Mattie Ross, style icon?
I saw True Grit the other night. The trailer came on before Black Swan, and the next day I told my roommate that I wanted to see it. “Oh,” she said. “If you want to go tonight you can give my name at an advance screening at the Lightbox.”
Awesome. And yes, please.
So I went, and they gave everyone free popcorn (double awesome), and the movie was great. Well, the movie was good. I liked it, but what I loved was Mattie Ross (played wondrously by Hailee Steinfeld). I also, somewhat surprisingly, loved her outfits.
I was especially into this peter pan collar:
There were also some amazing black buttons, and of course, I’m a sucker for perfect plaits. Mattie Ross is too awesome – a perfect mix of innocence and toughness. The same is true of her outfits.
