Sherlock Holmes

Sherlock Holmes film stillsWe all love a bit of Sherlock. Even 100 years after his creation by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, new incarnations are still popping up (am almost bursting with excitement for the new season of BBC’s Sherlock), and this slick Hollywood reworking Guy Ritchie is a very enjoyable adaptation. Chasing down the ominous Lord Blackwood, Robert Downey Jr. adds a more ‘action man’ side to Holmes, as well as keeping the eccentric genius that continues to draw us back to the character. Jude Law and Rachel McAdams provide great support as Dr. Watson, and Sherlock’s love interest, Irene Adler. Although set in Victorian London, this film is full of big bangs, high-octane chases, and blood-pumping fights, and the mystery of Blackwood’s dark magic will keep you guessing. It may not be the best retelling, but it is very good fun.

For the fashion, dip into the drama of Victorian frocks and pattern with touches of lace and ruffles. Invest in an elegant black coat and a pair of leather brogue ankle boots for a timeless winter look. Picking up on Irene Adler’s flashes of bold colour, flowers, and the drama of the black magic in the accessories, will give captivating finishing touches that you won’t need to be a detective to notice…
