Dinner and a movie is one perfect evening. Picture it set in London in the springtime, add a panel discussion with a fashion designer and Hollywood actresses from some of the most-loved films of all time, and you’ve taken date night to a whole new level of chic. On Thursday, May 14, Camille Charrière of Camille Over The Rainbow was one of the glam guests at Icons of Style—a curated film series hosted by Michael Kors in partnership with Vanity Fair and Fashion & Cinema.
Charrière is no stranger to life with a cinematic plot. An ex-lawyer turned fashion journalist, she is half-French, half-English, with one foot in both cultures. Growing up in Paris has taught her a thing or two about effortless style (think streamlined monochromatic pieces paired with tussled “woke-up-like-this” hair), while a move to London a few years ago added a definite edge to her wardrobe.
To toast the scene in the camera-ready city, we asked Charrière to share her favorite big-screen moments and why she loves calling London home.
My favorite film of all time is Pride and Prejudice. I’ve seen all 6 hours of it a gazillion times and it always makes me wish I could travel back to the 19th century (though I would probably ruin it all by bringing my smartphone with me).
The chicest big-screen character, ever, is Audrey Hepburn in My Fair Lady because besides becoming a perfectly polished lady, it is really her spirit and independence that Professor Higgins falls for.
If my life were a movie, it would be called Digitalism.
London is a cinematic city because there is never a dull moment, and its moody, photogenic streets provide the perfect backdrop to watch your life unfold.
When I arrive in town, the perfect day starts with a plan and ends somewhere completely unexpected, and leaves me feeling like there is no place like London.
