Color Me Sad: Jane Birkin in Wonderwall

wonder_1216a
In Joe Massot's 1968 film Wonderwall, Jane Birkin plays Penny Lane, the ultimate '60s model with a swingin' London pad, lousy boyfriend and George Harrison soundtrack. Whether she's posing in spangled party knickers or in front of Jean Harlow posters in thigh-high stockings, you can be sure Penny is pouting, crying or looking confused in her sultry bangs and elongated legginess. For daywear Penny favors a brown toned palette, matching her woven wicker basket with a suede belted coat and tan knee-hi boots, and her Mod leather mini dress even looks sexy when worn with yellow hair rollers. Adding blue eyeshadow and green nail polish for a splash of kaleidoscopic color, Penny ties a purple sash around her red printed kimono, ingests pills, turns on the gas, and and waves goodbye to her cruel, groovy world.

Forget Penny's melodrama and steal her swingin' leggy look instead with the PYT scarab ring, a Susanna Galanis feather necklace with stones, the Kaleidoscope Obi by Vanessa Penna. Throw on the Grey Ant shiny mini sharp dress-er or the Alexander Wang bubble print tank dress and only wear Tsumori Chisato glitter tights,V PL thigh-high leggings or the printed Betty hi-rise hipster from Urban Outfitters around the house. Pair the Les Kbalieros boot from Les Prairies de Paris with a 1960's Mod leather jumper dress from Ebay or the leather mini dress from Marc by Marc Jacobs and the tan Boyfriend Style coat from Topshop.
