I love that Jane was never afraid of short dresses, I'm the same way, whenever I see a top I have to have at least 3 people convince me that's what it is bc I think everything's a dress :p And she wears white so well!

The pic of her in the Ossie Clark is such a classic.

And can someone tell me how she can look so good in hotpants so soon after giving birth?
She is magical.

^ Yup! I guess my tastes were formed by Diana Rigg in the 60s, but I am amazed that in that article she says how people said she was like a boy- I think she was/is sexy as Hell!! That big eyed look with endless legs - I guess I would have been very happy back in Swinging London!!

I don't know how she managed to pull everything off - she even made a wicker basket look good. Was there anyone before her like her? People talk about Kate Moss being a really original style icon and I guess that's not completely untrue but if you look at pictures of Jane and Anita you can see most of it is nothing that hasn't been done before.
