Style Icon: Audrey Horne from Twin Peaks

I introduce to you the seductive, sultry, charming, misunderstood Audrey Horne of Twin Peaks fame. If you don't know what Twin Peaks is, go out and experience it. It's hard to put into words, but I'll try: after a high school student is found murdered in a small logging town in Washington, the whole city seems to unravel. Ahh! But there's so much more to it!! The complicated web of relationships and secrets in this town is ridiculous and hard to keep up with, but the beauty of the show is that mystery and the quirky characters and the campy way they're portrayed. The show is humorous but can also be very dark. David Lynch, the creator (Blue Velvet, Mulholland Drive, Eraserhead), was, and still is, known for being funny and thoughtful but also for being a little fucked up.

One of my favorite characters is Audrey Horne, the daughter of a hotel owner and classmate of Laura Palmer, the girl who was murdered. She smokes cigarettes, loves an older man (FBI Agent Dale Cooper meow...), and wears pleated skirts. How bad ass is she? Plus that little mole and her sex kitten soundtrack that plays whenever she saunters into frame? Ahh!! I love it...
Bette, I'm telling you, you should watch this show. Even if you don't like it, it's definitely something you need to experience.

Next week, Log Lady.
