How To Get Liv Tyler's Summery Look In Stealing Beauty

From the incredible soundtrack to the lush countryside to the romantic coming-of-age story, it’s no wonder why Bernardo Bertolucci’s Stealing Beauty is a cult favorite. The 1996 film stars Liv Tyler as Lucy Harmon, an American teenager who spends a soul-searching summer at a Tuscan villa, hoping to fall in love and discover the true identity of her father.

    She enchants the villa’s eclectic residents, including a dying artist named Alex (Jeremy Irons), and infuses the place with her youthful sensuality. Like so many of the romantic looks on the S/S 13 runways, including Zac Posen’s Harlem Rose Print Evening Gown ($9990) and Charlotte Ronson’s Water Lilies Crinkle Chiffon Flounce Dress ($420, similar style here), Lucy’s floaty frocks and cotton blouses perfectly capture the carefree spirit of that 90’s summer, which is why we can’t wait to steal her look.

    Who needs shoes when you’re traipsing around the Tuscan hills? Lucy was often spotted barefoot or in simple tennis shoes, similar to Keds’ classic Champion Originals ($40).

    When Lucy first arrives in Tuscany, her outfits smack of American-teenager-in-the-‘90s style, and New Look’s Black Ditsy Floral Tiered Mini Skirt ($27) hints at her grunge-inspired sensibilities.

    Though Lucy arrives in Italy armed with the mysterious riddles in her mother’s journal, you can fill up the crisp pages of Paper’s Q&A A Day Journal ($17) with your own secrets.

    So maybe your next few months don’t involve wandering around a sun-drenched olive grove, but at the very least, you can recreate Lucy’s summer-in-the-Mediterranean look with Topshop’s sweet Broderie Cross-Back Shirt ($64).
