Sounds like a little bit of history repeating
A recent UK magazine pole found that women think that Kate Moss and Sienna Miller’s styles are most influential. I love both of them myself and I always love what they wear – but WHY? Its because they are different. They wear things you wouldn’t EXPECT.
I have a neighbor who is 13 (yes, this is relevant). She is the typical ‘Dolly’ reading, Lindsay Lohan loving, Summer Bay watching type. And she LOVES both Kate and Sienna with a passion. Of course, she is far too young to realize that Kate and Sienna’s looks are so timeless is because they are re-inventions of old classics.
She thinks Sienna Miller is being daring when she wears black opaque tights under a short mini (um, can someone say Eddie Sedgwick?).
She thinks Kate Moss’ dark eyes and tussled hair are like, sooo ‘signature’ (signature to a certain Ms. Bardot – and not the band).
She also thinks the OC is groundbreaking TV (lest we forget Joey and Dawson, not to mention Brandon and Brenda). She thinks the Rouge Trader’s music is the best she’s ever heard (probably because she HAS heard it before. Elvis Costello. Jimi Hendrix.) – ok, that wasn’t exactly relevant…
I don’t mean to sound old and boring (I am a teenager) but if you want to be a style setter like Kate and Sienna, why don’t you look at some old inspiration? Old movies, movie stars, rock stars and models all had awesome style that is probably forgotten today. No one will know where the idea come from and will give you total credit!
If you don’t want to be too avant guard in discovering the past, you could keep in the same vein as Kate Moss by checking out some other Bardot trademarks like full-skirts, oversized headbands, boots and scarves.
You might be able to find something that really IS original, instead of just being another Kate Clone.
