Look-of-the-Day

Last year, we featured Hilary Swank in P.S. I Love You a couple of times, because other upbeat Irish movies, including The Magdalene Sisters, The Field, Angela’s Ashes, and Bloody Sunday don’t exactly showcase fashion-forward Gaels.  Probably because they all tend to be about injustice, Catholic oppression, cultural uprisings and starvation.  Anyhow, here’s Holly Kennedy again from the 2007 film.  Swanks stars as a widow in New York, who loses her husband to cancer (played by the extremely sexy Scots-Irishman Gerard Butler) and he leaves her twelve final notes to help rebuild her life after he’s gone.  (Geez, even Irish romantic comedies are depressing!)  This is the final scene of the movie, when Holly returns to Ireland with her mother, played by Kathy Bates.  Holly is sporting a classic trench coat, a slim-cut jeans, knee-high black leather boots and supposedly a Marc Jacobs bag.  It’s the perfect outfit to trek across the Irish countryside in!
