So it’s Sunday and I didn’t post Part II of Date Night with Alex Grant: The Thomas Crown Affair yesterday . . . but can you blame me? It was sunny and there were eggs and mimosas to be had at a three hour brunch and then a BBQ in Cambridge with friends. Not an excuse, no . . . but a desperate attempt at one, yes.
Without further delay, here is my take on a look from Fay Dunaway’s wardrobe in The Thomas Crown Affair. After posting Skip’s look for Steve McQueen on Friday, I got a lot of great feedback. One, that everyone loved Skip’s outfit from the film, and two that their favorite part is the infamous chess scene. I knew at that moment that I had to try and recreate the sultry dress that Faye wears. She looks like she could eat a man alive in that dress. I found two dresses that I think may replicate this effect . . . but beyond the dress what it really is about is confidence and natural ease and grace (no accessories necessary). Let me know which is your favorite!
