Hors de Prix

Hors de Prix

In the April issue of Vogue I read a review about a whimsical film entitled Hors de Prix, translated to Priceless in English. The review was favorable and mentioned how lovely Audrey Tautou was in the role of Irene, but when hasn’t she been lovely? Don’t you dare say Dirty Pretty Things. Of course this movie made it into my film calendar, yes I truly have one, because there was no way I was going to miss the French language spoken by Ms. Tautou. Most importantly, my urge came from comparisons I heard to Breakfast at Tiffany’s.

Upon seeing the film, I noticed some mild similarities to B.A.T. but the story was completely French and different from the aforementioned. If you want to go solely on the idea of a young woman exchanging “entertainment” (sex) for fabulous clothes, then yes they’re are absolutely similar in that way. That is as far as I will go with the parallelism. Above all, Hors de Prix is undeniably cute while remaining adult, dramatic at times though obviously a comedy and the two leading characters will simply swoop you up. BUT it is the fashion that needs to be mentioned, because Audrey’s wardrobe was stunning. Cut to my favorite part in the movie (see below) – Irene has taken over Jean’s credit card and begins ripping off the tags to the clothes she has bought with it: Stella, Chanel, Hermes. 600 Euros, 1500 Euros, 800 Euros. She has no guilt whilst the pain in his face is clear! Tip++ see the movie especially for her gorgeous silk and rope dresses.

    Do you have any idea who made the dress she wears in the elevator – olive greenish/gray(?) with rope detailing? I’m in love and dying that I don’t know!
