style magic: bobbie gentry

Hi lovelies!

Time for another Style Magic feature, this one featuring one of my most favorite country ladies, Bobbie Gentry. Not only is this enchanting beauty a ridiculously gifted songwriter/singer, but she has a style all her own. I love how she can rock a va-va-voom showgirl-style frock (complete with a waist-high slit) in one pic and then be perched barefoot in a tree, looking ever-so-comfy in jeans and a pull-over in the next. And that hair! The ever-present voluminous mass of long, long, long brunette locks—I just love it. (I even gush about it on Beauty Bets tomorrow! Go see!)

Of course, I couldn’t have a whole feature about Bobbie without sharing a few of my favorite clips of her singing.

I hope you enjoyed this little round-up of pretty pictures. To learn more about Miss Gentry, get your mitts on the winter issue of Venus Zine, which features a *fascinating* article about her by Tara Murtha.
