I mentioned last week that I have a new favourite TV series (which, by the way, doesn’t feel at all like television): House of Cards. I think Robin Wright makes the greatest role of her career in it. And I also have to say, and my husband will admit to it, that I’ve become a little obsessed with her: with the graceful way she has aged, with her short hair cut that’s making me seriously consider a new hair style, and with her wardrobe: if I needed another reminder that there is nothing more elegant, sophisticated and ageless than simplicity, the most minimalistic, sharp, clean, essential form of style, then Robin’s outfits do just that.
