Populaire

I saw the 2012 film Populaire last night and absolutely adored it. I’m pretty reactive when I watch tv shows or movies so that was definitely me squealing and screaming during the competition at the end. My roommates gave me the side-eye…

This movie made me smile for the typical reasons – great acting and writing and visuals – but also because I stopped the movie half way through and looked into how hard it would be to recreate the beautiful skirts and dresses worn by Deborah Francois. I fan girl’ed over those skirts so badly. My boyfriend thought I would be someone who already knew how to sew so I’ll take that as a sign and hopefully spend the rest of my life attempting to recreate the wardrobe from this film. How much is a sewing machine anyway?

I really enjoyed this film and recommend it. Romain Duris was a heart throb – as usual.

Update: It looks like it will be very hard and expensive to recreate her wardrobe…
