If you like your fashion inspired films light and sparkling like a great champagne then here is a perfect example. The costumes were designed by Edith Head and showcase Natalie Wood to perfection. Looking fresh and modern without being trendy, they perfectly capture the quality that makes clothing from the mid sixties memorable as well as desirable. A perfect slice of life fashion show capturing style in the city circa 1966 without any need for sex.

FRANCO MOSCHINO - Mixing Vintage & Modern Style

This is a great look when you want to feel empowered as well as hyper feminine. We love the buttoned up yet sensual quality found in the mix of textures. That contrast of soft supple silk against the structure of a fitted shape revealing skirt will always get your attention. For the best in leg revealing skirts you can never go wrong with a Franco Moschino skirt c. 1980s. Buttoned down or open for more pizazz you will always have a great shape, sure to be the best in show. Mix some feminine accessories with a reptile clutch, a touch of matte on your lips and an architectural shoe and you will look in control. Just remember to use your ruler sparingly, some times a bad boy is a good subject for education.
