I worship Bette Davis. She’s not a mainstream fashion icon, but she should be. Bette Davis was a walking contradiction, so complex and deep. She dressed and presented herself with great class, but she had the courage and attitude of a fearless military general. She could take on the bawdiest of film industry men, never backing down and never abandoning her integrity. Her eyes seduced you. Her words won you over. She was a woman ahead of her time.
If Bette Davis was a shoe, I know she would be this pretty peeptoe pump by Marc by Marc Jacobs. It’s practical yet flirty, designed to support the woman who is ready to take on the world and win.
