Fashion {& Grace} Icon: Emily Deschanel a la Dr. Temperance ‘Bones’ Brennan

Presenting Temperance Brennan as …

In addition to her daily looks, Emily/Temperance dresses herself up in character every once and an episode … and I have to say those are some of my favorite looks. Most people, when in costume, tend to be a little timid and a little self-conscious … but when Temperance Brennan dresses up – this dame just owns it. She seems to have so much fun just playing the part and becoming the character with no glimmer of shame. I think that is hot, and fabulous, and the absolute epitome of strength. Here are three of my most favorite …
