Adjani’s Eerie ’70s Style: The Tenant

In Roman Polanski's 1976 film The Tenant, Isabelle Adjani plays Stella, the epitome of a sexy, bohemian-clad intellectual. Is Stella the love interest of a reincarnated dead woman? Or is she a compassionate girl with great hair watching her beau's slow descent into madness? Frankly, we're too busy checking out her spirited 1970's Parisian wardrobe to figure out the details. Stella frequents cafes, smokes Gauloises cigarettes and orders a small glass of wine while wearing shearling and glasses. She dances alone in a silver pendant necklace and black velvet pantsuit, wears a jumble of silver jewelry on her arm, while serving marmalade toast, and she throws on a white kimono and dark eye makeup for drinking after-hours tea. Her relaxed posture, naturally wild hair, tight leather boots, and zippered bag pulls together the effortless look, giving Stella a sexy sophistication while she pursues her spirited passions.
Throw away your straightening irons and don these looks for Stella's relaxed chic: The cord A-Pant by Acne, Opening Ceremony's black tux vest, Rick Owens Drkshdw shearling sweatshirt or look for a 70's curly lamb bomber jacket from Ebay. We love the kimono dress by United Bamboo and the fringe vest by Pencey. Try Loeffler Randall's platform boot with JAS MB move on bag and add the multi chain bracelet by Giles and Brother. A Catchfly necklace by Prismera and a pair of Karen Walker's Trixie Dark Demi sunglasses will always add little more mystery to your sexy Fall spirit.
