Hollywood infected your brain

Following the positive reaction to The Sun Always Shines Always On TV and my viewing of the excellent The King's Speech yesterday, I did another poll to find out what films influence people's style. Audrey Hepburn in Breakfast at Tiffany's was a firm favourite, as always, but both Marie Antoinette and The Virgin Suicides came up so perhaps Sofia Coppola films in general are quite inspiring. I must admit I've never seen one of her films, but I am hoping to see Somewhere soon.

As for my fashion inspiration films, I discovered while making this that Anne Hathaway is my screen costume idol. She actually pops up three times in the above collage- can you spot all of them? Anyway, aside from her, my biggest influence of late has been An Education and a rather late-to-the-game viewing of Ferris Bueller's Day Off (you might be able to spot Sloane somewhere near Natalie Portman and Rachel Mcadams). I just love Sloane's relaxed summer style and Ferris' cool-guy leopard print concealed under that jock-ish jacket.

Other films I couldn't get pictures of are 500 Days of Summer (love her vintage dresses), Stardust (favourite film EVER) and High School Musical 3 (hear me out, have you SEEN Vanessa Hudgens' wardrobe in that film? Summer perfection).

What films inspire your style?

Just found your blog and really enjoyed reading your posts. Oh movie style inspirations, that is such a hard question. But you picked out some really good ones. I agree Anne Hathway and yes "The Devil Wears Prada" and of course "Clueless" huge when I was growing up. There are just so many!!
