Musette's Movie Magic


Sophia Copolla's beautifully rendered film adaptation of Jeffrey Eugenide's novel The Virgin Suicides was nothing short of an aesthetic dreamland. Although desperate and disturbed, the Lisbon sisters are visions in pastel dresses, preppy school uniforms, and starched nightgowns. Set to a hypnotising soundtrack by Air, these five blond bombshells are ethereal, innocent and effortless.

Become a stone fox in flowing favourites and sweet summertime must-haves!

Saturday detention never looked so good. The Breakfast Club revolutionised teen flicks of the 80's with it's snappy dialogue, hit soundtrack,and killer wardrobe. Our group of confused adolescents learn they have more in common than they once thought in perfectly stereo-typical ensembles. This Brat Pack brings to detention hall a selection of individual looks that helped to make 80's style so memorable.

You too can embody the Brain, the Athlete, the Basket Case, the Princess and the Criminal all at the same time. Hows that for revelatory?

When referencing classic movie style an ode to Audrey is compulsory. Together Hubert de Givenchy and stylist extraordinaire Edith Head transformed this icon from 'dowdy' daughter of a limo driver, to the educated, tres chic stunner fresh from Paris. Head was up to the task with 35 Oscar nominations for costume design under her belt, while a 26 year old Givenchy was fashion's brightest new star. This emerging designer unforgettably upgraded Sabrina's look from wool pinafores to sculpted gowns, pencil skirts, and fitted little hats. Although Aud looked breathtaking in all of her roles, it is in Sabrina that Musette remembers her most fondly.

No other film summed up Generation X quite the way Reality Bites did. Viewers followed a group of angst ridden, newly graduated coeds on their search for love, independence, and the general meaning of life. Winona Ryder was the epitome of the flawless 90's gamine, falling (along with many of us,) for the witty and consistently greasy Ethan Hawke. To the music of a perfectly 90's soundtrack featuring the likes of Lisa Loeb and Crowded House, our stars pondered life oh so coolly in worn in classics, retro gems, and minimal makeup. Highlights of this epic include Ethan Hawke commenting on Ryder's 'doily' dress, and Janeane Garofola's ultimate sell out by becoming the manager of the Gap.

Revisit Gen X in an existential fashion!

Every teen cursed the fates for not living in the 70's when Dazed and Confused hit cinemas in 1993. Set on the day of high school graduation, 1976, this hot cast confronts brutal initiations, first love, broken curfews, and keg parties in super tight jeans, peasant tops and all Amercian sportswear. Girls with perfectly blow waved 'dos and guys in bell bottoms and low cut t-shirts are sure to make any audience member wish they were partying with this groovy group of revelers.

Recreate the 70's as masterfully as Dazed and Confused did in looks that will leave you yearning for early Aerosmith and staying up 'till sunrise!
