Ah, I love documenting movies for their wardrobe.
Who cares if the photos aren't as sharp and it takes forever?
Charlotte Gainsbourg in 'I Do' (or 'Prête-moi Ta Main') is a study in French-Girl-Crush-Perfection.
A worn in, strategically cut-up American shirt.
What could improve this look?
Oh I don't know,
how about a leather belt
clearly made in Texas?
So American yet so not at the same time.
But wait - there's more:
burgundy over-the-knee socks!
Skinny, little Charlotte, you are killing me!
Her delicate rolled up blouse is so effortless.
And her scruffy side swept hair is a dream.
She makes me want to wear jeans.
It looks simple enough.
Cap-sleeved t-shirt, wide belt and jeans.
Then she turns around and all of a sudden:
A chain-linked detail on the sleeve!
Best plot twist ever.
But this is the look that keeps on giving.
The night ends and she throws
on a comfy but not slobby sweater.
Jeans, black suede boots and a slouchy bag.
And a perfectly well-constructed coat.
So lovely. You know it fits likes a glove and was probably hand-sewn by soft hands
This white dress drove me crazy.
So subtle yet like everything else French,
But not too sexy.
I know military coats have been done but I want this.
I love when movie characters recycle their wardrobe throughout the course of a film.
It makes everything a bit more believable.
Except, I will never believe this one. . .
. . . would date this guy:
But let's get back to this coat.
Even the detail of the sleeve made me swoon.
