Top 10 Fashionable Characters From Movies

The fashion conscious among us have often chosen to draw inspiration from Hollywood movies, and this is largely down to the stylish attire of many of these movie characters. Check out these 10 characters below:
1. Mookie
do-the-right-thing-spike-lee
Sometimes fashion is timeless, sometimes it captures a particular period – as is the case with Spike Lee’s character from his own 1989 filmDo the Right Thing. Mookie wears the clothes of the Brooklyn streets during the late 1980s, namely outsized basketball shirts, shorts and sneakers, and it was a look many young men wanted at the time, many still do today.
2. Patrick Bateman

This murderous yuppie from the movie – American Psycho (1999) is not a character to aspire to, but his wardrobe was something else. Sporting immaculately tailored dark pinstripe suit and shirt, he exuded the outward trappings of success.
3. Jules Winnfield
A well-tailored black suit and white shirt combo is a classic look, and few have looked cooler clad this way than Samuel L Jackson’s hitman from 1994’s Pulp Fiction. His overall look vaguely suggested the 1970s without conforming to any exact period, just like the film itself.
4. Cher Horowitz

This dizzy but sweet character from the 1995 comedy hit – Clueless was played by Alicia Silverstone, who became a fashion icon to young girls everywhere – with her knee socks, a- line miniskirts and many other stylish 90s outfits.

5. Elle Woods

Elle Woods, portrayed by Reese Witherspoon, achieved something similar in Legally Blonde (2001). Her character was the same mix of dizzy and clever, while her outfits ranged from pink to more pink. Not everyone can pull this look off but it suited the character perfectly.
6. Jacob
This character from 2011’s Crazy Stupid Love, played by Ryan Gosling, was a ‘player’ who devoted his life to picking up women, thus his envible wardrobe. Sporting tailored suits and dark cashmere sweaters he certainly succeeded in this aim.
7. James Bond

There has rarely been a time when 007 didn’t look perfect, but 2006’s Casino Royale, was a highpoint, despite the new, gritty feel of the movie. His casual outfits included shirts from Sunspel Riviera, plus those infamous blue La Perla trunks, he could have easily played these off playing mobile casino sites like Mobile Casino Australia, while his formal outfits included a classic tuxedo with Turnbull and Asser shirt.
8. The Motorcycle Boy
This enigmatic character from 1980s movie – Rumble Fish avoided the cliché biker look of jeans and black leather jacket in favour of suit jacket and trousers, shirt and no tie. This marked the character out as an individual, while still looking cool.
9. Carrie Bradshaw

The heroine of Sex and the City was permanently clad in high fashion, from Manolo Blahnik shoes to Prada dresses, which again made her a character that fashion lovers aspired to be like.
10. Zoolander
Zoolander
Perhaps the single greatest fashion icon of all time is this male model portrayed by Ben Stiller in 2001’s Zoolander. Few could carry of his outfits – which included a leopard skin suit and bag – but we would all like to be able to.
With Zoolander 2 now out in cinemas, it is clearly time for us all to raise our fashion game and meet his challenge.

The Style Icon – Carrie Bradshaw

The style icon for this week is the famous Carrie Bradshaw from the Sex and the City series. I must confess, I was always so excited to watch any episode of Sex and the City just to see what Carrie Bradshaw had on, she was a style legend. Her savvy style was simply out of this world. She rocks.

Carrie Bradshaw wore pieces and accessories that I won’t even dream of wearing but she looked amazing in them. She had the carriage to pull it off and that matters a lot.
