Seeing Double: Fanny & Holly

Gilly Forge Hat, Topshop Coat

     Results of watching the movie Funny Girl this weekend: 1. The Barbara Streisand obsession began. 2. That fur hat and orange coat outfit was a full-on Holly Golightly! Translation: we have a case of serious on-screen twinning. 
     The characters Fanny Brice in Funny Girl and Holly Golightly in Breakfast at Tiffany's wear practically identical outfits. The dark brown, fur topped hats and big-buttoned, mandarin collar coats are screaming a who wore it best moment. Although the look may seem absolutely outrageous and outdated (both films were made in the 60s), citrus colored coats are making a comeback. No joke! I've got Harper's Bazaar as evidence!
