Style Icon I: Bonjour Tristesse, NYC, Mar.08

In this Otto Preminger film taking place in the late 50's on the French Riviera, the theme may be grim ("Hello, Sadness") but the clothing is far from it. Cecile, the 17-year old daughter of a handsome playboy, can be found frolicking in a number of brightly colored swimsuits, but she never leaves home without one of her papa's old monogrammed work shirts. They're perfectly worn and soft and just the right length to be tied at the waist for a little sass. This laid-back look is offset with the occasional, and always superchic, cocktail dress or ciggy pant and sailor tee. Ummm, I think I need to raid her closet.
