Oh my! I have hideous hair today. My fringe grows at the of speed of light and it’s at this terribly unflattering length somewhere between Bettie Page’s cute crop and Alison Mosshart’s shaggy bangs. Ugh! Thank heavens for girly bobby pins and Margot Tenenbaum!
You probably already know that I love love loovve Wes Anderson’s films. I’m obsessed with everything about them; the stories, the characters, the cast, the soundtracks – all of the little details. Who can go past the monogrammed luggage set designed by Marc Jacobs for Louis Vuitton in The Darjeeling Limited?
Or the red beanies of Team Zissou from The Life Aquatic?
I can never pick a favourite film, it always changes depending on my mood. Characters though, I have a soft spot for Margot Tenenbaum (from The Royal Tenenbaums).
Played wonderfully by Gwyneth Paltrow, Margot’s mannerisms, her kohl-lined eyes, super flat, side-parted hair and secretive smoking in the bathtub always get me. So today, thanks to my annoying fringe and Anderson-adoration, I’m playing Margot with a bright red clip.
