Fashion Fetish: Anna is in wealthy Bohemia splendor as she sports fringed scarves, auburn hair, smokes cigarillos, and paces nervously in fetching 1940-cum-1970s-style heels, this is a lady who can pull it together enough to do some serious accessorizing. For demure daywear she opts for a floral-printed skirt and red-lacquered nails, but for night-time melodramatics, Anna busts out a slinky one-shouldered silver printed gown, T-bar shoes, and completely wraps her hair in a black fringe scarf for that fancy-but-uncomfortable-Germanic-dinner-party look.

Copy It: For skewed evening parlor games, snap up this Alexander Wang one-shoulder dress and wear it with a black fringed scarf. Pair the look with Pour la Victoire Pascale heels. And keep your pacing to a minimum.
