Silver Screen Sundays: Bonnie & Clyde

1967's Bonnie and Clyde marked a turning point in popular cinema and made way for the masterpieces of the late 1960's up to the pivotal year in movies, 1974. Faye Dunaway and Warren Beatty also ignited a fashion frenzy, with Dunaway rocking an assembly of printed scarves, pencil skirts, knitted sweaters and bias-cut dresses. Thanks to the anti-establishment comedy-drama, the “gun moll look” took off, triggering a resurgence of ‘30s retro chic. Even the lowly beret – once the sole property of Frenchmen and struggling poets – became a hot fashion item.
