Cinema Style Christmas Wishlist

Dear Santa,

While a trip to St. Barth's, world peace, tickets to this week's Paul McCartney concert on Sirius, a leopard Valentino bag and film festival tickets would be wonderful in my stocking, the following is a list any stylish film buff would be happy to receive:

The Audrey Hepburn Muse Collection

Seven of Hepburn's best films including Breakfast at Tiffany's, Sabrina, Roman Holiday, Paris When It Sizzles, War and Peace and Funny Face highlight some of the best fashion moments in her career. Available for 70.99 on Amazon.

All Posters

A great site for unique film posters -- think instant art for the wall. You can see the collection at I love the different take on Sunset Boulevard.

100 remastered top hits from obscure films -- and I bet you never knew Billy Paul's Me and Mrs. Jones was from the film Beautiful Girls. MP3's available from Amazon for a mere 0.99 here.

Movie Posters 2011 (Universe Publishing)

Twelve iconic films from the National Film Registry from Blazing Saddles and The Graduate to Sabrina and A Night at the Opera. It beats a year of cute puppies anytime. 12. 59 on Amazon.

Columbia Best Picture Collection

It's all here -- 11 Best Picture winners including Kramer versus Kramer, Bridge on the River Kwai, Lawrence of Arabia and It Happened One Night. 65.99 on Amazon.


Bored with Scrabble? Try this interactive film game where you watch film clips, test your knowledge and perhaps humiliate yourself at parties. 18.49 at Amazon.

Bob Willoughby's Audrey Hepburn Photographs 1953-1966

If money is no object, Hollywood photographer Bob Willoughby's collector's edition of "The Tiffany Princess in a Little Black Dress" is wonderful. Behind the scene shots from Roman Holiday, My Fair Lady and many more. And only 700.00:) Available from Taschen.

Happy Shopping!

  1. $700 for the new Audrey Hepburn photo book? So much for publishers' worries about the future of traditional books in print! But that's not to say I wouldn't buy it if I could.

  2. Iknow!Apparently they only did 1000 of them. I think the Bergdorf Windows book is around 450-500:)!

  3. Just found your site via Maison 21. Didn't know anyone was into cinema style like I am. Thank you thank you!!!
    In my next life, I am a Set Decorator!!!!

  4. Oh, well, a book I will only see at the store....and that might be difficult too! I agree, as a collectors item it will not make head lines for many! Too bad!
    But your recommendations are fabulous! Love the idea of a Hepburn collection! Just saw Roman Holiday!


  5. PS: I have a give away! Come and see if you like!!

  6. A lovely indulgence any time of year is the 2008 "Murnau and Borzage at Fox" DVD Box Set. A collection from the height of silent film artistry and great romantic performances, not to mention the first Oscar winning art direction by Harry Oliver. Includes masterworks like "Sunrise" 7th Heaven" "Lucky Star" and much more.
