Movie Fashion Inspiration: To Catch A Thief

Welcome to the second installation of the Movie Fashion Inspiration series. Did you miss out on the first post? Check out one of my favorite movies of all time – Movie Fashion Inspiration: Charade.

While my personal style may be geared more towards Audrey Hepburn and Jackie O on a day-to-day basis – Think Capri pants, trench coats & oversized sunglasses – I was a huge fan of Grace Kelly growing up.

So much so, that for my 6th grade wax museum – Much to mother’s dismay – I chose to dress up as Grace Kelly from To Catch A Thief for my project. Layered chiffon floor-length vintage dress, elbow-length satin gloves, and a tiara.

I was an odd child.

This movie takes place in Monaco and the costuming is a sumptuous array of sweeping floor-length gowns, stylish suits, and luxurious jewels.

The only thing that could be more beautiful than the clothing and accessories in this movie is the gorgeous scenery. It’s just breathtaking.

In my opinion Cary Grant is the ultimate in menswear – Impeccably cut suits and timeless accessories like fedoras and ascots are the way to go as far as I’m concerned.

This is the epitome of the word ‘classic.’ Whenever I get dressed for a formal event Grace Kelly comes to mind – She’s my go-to inspiration when it comes to gala style.

Movie Fashion Inspiration: Charade

Welcome to a new MCLV series – In the Movie Fashion Inspiration series I’ll be sharing some of my favorite movies from a sartorial standpoint. From fabulous classics like Charade, Breakfast At Tiffany’s, and Rear Window to newer flicks like Atonement, Clueless, and The Devil Wears Prada.

I was raised on a strict diet of Hitchcock movies which meant that my childhood was spent falling in love with Audrey Hepburn, Natalie Woods, Cary Grant, Jimmy Stewart, Grace Kelly, and Gregory Peck.

One of my all-time favorite movies is Charade with Cary Grant and Audrey Hepburn, keep scrolling for some of my top fashion picks from the movie!

I love this marigold hued boatneck dress with the black bow belt. Classic, flattering for her boyish figure, and the perfect juxtaposition to his timeless suit.

One of the staples every woman should have in her wardrobe is a classic, tailored trench coat. Bonus points for going incognito with oversized sunnies and a headscarf.

I mean, really?

The neckline of this coat. The color. The hat. Head-to-toe fabulous, I would wear this look in a heartbeat for this year.
