Watch them for the clothes

Three of my favorite movies ( whenever I come across one of them I watch, regardless of whether it is the beginning, middle or end) have strong appeal to me because of the style of the leading ladies.
I realize that costume designers have tremendous influence on the look of a film, but when I watch these movies I feel like I am getting a strong idea of the personal style of each of these actresses.
Diane Keaton is probably the best example of a film icon who is so strongly associated with her quirky persona, and Gwyneth Paltrow is a fine actress who cannot escape her New York classic cool style. And Rene Russo may not be as known for her own look, but she epitomizes the sharp, seductive image in Micheal Kors throughout that movie.

  1. I agree with your assessment of Diane keaton' look. I love her 80's power look in 'Baby Boom" especially the white belted coat. I still like the short skirt suits with flats that Debra Winger wears in "Forget Paris"
