Fashion In Film: Almost Famous

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. 


  1. I love this film. Kate Hud is so hot. Romy and Michelle is my favourite fashion film. I am a geeeeek.

    p.s- will you read my latest post please? It's an entry for a Grazia comp, I'd love your thoughts on it.

  2. Ugh, I LOVE your interpretation of what a modern-day Band-Aide would wear! I think you've got it totally spot on, nothing to argue with! My favorite's the top-right corner in the first picture-- if I were a Band Aide, I'd follow suit in her stylish steps.
