Much as New York women love their heels, they also face a hard truth: They will walk thousands of steps before the day is done. Racing up and down subway stairs, sprinting 17 blocks rather than wait for a crosstown bus, and standing on lines endlessly are all agonizing in 5-inch heels. New York women carry bags that hold a lot, including a change to heels for nighttime. They don’t fancy the bright colors our sisters in tropical climes do. Real New York women look exactly like Dr. Joan Watson (Lucy Liu) on CBS’ “Elementary,” Thursdays.“I describe it as very New York, fashionably functional,” costume fashion designer Rebecca Hofherr says of the look, “which is why I try to mimic all of the fabulous ladies in New York. I don’t look at magazines; I look at actual people in the city to get ideas for Joan Watson.”

“There is a certain way you have to dress as well as be stylish and fashionable,” Hofherr tells Zap2it, “and I think about that with Joan because she is all over the city all day long. She has to be functional too. I don’t think that style is particularly what is in magazines or what’s on the runway. When I think about being stylish, as an individual person, having something that is your own, you could put a black T-shirt on five different people and get a completely different outcome.”
