Today’s post is part of my wardrobe recap series – you can go through the remainder of this series, here.
This week’s movie wardrobe recap is from an old favorite of mine – Match Point. This was the first Woody Allen movie I ever watched, and I remember sitting there through this particular one and thinking, “I though Woody Allen movies were supposed to be lighthearted and funny!”.
That being said, I always thought Match Point was a great movie and I loved the wardrobe (with a few standout pieces). A lovely reader, JC, recently reminded me of this great movie ripe for the fashion picking, and a few days later, I was re-watching the film.
This is one of the few wardrobe recaps where I’ll concentrate on more than one central character – in the case of this film, the two main female leads – the more casually (and sometimes sexy) attired Scarlett Johansson, and the more conventionally classic, monied Emily Mortimer.
Starting off with one of my favorite looks of this entire movie – Scarlett in this amazing white wrap shirt dress. It’s so simple, yet so lovely on her.
Anyone who has watched Match Point has to remember this scene, as Scarlett’s walking out the door, with the white dress swishing. Iconic.
I hunted all around for a similar white dress, and found two that while not exactly the same, give the same “feeling”. A spaghetti strap version from Alexander Wang ($350), and a French Connection shirtdress ($120).
Next up – one of our first views of Emily Mortimer (aside from tennis whites). You can immediately see the contrast in dress sense between her and Scarlett- much more preppy, classic. subdued.
In a pink blouse with navy tipping. This looked like Thomas Pink to me, but I was unable to find it on their website. Instead, I found a similar version from Ann Taylor.
