I recently saw Country Strong, and I was very impressed-the movie was well done, well acted, and entertaining.
I particularly loved Gwyneth Paltrow and Leighton Meester's glamorous/country ensembles. I appreciated that the characters didn't wear outfits that screamed "country" but rather incorporated slight Western influences to their style. I love the idea of a chic dress with cowboy boots, or Gwyneth's big Texas hair with an asymmetrical little black dress - I feel like they were going for a modern country star look, and I think they got it spot on.
Fashion aside, I am also obsessed with the soundtrack. I can't stop singing the catchy songs from the movie which I'm sure is getting annoying...partly because I'm a terrible singer, but mainly because the only lyrics I know are "Cuz I'm country strooong!".
Besides my terrible singing, Country Strong makes me want to incorporate a little bit of Western style into my outfits...and also makes me wish I was a (less tragic) country singer.
Go see the movie if you haven't already!
