Which came first, the movie or the mom: "Mona Lisa Smile" edition
This picture of Alexandra Wilder's mom was taken in the '60s in Croatia. Mona Lisa Smile came out in 2003.
So I guess I'll go with this mom as the inspiration for stylish school girls everywhere. Her daughter writes: "The attached is a photo of my mom in the 60s, in Croatia where she was born and raised. When she was growing up, she had a turbulent relationship with her mom, so she moved to Canada when she was just 20 years old to make a new start for herself."
