I am starting a series called ‘Film Fashion Style Alternative’ (soon to be abbreviated) where I will come up with cruelty-free/ ethical outfits inspired by costumes pulled from outfits worn by a specific character in movies. The character’s ensemble is one major point in making or breaking the character so deciding on the right pieces is essential. A lot of Hollywood costume designers/ stylists like to create outfits for characters from clothes made by high-end fashion designers; and sadly, the majority of couture designers would not think twice about giving up animal fibers for their vision and art form.

For the first one of this series, I am taking on the film, ‘The Revenant’. If this is still on your to-watch list, it’s a definite must-see for you thrill seekers and avid movie-goers. Every part of the movie was so beautifully sewn together and it was quite the experience. Reveling in this gorgeous film as a whole is a warranted affection, but I’m here to talk specifically Hugh’s signature look. Majority of the film, Leonardo DiCaprio who plays Hugh Grant, has bear fur draped around himself as his coat to protect him through the harsh and resilient winter. As my blog is absolutely not a space that condones wearing fur of any kind, I wanted to recreate Hugh’s outfit 100% cruelty-free. Although this is not a look many of us pull inspiration from, I’ve found some pretty stylish furry bear fur-free jackets that I want to share. I don’t know about you, but I’m pretty stoked on the idea of looking like a bear and the fantasy of being Leo’s fierce imaginary counterpart in the Revenant.
