Spectre Style: Madeleine Swann

Have you seen the new James Bond movie, Spectre?  We went to see it two weekends ago because the weather was dismal here in Seattle: downpouring rain + gusting winds = perfect movie weather in my book.  James Bond movies are always a great source of fashion inspiration, and you may have seen my previous posts on Skyfall style (Eve Moneypenny & James Bond).  Those Skyfall posts still get weekly hits, and it's no surprise because James Bond and the Bond girls are ultimate stylish globetrotters.  Today, in my first installment, I want to focus on the Bond girl Madeleine Swann, played by Léa Seydoux.  I am highlighting three looks worn by Madeleine Swann in Spectre--my three favorites for this character.  Possible spoiler alert if you have not yet seen the movie, but most of these images are promotional ones from 007.com and I tried to not reveal anything bit from the plot.

Outfit #1: white on white travel outfit.  Madeleine steps off the train in a white silky blouse and white wide leg pants, accessorized with a Chloe crossbody bag and sunglasses.  I instantly recognized the bag, as I'm sure many of you did, and although I was not able to find the rest of the exact pieces I am  sure they are just as expensive.  Scroll down to see how I recreated the look for less with items that are all currently available online and priced under $100 (be sure to click right to see all pieces in the widget)!

 Outfit #2: light green evening gown on the train to nowhere.  This dress is in many of the promotional shots for Spectre, and rightly so.  It looks amazing on Madeleine!  I question why a gal would bring a long satin evening gown like this on a train from Morocco to the middle of nowhere, but it's a Bond movie and this Bond girl makes quite the entrance in the dining car.  The exact dress is the Ghost Salma Dress in dusty green, priced at £225 GBP/approximately $342 USD depending on the current exchange rate.  Scroll down to see more gorgeous evening dresses available in shades of light green and priced lower than the original.

Outfit #3: Blue Lace Dress--Oberhauser's choice.  James and Madeleine are told to meet their host Franz Oberhauser for dinner, and she finds this Venus Lover dress on the bed in her room along with a pair of Jimmy Choo sandals.  This villain has expensive taste, as this dress retails for $1,095 and the heels retail for $795.  This dress seems to be sold out everywhere, but I've picked out several similar options that are currently available and all priced at $190 or less!
