Matt Damon, Jude Law and Gwyneth Paltrow in The Talented Mr. Ripley, 1999

It’s considered to be one of the most stylish films of the last 50 years and we couldn’t agree more. One of the most talked about films of 2000 when it was released in late 1999 for Oscar competition, The Talented Mr. Ripley, going on twenty one years old now, has come of age. It competed with other stylish films the same month it was released: Anna and The King and The End of the Affair.

It’s the stylish, brisk, and nonchalant pace of the film, set it Europe, that gives it the edge of a being a true thriller. With murder, mayhem and yes, lots of affairs set in the 1950s, it’s one of our favorite style films of the 2000s, and it holds up remarkably well. In fact, most of the clothes the stars Matt Damon, Jude Law, Gwyneth Paltrow, and Cate Blanchett with their innate classic elegance could be worn this very minute.

Here’s are a few more of our favorite of the film’s style moments….la dolce vita.

THE STYLE: The crisp, cool evening allowed native Austinites to break out their finest cool-weather chic attire. Many sported wool coats that perfectly complimented designer bags that perfectly captured the essence of the stylishly modern Austin woman. Once inside, guests mingled and shopped as they sipped champagne and enjoyed light bites that perfectly complimented the intimate and welcoming space. The two month long pop-up will be in Austin through April 28th so there is plenty of time for you to enjoy the perfect spring weather and sample the latest Austin hot spot.
