Fashion In Film: Almost FamousSaturday, 11 February 2012
Sticking to what I said last month I'll be keeping some posts as a regular occurrence - I thought I'd give the fashion in film post another go.
This time it is the turn of Almost Famous. If you haven't seen this film I'll give you a quick run down - the film follows a young William on his road to become a successful music journalist. At the tender age of 16 he is asked by Rolling Stone magazine to join the up and coming rock band Stillwater. Upon this trip he learns a lot about life, love and rock and roll. He is also ends up getting to know a group of girls who call themselves the Band-Aides (not groupies they insist) - among them is Penny Lane played by Kate Hudson.
The Band-Aides are actually the source of my fashion inspiration this time. The 70's fashion with a twist will be a great place to take pointers from this summer. Crop tops, velvet and layering. Perfect.
So what would a modern day gro... sorry band-aide wear? I thought I'd take a look and put something together:
All of these were found at a cool boutique I stumbled across while researching this post - Amelie Boutique. Go check it out and if you haven't seen Almost Famous go watch it... now.
