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 named after the film that needs no introduction, Almost Famous.
