Cinema Nouveau
Fairlady|January/February 2022
From iconic cinematic outfits to wardrobe inspo courtesy of the small screen, we’ve revived some of our all-time favourite looks – with a modern twist.

GREASE IS THE WORD

We’ll give the matching pink satin jackets a miss, but Rizzo, Jan, Marty, and Frenchy were onto something with their statement sunnies. A pair of jaunty cat’s-eye frames adds instant attitude to any outfit.

Riiaana utility playsuit with palm print (R3900) Ted Baker. Gattopardo sunglasses (R4350) Dolce & Gabbana, Luxottica.

KILLING EVE

Channelling Villanelle’s killer style? She loves a tailored power suit, and this ochre-yellow one needs very little help making a statement. Keep the rest of the look pared down to make it pop.

Twill blazer (R5199) and tailored straight fitted pants (R3299) Scotch & Soda. Leighton cotton vest (R299) Poetry. Lilly leather slides in nude (R999) Country Road, Woolworths.

MAMMA MIA! HERE WE GO AGAIN
