I am so excited to start this series called “Movie Fashion Edit”.
So MFE is a curation of all the lovely outfits worn in movies, music videos and any series I watch and see gorgeous clothing.
How did I come up with this idea?
I really don’t know but I was always that lady that had an eye for edgy clothing and if I spot a dress or a piece in a movie, you are sure to find me googling the deets of the outfit.
Movies I will be featuring in the coming days include;
– The devil wears Prada
– What women want
– Girls’ Trip
I also would love to do fashion edits on Nigerian movies especially ‘Isoken’ because I noticed the movie indicated they used a costume designer and there is a need to tell our stories as Nigerians.
I have always wondered why there were very few references to Nigerian Fashion designers and our fashion in General.
I believe if there are enough articles like this which showcases the beautiful clothes African designers make, more people would be moved to buy them.
I would also include edits from music videos, one of which I’m currently editing is the Jonas Brothers’ Sucker video. I can’t wait to show you the wonderful dresses and outfits they wore.
Now to my favourite movie by Cameron Diaz.
Synopsis of the movie
The other woman is a funny and interesting movie of an upwardly mobile New York lawyer Carly Whitten who is in her late 30’s.
She thinks she has finally found her true love in dashing investment banker Mark King, played by Dannish actor Nikolaj Coster-Waldau( Jamie Lannister in Game of Thrones).
The movie opens with Carly hanging out with Mark.
This Tilda dress is by Isabel Marant
This blush spaghetti top is from Top shop while the jewelry is piece from Lana jewelry.
She then get to the office and talks to Lydia her assistant who is played by Nicki Minaj.
She later meets up with Mark in his car and tells him of a meeting with her Dad she has planned for them.
Meanwhile, Mark’s wife is shown brushing her teeth while her husband Mark gets ready for work.
She reminds him of a family friend’s meeting they have to attend.
Mark meets up with Carly and gives her an excuse saying his housekeeper called and reported a serious pumbling problem in his house. Carly gets upset and leaves.
Mark and his wife Kate King goes to see their friends. Carly goes to see her dad. Her dad advises her to not give up so easily on men, encouraging her to go to his house.
Carly is seen stepping out of a taxi wearing a sexy pumbling costume.😛
She knocks on the door of what is assumed to be Mark’s house holding a plunger and guess who opens the door?
Kate, Mark’s wife. 😲😲😲
Of course, Carly doesn’t know yet that Mark is married. In fact, she mistakes Kate for his housekeeper and asks of Mark.😣😣🤤🤤
Kate introduces herself as his wife and immediately Carly is visibly shocked. She changes her story saying she is looking for another Mark who is very short.
Kate gently insists there is no other Mark living on their street except her husband leaving Carly flustered.
She immediately tries to leave by walking backwards, when the heel of her shoe breaks. She falls on the flower vase behind her and lands on their lawn.😷🙈🙈
Embarrassed, she apologises profusely and heads back to the street while Kate looks on.
Later, Carly is seen coming out of the elevator wearing this lovely jacket and skirt looking royally pissed.👹👹
Side Note: I loved this skirt so much after watching this movie in 2014 that I tried unsuccessfully to recreate it. Funny thing was I had very little pattern making skills then.
I might just try it again.
She sees a bouquet of flowers apparently sent in by Mark as an apology gift and she literally rips the flowers apart.
Lydia asks her what the matter is and she tells her Mark is married. Lydia encourages a very pissed Carly to try salvaging the relationship to which Carly insists on not going forward.
The discussions are pretty much summed up in these gifs.
In hindsight, the movie shows how single women in their late 30’s find it difficult to date.
Meanwhile, Kate is extremely confused and is seen shopping in a store.
She later goes to Carly’s office to confront her, asking her if she slept with her husband. Carly later confesses saying she never knew he was married.
What happens next is that they somehow become friends and figure out Mark is a serial cheat.
When they stalk him and follow him to a local club, they met up with Mark’s new fling who turns out to be Kate Upton and she joins their click after confessing she didn’t know he was married.
Carly eventually finds out that Mark had been stealing from his company and stuffing the money in the Bahamas. Crazy thing is the fact that the Bahamas account has Kate name and signature over all the documents.
All of the time Mark lied to Kate about going on important business trips, he would give her documents to sign lying about the content. Kate never read through because she believed in her husband.
The trio go to Bahamas and in the end, Kate has to make the ultimate decision of protecting her self and exposing her husband.
What they don’t show is Carly getting the partner involved and giving him his money while Kate gets some too.
The last scene shows Lydia, Carly’s assistant leading Mark to a conference room where the three ladies are seated .
He is extremely shocked to see all the women he has lied to in 1 room.
They finally confront him and he gets so angry. He hits his head on the glass.
What I didn’t mention was the fact that Carly met Kate’s brother and fell in love with him.
Model Kate Upton’s character also met Carly’s father and started dating him.
Summary: The movie ends with all the good things happening to the three ladies and all the bad things happening to Mark the serial cheat. And rightly so because it’s never a good idea to cheat on a woman because you will be caught.😁😁
Did you enjoy this piece?
Let me know in the comment section. If you are not one for movie spoilers, I promise not to have ‘plenty story’ in my next article.
N.B I will be doing the next movie fashion edit on another favourite movie of mine.
It has a designer’s name and an evil biblical character’s name as its title.
See you soon.
