7 Style Lessons We've Learned from Anjelica Huston
Deconstructing the actress's sexy '70s vibe
Anjelica Huston is best known for her Academy Award and 17-year-affair with Jack Nicholson. (She spills the beans in her new, un-put-downable memoir Watch Me.) But we’re in love with the model-turned-actress’s fashion sense.
From casual cool (Canadian tuxedos!) to sultry evening wear (it’s all about silk), Huston’s singular style is as appealing now as it was when she was a '70s girl-about-Hollywood. Here’s our crib sheet of looks to steal:
Denim on denim can be tricky to pull off, but the actress shows us how to do it with lightweight chambray tucked into high-waisted jeans.
Flower power for the sophisticate means a sleek, pulled-back coif with a single orchid, as the actress donned with silky separates to fellow model Marisa Berenson’s wedding.
White blouses are the go-to look for anything from lunch with pals to a night out with your movie-star boyfriend--just add pearls.
Fedoras are cool, especially when worn with menswear, like a houndstooth jacket.
A signature hairstyle is de rigueur for a legend; the sleek mid-length bob has been the actress’s trademark from her modeling days to now.
Slinky evening wear is super sexy. Huston remembers that she bought this pastel sequin Halston number at a department store the day of the Oscars, then took only an hour and a half to get ready.
Bare shoulders make for great photos. Huston highlights her elegant neck and shoulders in one-sleeved dresses and strapless gowns. This look is the height of chic with the simplest accessories, like a jeweled brooch and an Academy Award.
