I think of all the “fashion films” out there, Almost Famous is one of the most commonly mentioned. In fact, I doubt that it’s essential that I even post screenshots (although I shall happily on request!) for you to recognise the “look”. This year’s (Northern Hemisphere) spring editorials have a major 70s sensibility. I love it!

I’ve always had a strong affinity with that rock n’roll mood. Even though I’ve become far more “girly” in the past couple years, I still prefer to throw a shrug, tassles, massive rings, messy hair and maximum prints on maxi skirts into the mix. I think when you come from a boring standard, white, middle class background, it’s about as edgy and cool as you can get. Yeh!

These are some fresh editorial prints from Australia’s Marie Claire’s April edition┬ánamed after the film that needs no introduction, Almost Famous.
