Style Inspiration: Miranda Priestly

The Devil Wears Prada is one of my all-time favourite movies. Not only does it revolve around fashion, but it also focuses on a very successful business woman, Miranda Priestly. She works at Runway fashion magazine as editor-in-chief, and her opinin is the only one that matters. She carries herself with incredible grace and elegance, and keeps her emotions to herself, an important quality in remaining professional. Her style in the movie is so effortless and perfectly put together. I wish there were more movies showcasing successful women and great fashion.

Recently I was contacted by Farfetch asking if I would like to enter their competition to win a $350 voucher. I had to recreate a look of a fashion iconic movie moment. Some of the other movie choices were The Great Gatsby, Sex & the City and Breakfast at Tiffanys. 

The pieces I chose to recreate the look are in my opinion very timeless and classic. I love the cut and drape flow of the dress, with a belt to emphasize a waist. The red gloves are the perfect pop, which also go very well with the purple dress. The handbag is probably my favourite item, simple and structured but with a beautiful round handle. The lace heels were the perfect shoe, adding a mix of texture, but still toned down.
