FASHION ICON: THE HITCHCOCK HEROINE

FASHION ICON: THE HITCHCOCK HEROINE

This season, we’re going psycho for Hitchcock-inspired fashion! Think Tippi Hedren and Grace Kelly, think old school glamour ‘n’ a flick of winged eyeliner and you’re already 39 steps towards becoming style’s leading lady.

Perhaps one of Hollywood’s most iconic (and often controversial!) directors, it’s no surprise that Hitch’s much talked about femmes are still making their mark on the trends du jour. It was good old Alf’s determined obsession to portray his own image of feminine beauty that had each of his gals leaving everyone spellbound. Cinched-in waistlines, coiffed ‘dos and killer shoes rolled, the credits followed and so did the world of fashion.

Referenced all over the catwalks, a standout collection emerged from Alexander McQueen back in 2005 that was packed with skirt suits, tailored tweed and soft knit sweaters – stylishly finished with little leather gloves and blowout hair, of course! More recently, this year’s autumn/winter model strut sessions saw sartorial tributes aplenty with subtle nods from Badgley Mischka and a more obvious homage from The Blonds in NYC (how cool is the Janet Leigh Psycho dress below?!).

The good news is you don’t have to be overtly literal OR get chased by birds to look Hitchcock hot! Just bag yourselves these key essentials that’ll take you right through the seasons…

Shop the essentials: Coat – Glamorous Faux Fur Oversized Coat, Dress – Fearne Cotton Midi Lace Dress, Tote – Modalu Sedgewick Bag, Shoes – Ted Baker Satin Jewelled Court, Lingerie – Intimates Strapless Control Slip.

DIAL ‘M’ FOR MAKE-UP

The saying “gentlemen prefer blondes” definitely rang true when it came to Hitch, but whatever your hair hue you can reference the trend with retro ponies, sculpted silhouettes and a good bit of backcombing! Replicate that on-screen sexuality and get the siren look in three with iconic eyes, matte skin and blood-red lips. You don’t have to go all-out vintage either, thick Cara D shaped brows will add a current, contemporary twist.

Feeling inspired? Swat up with Alfred Hitchcock’s Essential Collection on DVD (it’ll make a great stocking thriller, too!)

Hey I know this is off topic but I was wondering if you knew of
any widgets I could add to my blog that automatically tweet my newest twitter updates.
I’ve been looking for a plug-in like this for quite some time and was hoping maybe you would have some experience with something like
this. Please let me know if you run into anything.
I truly enjoy reading your blog and I look forward to your new updates.
