Fashion In Flim: Cruel Intentions

cruel

I thought as another monthly post I would look at films that have either influenced fashion or have had an influence on me. This month it is the turn of 90's favourite Cruel Intentions. I don't know about you but this has to be one of my favourite films - for both the fashion and the soundtrack.
Although there is romance at the heart of the film it isn't one of those fluffy idiotic chick flicks - I like my films with a bit of bite. I won't ruin it for you in case you haven't seen it (you have to watch it immediately) but I also liked how this film didn't play by the rules and had a less than happy ending. 
Kathryn Merteuil is played by the fabulous Sarah Michelle Gellar and while she will always be Buffy to me, I think her character in this film makes the most interesting fashion choices. She plays uber bitch and step-sister to the lovely Sebastian - played by Ryan Phillippe. These have to be some of her most iconic looks from the film:

But what would Kathryn be wearing now?

I imagine her in one of her signature all black looks - the bralet from Topshop would be a staple in her wardrobe. The killer shoes would also be an absolute must and I'm sure this crucifix would be a firm favourite - although the real purpose of it was less than savory. Kathryn the seductress lives on in this outfit. 

What were your favourite looks from the film?

  2. Ooh I love Cruel Intentions! I prefer Katheryns outfits to Annettes. I think you matched the outfit quite well to her personality! Selma Blair's character has got potential though...cute bob but dresses like she is a little girl!
