The women of American Psycho

Although most of the young men I know idolize the always relevant Patrick Batemen in their quest to become well-dressed, emotionally removed yet charming cyphers, I love the female characters of American Psycho just as much. The ladies (in the film played by Chloe Sevigny, Reese Witherspoon and Samantha Mathis) were the perfect neurotic, brittle blonde foils to the vapid faceless male characters. And they did it all with perfectly manicured nails and golden hair. Not to mention furs to die for and jewellery they earned doing who knows what. This is totally channel-able with some ostentatiously large earrings and a fur on cold winter nights. Alternatively, if you don't want to look like you're barely holding it together in the back of a taxi on the way to dinner wear a simple pseudo-suit of some kind like the navy pinstripe in Zambesi's upcoming spring range.
