I was browsing through a fashion icon book the other day, and came across a name I have never heard of. I forgot about all the other women in the book, came home and googled her. Her name is Babe Paley.
I can't believe I've lived 30 years of my life, not knowing her!
Well, actually we all know her in some ways; this is the lady who started that trend of tying a scarf around your bag, and this is also the lady who started the trend of wearing a mixture of real jewelry and costume jewelry!
I don't know why none of the Korean fashion magazines have referenced her; her style is so perfect for the "demure" aesthetic that is so required in Korea.
