True Romance

24 January 2011

 Watched 'True Romance' last night on a whim. Mostly to escape the boredom of 'What Happens in Vegas'. But it was an unexpected addition to my list of films to watch in 2011. Love a bit of Tarantino, however minor. Always had it in the back of my mind to watch, what with all the Alabama fangirls taking style inspiration from her. Anyway, loved it! A few screencaps & promo pics to illustrate..

Christina Hendricks in Romona Keveza (er, I'll reiterate what every woman in the world is thinking; "why am I not Christina Hendricks/Joan Holloway?!")
Jayma Mays looked fierce in Alberta Ferretti. Tumbling auburn curls & a black floor-length dress = yes.
Yet another Glee reference, but Dianna Agron looked good in J.Mendel too
Controversial dress decision by Leighton Meester in Burberry. Marmite. I've seen overwhelming love for it on Twitter, and disgusted cries of "WORST DRESSED!" from the LA Times
Scarlett's back again - this time in Elie Saab with a lovely hair-up 'do
The emerald in Ange's Versace dress is perfect against her hair and complexion. Love. It.
Wasn't massively impressed with Best Actress Natalie Portman's Viktor + Rolf choice. But, then again, she said she chose it for the comfort factor. Pregnancy later made her change into ballet pumps for the after party! I'll let her away with that one..

Olivia Wilde in Marchesa was the first image I saw online before I went to bed last night. She was the first one on the red carpet, and clearly flaunted her early entrance with her massive crinoline-accentuated dress. Oh, and Christian Louboutin booties!
Everyone's loving January Jones' look last night. Can't remember the designer but she's clearly taken hair tips from her Betty Draper alter ego (agh, I am obsessed with Mad Men..)

OK, man-watch time...:
Mr Depp!
 Mr Gyllenhaal!
..and Mr Gosling!

 Hedi Slimane. This is how my hair looks 98% of the time.
W Magazine's Film Special looks so good - slick and modern. My favourite image is Colin Firth having a KISS moment.. maybe because I have a big crush on him. Mr Darcy once more..

 How good does Scarlett Johansson look in the new Moet & Chandon adverts? So much for divorce!? Amazingly, I guessed by just looking at them: TIM WALKER. Gave it a wee check and was right - he's the ultimate photographer to me (fan girl!). The ladder image just gives it away.

 Trini Gonzalez' blog is my new source of style inspiration - pretty much everything she wears (hair, makeup, the lot!?) is just as I'd wear it if I had her resources! But she also wears mostly High Street, which makes her a lot more accessible than other blogs like Sea of Shoes. Ah, makes you wanna go shopping..

 These are some Sartorialist images I've saved since 2011 began. The first image of the man's collar just captured me. It's so striking and feels like some kinda wartime aviator shot. Love!
