Best Picture-Inspired Style: The Artist

The Artist is about silent movie star, George Valentin, who starts to loose his relevancy in a new era of talking pictures. Peppy Miller was the perfect character to embody for this post because she is the fan who turns into a star. As a fan imitating a star, this choice couldn't feel more appropriate. The setting is 1920s Hollywood. The dresses have low waist lines and are still rather modest in shape and hemlines. The hair is short and curly. I wore this longer layered blouse to imitate the longer waistlines and loose-fit dresses. I decided to go with a faux-bob by twisting my ponytail and tucking and pinning it under in the back.

I altered the outfit for work by throwing on this H&M blazer.
