Movie Inspiration ✦ Pearl Harbour

Pearl+Harbor+14.jpg

Pearl Harbor has always remained high on my Sunday afternoon movie binge list. Starring Ben Affleck, Josh Hartnett and Kate Beckinsale, the film is a dramatic retelling of the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor on 7th December 1941, during World War ll.

This action-packed love story was one of my main sources of inspiration for adopting the Pin-Up style as it beautifully depicts the fashion of everyday citizens of the time.

The movie lends a wide variety of wardrobe inspiration, from winter coats and evening dresses, to summery shorts and Tiki attire. The styling shows us a subdued but classic take on pencil skirts, structured jackets and cute holiday wear that easily transitions into the modern world.

The key factor of this inspiration in this movie is the hair. Thank you Christine Beveridge for producing styled yet realistic ‘dos that add a more everyday approach to 1940’s styling.

I encourage every Pin Up to book this in for a viewing - corny love story and all.
