Girls and cigarettes

I know smoking is very harmful to our health, but if I said beautiful woman with cigarette doesn’t look attractive I would be hypocrite.

Rita Hayworth in The Lady from Shanghai

Lana Turner in The Postman Always Rings Twice (1946)

Amazing Marlene Dietrich in The Devil Is a Woman

Silvana Mangano in Gruppo di famiglia in un interno

Lauren Bacall

Gloria Swanson is wearing finger cigarette ring in Sunset Blvd.


Vivien Leigh is holding table lighter in The Roman Spring of Mrs. Stone. By the way table lighter is a very stylish piece of home decoration.

Natalie Wood in Sex and the Single Girl

Lady with pipe looks striking too. Very talented and very stylish Russian actress Alla Demidova as Laura Lyons in The Hound of the Baskervilles episode in Soviet Sherlock Holms TV series.

Simple dress + bright accessories = mutual love

Black Tie Jacquard Sleevless Dress, New Look, handmade of Swarovski Crystals Geo Cube Earrings red-pink and Geo Cube Bracelet red-haematite by German jewellery brand Coeur De LionThe Zurich coral bag (handcrafted as well) by British brand Milli Millu and Dulce red pumps, Jeffrey Campbell suit each other perfectly, I suppose.

Yellow, Black & Green

Premium – Printed Silk Shirt, Mango + High-Waist Pleated Trousers, COS,Empire Earrings, Capwell, Clutch Air 8’ Fir Green, Lancaster Paris + U-Look Pumps In Leather by legendary French brand Roger Vivier.

Playing Boho girl

Arcadia Braid Swing Top (made of pure silk, by the way) + Rhythm High Waisted Pants + Tie Mary Jane shoes, all by Australian label Zimmermann would look pretty well with Pink Tones Mix Vegetable Ivori Statement Necklace by LeJu and Sullivan Hobo bag by Rag & Bone.

About cliches, Russian girls and fur hats

They say each and every Russian girl drinks a glass of vodka every day and has a fur hat. Well that’s not true: Russian girls drink vodka every hour an have 7 fur hats for each day of the week.

So there is no wonder Julie Christie wore these accessories portraying Russian femme fatal Lara in Doctor Zhivago.

Western girls like fur hats too. Jessie J teams it with PVC coat (in my opinion fur hat would look better with wool).

If Jylie and Jessie have inspired you to try on a fur hat, you can go for Fox Fur Knit Stretch Beanie Hat by Surell. And if you support PETA and can’t stand real fur here is made from faux fur Murmansky Cossack Hat by Ruby+ Ed.

Lady in hat

Right hat look so sexy on girl’s head, especially when girl wears nothing else.

Romi Schneider in Max et les ferrailleurs.


Janessa Leone’s black Malachite hat with lambskin leather band or Joan (Cranberry color) by Betmar would look nice with Basler’s beige woolen coat and nothing underneath it.

Going to the theatre (or cocktail party)

Flannel Dress (98% pure new wool, 2% elastane) by Paule Ka  + Precious Pastel Ring and Citrine and Diamond Bracelet, Charles Krypell + Bazooka Imperial Clutch, Anya Hindmarch + Coco Crystal pumps by Sophia Webster.

Berets are boring. Really?

Maybe on others they look dated indeed but not on beautiful Faye Danaway in Bonnie and Clyde, that’s for sure.

You can wear beret like this

or like that.

Beret + jumper + neck silk scarf + pleated skirt. Faye Danaway looks modern and stylish in Theadora van Runkle’s costumes.

Julie Christie looks very innocent and so sexy at the same time in oversized black beret in Doctor Zhivago.

If you got inspired by these lovely girls, you may like to try on an elegant Torma beret (color Sky) made by Australian brand Helen Kaminski. Kangol has something to offer too: Modelaine Beret color Camel will suits for those who prefer neutral colors and flamboyant Red is the best choice for the hot girls.
