Les Misérables

I’m not sure I’ve gone a day this month without hearing someone singing at least one of the songs from this (or belting them out myself), and with the film coming from the record-breaking musical, I’d expect nothing less. There’s been a lot of question over whether it lives up to the stage version, especially whether the actors can keep up with the songs – I say yes. Anne Hathaway and Hugh Jackman could not give fuller performances, and even if Russell Crowe has a…different… style, the rest of the cast could be taken as real musical performers. The only fault I would have is the length – so make sure you don’t eat your popcorn in the first 20 minutes! Also, please wear waterproof mascara unless you want to journey home as a panda.

Now, fashion may not be your first thought on seeing this film – the rags of the French peasants don’t scream ‘must-have’ – but the colours, military elements, and use of volume are easily incorporated for a statement January look.

Zoom in on:
– Red, white, and deep blue
– Military detailing
– Tailored waists
– Full skirts
– Layering
