I rented the film Beginners a few days ago and thought it was absolutely fantastic. Beautifully written, stellar performances (Ewan McGregor, Christopher Plummer) and incredibly touching. Of course, I also couldn't help but notice the clothes.  I was completely mesmerized by the incredibly cool style of actress Mélanie Laurent. It is certainly not the first time I have been in awe of a French actress's wardrobe, but there wasn't one frame in this film where she didn't look perfectly chic. Her hooded pea coat stood out the most for me, especially when worn with her torn up grey sweatshirt and sneaks. I am heading to a vintage shop this weekend to snag one as well as a vibrant kimono. I also loved the cream cotton button up with the black blazer and her killer hat worn unexpectedly with a hooded sweatshirt. Her style was wonderfully effortless and she charmingly repeated pieces throughout the film, an approach to film styling I always adore.
