I love movies and get a lot of fashion inspiration from them. The characters gives the clothes a life and a history, which affects me a lot, and can change my opinion about a style or makes me want to experiment with my wardrobe. The movies gives me sometimes more inspiration and love to fashion, instead of what a fashion show or a fashion magazine can give me. I’m more intrested in peoples personal styles and the way people communicates with clothes and the way they fit in different styles, which is the the aim of costume design. Fashion trends are also very interesting in the way people style them, with their own personal taste, that becomes their own way of communication.
The movies I’m showing here in pictures are: Penny Lane in Almost Famous, with her 70s groupie hippie style that still fits our nowaday fashion with the bohemian style in the spring. Then it is the very sad and emotional movie Candy with the beautiful Abbie Cornish and her artsy black lace wedding dress at Mc Donalds. The movie Alfie with Sienna Miller is such a huge inspiration and will always be, with her 70s style, Birgette Bardot hairdo and black eye make up. The Virgin Suicides with their pretty white summer dresses and flowers in their hair with a great mystery. Midnight in Paris is perfect for us who loves the 30s dresses á la Chanel and the last movie is Last Night with the elegant and sophisticated outfits. Just a few of my favorite-fashion-inspration-movies.
