The fashion world is in a frenzy today over news (via WWD) that H&M will be releasing a capsule collection inspired by lead character Lisbeth Salander in the upcoming film, The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo.
The line will be designed by Trish Summerville, who designed actress Rooney Mara's costumes for the film.
H&M said Wednesday the 30-piece collection has "the dark urban feel that defines" Salander's character, with leather jackets and trousers, torn jeans, and slouchy hoodies.
Thanks, but if I'm going for that look, I can get it at Goodwill.
I'm impressed that Rooney Mara went to such extremes to play this character -- enduring body piercings, chopping her hair into this weird and hideous haircut, bleaching her eyebrows, and whittling her figure down to boyish proportions.
That doesn't mean I want to run to my nearest salon (or H&M for that matter) and get the look for myself!
HOWEVER, I am praying that all the little 20-somethings out there do exactly that -- because then I will look like a goddess. LOL.
If you're interested, the capsule collection will debut at H&M on December 14.
I'd love to know what you think about all this Girl With the Dragon Tattoo madness. Is looking like Lisbeth Salander really going to become a hot trend? *shudder*
