Banned from watching Basic Instinct by my mum, my best friend and I ventured to the video rental store, somehow managing to convince the teenage video clerk to lend the movie to a couple of kids.
It wasn’t the naughty sex scenes we were after, but more the character Sharon Stones portrays so artfully. Strong stylish women are after all somewhat hard to come by on the silver screen, so when you find one as a young girl, you get obsessed which results in a recent rewinding of the VHS tape in order to savour each splendid moment of Sharon.
Her styling consisted of white suits, turtle necks, sexy slips and well quaffed blonde locks with an icy attitude. Since then the sophistication of that character changed my whole idea of femininity and beauty, up until now I still see a white suit as the upmost symbol of female glamour.
