I found Midnight in Paris to be overall quite charming, and enjoyed the movie. The best part of it however (well at least for me), wasn’t the storyline itself, but the beautiful settings, great actresses and fashion! I really liked the casual, laid back “west coast/Californian” style of Rachel McAdams character, Inez, and loved getting to see her, the magnificent Marion Cotillard, Carla Bruni, Kathy Bates and Lea Seydoux on screen.
The opening scene of the movie with our main characters in it – woohoo! We’re in Paris!
I love Rachel’s dress here – it’s something I would could wear through a whole work day and still feel comfortable. I wear my own floral version all the time. Here’s a very similar version, from Joie (and it comes with the belt included!), and another version under $100, via Velvet Heart.
A full length (and much more grainy) shot of her outfit – one of my favorites in the movie. I think Rachel’s mom dresses very elegantly as well.
The next day out at Versailles, with Rachel in another shirtdress – this time white, paired with black espadrilles. I also like her girlfriend’s outfit a lot in this scene, very chic and plus involves flats (always a plus, especially when walking around Versailles).
Match them with these great black espadrilles which are still a reasonable height.
Casual in a henley top and blue jeans (the suede tote is Chanel by the way, and her mom is carrying a crocodile Birkin). I love a good henley, and my favorite versions are from Splendid.
