Double denim Adriana. Played by Drea de Matteo
Music today is Frank Sinatra's "It was a Very Good Year". Mob classic.
And also the opening song from season two of The Sopranos. I know my trivia, people.
Oh Adriana. Aside from being possibly my favourite female TV character (apart from Carmela Soprano. And "Nurse" Jackie Peyton. So, Edie Falco basically) and being one half of my ultimate OTP - Adriana and Christopher, she is one of my unlikely style icons.
Let me preface this for those of you who aren't die hard Sopranos fans like I am. The Sopranos was the grandfather of the modern TV culture we are all enjoying right now. One of the original HBO series (along with Oz and Sex and the City), The Sopranos is a very character driven show centering around the Soprano family, headed by Tony - a panic attack having, duck loving, mobster. Yes, you heard me. Adriana La Cerva is the long time girlfriend of Christopher Moltisanti, Tony's hapless mobster newbie nephew.
What I love about Adriana is her constant sense of occasion - taking out the trash is an event worth tonging her hair for. She is the queen of the early 2000's New Jersey Girl style - big hair, long nails, tight pants and gold. Lot's of gold - Aid doesn't wear clothes, she wears outfits. But she's a simple girl at heart - she won't leave home without her gold crucifix and hoop earrings and that's what I love about her.
So do you think you have what it takes to be a New Jersey mob girl? Let's take the test:
Ripped jeans and white patent boots? Check.
Tight white pants? Check.
Colour co-ordinated outfit and Chanel bag? Check.
Pink fur coat? Check.
Mini-skirt/bare midriff combo? Check.
And my favourite?
Adriana looking every inch the mobsters wife. They remind me of Henry and Karen from Goodfellas - Just perfect. And check out Christoper's revere collar/gold chains combo!
Things I've learned from Adriana La Cerva:
1. It's all about accessories.
2. If it doubt, blow it out (hair speaking, of course)
3. Forget what everyone else says: sometimes you gotta go tight, low cut, cropped and mini.
