Film stills from The Addams Family and The Addams Family Values.

The first ever style icon I ever had was Wednesday Addams. I have a vivid memory of lying on my parents bed (it was one of those nights when my parents were going to a party and we had a babysitter coming over) and watching Lisa Loring play Wednesday Addams in the tv series from -64. I was spellbound. Later, when I first saw Christina Ricci playing Wednesday so perfectly, I just wanted to be her. I mean she was smart, sassy, ironic and beautiful, how could you not? Wednesday also launched, I think, my deep deep love for the gothic, and certainly for Tim Burton. I donned her look by putting my hair into braids and walking around with a solemn/sour face. My parents did not appreciate it, hehe. I've had a lot of style icons since then, but I always come back to Wednesday. She was just so flawless, your know.

Cate - Jealous! What I would have done for people to tell me that, haha!
