Style Icon: Berenice Bejo as Peppy Miller in "The Artist"

I saw The Artist last night at the romantic Paris cinema across from The Plaza Hotel. I loved this film so much, definitely my favorite film of this past year. I was transported to another era entirely and longed to live during the Golden Age of Hollywood. Everything about this film was brilliant- the music, the performances, the story, etc. And also the fashion, especially the beautiful 1920s boudoir belonging to up and coming film star Peppy Miller, played by Berenice Bejo. Peppy pranced about in sequins, drop waist dresses, feathers, furs, pretty hats, sailor dresses, red lipstick and a curly little bob. How it made me long to walk around the streets of Beverly Hills in my best outfit and gaze at the enormous houses while spotting film stars!  I especially loved the last tap dance sequence with Charles and Peppy, her dress and hair pace was exquisite! This morning, The Artist received ten Oscar nominations. Berenice received one and with her lanky limbs and kookiness, she plays Peppy to adorable perfection.
