Catherine Deneuve Stars in “The Woman with Red Boots”

The Film:
Catherine Deneuve plays Francoise, a struggling avant-garde writer in Jean Luis Buñuel's 1974 film "The Woman with Red Boots." When manipulated by an obsessed millionaire, clairvoyant Francoise experiences surrealistic visions with her chic style.
The Fashion:
While drinking the yolk from a pinpricked egg shell, Francoise wears a pair of bordeaux leather knee-hi boots over loosely fitted jeans, a ball pendant necklace, and an Aran bainin wool sweater. With her blond, backcombed hair, and draped cape trailing dramatically behind her, she flashes by old men in cafes and makes potential suitors draw straws for her affection. Surely Francoise could produce something more beneficial with her cute kinetics, but like us, she's too busy typing and channeling her mid-Winter savoir-faire to begin overtaking the world.
The DIY Fix:
Find your spectral chic in the mini length cloak by Lindsey Thornburg, a pair of Dolce Vita Luke boots, the single knot necklace from Lanyard and an Irish wool knit from Houndstooth Vintage in New York.
