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.
