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.

Bafta Awards 2015: Best Dressed Women

1. Laura Haddock

Bafta Awards

This dress by Ashli Couture is just too pretty. Laura looked like a princess wearing it at the BAFTA Awards yesterday. I love the fact that she has just earrings on, letting the pretty dress do all the talking.

2. Rosamund Pike

Rosamund Pike looked effortlessly chic in this Roland Mouret black dress. She is definitely a style icon to watch out for. I love this look.

3. Reese Witherspoon

EE BAFTA British Academy Film Awards, Arrivals, Royal Opera House, London, Britain - 08 Feb 2015

Reese Witherspoon looked spectacular in this purple dress by Stella McCartney. The colour looks amazing on her, she is showing off a bit of cleavage but in a tasteful way. She nailed this look.

4. Julianne Moore

Baftas 2015

Julianne Moore is looking seriously sexy in this scarlet red piece by Tom Ford. This is my favourite look from the Bafta Awards 2015. Julianne is showing off cleavage as well (I think the cleavage showing is back) but also in a tasteful way, not too much.

5. Amy Adams

Amy Adams looked heavenly in this white Lanvin dress. The stylish belt takes the dress to a completely different level. So chic and sophisticated.

Which is your favourite look?
