There is a place in time to which my heart shall truly belong...An era where ladies were ladies and gentlemen were simply divine inspiration for women to be even more ladylike lol...Everything was elegant and vividly portrayed by stories passed on to us from our grandmothers, books and photos, to the Hollywood silver screen that captured timelessness and left its legacy for us to dream into..
A couple of months ago I promised Fastidious Babe that Id post a short list of classics to watch, to kickstart a movie title exchange amongst us..Before I leave you I'm about to jump with delight having received news that Coco Chanel's biopic movie before she became Chanel the legend, featuring Audrey Tatou will be released next month..in french...(more reason for me to seriously continue learning the language rather than stop every two months) so for the fluent ones, who wants to come watch with me and translate lol?
Heres a sneak preview :)
1.Gigi....Leslie Caron...theres a reason I put this first..
2.Butterfield 8...Elizabeth Taylor
3.Beyond the Valley of the dolls...Psychedelic-ly delicious.
4.The Graduate..Mrs Robinson is a classic
5.Gentlemen prefer Blondes..Monroe is actually watchable in this one.
6.High Society...my personal fave Grace Kelly flick.
7.Casablanca...the bittersweet "We'll always have Paris".
8.Belle De Jour...Catherine Denueve's wardrobe is tdf..vintage YSL and Roger Vivier make it worth watching..subtitles for the nonfrench peoplesss
9.All about Eve...Bette Davis
10.The way we were...Barbra Streisand and Robert Redford or Funny girl...Barbra streisand and Omar sharif
Bewitched the series, seriously a perfect backdrop at home to tune out the rest of the world when needed.
