There’s nothing like a good comedy. One that’s gut wrenchingly, laugh-out-loud funny. Unfortunately they are a dime a dozen, for many movies have tried, and failed. However, Bridesmaids was as much of a success as I had hoped it would be. Hilariously funny, witty and just so real. Not to mention, written by women with a complete women cast, I feel pretty darn proud.
This simple yet great story line is about how Annie Walker (played by Kristen Wiig) goes about dealing with the harsh realities of her life (losing her boyfriend, losing her job, having unbearable roomates, etc), and the fact that her best friend Lillian (played by Maya Rudolph) is getting married. Her life is in shambles but she strives to be the best maid-of-honor she can be (and having a lot of difficulty along the way doing so). Not to mention, Lillian has all of a sudden found herself a little-miss-perfect friend in the beautiful and posh, Helen (played by Rose Byrne) and Annie is not too pleased.
Obviously this being a 99.0% female cast, chances of seeing some nice clothes is bound to happen. Having 6 women in the bridal party leads to 6 very different styles. Since Annie and Helen were so competitive in the movie, I thought a little fashion competition between the two would be appropriate. Today I will take the time to review Annie’s cute and simple wardrobe that shows you don’t need to break your wallet to look great.
If you watched this movie you definitely noticed a pattern in Annie’s wardrobe: dress and blazer. In at least 3 different scenes of this movie, she chooses to wear this combination and the outcome is sweet and feminine. A cute summer dress is always a great choice (and can be found for a very good price) whether it’s for a supper or a day time get together. Adding a blazer with rolled up sleeves gives it an edgier look which adds sophistication (perfect for more formal events).
When it comes to travelling I put comfort first and wear my most comfortable sweats and shirt. This seems like a good idea until I arrive at my destination and don’t feel even remotely glamourous stepping off the plane. While still keeping comfort in mind, Annie Walker opted for jeans and a black and white nice loose striped top. The look is casual and practical, yet she looks put together and presentable (except for when she got drunk and made the plane take an emergency landing).
Annie worked shortly at a jewerly store and she was by far the worst salesperson you can have. One thing she did succeed at is her work attire. A v-neck thin sweater paired with a matching shirt is a great way to maintain the professional look without sporting a suit.
Despite Annie being miserable at her friend’s bridal shower, she still looked fantastic in a short red dress with a red matching leather belt. Simple and appropriate for an event like this, and differentiated itself with the 2 different sized straps. Her meltdown caused quite the scene, but at least she looked good while destroying that heart shaped cookie. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=d8_5uPfGXjA
