Cartoon Bound #1 Marge Simpson – get the look
She’s as iconic as Marilyn and as formidable as Thatcher. We give you Marge Simpson.
The Springfield mom (not mum) is responsible for more than her family.

And why not, if they were good enough for Mondrian, they’re good enough for us. Why not give it a go.
Marge’s bouffant… or blue-fant, could be Pacific Heights from Ecos Paints.
Her delicate Springfield skintone, might it possibly be this sun-quenched shade of Sunflower?
The dress, the green dress… or as we know know – Warwick Green…
