A touch of Elegance..

Breakfast at Tiffany's. An affair to remember. Casablanca. Brief Encounter. 

Timeless classics, and a perfect way to spend a Sunday! I am a sucker for all movies, but there is something beautiful about classical Hollywood cinema. The stars are glamourous and there is always an air of elegance and simplicity that the stars of today lack. From a young age, I was always fascinated by cinema. I loved flicking through my mum's huge book of old Hollywood stars. The music, clothes and historical settings are always fantastic.

Actors and actresses alike were beautiful too.. Elizabeth Taylor, Marilyn Monroe, Gregory Peck, Cary Grant, Gene Kelly..

Breakfast at Tiffany's is a favourite of mine. It may be verging on New Hollywood but in my eyes, it still has the style and subtle innuendo that I love. 

I literally can't wait to snuggle up with a duvet and watch film after film, with a hot chocolate in hand. Chance will be a fine thing though haha!

Anyone agree? Has anyone got a favourite old Hollywood star or movie?? :-)
