Hallow-Weekly Feature: Let It FlowPosted: October 7, 2011 | |
In the spirit of dressing up for Halloween, I’ve decided to come up with a weekly feature highlighting awesome outfits worn by female movie characters this month. Every Friday, this October, I’ll showcase one outfit that would be perfect for recreating for a Halloween party (or really anytime at all, but I just like to use Halloween as yet another excuse to dress up).
Unfortunately, this isn’t a list of the most iconic costumes in film, but it will include some well-known outfits.
Today’s outfit: Cecilia’s green dress from Atonement (as worn by Keira Knightley).
This dress is elegant, flowy, and the most memorable emerald dress in film history aside from Scarlett O’Hara’s curtain dress in Gone with the Wind. The dress is loose in the upper portion of the bodice, but hugs the hips in a figure-flattering way. I also think the bracelet and gold shoes are a romantic, yet understated way to accessorize.
So, if you’re looking for a glamorous and dramatic way to end the night, this dress is for you (and make sure your date wears a tux to polish off the look)!
