I know I keep going on and on about my 90s obsession, but I really, really love that era. The fashion. The music.
Bill Clinton the first real celebrity President; and the world didn’t seem to be in a constant state of finical red.
Anyway, these are my style icons, that I sit and constantly watch their films (what else is there to do in this Australian heat?) having eye sex with the androgynous I-don’t-give-a-fuck-because-i’m-in-a-grunge-band stlye these leading ladies possess.
1. Winona Ryder in Reality Bites, Beatlejuice and Girl Interrupted.
Just Winona in the nineties full stop.
2. Julie Delpy in Before Sunrise.
If you haven’t seen this film- well then, do it! It’s pretty much the bohemian fantasy of every female I know, without being on the on the soppy side. Plus you get Julie Delpy, who is just so, SO who I want to be when I grow up.
3. Live Tyler in Empire Records.
This movie made me go out and buy everything I could by Coyote Shivers (no joke) which isn’t much as he is virtually unknown now. Though at one stage in LA in the early 80s, even band members from KISS were rejected entry to one of his gigs.
|The middle guy is Coyote Shivers, who also did the theme song for the film.
These three films have strongly influenced my style recently (although it may be to lack of funding of designer clothes).
Anyway, I think I may go and chop up some denim and watch Empire Records again! xx R
