Yeah, her eyes manage to be haunting, lively, eerie, and beautiful all rolled into one...As if she's daring you to look and also daring you to not look. Tina truly cements the notion that presence + style reign supreme over clothing alone. We hardly have any pics of what she generally wore, yet she still manages to inspire and speak to so many... even after all these years...

I cried reading the "Lost Angel" article in New York magazine. It really stays with you. Thanks for sharing it with us

WHAT I’M WEARING NOW A cream Jasmin Shokrian dress, Louboutin shoes and a woven bamboo cuff with amethyst pebbles inside that my mother, Tina Chow, designed. With jewelry, I either do it or I don’t. I’m not into little rings and necklaces.

STYLE ICON My grandmother — the way she dresses is so effortless and chic. The other day she had on a simple gray men’s cardigan that she’d had for 35 years, and she looked great. I always ask myself, “Would my grandmother think this is very strange?”

FAVORITE ITEMS My mother’s jewelry. The longer I live with it, the more I appreciate the workmanship.

Excerpts from Nytimes.com Style section slideshow "Pulse". There's more on the website from China Chow.

There is a book in the library of my town showing a selection of her favourite garments, among some incredible Balenciaga, Alaia, Cardin, Dior pieces...

She's such an inspiration, and she reminds of a lot of Joan Chen in Twin Peaks

Quote:
“Chow invented ‘minimal chic’.”
Karl Lagerfeld, on Tina Chow

“The return to femininity reflected in fashion
has nothing to do with wearing ruffles…
You can show your femininity regardless of what you wear.
Your attitude will show it.
Femininity and feminism go hand in hand.”
Tina Chow
