Julia Roberts's Style in Notting Hill Is So 2020

It's been 20 years since Julia Roberts and Hugh Grant hit our screens in Notting Hill, and not only can you see the film's lasting legacy outside houses with blue doors in West London (this remains a key tourist photo op), but you can also see it in our wardrobes. Julia Roberts's character, Anna Scott, delivered one of the greatest onscreen lines (you know, the one about being a girl standing in front of a boy, asking him to love her), and she can also lay claim to all this year's key looks, from berets to kimonos.

I can still recite most of the script from the film, but until looking at pictures of her outfits, I never remembered her onscreen looks as particularly stylish. She wears many of the items that you'll see all over the streets of Notting Hill in 2020, from berets to leather blazers to tiny '90s style sunglasses. 

Scroll below to see the Anna Scott outfits we want to copy, and shop the key pieces to re-create her look.

Style Notes: This exact accessory combo is now a favourite with the hipster crowd. We're pretty sure Bella Hadid has worn this entire look.


2. White T-Shirt + Vans + Straight-Leg Denim

Style Notes: When it comes to leather jackets, it's all about blazer fits rather than classic bikers.


3. Two-Strap Heels + Leather Jacket

Style Notes: When it comes to shoes, Anna wore the shoe of the past few years—strappy mules—and classic Vans trainers.
