My Mom, The Style Icon: María Olga Fernández

María Olga Fernández is a 
one-woman style revolution!

Chileans were living under a dictatorship when this picture was taken, and people were 
so conservative—constantly afraid. My mother, however, marched to the beat of her own drum: 
I have memories of her in great big glasses, feather boas, colorful heels and long gypsy skirts—it was the original boho chic! She loved being a woman and embracing her femininity—I never saw her leave the house without makeup—and even today, that beauty and effortless elegance comes across in her style. —Cote de Pablo, actress
