just a note

[heathers+fashion.jpg]

to those of us living in the UK, Heathers is free with the Observer today.

I still haven't seen it, but we can rely on Jeanie's recommendation of this cult teen movie with a twist and the fabulous costumes; plaid skirtsuit galore!

and to those of you not in the UK, while we're on the subject of films inspiring style, what are your personal favourites?

annie hall, an obvious choice but a favorite nonetheless. i also love virgin suicides and dazed and confused for their 70s glory as well.

Susan said...

This is a very good film. Funny in a disturbing way. I love old films like Showboat and Easter Parade.

Ania said...

funny you should mention style inspiring movies, I've just decided to catch up on those I haven't seen yet.
just did a post on breakfast at tiffany's, yesterday I watched clueless and if it wasn't for a pile of coursework, I'd be watching annie hall and talented mr ripley right now ;)

OH MAN! I really want to see the end of this film, but I'm in pjs, with wet hair and no makeup - so I can't really go and buy it.
You'll have to tell me what happens.

jayne said...

haha this film is one of my favorite black comedies, you'll love it

the oddest film I've ever been sartorially inspired by was Francois Traffaut's classic "Day for Night" there was a character with amazing highwaist denim, funky glasses, and peasant tops!

I love Heathers :) Got the Observer for it today!
In terms of costume I would say... Period dramas in general and Virgin Suicides!

oooh heathers is such fun. such a hilariously silly movie! they say such funny things like 'did you have brain tumour for breakfast?' to represent shock hahaha..

*Le Divorce with Kate Hudson-great parisian style
*Breakfast at Tiffanys
*Lost in Translation
And any 1960s films with Anne Margret like the Pleasure Seekers, and Bye Bye Birdie

Miss Woo said...

Yes I got that yesterday, can't wait to watch it. and personally I'll always, always love Christiane F and Marie Antoinette for style inspirations.
