Movie Characters Today

When I was doing my Cinderella post I noticed a lot of dresses reminded me of movie characters. I thought it would be fun to dress some of them for today.
First is the iconic green dress from Atonement. I chose this Black Halo gown. It is the same emerald green and there is a dropped waist that echos the thirties One of my favorite details on the original dress is the neckline cutouts. They look like small flowers so I paired it with a diamond flower necklace. I finished it with a simple silver sandal.
Next is Liesl's dress from when she does 16 going on 17.  Instead of a big puffy sleeve I chose this Asos dress with a modern flutter sleeve. The skirt is still flowy enough for dancing. I thought leopard flats would be fun and still be young.
The dress from Gentleman Prefer Blondes is amazing. This Carolina Herrera coral number is a little more modern. It still has the draping and a bow. It pairs wonderfully with a big choker. They aren't diamond but it still make an impact.
Finnaly its the dress from Sabrina, In the original it looks like a sheath dress with an attached train. This Oscar de la Renta has a similar look from the front. The original is paired with black heels but I think a hem like that is just dying to show off fancy shoes. I picked these Miu Miu shoes because they look fancy but they are still demure because of the short heel. They are very Audrey.
