American Hustle

American Hustle film stillsThe nominations for this film are rolling in, and it is really one to watch at the Golden Globes tonight. An enthralling film based around the difficult relationship between con man Irving (Christian Bale) and his lover and partner-in-crime Sydney (Amy Adams), as they deal with intense FBI agent DiMaso (Bradley Cooper) and Irving’s unpredictable wife Rosalyn (Jennifer Lawrence). Combining a profound look at human nature and love, with slick tricks and twists, as well as great comedic moments, American Hustle is much more than the usual heist film. The acting is truly first-rate; I was particularly impressed with Adams’ switches between Sydney and her English alter-ego, as well as Lawrence’s erratic housewife.

American Hustle has some stunning wardrobe choices (as well as some shocking hairstyles – Cooper in rollers and Bale’s very particular comb-over are especially memorable). Amy Adams is hardly seen without a plunging neckline, and there are some spectacularly glamorous coats. To give your day look a 70s twist, add a floppy hat and gold chain to jeans and plain t-shirt. For the evening, American Hustle provides great inspiration for over-the-top glitz – pair a statement dress in sequins or a bold colour with a luxurious faux-fur jacket. Finish off with big bouncy hair, and some amazing 70s tunes
