Style Icon: Josie Packard - Twin Peaks

Tereza Šťastná

It have been waiting for this moment for many years. The Twin Peaks series are coming back to our screens with big part of its original cast. I certainly cannot wait and to honor this moment I want to share my yet another style icon, even though she's a fictional character, Josie Packard, played by Joan Chen. 

Josie  was a special character, setting her aside with not only her personality but a style. She was beautiful, mysterious and her personality changed episode from episode. Once she was the perfect criminal, the other very fragile girl. 

These characteristics are reflected in her style as she's the most seductive person even though she's also a bit tomboy. Her sex appeal is just too hard to ignore. It's a powerful woman, that got up from the bottom and took a full control of her body and she's well aware of her power and knows how to use it to her advance. That's exactly how she plays with the audience as well. 

As for her style, she is different from the others. They will wear endless combinations of sweaters and skirts, but Josie is wearing pants, dresses and even sinful lingerie and satin silk robe. 

She wears short pixie cut but gives it feminine touch with simple make-up. We can see her almost in every take with red lips and gold eyeshadows. Nothing more, nothing less. Her character is very complex even when it comes to visual presentation.

Style Icons: Baroness Pauline de Rothschild

Tereza Šťastná

 As I wrote before, I would like to dedicate some blog space to women that inspire me. And I want to start with a little serie about my biggest icons of taste and style, you may never heard of. When I browse the internet, all I see as someone's icon is Audrey Hepburn. Maybe it's that because we all would like to eat a doughnut for breakfast in front of Tiffany's while wearing little black dress or maybe because we all desire to have such a fun personality as Holly Golightly. I almost get the feeling there was no other.

 Anyhow, world's history hides way bigger gems. Icons more progressive then these trully celebrated ones. 

One of these icons for me is Pauline de Rothschild, born Pauline Potter. The daughter of influential american expats, living in Paris with real blue blood in her veins because her family ties lead to american presidents or presidential candidates to even first american families and now hold your hats, even to Pocahontas (did you know she was real?)

Here is a great video as a short introduction to who she was from documentary show Million Dollar American Princesses.

Baroness de Rothschild is not the typical beauty ideal but her charm and elegance is deffinitely radiating from her, plus it's obvious she had the courage to match her clothes in a way that seems revolutionary to us now. 

Like this gown and cigarette pants. And we are talking about the 60s and 70s, dear.

Pauline was so influential she even got into the hall of fame of "Worl's Best Dressed List" that is now run by Vanity Fair. 

She is most definitely queen of style because she is the original hoodie and over-the-knee boots wearer, not Kylie Jenner.

This lady definitely knew how to pose, better than Tyra Banks, just look at her legs!

Baroness is my style icon thanks to her elegant, sleek, innovative approach to fashion, it's a combination of very feminine and boyish altogether and I love it for what it is.
