Melanie Ward in Blouson Noir
Pic via Interview

Today's dedication goes to the impossibly chic and brilliant Melanie Ward, original Helmut Lang stylist and designer of her (equally brilliant but short-lived) label Blouson Noir. A strong woman in strong, sexy clothes. Could anyone ask for a better icon?

The new millennial definition of icon is something I can't really relate to. She poses by her desk in perfectly coordinating manicure, short skirt, and long, cascading curls. SHE looks like... a lot of work. The power of image is important. And certainly, it goes a long way in conveying to a modern generation that you are "checking in." But when all the dust settles, and we are all a little less shiny, will you want to look back on a body of "work," or a body of work. Or better yet, let your work speak for you. While you, remain, unwavering you.
