Even for the most skilled dressers, assembling a killer outfit sometimes requires a little more inspiration than the average online shopping experience provides. Enter Roxana Altamirano, the genius behind Nerd Boyfriend, the style blog that offers step-by-step instructions for recreating ensembles worn by icons ranging from Ingmar Bergman to Willie Nelson. Now she's guest blogging on Details.com every week. Have a hero you want to see featured? Just leave a note in the comments, and we'll see what we can do.
Nerd Boyfriend uses the terms in its title loosely but no one fits the bill more than Woody Allen. This 1980 photo of Allen not only features a masterfully composed outfit but the director's immense personality and charm. He remains a well-deserved international icon of intellectual style.
