Match Point: The Wardrobe

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.

Match Point 1

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).

Match Point 2

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.

Match Point 3

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.

Match Point 4

A simple and elegant cream v-neck sweater (I love this version from A.P.C). Continue Reading
