Best Dressed film Characters

Clueless is one of my favourite films and never fails to put me in a good mood: it's my go to movie whenever I'm feeling a little sad. One of the best features of the film is obviously the costumes so I thought is do a post about my favourite iconic fashion film characters.


1. The Girl from The Seven Year Itch
Although I hate that Marilyn's character doesn't even have a name in this film, I really do love the clothes that she wears. She looks fab in her girlish pleats and polka dots but she still manages to look incredibly sexy. 



A simple pleated skirt and a girly crop top to show off some skin are without a doubt what I think Mariln Monroe would wear today. Match with heels and of course red lipstick.


2. Susan from Desparately seeking Susan
Although the plot of this film is quite wacky, Madonna character Sally, is one of my favourite film characters. She's sassy, confident and completely irresistible and this is all shown through her dress sense, especially her inability to hide her bra.
As long as your bra is on show through some sort of lacy, sheer top you're half way there to dressing like Susan. Just add some black trousers, biker boots and although I forgot to put it in the outfit, you definitely need a bow (Susan wears a lot of bows).

3 Sandy from Grease 
A character who shows her personal changes through her style is Sandy. From sweet, naive girl to sophisticated, sexy woman- Sandy made that change that all teenage girls wish to make.
To dress like Sandy you definitely need to stick to tight, black clothes with some gold accessories. I changed her red heels for doc marten boots and her leather jacket for a really cool faux fur coat.


4. Cher/Dionne from clueless
If I could be any film character it would have to be one of these two although Cher's virtual wardrobe desparately makes me want to have her life. Both girls are sassy and intelligent with the most incredible style. 

This outfit is probably more Cher than Dionne (she would definitely add a crazy hat) but I really want to wear it, and I'm nearly there! I ordered these shoes from Office yesterday and I'm so excited for them to come! I updated the tartan suit to a skirt and did Cher's classic layered look with a plain white shirt and navy crop top. And obviously I could miss out the staple 90s backpack. 



5. Holly Golightly from breakfast at tiffanys
Holly Golightly, played by Audrey Hepburn, is the epitome of glamourous style. Her wardrobe is minimalist and basic but absolutely iconic. In the film, she wore the same black four times but accessorised it differently every time that you don't even care because it's like a new dress each time. 
I love the simple black turtle neck and paired with a black satchel, striped skirt and of course some pearls you'll emulate Holly Golightly. Don't forgot a black hat, the bigger the better (size does matter!)



Which characters in film do you wish would lend you their wardrobe?
Lots of love,
