Watch This Style: The Most Stylish Films of Awards Season & 2017!


There’s so much holiday talk in the air, but it’s also another season! All the best & most highly-anticipated films are about to hit theaters for awards season, which means that some of today’s most in-demand actresses are making jaw-dropping red carpet appearances, speaking at press events, & doing the talk show rounds, inspiring viewers with their class, intelligence, talent, & style. Aside from the excitement of seeing who is wearing what, the fashion in these films is definitely worth talking about. I was recently talking to some writer friends about how I haven’t been very enthusiastic about movies lately, especially since there’s so much amazing television on these days, but my mind is changed. I’m gushing over the visual candy that is La La Land, the retro elegance in Rules Don’t Apply & Jackie, as well as the high fashion stakes set in Miss Sloane & Nocturnal Animals (Directed by acclaimed designer Tom Ford).

The variety of inspiration comes from period pieces, high fashion cinema, & futuristic sci-fi vibes, which means that anything is possible when it comes to not only escaping into the big screen, but also into your wardrobe’s potential. After tallying up the riveting trailers I’ve been seeing on television lately & replaying some favorites on YouTube, here are just 11 of the best, starring the stylish likes of Marion Cotillard, Emma Watson, Hailee Steinfeld, Scarlett JohanssonTaraji P. HensonOctavia SpencerJanelle Monae, Natalie Portman, Jessica Biel, Haley Bennett, Emma Stone, Michelle Williams, Jessica Chastain, Amy Adams, Jennifer Lawrence, Annette Bening, Elle Fanning, & Lily Collins.

Silver Screen Style: Sarah Jessica Parker & Friends in ‘I Don’t Know How She Does It’!


In Sarah Jessica Parker‘s new movie, I Don’t Know How She Does It, she plays a working mom who loves her job & family with a passion.  I recently wrote on Movie Buzzers about the movie that opened this past weekend, based on the best-selling novel by Allison Pearson.

I’m so happy to SJP back on the big screen, especially during all the press & promotional events for this film b/c we get to see our favorite Sex & the City star out & about & very stylish!  I’ve included a bunch of stills from the new movie, which also stars Pierce Brosnan, Greg Kinnear, Christina Hendricks, Olivia Munn, Kelsey Grammar, & Busy Philipps.

What I love about some of these images is that the characters are wearing outfits that aren’t high-fashion, but very wearable for a career gal.  Some of my favorite stores to shop for workwear include New York & Company, LOFT, Ann Taylor, The Limited, Gap, & Target. I like to find pieces that are both neutral, but still flattering to my shape.  I don’t want to look too stuffy or that I’m hiding my style.  For Style Darlings on a budget, you’d be swapping out pencil skirts, blouses, trousers, & pumps on a day-to-day basis to keep your look fresh & here’s where accessories (in moderation, of course) can really work to your outfit’s advantage!

Here we see SJP wearing lots of gray, beige, & black. Her character, Kate, is often traveling across the country & she needs to wear pieces that are both easy to pack & catch for her meetings & work events.

Look at pretty Christina Hendricks is even in modern-day attire like a tweed  coat, dark red leather gloves, soft curls, & a fashionable handbag!

Check out the movie’s trailer too!

Check out our last post on Silver Screen Style featuring images from Michelle Williams’ upcoming role as Marilyn Monroe in My Week with Marilyn.  What are your favorite styles from movies? Where do you like to shop for office attire?  What are your favorite go-to pieces that you can wear as a mom-on-the-go?  Happy Styling!
