Hugh “Ransom” Drysdale from Knives Out

Hugh “Ransom” Drysdale (played by Chris Evans) is considered spoiled even by his own family’s standards.

Marta Cabrera from Knives Out

Marta Cabrera from Knives Out

Marta Cabrera (played by Ana de Armas) is Harlan Thrombey’s caretaker and friend. Marta is dressed to face the chilly New England weather, with plenty of layers and a colorful handmade scarf. The most important piece of her wardrobe, however, may be her pristine white shoes, which tell their own story as the movie unfolds.

Benoit Blanc from Knives Out

Detective Benoit Blanc from Knives Out

Benoit Blanc (played by Daniel Craig) is a private detective with a deep Louisiana drawl who is hired to investigate the mysterious death of Harlan Thrombey. A true Southern gentleman, he wears crisply tailored suits accented by floral ties and handsome pocket squares. When he is deep in the throes of interrogating a victim or solving a crime, he has been known to ditch the suit jacket, roll up his sleeves, and tuck his tie into his shirt so that it doesn’t get in the way. A doughnut would make an excellent addition as an edible accessory to Blanc’s ensemble.

Rosie Betzler from Jojo Rabbit

Rosie Betzler from Jojo Rabbit

Rosie Betzler (played by Scarlett Johansson) is a single mother raising her son in Nazi Germany while her husband is away at war. Secretly anti-Nazi, Rosie hides her late daughter’s Jewish classmate in her attic while her son Johannes (“Jojo”) attends a Hitler Youth training camp. Rosie wears an array of fashionable vintage clothing, so there are many ways to recreate her look. Some of the staples of 1940’s fashion include high-waist trousers, cropped sweaters, and red lipstick. When it is not possible to find an exact replica of a specific outfit, layering different pieces can often evoke a similar effect.

Frank West from Dead Rising 1

Frank West from Dead Rising 1

When Frank West is first introduced in Dead Rising 1, he is a determined and unpredictable photojournalist always on the lookout for the next big (and likely dangerous) scoop. Once he is thrown into the zombie infected town of Wilamette on assignment, he begins to uncover a sinister government cover up and becomes embroiled in it himself. Frank’s outfit is sensible, making it easy to run and fight his way out of Wilamette when necessary. If you do not already own a high-quality camera like the one Frank uses, a simple phone case made to look like one can lend the same aesthetic.
