This season, the Branquinho girl is projecting her reserved good taste from behind a curtain of long, pretty, blow-dried hair. She has a knackmaddening to her more showy competitorsfor choosing understated pieces that are just right. She'll pick out a light tweed jacket and put it with a soft, romantic skirt and boots, or look fantastic just by wearing a slinky, striped knit and slender pantsand winding a long silk scarf round her neck. She's also one of the first to realize that a long skirt is a great way to go at this particular moment. Day or night, Branquinho has many ideas along those linesfrom wrap jersey dresses to full-length halter gownsguaranteed to turn heads without ever shrieking for attention.
