Pretty Pretty Peggy
Since cropping my hair and dying it black, I've found more and more style inspiration from the fantastic Peggy Moffitt. More than a mere model, Peggy was a muse, an artist, and an icon. Plus, no one else ever looked as righteously feminist posing topless as she did: modeling Rudi Gernreich's infamous 'monokini.'
I don't think I'm the only one taking fashion tips from this icon, either. Karen O of the Yeah Yeah Yeahs certainly owes some style credit to Moffitts' legendary Vidal Sassoon bowl cut!
