Lucky magazine caught up with hot young actress Brit Marling, who is not only wowing audiences for her roles as actor and producer of indie film Another Earth, but she's wowing with her personal style the New York Times labeled 'Manhattan-era Meryl Streep with California surfer girl'. We're thrilled to share this fabulous story from our friends at Lucky!
Brit Marling: I’ve always dressed a bit differently, a bit androgynously, I always loved boy’s clothes: the color and cut of them. I love the way Katherine Hepburn dressed; I love the severity of it. It’s funny, all of the people I am thinking about are from the past, I don’t know why. But maybe people in the future will look back to now and think about the actresses of our time like “Oh that person was so iconic.” This is my least tomboy attire, like I should’ve said that rolling in oxford shoes, a blazer, and a tie. I guess I like to go back and forth between extremely masculine and extremely feminine.
Lucky: Where do you shop?
BM: I am really big on vintage clothes. There a couple places in LA and New York that I love to go. You really feel you’re finding something that nobody has. That is very cool, and then pairing it with things from this world. I am into the harem pants right now, with like men’s shoes and a t-shirt—it’s almost like a uniform that I wear everywhere. It’s comfortable, its casual, and it’s also slightly different than jeans. I am not a big jeans girl, mostly because I don’t find them that comfortable.
Lucky: Any specific boutiques you can recommend?
BM: In LA, there is a good place called The Way We Wore. In New York, Amarcord always has strange little finds in it. And then I love going to flea markets and thrift stores and finding the random, odd cashmere sweater or strange skirt.
