Well Winx I am relieved to see that someone else remembered Alex penchant for that kind of hairdo. Alex had it a lot, it actually helps to give the impression of volume and height although the hair is otherwise pulled back or up neatly. It also looks more casual and relaxed.
Unfortunately for Marie, the twists are too loose or too big, in some pix she looks like a 50s housewife with her hair still in curlers...
As to the cardie-white blouse-dark slacks combo, too me it is quite a simple and non sophisticated office girl outfit. However to a girl who would wear hot pants and a toy dog to work, this might be ultra chic and conservative.
Not bad but not even anything. (actually I expect her employees to look quite like that without even trying)
Inherited Alex hairdresser? Now why do I now have that very weird picture of Jokke outfitted with curlers pins and brushes and murmuring: "Oh, hold still darrrlink, that'll look marvelous..."
