Chic Halloween this year?
Is it just a pretty clothes picked by wardrobe stylists or sewn by costume tailors, what attracts us to certain movie characters? Or it’s also personality of character reason why we sometimes feel a special connection with our screen idols. Since we often worship movie girls as style inspiration and inspiration stands more like influence less like cloning, it would be ridiculous to dress up head to toe like them on regular days. That's why is invented the Halloween! If you ever wanted to be an actress, but you are not on personal with spiders, ghost, witches and vampires, Halloween is just perfect day for you to get ready for the role. And five girls below I chose as Halloween costumes inspiration, are all from our era, and all special and quirky in they own way. Say hello to Margot, Amelie, Mirabelle, Bridget and Nikki!
Margot Tenenbaum, the royal gypsy princess of the Tenenbaum family is far away from the gypsy; her tennis striped dresses are vintage Lacoste, fur coat is made by Fendi and her brown purse is Hermes Kelly bag.
To be Margot list:
Striped tennis dress on fur coat, brown loafers, brown handbag and straight bob with plastic barrette. Black eyeliner. Be wistful and smoke all the time. And you will have to invent somehow the wooden finger.
Amelie Poulain, charming waitress devoted to helping people who surround her is very childish. As her style; small cardigans in bright colors, knee-length skirts and dresses, outerwear in earth tones, and little socks.
To be Amelie list:
Green cardigan on polka dot dress, black school shoes with small socks. Wig with the short bob and bangs. Smile with curious facial expression.
Mirabelle Buttersfield is selling gloves at the department store but in the free time she is an artist. Her style is very clean and ladylike, including lot of dresses, blouses and camel coat.
To be Mirabelle List:
Turtleneck gray shirt, pencil skirt and pumps. Tag with the name. Golden chain and the brooch. Red hair. Bit clumsy behavior. Act like you always think of something else.
The one and the only, Bridget Jones is a girl without the secrets but with very clever sense for humor.
To be Bridget list
Oversized floral pajama pants with pink twin set cardigan, or bunny girl costume on the coat. Don’t forget the diary, booze and the smokes. And the good sense for humor.
Nikki, Alfie's girlfriend is a party girl with very free spirit. She is very trendy, wears lot of golden jewelry, hats and the fur coat.
To be Nikki list:
Very long blond hair with the bangs. Hoop earrings. Smokey Eyes. Fur coat and the over knee black boots. Swinging sixties mood.
