The Talented Mr. Ripley

The Talented Mr. Ripley film stillsSpring has sprung(ish..), so while we all begin to dream about our summer holiday, what better way to indulge in a little getaway fantasy than with the beautiful scenery of Italy in The Talented Mr Ripley. Although it’s the gripping storyline and incredible acting that are the main points of this film, you can’t help but wish you could flit along the Italian coast – albeit without Tom Ripley’s wake of destruction. This psychological thriller follows Matt Damon as Tom, a young man who is mistakenly welcomed into the world of wealth and privilege, and who will do anything to remain there. The brilliant supporting cast of Jude Law, Gwyneth Paltrow, Cate Blanchett and Philip Seymour Hoffman are all caught up in Ripley’s web of deceit, as he juggles them, loves them, and tries to avoid their ever-growing suspicions.

Set in the late 1950s, Paltrow’s Marge and Blanchett’s Meredith are incredibly elegant, providing perfect inspiration for a chic, retro spring-summer look. Co-ordinating separates play on the lady-like feel, and Marge’s tie-up shirt with a full midi skirt is very on trend. Add nautical prints and accessories for a touch of the Italian Riviera glamour.

Dirty Dancing Stills

Dirty Dancing is what every other chick-flick wants to be – or at least should want to be. It has everything: the bad boy, the sweet girl, great quotes and a sing-a-long soundtrack (or dance-a-long, if you’re feeling brave!)… Set in the summer of 1963, the film follows Baby as she grows up, romance blossoms, and she learns to do that famous lift. I challenge you not to want to become a dancer after watching this – I may not know my right from my left, but I must learn how to mambo!

Although you may want to pick up some golden dancer’s heels after watching, I really like Baby’s Keds – practical, but cute. Featuring an array of pastels Baby’s wardrobe is perfect for Spring ’13, and the waisted shapes are figure-flattering. So, this season have ‘the time of your life’ and remember ‘nobody puts Baby in a corner’….
