My roommate returned from New York a few days ago with, among other things, a pack of 50 postcards from the Museum of Modern Art featuring old movie posters. Which got me thinking, most movie posters these days don't look all that great, I wouldn't want them decorating my walls . And they rarely, if ever, feature clothes I think are cool (Uma Thurman's yellow Game of Death tracksuit from Kill Bill will be covering the damp patches over our mirror as soon as the poster gets flattened out, and the wedding dress from Volume 2 looks amazing - maybe that's because of the katana in the frame, but they're the exceptions rather than the rule). I honestly can't think of anything recent that, fashion-wise, is a memorable poster image. Unlike the two below:
I know it's two posters for the same movie, but I swear, Audrey Hepburn wouldn't look out of place in 2007 despite the fact that it was made over forty years ago. Unfussy shapes, coloured and otherwise printed tights, and the sunglasses in the bottom picture..what's not to love? Especially the tights..and now I WANT the posters. Along with her tights, of course.
