In celebration of The Blitz Weekly‘s fashion issue, I thought it might be fun to take a look of some of the big screen’s most fashionable characters. There were literally hundreds to choose from, but I narrowed it down to the five characters whose performances were only out shined by their wardrobes.
#5 Christian Bale as playboy bachelor Bruce Wayne in Batman. The first time he entered the room wearing an impeccably tailored two-button charcoal grey pen-stripe suit by Giorgio Armani, it was clear that he WAS Bruce Wayne. The billionaire designer said he wanted to create a “classic look that projects strength and consistency in Wayne’s edgy, mysterious world.” I’ve never seen Armani look so good.
#4 Janet Jackson as the powerhouse magazine editor Joanne in Tyler Perry’s For Colored Girls. She dazzled in a fitted leather couture two piece ensemble that was as fierce as her no-nonsense character. Her sassy cropped coif and blood red lipstick perfectly complimented Ms. Jackson’s edgy look.
#3 Bond, James Bond…the Daniel Craig Bond also makes the list. Turnbull & Asser has been official shirt and bowtie outfitters for 007 since the 60’s. And the tuxedo, who else, Mr. Armani makes the list for a second time. Bond’s wardrobe oozes a refined, timeless elegance one would expect from the world’s most high-profile secret service agent.
#2 SJP-That’s Sarah Jessica Parker for those of you missed the Sex in the City juggernaut. Parker played the fashionably flawless Carrie Bradshaw, a New York newspaper columnist, socialite, fashionista, and later, freelance writer for Vogue. Let’s face it, Carrie and the gang single handedly made those flashy red soled Christian Louboutins the must have item of the decade! She made paying $1500 for a pair of shoes seem like the most normal thing in the world. She dazzled in Dolce & Gabbana, was glorious in Gucci and fabulous in Fendi. A style winner by all accounts.
#1 Meryl Streep as fashion magazine editor (not so loosely based on Vogue’s editor-in-chief Anna Wintour) Miranda Priestly in The Devil Wears Prada. The title says it all, right? Meryl exuded class, style and elegance in every single frame of the film. With a wardrobe estimated to have hit the $1 million mark, it’s no surprise that Miranda tops the list of film’s most fashionable.
