Fashion in Film: Factory Girl

December 13, 2007 by SheFindsGenevieve

Sienna Miller is the poor man's Edie Sedgwick. But that's hardly the point of Factory Girl – the point of this movie is to bring an era to life, and fashion retailers heard the clarion call. The Sixties are back, and SheFinds hit the 'net to help you recreate this iconic look. To work the Warhol vibe from head to toe, start with a headbandicon in a bold color and an eye-catching finish, all the better to show off your platinum bob. Slip on an intricate pair of earrings, the longer the better. Next up is the cats'-eye, which is key to the look and must be attempted whether you have a steady hand, or not. After the harrowing liquid liner, slipping into a pair of full-length tightsicon should be a piece of cake. Then it's time to don a tiny dress. For the bold and beautiful, this bold print shift dressicon could have walked right off the set.image As for shoes, Andy Warhol practically issued black ballet flatsicon at the door, and if you couldn't fit ten cans of Campbell's soup in your Crayola-colored bag, well then, your fifteen minutes of fame was up. This look is movie-faithful and pounds of fun. However, any stylish woman can tell you that they look best in what suits them, not what fashion dictates. If you are slightly taller or larger than Edie (that's most of us), a short trapeze dress and tights might be more nightmarish than a dream come true. To emulate the icon without risking life and limb, take the graphic spirit and bold lines and try a slightly more form-fitting shift in bold dots that will show off your curves – and cover your rear view. To keep the chill off your shoulders, throw on a canvas coat with bell sleeves and a jaunty tie that defines your waist and would be the envy of any factory girl.
