"I love the 70s," Nikki Milan Houston says. A fan of blaxploitation films and Jane Birkin, 18-year-old Houston recently moved from a small beach town in California to study directing and screenwriting at Columbia College. "Between the perfect bell-bottoms, loafers, fur coats, and minidresses, [Birkin] has the exact effortless look that I've always admired," she says. "Also, I have to throw in the Austin Powers costume designers as a huge inspiration." See one of Nikki's films right after the jump.
