Rachel Weisz in My Blueberry Nights

One of my favorite directors, Wong Kar-wai knows how to make stylish films. His female leads are always sexy in a very understated way. I love the stylization of 1960s Hong Kong in his films, In the Mood for Love and 2046. The costumes and costume jewelry were breathtaking. The hairstyles and makeup make me wish I lived during the 1960s. But to have that look now would make you look like you're wearing a costume.

Recently, he directed the film My Blueberry Nights. While I didn't love the movie, I fell in love with the performance and look of Rachel Weisz. She's basically one of the only reasons the movie is worth watching. I couldn't stop thinking about how amazing she looked with messy sex kitten curls combined with the body hugging dresses. Her look was extremely beautiful and understated. Something anyone could recreate. My wardrobe is slowly filling up with low cut dresses which are perfect for my large chest and curvy body. Now, if I could only look as sexy as Rachel Weisz with my hair...

i actually spent an entire evening on ebay after watching 2046 i wanted those clothes so bad. even if i couldn't wear them without looking like i was playing dress-up, i just wanted them in my closet.

amber,

i hope you found some! it sucks that my body type doesn't fit into those dresses. but after watching 2046, i wore my hair in a bouffant hairstyle. i wore wing tipped black eyeliner. i'm still looking for amazing costume jewelry, but it's hard to find for some reason. i have a couple of vintage costume pieces that i love that will keep me happy until i do find some. :)
