Byrdie Bell: Night Owl


Actress and model Byrdie Bell may look like the all-American, blonde, preppy beauty, but this oft-photographed girl-on-the-go is equally comfortable in a punk leather jacket and Kohl-ed eyes as she is in a floor-length evening dress. “I’m not a big fan of ‘the look,’” says the chameleon-like social fixture. “It’s not good when everything from makeup to hair to jewelry to shoes are all considered to the point where nothing looks like it means anything to the person or will ever be worn again.” And don’t be fooled by her wholesome looks—Bell cites rocker Patti Smith as the most stylish New York woman.
