Bend It Like Bianca

*Coco*
*Coco*

Most probably sprouting right after the release of the Great Gatsby Movie with Robert Redford (1974), the dandy look for women bent the gender barriers at a time when we were trying to assert ourselves in the workplace.  One of the icons of the day (if not the original 70s it-girl):  Bianca Perez Macías.

Sure she did dance the night away alongside Halston at Studio 54.   And … well … erhm yes, she was once married to … what´s his name? ohhh yes …  right … that Mick. But, what´s important is that she was never an empty shell but rather highly educated, knowledgable, witty, fun, intelligent, supremely compassionate and thus she could actually afford to play the socialite … for a little while.

Today this wonderful lady shines bright as the tough cookie that she always was. Bianca serves as  a Council of Europe Goodwill Ambassador, she is  Founder and Chair of the Bianca Jagger Human Rights Foundation, a member of the Executive Director’s Leadership Council of Amnesty International  and a Trustee of the Amazon Charitable Trust.  She has received numerous awards and recognition for her work in favor of Human Rights and has even put her life on the line in her native Nicaragua.

Style Info

*Coco* (At Fameshed right now!) – Shawl Collar Coat and Tailored Pants in Grey.  Yummy – Necklace.  Nicotin – Pink Cigarette.

Bianca Jagger used to wear this look with a dandy hat and a cane.  The latter probably because she had hurt one of her legs (I don´t really know).

Given, in spite of her shorter hair, she wore it far more feminine and sexy than I do, even in the perfect environment of Second Life.  But … then again, I actually never did move it like Bianca!

Cheers!
