Are you out of ideas to dress up in the morning ? Why not draw your inspiration from the greatest stars ?

More than a star, James Dean is a hollywoodian movies legend. He was fond of beautiful cars and driving fast, specialized in playing hypersensitive guys, he became a myth and the symbol of a whole generation.

James Dean plays an unloved son in the Elia Kazan’s movie, inspired by the novel by John Steinbeck, a performance which earned him an Oscar.

We do not guarantee the Oscar, but you certainly will be smart and comfortable with light-coloured trousers and a beige sweater worn with a classic white shirt (photo above). Dishevelled hair obligatory !

The last James Dean movie, a real blockbuster with two of the biggest stars of the fifties : Elizabeth Taylor and Rock Hudson !

James Dean plays a cowboy who begins rich as he discovers an oil well and stands in the way of a dynasty of landowners.

To get his cowboy look, there is nothing like the total look denim shirt + jeans, used, of course.

Do not forget that you are looking for petroleum on an arid soil.
