Speaking of French, yesterday we were talking shoes…
Whatever your reasons for wanting to see The Da Vinci Code, don’t go for the fashion. The whole drama takes place over a (seemingly endless) 24-hours. Our heroes are forced to stay up all night without so much as a change of undies. Luckily, Audrey Tatou, being French, remains impervious to the trials and tribulations of unlocking biblical mysteries. She emerges at the end with shiny hair and shall we say- an angelic glow. Tom, on the other handâ€¦ HOW did they get his hair to look like that? We were fixated for at least the first third of the movie.
Get the Look:
Stay cool under pressure in an ultra-chic Max Mara suit on sale at Amazon.com. If you want to stay infinitely French, try Chanel on eBay.com for suits and separates straight from the runway. (Just like in the film, “Beware the con of man,” and beware the con of faux designer labels on eBay.)
Pair a flirty skirt with a romantically demure, yet still seductive blouse. We like Alice & Oliviaâ€™s lilac voile crystal button blouse or the emerald green chiffon button-front blouse from Tufi Duek with a black pleated skirt.
Bien sur, a girl is never completely dressed until she puts her shoes on. Since you wonâ€™t be chased through the streets of London by an albino with a gun (we hope), pick out a super-sexy pair of heels. Treat your feet to Christian Lacroix black satin pumps or patent peekaboo heels from Marc by Marc Jacobs. Again, you can always go with the classic, Chanel. The ultimate Da Vinci accessory? You could adorn your leg S&M style like Paul Bettany’s Silas character, but we recommend the symbolic fleur de lis. Bargain hunters, visit Emitations.com for fleur de lis inspired gems. Our favorite is the delicate CZ Fleur de Lis Outline Necklace, only $75.00. It’s not easy to be as brilliantly sophisticated as a descendant of the holy blood line, but we’re here to help.
