Oscar’s Week: Wes Anderson Inspired Looks

In celebration of the Oscar’s, I thought I would do some styling based on the characters from Wes Anderson films. Wes Anderson is my FAVE – the sardonic humor, absolutely perfect styling and creative cinematography are undeniable.

First, we’ve got Margot Tenebaum from the Royal Tenenbaums. Cigarette-smoking, secret-keeping, perpetually-late, and, of course, brother-loving. I naturally had to have a tribute to her iconic fur coat and used our Wool You Go With Me Vest. Our Optical Illusion Swing Dress and Society Exotic Flats complete the look. All you need now it a blunt bob, orange barrette, and half a stick of eyeliner.

Next is Steve Zissou from The Life Aquatic. Ocean-exploring, shark-hunting, hat-wearing, oceanographer. I, sadly haven’t seen this one but everyone recognizes the crew of the Bellafonte. To get this look sans wet suit and skull cap, I paired our Wildfox: Mermaid X-Ray Top with 1 Teaspoon shorts and red Charlie Southern Retro State Arkansas Hat. Now go find you a jaguar shark.

Moonrise Kingdom was admittedly not my favorite but who doesn’t love troubled, eccentric kids on a romantic goose chase? The Suzy Bishop look, book-reading, raven-being, binoculars-wearing, is what we’re going for. I used the new Pretty + Perfect Knit Sweater and the On Top of the World Pocket Vest to recreate Suzy’s pink colored dress. Because she’s an adventurous gal, I added the Belt it out Felt Fedora and the Alliance Fringe Booties.

Last is Mr. Gustave H from the Grand Budapest Hotel. Police-evading, art-inheriting, concierge. This film has arguably the best color scheme, but being a hater of purple, Gustave’s iconic uniform maybe was a struggle. I paired our Stand Out Suede Fringe Vest with the Strong Heritage Ruffle Blouse and the Freebird Jeans in chalk gray. For the important pop of red, I had to have the Red Nugent Bootie.

Now you can dress as your favorite bizarre Wes Anderson character and pray your life is half as interesting!!!!
