6 Reasons Lady Penelope Is Our Ultimate Style Icon

6 Reasons Lady Penelope Is Our Ultimate Style Icon

With the latest re-incarnation of Thunderbirds returning to our TVs this weekend, we take a look at why Lady Penelope is the most stylish puppet to the hit the small screen...

The best badass puppet in the biz, not to mention the most stylish, Thunderbirds' Lady Penelope Creighton-Ward (we didn't know that was her full name either) is back on our screens in 2015's update of the iconic 60's show. So what better excuse to take a look back at Lady Penelope's legendary wardrobe? Bang on trend for SS15, her swinging sixties look makes her our latest style icon. Thunderbirds are go!

1. She Knows How To Work A Hat

Nailing this season's obsession with the 70's, Lady Penelope was ahead of her time with her oversized tan straw hat. We reckon we've just discovered Jane Birkin's secret style inspo...

2. She's Not Afraid To Go OTT

Floor length fur coat? Check. Blue sequin dress with metallic silver panels? Check. Colour clash orange strappy sandals? Triple check. Yup, it's official, Miss Penelope isn't afraid of making a statement with her showstopping eveningwear and we love that.

3. She's A Badass Mod

Forget Diana Rigg, Lady Penelope is the hottest secret agent to hit our screens since…well, forever. Working a Mondrian-inspired colour block dress and a sleek bob casually accessorised with a pistol, Penelope looks like she could jump on a scooter straight to Brighton Rock, after saving the day of course.

4. She Works Off-Duty Style

Whether on screen or off, Penelope's style is always on point. Forget UGGs and a band tee, this Lady is all about working a chic pastel blue two-piece when she's on set. Paired with SS15's hottest sandal, the slider, she's totally working 2015's take on smart casual.

5. She's Got A Hot Ride

We don't know anyone who didn't swoon when Penelope cruised onto the screen in her Barbie pink Rolls Royce complete with chauffeur and futuristic glass top (well this is the 60's). A legend in itself, Penelope's ride is the hottest around.

6. She's Got A Great 'Do

Flawless skin, seriously enviable lashes and so weird it sort of works slightly blue eyebrows meant Lady Penelope was an instant hit with guys and girls everywhere. And that's before we checked out her epic hairdo. Perfectly coiffed with a blow-dry to die for, forget the Lob, it's all about Penelope's asymmetric bleach blonde bob. We've already added it to our hair inspo Pinterest board...
