Last week, one of my friends mentioned they were reading The Talented Mr Ripley and I couldn’t resist digging the film out. Set in 1950s Italy, the wardrobes are fantastic and the setting is even more irresistible. Have any of you read the book?
You can probably tell that I love everything that Marge (Gwyneth Paltrow’s character) wears from the retro swim wear and crisp blouses, to her scarf-tied pony tails. I love her hair and makeup in the film too: she never looks too polished but every now and then you get that glamourous flash of red lipstick.
As if I wasn’t already craving a holiday badly enough, now all I can think about is running away to the Italian Riviera. And how much I really need a little typewriter in my life..
