I recently discovered that actress Debi Mazar - she of Goodfellas and Entourage fame - is a huge vintage fan. A perusal of her recent sartorial choices has turned me into a Debi fan. Here is a woman who marches to the beat of her own drum, doesn't use a stylist, and always manages to look immaculate. Some women can master that effortless, grungy chic by throwing on a pair of denim shorts and a blouse and running their fingers through their tousled hair as they walk out the door. Think Kate Moss and Alexa Chung. Others, however, take their time to craft a look, with considered accessory and shoe choices, matched with photo-shoot worthy hair & make-up.
Personally, I think the second option is equally as worthy, and when you are a true fashion lover, pulling together an outfit that you love can be a cathartic, creative experience.
Head to to toe runway looks and safe glossy mag approved designer dresses are a dime a dozen on the red carpet, so it is always refreshing to see a celebrity who dresses in clothes that she truly loves, regardless of trends. And you've got to love a woman who proudly wears a brocade opera coat.
Interestingly, Debi started her working life as a make-up artist, and is known for her work with Madonna in the 80s. That explains her retro fantastic hair and make-up.
