An affair to remember, a tragic love story starring Cary Grant and Deborah Kerr. I can’t believe I hadn’t seen this film up until a couple of years ago. I watched it again recently after buying it on dvd. It never fails to make me cry.
 
So since I love watching old films and looking at the different fashions. I have decided to do a feature on my favourite outfits from this film and find the modern alternatives. Here it goes:

I love Kerr’s evening wear in this film. Lots of gorgeous drapery, ball gowns, diamonds and fur stoles. Shame I don’t really have a need for this type of clothing. Le sigh.

Her coat looks so warm. It would have to be if you were dancing with Cary Grant out on the deck of a boat!

Topshop Tweed Coat

 
This Topshop coat has the essence of Kerr’s coat, only with a nipped in waist and a bow at the neck which makes it perfect in my eyes!

The closest I could find to a peal bracelet but I think these are pretty cool.

I think this is my favourite outfit in the film. Just so cute and pretty – ideal for the setting.

Just a modern twist on old classics. Should I do another? What film should I do next?
