Last night we checked out the 1971 noir-ish movie Klute at Film Forum, mostly to see how they outfitted Jane Fonda to play an early '70s call girl named "Bree." And we were not disappointed. Other than her somewhat unfortunate haircut, which recalled the electroclash "fashion mullets" of 2001 (remember that?), we found a lot of outfit inspiration. Our favorite Jane Fonda look was a mini-dress cinched at the waist with a wide belt with over-the-knee leather boots. But the true genius of the outfit was the classic trench thrown on casually over the whole ensemble. In retrospect, we think the whole film should have been devoted to exploring how adding a trenchcoat to any outfit instantly makes it look WAY less slutty. --ALISON COOL
