Faye Dunaway achieved style icon status as the gun-toting Bonnie Parker in the 1967 movie Bonnie and Clyde. Alongside Warren Beatty’s Clyde Barrow, she was a suave, sexy and seriously fashionable force to reckon with.
And even though the film takes place during the 1930s, Dunaway’s playful-yet-polished look continues to be coveted.

The makeup here is pretty simple. Use your regular foundation and set with a translucent powder.
I suggest getting into the Bonnie Parker spirit with Benefit’s Bad Gal.
Top it off with a matte, light-red stain for you lips.
Keep your nails nude, or apply two coats of Essie’s Like Linen.
If you have hair similar to Ms. Dunaway’s, use a flat iron (I live for the Chi) to get her smooth, straight style.
Make sure to start with a spray, such as this one by Marc Anthony. It not only protects your hair from heat damage, but also seals in shine and helps set the shape.
As for the outfit, a kick-ass beret is a must (1).
As is a printed scarf (2), tied neatly around your neck.
Finish it off with a fun pair of oxford pumps (5), and you’re ready to steal the spotlight.
