Let me just start off by saying that it’s pretty obvious why you should watch This Means War. With no words needed, I will simply state my argument with this one picture:
How can you say no to watching a movie like this, with 2 leading men who look like that? All jokes aside (although that wasn’t entirely a joke), this movie was surprisingly pleasant. It has a bit of everything: humour, love, suspence and fashion. The very lucky Lauren (played by the adorable Reese Witherspoon) is pursued by two gorgeous CIA operatives, who happen to be best friends. Lauren decides to play the field a bit and date both of them at the same time. While she is having (what I can only imagine to be) the time of her life, she is dressed the part of a wanted woman. From beginning to end her style remains feminine with bold colors and simple cuts.
On her first date with the swoon-worthy Tuck (played by Tom Hardy) she decided to be the southern belle she truly is and pair a cute mini navy dress with red peep-toe heels. This is great for an early supper because although still appealing to the eye, the ruffles on the dress suggest a more innocent daytime approach.
For her first date with FDR (played by the very charming Chris Pine), Lauren took a completely different direction and went for the sexy/sultry look. There is just something so mysterious and enticing about wearing black on black. She matched her Hervé Leger dress with a smokey eye and to add the slightest of pop color, she wore my dream shoe: black Louboutin peep-toe pumps.
This character is biased towards simple styles and bold colors. This outfit is no exception. This adorable red, slightly over-the-knee wrap dress is perfect for the office at work, but the bubbly sleeves add femininity to the cut and make it great for a night out for supper.
If you don’t know how popular denim shirts are nowadays, then you haven’t entered a mall in a while! Denim tops have broken the mold and are now accepted in society. They go great with jeans(different color prefarably), regular pants and skirts (my favorite combination is a denim top with my red pants or skirt).
Stay tuned for Wednesday’s post on the second part of Lauren’s style review from This Means War. Until then enjoy your evening while popping some popcorn and dancing to “This is how we do it” from Montell Jordan (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0hiUuL5uTKc) like Lauren did, in a very comfortable looking oversized grey grandfather sweater.
