A few days ago I finally got around to watching The Talented Mr. Ripley a wildly interesting movie with an amazing cast including Matt Damon, Jude Law, Gwyneth Paltrow, and Cate Blanchett. Set mainly in Italy with the hot sun and cool sea breeze, the costumes reflected the beachy 1950’s sentiment with a mix of high waisted bikinis and full skirts with tied oxfords. The ladies definitely got the better costumes, though we did get to see Jude Law in his speedo… The movie itself was very intriguing and intense at times, the softer costumes were a good balance to the mystery and secrets going on throughout.

Whatever tickles your fancy
We all know I love award shows and red carpets so it is only fitting that I dedicate this day to the Cannes Film Festival 2010.
Along with fashion and clothes and things of that nature I am also slightly obsessed with movies (and TV, and theater…).
I try to see as many foreign films as I can, and I usually get most of my newest movie obsessions from the Cannes Film Festival.
But I also get my fashion fix. Below are my favorite ensembles of the festival so far (it still has another week), hopefully I can be there myself one day.
Carey Mulligan: I love how classy and bright she is, in my opinion she leaves all of the other “starlets” in the dust with her great dress choices and elegant ensembles. (Plus I love her boyfriend, Shia LaBeouf)
Lea Seydoux: I think she is one of the best newcomers in the movie industry. I thought she was great in Inglourious Basterds and her fashion choices are very interesting, and of course very French, which is much needed.
