How to channel the “Titanic” look
Remember that teeny-tiny movie Titanic that had us all pining for Leo and promising to "never let go"? Well, it's back this month...and in 3-D. And while we're not exactly ready to break out the Celine Dion albums, we are actually pretty excited to revisit the fabulous Edwardian styles. Here, a few ways to channel the era:
Fashion In 1912, jackets and dresses were cut high-collared and curvy. Though we probably won't be sporting any corsets, we do love the stiff architectural look of this Alexander McQueen coat ($2,815) or even this J. Crew version ($185), which brings to mind Rose's traveling suit. Finish the look with lace-up oxfords ($248) and the perfect piece of authentic ($5,500) or reproduction ($12) jewelry.
Home Okay, so your landlocked abode probably won't ever look like an ornate passenger ship. You can still add period elements, like glittering chandeliers (from $1,000) and intricate mirrors ($450). We're particularly taken with this damask wallpaper ($285 a roll), which looks like it's straight out of a first-class cabin.
