A Golden Age inspired look from Jill Stuart's RTW 2013 collection.
Jill Stuart's RTW Spring 2013 collection at New York Fashion Week was inspired by a number of things that I love: Old Hollywood glamour, couture lingerie and the film L.A. Confidential (she says Kim Basinger's Lynn Bracken, a Veronica Lake-doppelganger, was an influence).
I'm definitely a fan of neo-noir films and the style and atmosphere evoked -- the style draws elements from film noir of the '40s and '50s, but with updated elements. Below are some of my favorite looks from Jill Stuart's runway show. I love the silhouettes and movement, with the pleating and use of flowy satin fabrics to create boudoir-inspired looks. You'll find some old and new inspiration at the end of this post, from Sean Young in Blade Runner to Faye Dunaway in Chinatown (two of my favorites).
