Influence: Gib (John Cusack)

If there is a fashion-related job that I would kill to have, it would probably be costume designer for a film or TV show. I think this job would best combine what I love in the world:fashion, celebrities and research:P. A character (to me) on screen is not only defined by what s/he does, but also by what s/he wears.

On that note, one of the most beloved characters on film whose fashion I truly loved is Gib from the film The Sure Thing. There's nothing better than John Cusack in the 80's, and Gib is (I think) of the best slacker heroes out here. His uniform of a beat-up leather jacket, military pants and Converse sneakers defined his character, and they still look great even now. Kudos to the costume designer Durinda Wood for an awesome job on this.

Some would say that they prefer Daphne Zuniga's look on this film much better. I have to admit that her look is too preppy  for me. My sister ShoeBelle, however, would look great on the clothes Ms.Zuniga wore:) Her style is more classic. If you haven't done so, check out her blog.

Have you guys seen the film? I highly recommend it:)
