Love the Look: Heroine Chic

Not to be confused with "Heroin Chic": dark bags under the eyes, bed-head, oversized clothing, and dark sunglasses are some of the telltale signs that the subject may be 'heroin-chic'. Despite looking like a bit of a slob, these individuals give off an air of confidence and glamor, a certain haughtiness amidst their substance abusing, crucifix wearing, and generally unhealthy appearance. Kate Moss and Johnny Depp are both heroin chic. (from Urban Dictionary)

We're talking about the heroine: a mythological or legendary woman having the qualities of a hero. : a woman admired and emulated for her achievements and qualities. Our heroine wears a Liza Rietz Balloon Sleeve Top, AngelRox Pencil Skirt and requisite faraway look in her eyes.

Other herione looks we love: tenacious Lois Lane, androgynous Joan of Arc, activist Princess Di, glamorous and witty Katherine Hepburn.
