Bonnie and Clyde (1967)


Bonnie and Clyde is a 1967 film starring Faye Dunaway and Warren Beatty (one of the sexiest men of all time, in my opinion). According to Wikipedia, this was one of the first films of the New Hollywood era, when the American film industry was coming out of the Motion Picture Production Code. The movie's depictions of sex and violence were revolutionary at the time. However, this movie falls into the category of movies that my boyfriend describes as "movies that are supposed to be good, but are actually pretty boring." I guess it wasn't what I expected, but it was still pretty good. Bonnie's costumes in this film are iconic, and her wardrobe includes sweaters, mid-length skirts, silk scarves, and berets. Costume design is by Theadora Von Runkle, who also did Peggy Sue Got Married.


What's sexier than a man in a fedora?


A simple 1930's cotton dress

Phallic reference? I think yes


Note the fab 1960's make up





Berets are obviously the shit










This trench coat is probably my favorite



Surprise cameo by Willy Wonka!




I didn't get a shot of the last dress, but I didn't want to give away the end of the movie. That's a joke, you know what happens! This movie really makes me want to wear a beret, but unfortunately I feel I'll have to wait until fall for that.

  9. Thanks for your comment :)

    You're right, the Illuminati is from the Da Vinci code, however the book/movie talks about it in a more traditional/historical sense. The modern movement is what I'm referring to, I believe it's mainly the same concept, just in a different context. But it pretty much suggests that there are secret societies infiltrating our governments and spokespeople (celebrities, politicians, religious figures, anyone with power) in order to manipulate them and do other crazy shit. I don't really believe in it, I just find it heaps interesting! So I hope you don't think I'm some massive creep haha, xx
