Inspired by Angelina Jolie (as Mrs. Smith)
"I always had too much energy for the room I was in."
The Dress (Krista K Boutique)
Mrs. Smith is all about a dark and mysterious aesthetic; think black lace and patent leather. This dress from Krista K boutique (a Chicago must-see) is the perfect place to start.
As far as makeup goes I was inspired by Toast of New York by Revlon, which my sister used to be obsessed with. This shade perfectly represents the mystery and allure of any spy. However, the overall makeup look of Mrs. Smith is 'understated glam' and you can see a tutorial here.
