Eleanor from The Life Aquatic with Steve Zissou

Eleanor is a character from the Wes Anderson film The Life Aquatic with Steve Zissou, and is played by Anjelica Huston. The Aquatic Life with Steve Zissou is about an oceanographer that witnessed a shark kill a member of his crew. We follow his journey along with his crew as they encounter pirates and travel the sea. Eleanor is the estranged aristocratic wife of the protagonist, Steve Zissou.

Eleanor both fits in and stands out from the Zissou crew, who wears different variations of blue uniforms and red hats. She has a strong identity and confidence that we can see through her costume, often wearing flowy or linen pieces which are fitting to be by the sea and the summertime. She also wears turquoise jewelry that are shell or beach inspired, as well as blue streaks in her hair.
