Part two of the beautiful period film street style guest posts by Miss Moss. If I were a magazine editor, I'd hire Diana on the spot! I particularly love the Shakespeare in Love one, it gave me a bit of a giggle. Which one's your favourite?

Thanks to everyone who commented on my previous post regarding the Galliano issue. The people who read this blog make me think that the world is full of wonderful people, despite evidence to the contrary at times.

And thanks again to Diana for providing these stunning images - you rock!

P.S. There's been quite a fuss in the ballet world regarding the premiere of Christopher Wheeldon's ballet adaptation of Alice in Wonderland. Have a read of the article I wrote on it for Behind Ballet. Aren't the pictures from the ballet just gorgeous?

I really do love all these outfits (plus those in part one) but the shakespeare in love one totally takes the cake!

TC said...

these are perfect! the jou jou villeroy image blows my mind! the outfit, the stance, the colour in the background....

the whole thing makes me want to have a bit more fun with my clothes ...

thanks for posting! you always have lovely ones...

Miss Moss said...

the comparison between Elizabeth I & Lynn Yaeger made me smile too. i was a bit hesitant to include it at first because i wasn't sure if others would see the humour in it - i'm glad you did.

I'd so love to see this Alice in wonderland at Covent Garden, it looks so magical.

Such a great post and a wonderful eye to see all these connections.

I am in awe of this series. Seriously, I dress like I would have stepped out of a period film on a daily basis... or at least I try. So I love love love this so much. http://www.avalonnehall.com/search/label/what%20i%20wore

I'm doing a series of outfit photos inspired by films and artworks and paintings. I just did one inspired by Picasso's Boy with a Pipe. Feel free to check it out!

I can't believe I just discovered your and Miss Moss's blogs. In love. Thanks for the inspiration!

I'm loving, loving this series :) And I LOVE that wall behind Colin Firth !!!!

Tracey said...

Oh my - I love them all!!! :D
They are all incredible ... and I can't stop looking at them ... but at a push I would have to go with the beautiful earthy simplicity of the 'Out of Africa' number.

Deleilan said...

Oh, the pairing with The King's Speech is simply divine! Aside from the shoes, this is how I'd love to dress...

Bridget said...

Incredible. You could do these forever, and I'd love all of them.

erica-knits said...

I love miss moss's pairings. She does an unbelievably great job. I have a soft spot for Lynn Yaeger and the Queen. Oh and that Jou Jou Villeroy shot, wow. Heading off to read your article on Wheeldon's Alice in Wonderland...

Sarah Morgan said...

Such a wonderful series! I especially love the Out of Africa + Cold Mountain comparisons. So perfect!

Olga said...

This is a brilliant selection. The idea, the spirit, and the tones of the clothing really match to the films.

Siubhan said...

I am so so admiring of Miss Moss's comparison blog posts - I would hire her in a flash too! I love these in particular though as I am a complete unashamed sucker for a period drama. My favourite I think for laughs is The Duchess, for looks, probably the King's Speech. Amazing.

Design Elements said...

Felix Curds said...

gorgeous gorgeous gorgeous. particularly loving the modern take on lark rise to candleford:)

Sundari said...

Hah! These are great. I wonder if they were actually channelling an era or a certain film when they got dressed that morning, it is perhaps a subconscious decision on their part. Either way it is just brilliant.

tywo said...

This is genius!
I love the "cold mountain" one.
Have a wonderful weekend.


LOVE!

Rina said...
