Bonnie & Clyde

The first time I watched the 1967 film Bonnie and Clyde, I remember thinking that Faye Dunaway, as Bonnie, looked absolutely stunning in it, and I almost didn't mind that her character was a total nutter. She just smoulders in every scene. Warren Beatty played her perfectly charming partner in crime, looking dapper in well-cut three-piece suits and fedoras. The glamour and sexiness of Bonnie and Clyde contrasts brilliantly with the violence of the story, inspiring fashion ever since. Definitely one of my all-time favorite films.

I also love the moody song "Bonnie and Clyde", sung by Serge Gainsbourg and Brigitte Bardot. You can almost smell the cigarette smoke. Watch the video here.
