Last night we watched the movie “Living Out Loud,” starring Holly Hunter and Queen Latifah. While the movie was slow, the costumes were fantastic! I highly recommend it as a “fashion movie.”
Holly Hunter’s character, Judith Moore, is recovering from a divorce, somewhat of a traditional “east coaster,” but interested in broadening her life. She’s lonely but goes out to a jazz club quite a bit. Her uniform is a little black dress that she wears with and without long pearls–very “Breakfast at Tiffany’s!” The movie is set in 1998, but her dress is so classic and elegant it could have been 1958, 2008 or 2018! The classic style, and color fit perfectly with Judith’s personal style and personality.
Quite the opposite of Holly Hunter’s character, Queen Latifah’s character, Liz Bailey a jazz singer, is very happy, a free spirit and wears gorgeous, colorful clothing. Again, I love how the clothing reflects her personal style and who she is.
What would you wear out to a jazz club? What fits your personal style?
