Muffy Morton

Occupation:
Sales at Industrial Color/Broad in Residence at OriginalBroad.com
What she’s wearing:
Rachel Roy jumpsuit, white blazer, silver pumps
Hometown:
New York, NY
Describe your style:
Power chic—as if Jackie O and Yves Saint Laurent had a fashion love child. I always center looks around silhouette and for my figure that means a constant emphasis on shoulder and waist. My sweet spot is where masculine and feminine collide while keeping tongue planted firmly in cheek. Being a broad means understanding your eccentricities, accepting them as your strengths, and playing them up.
Latest obsession:
My Nespresso Pixie. Caffeine is always the key to global domination.
Any beauty secrets?

Less is more. Products matter less than habit. Great beauties and fashion icons have a common trait of being religious, if not fanatical about their rituals. Find one that works and be diligent. I never leave the house without Lancôme’s Modèle Sourcils eyebrow gel and Lush Cosmetics’ “Feeling Younger” skin tint illuminator.

Your saved eBay search words:

Jumpsuit, white tux blazer, military jacket, bouclé jacket, vintage scarf, gold cuff.

Who is your style icon?

One half Yves Saint Laurent, one half Hitchcock heroine.

Next on your must-buy list:

A strapless white sweetheart chiffon dress à la Grace Kelly in “To Catch a Thief.” With a black tux blazer for evening or a long belted vest for day.

Favorite eBay find ever:

Vintage Red Wing boots.

You collect…

Coats, jackets, blazers and vests. Outerwear makes an outfit.

Edith Head’s archives.

Guilty pleasure:

Watching old films in bed while reading mags on Next Issue for iPad and sipping champagne with fluffy pillows. Glamour is all about comfort and, yes, metered indulgence.

Dream getaway:

A boat trip through the South of France with all my favorite characters.

A Ziggy Stardust throw pillow I received from my best friends for my birthday, although my artist brother always gives me spectacular one of kind pieces as well.
