Halloween à la Pierrot le Fou

Hey Folks!

Yesterday was Halloween, my all time favorite holiday! There's just something so nostalgic about Halloween to me: the smell of leaves in the air, costume makeup, watching scary movies, eating caramel apples. It also means that other exciting holidays are approaching!!

Halloween is also one of my favorites because I have always loved dressing up in costumes!! I was one of those little girls growing up who would always dress up in my mom's clothes or wear plastic princess heels until they fell apart. I also model occasionally (mostly for clothing boutiques in the Pittsburgh area) and the best part is having my hair, makeup, and clothes look completely different than usual. 

This year my boyfriend and I decided to go as characters from one of our favorite French New Wave films: Pierrot le Fou. This film came out in 1965 and was directed by the legendary Jean-Luc Godard. It stars the stunningly beautiful Anna Karina and Jean-Paul Belmondo. Pierrot (Jean-Paul Belmondo) ditches his unhappy marriage and bourgeois lifestyle to be with his old flame Marianne (Anna Karina). They go on many crime sprees and eventually their relationship becomes strained. This film is just absolutely breathtaking, sweet, sad, and humorous. If you haven't seen it yet, I highly recommend that you watch it!!
