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

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.
What do you think of these stylish characters? Which is your favourite?

Nicole Kidman Covers Harper’s Bazaar March 2016

The lovely Nicole Kidman is on the cover of Harper’s Bazaar for March 2016. The beauty wears Alexander McQueen jacket and dress with La Perla slip and Harry Winston jewellery, photographed by Norman Jean Roy and styled by Miranda Almond.

Nicole Kidman is one woman who always looks good on magazine covers. I am yet to see a magazine cover of her not look good. This cover is right up my street. I am loving her pose and outfit, with a pop of red and white as the cover theme. That Alexander McQueen jacket is giving me life right now.

Nicole Kidman wears Marchesa gown, Van Cleef & Arpels earrings, Tiffany & Co bracelet and Bionda Castana heels on the subscribers’ edition cover.

I prefer the main cover, it is sure to catch the eyes of many on the newsstands, unlike the subscribers cover. I guess the powers that be at Harper’s Bazaar don’t have to worry too much about the subscribers cover. The subscribers are reading the magazines mainly for the content, unlike the rest of us that grab a copy mainly for the cover, lol…

I remember back in the day, when my dream was to work as a staff of one of these magazines. I had my eye on all the major ones – British Vogue, Elle, Marie Claire, Glamour, Cosmo and Harper’s Bazaar. I stalked followed the editors on Twitter, applied for various roles, and kept dreaming of the day my dreams would come true. Today, that feels like a long time ago. I have zero interest in working with any of them on a full-time basis, but will happily freelance, hahaha. My dreams have come true but in a very different way.

Anyways, back to Nicole’s cover, I love it but not enough to buy it because I have zero interest in her life or career, and the other features on the cover do not entice me enough to buy it.

Did you ever dream of writing for any of the big magazines or do you? Drop me a comment, let’s chat.

Thanks for reading.
