Whether she was snipping off the tip of the right index finger on her baby pink gloves or smoking cigarettes on top of the toilet clad in nothing but a flesh-coloured negligée, there was something so lovable and yet unhinged about Margot Tenenbaum. The character and her outfits became instant cult classics and were a turning point in my young adult life & identity (yeah, I know… I had an emo phase too).
How many of the 27 signs that you are like Margot Tenenbaum do you share with the icon? Here is my list of must-haves for the “Margot” kiddos-style!
Firs things first, the faux mink fur coat, a staple of the infamous brooding character.
Some red hair clips to hold her sharp bob away from her face, a classic still today.
Now, this might not be for the littlest of girls, but baby blue eyeshadow is a must for the older ones… like me.
My favourite eyeliner, and I seem to not be the only one to love it #SaysAllure.
I grew up with these and now I found the perfect loafers for my girls.
The uniform t-shirt dress Margot wore in the film might be a little dated, but this updated version is a new classic.
A Hermès Kelly bag might be much for a little girl, but how about a great preppy Kelly green bag instead? Yup, I thought so.
