Provacative Conservative

“A woman has to be intelligent, have charm, a sense of humor, and be kind. It’s the same qualities I require from a man.”
― Catherine Deneuve

This past week at the Canoga Park store my choices were inspired by Catherine Deneuve as captured by Helmut Newton. I feel like “La Deneuve” has been an elder stateswoman of cinema for a decade or two now but even when dressed in conservative clothing she still evokes  sex appeal. A prime example of the power of personality to bring something special to an outfit. The portrait in my collage is from a 1983 sitting, a few decades after Deneuve’s fresh faced debut, she is dressed in a simple short sleeved red sweater and midi red plaid skirt, but the clothes only serve to enhance a power that only comes with age and confidence.

You can recreate “the look” with a Celine knit short sleeved sweater, vintage pencil skirt or sailor trousers, and a Rodo purse. All the items features are from the Canoga Park store.
