In my eyes, she had the best overall wardrobe of any movie star - living or dead. Costumes, everyday style, whatever. Just beautiful.

For this and so many other reasons, she inspired my Halloween costume this year (below). She also continues to influence my use of accessories, hairstyles, and the direction that I take the reconstructions and upcycled clothing that I create.
