How to Get the Fur and Velvet Modern Rock Queen Style of Lady Mary Charteris

The niece of Daphne Guinness, Lady Mary is a dead ringer for Anita Pallenberg, Pattie Boyd and the most stylish groupies of the '60s and '70s.

Ralph Lauren might not be the first designer you think of when seeking boho style, but sometimes rock aesthetics dovetail nicely with the brand's all-American feel. Take this suede jacket for example.

With their endless music festivals and opportunities to day-drink in crop-topped, flowy-skirted splendor, spring and summer might seem like the optimum time to channel the stylish groupies of yore.

But as a matter of fact, you can’t go wrong any time of year pulling inspiration from rock queens such as mod role model Pattie Boyd, hippie lady Anita Pallenberg, witchy Stevie Nicks or disco-loving Bianca Jagger. Winter might even be better if you’re looking for a way to pull the velvets and furs of the mid-20th-century into 2014. For inspiration, look no further than the British noblewoman Lady Mary Charteris.

Married to the frontman of Big Pink and daughter to aristocrats known to throw raves in their historic English countryside manor, Lady Mary is the heiress apparent to the varied rock queens who’ve come before her. Also, her Pamela Hogg-designed wedding dress is perhaps the most punk-rock garment of its kind. Click through our slideshow and learn how to get her style.
