Überchic Movie: Charade


Now coming to a computer near you Überchic will present the most stylish movies ever made and how to get the look. Look for it every month.

And what better way to start that with an Audrey Hepburn film and one of my favorites: Charade. Not as well know as Tiffany’s it is nonetheless a classic.

The film starts with Audrey in an immensely chic skiing outfit planning to divorce her husband. Returning to Paris she finds her amazing apartment stripped bare and her husband gone.

Luckily she stills has her Louis Vuitton luggage filled with Hepburn-favorite Givenchy: elegant coats, stylish little dresses and a huge assortment of hats and gloves.

With the city of lights as the background for her adventures and Cary Grant at her side, Audrey must investigate the truth about her husband, not once looking anything but überchic.

A must see.

I TOTALLY agree with you. Charade has the best costume design ever. It was classic and elegant, but in a modern way...and that's so hard to achieve.

charade was actually the 1st audrey hepburn movie i ever saw. I didnt watch tiffany's until i was in my teens. so charade is one of my favorites. and i have such a little crush on james coburn.

the red dress and the little peep toe flats are absolutely perfect.

trendkat said...

One of my favorite movies!
