Fashionable Films— A Series.
This month’s last entry of Fashionable Films ends with Inception— a mind boggling film about the layers of dreams and how realistic they can be. In the film, Leonardo DiCaprio plays Cobb, a thief who steals secrets through extracting information from high-level dreamers. Marion Cotillard plays Mal, Cobb’s tragically stunning wife who is locked in a layer of his dreams and haunts his every move.
Mal only appears in a few key scenes of this film, but her importance is eminent nonetheless. Her outfits mirror the character she plays in such a lucid way. Her first appearance is in a stunning beaded navy gown, like something from Chanel’s Spring 2012 Couture show.
I was so fixated on Mal’s whole look, I considered cutting off my beloved long locks! Instead, I opted for additions to my wardrobe that were very Mal— like a chiffon caftan instead of drawstring shorts to cover up at the beach, or this smart leather blazer instead of a ragged fleece.
Thank you to all of you who enjoyed this series! Fashionable films are one of the many sources that inspire me and my ever-evolving style. Have any other films to suggest? Feel free to email me at firstname.lastname@example.org for a future series of Fashionable Films.
