Get the Look from Moonrise Kingdom!
Last weekend, Walter and I went to see Wes Anderson’s new film, Moonrise Kingdom. Set on the fictitious island of New Penzance on the shores of New England, it’s a sweet coming of age love story between two 12-year-old misfits.

I immediately connected with the heroine, Suzy Bishop (despite her age and violent streak), for her love of reading, French music and sartorial taste.

  • Step 1

    Wanting to replicate Suzy’s look from her tryst with the film’s hero, Sam, I used Maybelline Color Tattoo Cream Eyeshadow in Edgy Emerald and layered MAC Satin Eyeshadow in Electric Eel on top. I chose to skip mascara and foundation, opting to use a bit of concealer instead for a more natural look.

  • Step 2

    I couldn’t find a pink dress that matched Suzy’s, but I thought this black peter pan dress from Forever 21 worked well. Knee socks were a must, as were “Sunday shoes”, or in my case, grey oxfords.

  • Step 3

    I topped off the look with a pair of binoculars, a cross body bag and, the pièce de résistance, a tabby cat (special thanks to my cat, Zooey for participating!).
