Look of the Week: Femme Noir

With thirteen days of Film Noir Classics ahead of us at the Roxie, all fashion fantasies are turning black-and-white. And with all the bold shoulders, nipped waists and luxurious fabrics seen on the fall runways, it seems we're not the only ones. The femmes of film noir exuded a ladylike sex appeal that has us longing for a full-on Forties revival, but while we wait with baited breath, this is what we'll be wearing:

1. Black Halo Jackie O Mini, $345: Seduce any man in sight with this sophisticatedly sexy frock.

That's Noir, Baby. Film Noir!

If there is a current topic better suited than the news biz to the hard-boiled, cinematic stylings of Film noir, then I know it not.

Like this beloved B-movie genre, so, too, is the (once-beloved) newspaper industry black-and-white ... and bruised ... all over. The majority of American newsrooms, sadly, are In a Lonely Place, indeed.
