You all know that I turned the big one-eight two weeks ago, and it is becoming apparent that each biological milestone brings with it a fashion milestone too. I read my first copy of Teen Vogue aged 12, British Vogue aged 16, American Vogue and i-D aged 17 and eighteen marks my first purchase of French Vogue. I do not know what took me so long. Well actually, I do. La langue française. As an aspiring magazine editor, I'm someone who sits and reads magazines word for word, cover to cover. I think I was waiting until my French was good enough that I actually understood what I was reading and wasn't just looking at the pictures. My French may not be anywhere near parfait, but it's good enough for me and I can understand about 75% of it which isn't half bad, even if I do say so myself.
I bought the May Vogue Paris issue which is basically completely centered around the gorgeous Penelope Cruz who guest edited the issue and who, after 'reading' it, is officially my new girl crush. In addition to the standard interview with her (Penelope sits in a café, sipping a lemonade and wearing a white T-shirt and jeans...you know the type darlings), it features her personal photographs, thoughts, friends, favourite music and books, and the inspiration for this post, her favourite, most inspirational actresses. The issue has a collage of her favourite starlets in their most iconic roles and got me thinking not just about my favourite actresses, but rather my favourite, most iconic movie fashion moments. So I thought it would be immense if I shared some of them with you:
Audrey Hepburn - Breakfast At Tiffanys
Kate Hudson - How To Lose A Guy In Ten Days
Sarah Jessica Parker - Sex And The City Movie
Audrey Hepburn - Funny Face
Zooey Deschanel - 500 Days of Summer
Anne Hathaway - The Devil Wears Prada
Audrey Tautou - Coco Avant Chanel
So darlings, what are your magic movie fashion moments? Have any of your super stylish icons influenced your own style?
The break also allowed me to spend time on the computer doing other things (read, drooling over fashion sites) and I stumbled across a fabulous site 'Buy It Right Here' that has all you could possibly want to know about Ugg Boots and comfortable fashion. In a weird twist of fate, a few days later, the sites owner contacted me wondering whether I would be interested in offering my fabulous readers (uk/usa/eu) a $30 discount code to which I said "hell yes". So darlings, if any of you are interested in purchasing Ugg Boots then visit the site, the code you need to get your 30% credit is: 511ROSE and you can use it any time between now and the next two weeks (until 18th May) so happy Ugging lovelies!
I have a very exciting week ahead which I hope to fill you in on soon, in the meantime hope you all have an inmmense week.
Its so good to be back.
Stay safe and chic mes chéries,
English Rose x
