There are so many 90’s Gwynnie movies that could be in Fashion in Film. One of my personal favorites: A Perfect Murder, a 1998 thriller directed by Andrew Davis starring Gwyneth Paltrow, Michael Douglas, and Viggo Mortensen. Gwyneth Paltrow is Michael Douglas’s pretty young wife, who is cheating on him with a vagabond artist (Viggo Mortensen). I won’t tell you more than that because it would reveal the plot, and this is actually a highly watchable movie so don’t just look at these screengrabs, rent it to see yourself at home! It is a lot of fun, even though the supposedly amazing art that Viggo Mortensen creates in this movie actually hurts my eyes. Michael Douglas is a lot of fun to watch in the role of a homicidal husband.
Gwyneth’s look is NY art collector meets Carolyn Bissette meets Connecticut country club. Which is to say, it rules! I die for the chocolate shearling coat she wears for a lot of this movie. There are also two scenes where she wears an amazing paisley shawl with a chunky sweater and tube skirt and suede boots I am obsessing over. Taking notes on the headband and silk neck scarf tucked into thick crew neck knits too. That is definitely going to be a good look for fall 2019.
Rent this movie on iTunes or Amazon!
