhar vergonha na cara compro o Ruby Woo. I mean: a girl can't never have too many red lipsticks, am I right?)

  6. I've never watched Twin Peaks! :0 It sounds good though! & btw, the cleanser on my blog, I do find it does reduce pore size but there's another trick for that. Just splash your face with cold water a few times after getting out of the shower/bath as it closes pores after the steam from your bath/shower opens them, & stops everything clogging them up :D xx

  10. Oh Audrey! I like all the Audrey's. She is so well dressed, I wanted Saddle shoes so bad but my feet are kinda on the large side so... All the plaid and sweaters is something I could do though!
