Lingerie and Jewels: Four Cinematic Pairings
24.05.16

It’s no secret that lingerie and vintage jewelry are two of Love & Object’s favourite things. Worn together, and you have the makings of a style moment. 
“I think it is what is worn underneath that really inspires a women to feel beautiful in her clothes - that inner secret glamour.” - Alice Temperley of Temperley London

Read on for our pick of lingerie moments in film history, and how best to emulate them.


Michelle Pfeiffer as Elvira Hancock in Scarface
Playing the ambitious, glacial trophy girlfriend of Tony Montana (Al Pacino), lady tiger Elvira was a devotee of opulent slips. Preferably ones that were slit to the thigh and paired with glittering chandelier earrings.

Kirsten Dunst in Marie Antoinette
In Sofia Coppola’s version of Marie Antoinette, Dunst strips down to little else than thigh-high stockings and a fan, for seducing suitors of course. Let’s not forget the Rococo corsetry and lashings of pearls.

Anne Bancroft as Mrs. Robinson in The Graduate
The powers of hosiery as a cunning plot device are made clear in 1967 classic flick The Graduate. Combine with matching black lace separates and geometric sparkler earrings.

Charlize Theron as Helga in 2 Days in the Valley
Rocked a sheer lace one piece underneath a white silk robe in the 1996 film. Wear exactly this, alongside a pair of delicate drop earrings.
