Her/Your/Her Look

by Andrea Quinlan 

Christina Ricci as Wednesday Addams 

We love Wednesday Addams' sarcastic and creepy attitude as much as the way she co-ordinates black velvet schoolgirl minidresses with chipped red nail polish and braids.

To recreate her look, choose childlike dresses with high collars, cuffs and buttons.

Look out for blacks, charcoals, whites, velvets and dark floral prints.

Black tights and washed out makeup will complete your/her look.

Sue Lyon as Lolita

Lolita is our favourite sulky starlet. Her wardrobe makes us green with envy as well. As Humbert Humbert, the murderer with a fancy prose style says, "What little girl would not like to whirl in a circular skirt and scanties?".

To recreate her look you can have your pick of crisp cotton shirts, denhims, sneakers and full-skirted 1950's style dresses.

Check out the vintage stores for Lolitaish accessories like heart-shaped sunglasses, tiaras and school uniforms.

Bikinis, babydoll nighties and woolen sweaters which have been lost in the woods will complete her/your look.


  1. They would both be fun icons to dress as for Halloween too! I love the stark contrast between the two. What a fun little feature :)

  2. Thanks, Missa! This was definitely a fun piece to work on. As it happens I will shortly have a vintage Wednesday Addams dress courtesy of Anja of Clever Nettle!

  3. I get such a cool voice-over in my head when I read this! Brilliant.
