Film Fashion: How to Steal a Million

January 2, 2014

While doing my hair for New Year's Eve (super cute disco-style curls - think Marc by Marc Jacobs Fall 2013 runway - that were immediately destroyed by a nasty fog that drenched the coastal area last night) I watched the absolute cutest Audrey Hepburn film, How to Steal a Million (1966).

The movie is light and fun, starring Audrey as a chic Parisian girl about town and daughter of a wealthy art forger. She crosses paths with a handsome burglar (who tries to steal one of her father's forged artworks) and romance and shenanigans ensue.

While not as whimsically whacky as Breakfast at Tiffany's or nostalgically romantic as Roman Holiday, it's a fun film and Hepburn's role as a French society girl is the perfect excuse for a lovely group of costumes by Audrey's favorite, Givenchy.

A perfect pink coat and glorious eye makeup, even when she's in her pajamas underneath

Getting ready for a night on the town

Dining with high society in dazzling diamonds (Holly Golightly would have loved it)

A bright yellow skirt suit, white fishnets, and a bouffant? So swingin' sixties

Nicole's idea of the perfect outfit for a clandestine meeting is stunning, though it may not be the best "undercover" outfit
