Fashion and the Cinema

It is funny that if I look back at my favorite movies a lot of them have some great fashion (I wonder if that is why I like them...).  White Christmas as some seriously incredible fashion in it especially Vera Ellen.  The dresses she wears are so elegant and polished I would wear any of them even now.  One of my favorite dresses is the red, black and white number above.  I will always keep my eye out for anything resembling this skirt and I definitely need a wide red belt. 
This is my "interpretation" of it.  Actually it is just an outfit that I put together that the colors and the circle skirt reminded me of the above outfit,and I love to wear it. I couldn't find my sunglasses, hence you get the squinty eyed look.

Favorite movies for fashion-Emma (with Gwyneth Paltrow), How to Lose a Guy in 10 Days, The Wedding Planner, White Christmas, Charade, Breakfast at Tiffany's (actually ANYTHING Audrey Hepburn is in.  She and Givenchy were the perfect team!!), The Devil Wears Prada and Clueless.  What are some of your favorite movies for the fashion??
Top: Ann Taylor (similar and this one is cute) | Skirt: Dillards (similar)| Belt: unknown (similar and in red)| Shoes: Aldo (similar and similar)| Bag: Nine West via Ross | Jewelry: F21 (recent) and Jcrew

  14. This is so fun and creative...I love your look! I definitely share your love for the outfits in Clueless (I still want a computer program that helps me put together outfits) and The Devil Wears Prada...but Confessions of a Shopaholic was a great inspiration too. I also loved Kirsten Dunst's looks in Elizabethtown.
