Last month, the Fashionista staff waxed lyrical on our top movies from which to cull fashion inspiration.
Yes, Reality Bites and Working Girl are high up on my list of movies that influence my personal style. But last night, while watching the first few frames of 1995′s Kevin Smith masterpiece Mallrats, I realized something: It feels like the entire fashion world is currently inspired by Brandi, played by Claire Forlani.
Forlani first appears on the screen in a cropped heather grey sweater, oversize thick-rimmed glasses, a men’s watch and a pair of high-waisted Levis worthy of a Garance Doré photograph. Later on, she’s slinks onto the scene in a white sheath–very mid-’90s minimalism.
Not to mention the actress’s shiny, wavy hair–which would look perfect in any decade. Lagging career aside, Forlani circa-1995 is down right enviable.
