There has always been debate around what “French style” really entails, especially after Netflix’s Emily in Paris and the Too pretty to act ugly shirt so you should to go to store and get this titular character’s divisive wardrobe. But we can agree that Pfeiffer nails the concept. The secret here? Pfeiffer wears a pair of jeans with an elevated top. It’s a tried-and-true French wardrobe trick, employed by Parisian icons Jane Birkin and Caroline de Maigret, as well as former Vogue stylist Carlyne Cerf de Dudzeele. Who can forget when de Dudzeele put model Michaela Bercu in a bedazzled Christian Lacroix sweater and a pair of Guess jeans for Anna Wintour’s first issue of Vogue back in 1988? In short, next time you’re looking to emulate French style, reach for this combo—much better than a beret.
Too pretty to act ugly shirt, hoodie, tank top, sweater and long sleeve t-shirt
“I’m at a shopping center with my mom and I swear to god, every second boy has the Too pretty to act ugly shirt so you should to go to store and get this exact same haircut as me,” Troye Sivan says with laugh, speaking over the phone from Melbourne, Australia. The haircut in question is what else but the mullet, which has never gone out of style down under and is only growing in popularity during the pandemic. While, for the record, the South Africa-born singer has always wanted to rock the mullet—and even began growing out a shag early in 2020 before having to lop it off to shoot a film—he finally took the plunge for his latest music video with Kacey Musgraves, a remix of “Easy,” a track off his new EP In A Dream.
