Spend enough time in the company of gorgeously bewigged and bedizened mannequins, and you're bound to start resembling them*. Such is the case for Jamie Gandy, a designer and stylist at Fifi Mahony's, and I mean that in the best possible way. How can I not admire a lady whose standard work uniform includes fake eyelashes and a rhinestone-studded manicure? Admire her I must.

Gamine Technicolor gypsy.
Who or what are your style icons?
