I am absolutely in love with all the outfits Anaȉs Nin wears in the movie Henry and June. The actess that plays her, Maria de Madeiros is so cute and piquant I can barely stand it, and everything about her style is so perfect! She has subtle cat eye makeup, burning red lipstick, and amazing velvet dresses and capes! And I really love the orange tapestry type dress she wears near the beginning with what looks like a black lace waistband! I really want to find some little velvet hats now, but of course, I have no idea where to start! I want to get out some of my velvet dresses, but it's much too hot over here! Whyyy!
The little cape/ shawl thing is a beautiful shade of blue with wonderfully painted flowers, and seems to be part of the dress.
I really want this little velvet hat! The faded rose colour is beautiful!
I have to apologise to the actress for this photo, I took it from a terrible angle, her nose is really so cute!
The hat, the cape, the dress, the earrings...
Delicately drawn cat's eye makeup.
Hair comb. Seems to be carved of wood.
I am dying to have a collar like this! I might have to try and make one after all my assignments are over!
Embroidered dress and jacket.
