Style Inspiration: The Black Bow Tie

Nora Zehetner photographed by Jan-Willem Dikkers for Issue Magazine.

I recently stumbled upon these gorgeous photos of Nora Zehetner from Issue Magazine -- you may know of Nora from her role in the indie Brick, or appearances on Mad Men, Everwood or Heroes, to name a few. Although, it seems she appears just as frequently in television as she does in fashion campaigns or the style/parties section of Vogue. I think she's stunning and has a classic sort of style that balances masculine and feminine so well.
"I'm a bit of a tomboy, but I'm also as girly as they come. I never met a sparkle, or a bow, or a stripe I didn't like, but I also enjoy minimalism. I guess I just really, really like to play dress up."
I particularly love this feminine bow tie with a blouse look, one that Brigitte Bardot definitely perfected in the 1960s. I can't really pull it off for fear of looking too much like a school girl, but I love it on just about everyone else.
