Icon Of Class: Evil Queen / Regina Mills (ABC's Once Upon A Time)

Fairy tale is taking over the theme trend in the TV series landscape, thanks to ABC’s Once Upon A Time. 

Set in between the land of perpetual fantasy and modern-day reality, Once Upon A Time revolves around the story of true love, hatred, treachery and secrets — all unwrapped one step at a time.

And what is a hit TV series without the presence of a resident bitch? Well, let’s get to know Regina Mills, also known as the Evil Queen. Played by actress Lana Parrilla, Regina or the Queen, as what she is known back in the fairy tale land, is what Alexis Carrington used to be in Dynasty. She’s cold-blooded, heartless and manipulative.

Thanks to her curse, the entire fairy tale land suddenly disappeared and caused all the fairy tales characters to forget who they really are. 

Even better, the enchanted land is now known as Storybrooke, a fictional small town somewhere within the coast of Maine, with the Queen takes the helm of the town’s mayor under the guise of Regina Mills. 

Even though she may ostensibly forgotten about her past identity, those polished red apples — the poisonous apples that Snow White bit and swallowed prior to her ‘death’ — that she used as her living room centrepiece is enough for the viewers to identify her true self.

Albeit being hated for denying the characters from being happily ever after, her sense of style — a chic mixture of vampish ageless couture and sharp, contemporary pieces fit for a cosmopolitan woman — is certainly unparalleled and well-loved by fashionistas. 

Thus said ladies, why don’t you bring out the inner evil queen or Regina Mills in you with these fabulous finds of the season.
