Recently I saw La Piscine and was super inspired by the fashion, set design and overall mood of the film. I definitely recommend! The movie also has Romy Schneider and Jane Birkin in it who are great style icons worth googling for style ideas if you’ve not already.
Carole Lombard was an American film actress who rose to popularity in the late 1930s. I hope her style inspires you as well. Visit http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Carole_Lombard for a sad story about her relationship with Clark Gable and her untimely death.
