"I’m witty, I’m bright, I’m loose, and I wear feathers."
Just caught a little showcase about Phyllis Diller--made me think she deserves to be highlighted as a style maven. When she was a kid she would design her own clothes and her mother would make them. As a comedian she orchestrated her image to get the most attention. She wore gloves because "clowns wear gloves," and always had the cigarette holder in her hand because it allowed her to have her hand up all the time, as though to say "Pay attention to me!" She also started her career in her late 30s, to help support her 5-children family. What a dame.
