From the charmingly naive Annie Hall to the aging alcoholic Broadway star Helen Sinclair, Woody Allen certainly has a knack for creating complicated multi-dimensional female characters.
His latest film, Blue Jasmine (which comes out today), introduces us to Jasmine, played by Cate Blanchett. She’s a disgraced New York socialite who, after discovering her husband (played by Alec Baldwin) to be a philanderer and a crook, is forced to move from her luxurious Upper East Side home to her sister’s “homey” San Francisco apartment.
“People criticized me for being a self-hating Jew, that’s come up. But not being able to create good women was not aimed at me very often,” so says Allen in a recent interview with the New York Times. Whether the women in Allen’s films are portrayed as neurotic or naive, confident or confused, they endure as strong female personalities onscreen–with a unique sense of style to match.
From Annie Hall to Vicky Cristina Barcelona, here’s how to wear your favorite Woody Allen character’s signature style.
