The Royal Tenenbaums came out in 2001 and Margot's style influence is still being seen today, although it's hard to say if the granny chic look is entirely hers to claim. Still when an editorial features a pouting model with an oversized fur coat, men's loafers, and a barrette in pin-straight hair it's easy to see who the inspiration was. And those are the key elements for channeling Margot: fur coat, barrette in hair, excessive amounts of eyeliner, striped preppy dress (or nude silk slip), and old man loafers. Add some details like a fancy cigarette, a faux wooden finger, knit gloves, a copy of Three Plays, a beat up leather purse, and sullen expression.

Suzy Bishop (who's style is actually a copy of France Gall) is one of my favorite Wes Anderson characters; she's rebellious and passionate and we have similar taste in books. Her style is also very distinct and easy to mimic. Key elements: 60s shift dress with large cuff and collar in pink or yellow, white knee socks, saddle shoes ("they're not church shoes"), and binoculars. You can go further into detail with blue eye shadow, green beetle earrings, a bit of twine around your waist, a vintage suitcase, or a copy of Coping With The Very Troubled Child.

The Grand Budapest Hotel was far from my favorite Wes Anderson film, but Agatha was a lovely figure within the film. I love her sweet style, but also her quiet industriousness and bravery throughout the film. Get the look: pastel peter pan collar dress, light grey knee socks, oxfords, crossed key necklace, apron, and milkmaid braids. Add some details: dust yourself with flour, put a piece of wheat in your braids, draw a birthmark on your cheek, and carry around a pink Mendl's box.

*There are many Wes Anderson ladies I didn't get a chance to include (Mrs. Fox or Margaret Yang), but these are a few of Wes's very stylish ladies to inspire your everyday outfits but possibly your Halloween costumes as well.*
