Style Inspiration from Film

The Latest by Kate, Fashion Director

Each time I watch Vicky Cristina Barcelona, I fall in love with Penelope Cruz’s character, Maria Elena, a little more. She’s nuts in the most endearing way, which I attribute to her sexy Spanish flair, insane beauty, and my favorite, her sultry style. The silks and lace in a neutral palette are often reminiscent of lingerie, and the mix of bold accessories—a fringe bag, a black fedora—is inspired. It’s a breezy, easy look that exudes confidence.

My favorite outfit is a crochet tie-back top with palazzo pants—these are seriously coming back and I’m so excited about it. Above, Thayer designer Marsha Welcher and I channel Maria Elena’s style…and TRY to never behave like her smile

You can get the sultry look by mixing dressy and casual fabrics in neutral hues and black. Here are a few pieces to get you started:

* Alice + Olivia - Draped Panel Dress
* Aridza Bross - Cheyen Multi Strap Bag
* Erin Fetherston - Sleeveless Blouse
* Eugenia Kim - Max Feather Fedora
* Haute Hippie - Bohemian Paisley Dress
* Jen's Pirate Booty - Sade Tunic Dress
* The Lake & Stars - Trick Date Camisole
