CHARACTER STUDY: Sherilyn Fenn in Twin Peaks


I’m not sure what sets it off, but every few years I get a hankering to watch Twin Peaks again. Just recently I found myself binge-watching the series on Netflix and became obsessed with Audrey Horne’s look, which to me leans more ‘40s now (I had remembered it more ‘80s-‘40s, than strictly ‘40s). Her style—plaid skirts, sweaters, saddle shoes/oxfords— is very current. This time around, I also noticed Audrey wears a brown alligator watch in almost every scene. Ladies watches have made a comeback (well, comeback for those women who, like myself, gave up their timepieces in favor of a smart phone, but have grown tired of digging through their purse only to find out they’re 10 minutes late to a meeting). So obsessed I was with the look, I even chopped off 12 inches of my hair so I could recreate Audrey’s signature wavy bob. The outfit above was inspired by the character, with a slightly updated and more grown up spin.  Now, if only I could get those eyebrows…
