It would be fair to say in the midst of the minimalist hullabaloo, I like to think there is smouldering return of the musio - that music loving chick who hung out at the bar at gigs, never said much, looked uber cool and made you feel like a tongue tied nerd. I suppose Amy Winehouse could have had this accolade had she not got 'Blakeified'. I think Kate Moss aims for this attainment but the truth is this girl is a mystery, a dignified muse. The only time it was probably captured and embodied on film was Fellini's La Dolce Vita and the inclusion briefly of Nico.
Maybe this girl hung out at Bowie gigs, who knows but she sure did wear a simple little black dress to offset her nonchalant air and cigarette. It was all about the legs pre grunge and false boob era. No self respecting cool musio chick got drunk and fell over. They sipped, smirked and slunk off into the night...
Go for broke and the max with this Moschino number from Net-A-Porter embellished silk and jersey dress £1,155.
In the midi budget section is this Acne number from my-wardrobe at £270
And in the mini budget section it is Warehouse who turn up trumps with this little black dress for a mere 55 of your English pounds.
