  • MONTE CARLO (2011): I have SO MUCH to say about this one, guys. This #SDM is a complex moment - whilst Selena (aka our heroine, Texas sweetheart Grace) is the only one strictly wearing the strapless dress, we can’t speak about the film without delving into our co-heroines: Meg (Leighton Meester, radiant) and Emma (Katie Cassidy). Whilst ostensibly a Disney channel-esque teen romp, the film is surprisingly rich, exploring aspiration, escapism and class, and asking how far any of us can really run from our pasts.
    Grace is our heroine, but she is the most boring of the trio - reflected in these three gowns. Meg, perfect and poised in her foamy cake of ruffles; Emma, bold in dizzying florals (see her later yellow look for ultimate yacht outfit goals); and Grace, supposed to be the most striking, but disappointingly milquetoast in her strapless dress, swamped by her ridiculous jewellery and “quirky” cowboy boots(swipe 4 pic). Like her dress, Grace’s arc is a little uninspiring. After slipping into the lifestyle of British accented (read: evil) heiress Cordelia, Grace eventually returns to her sweet self by working at an orphanage (I could go on about THAT forever). It’s Meg and Emma who are more compelling. Meg, uptight and sad, finally deals with the death of her mother by falling foolishly in love with a fellow traveller. Emma, suffocated by small-town life, realises affluence isn’t all it’s cracked up to be, and eschews the elite lifestyle for her simple Texan fiancé (problematic in itself - is the film warning us against aspirations of upward class mobility?) The film is escapism, both for audience and our three heroines, and yet ultimately the lesson from the #SDM is (worryingly, comfortingly) this: stay in your lane.
