Thinking about this has made me realize that many of the actresses who inspire me style-wise evoke the same gothic fin-de-siècle essence that Klimt's subjects do. Here are my 5 favorite "Klimt women come to life."
With her Austro-Hungarian lineage, Rachel is natch Klimt-esque!
In her decades-long career, Fassbinder's muse has always managed to make the dramatic work. Check out that fan-like headgear from the movie Faust!
What can I say? Pure radiance: eroticism and innocence in one.
Growing up, Eva Green reportedly idolized Adjani. They do remind me of one another,
though I'd say Eva sports an extra dash of "wicked".
And last but not least, the woman I consider The Queen of Klimt...
People usually think of her as a comedian, a kooky character actress with oversized eyes
and a childlike, trilling voice. But she is also a haunting beauty equal parts angel and alien:
not quite of this world, but perfectly at home in Klimt's.
