Virginia Film Festival Style: Feeling French

Linnea White

From Cannes to Charlottesville, from fashion to film, the season of the film festival is an exciting one. And it's that time of year in Charlottesville! The Virginia Film Festival begins tomorrow, November 3, and runs through Sunday, November 6, and brings the best of international, domestic, and local films to the theaters of Cville every year. And Darling is partnering with the festival to bring you the best of Virginia's film festival style. Giving a nod to the renown French film festival, and to the many black & white and historical film screenings happening at Vinegar Hill Theater, I styled this adorable VFF Intern, Lucie Lyon, in a black & white, European-inspired ensemble. It all began with the j'adore sweater, and quickly became a modern, chic look with classic elements - like the red lip and locket-look necklace, declaring our love for Virginia and this wonderful festival. The mod mini skirt, silk scarf, geometric clutch, and platform booties give this look a modern edge, perfect for the cultured film go-ers of today.

Darling adores the Virginia Film Festival! How will you get styled for the weekend festivities? Leave a comment or show us your #vffstyle on Instagram, and win two ticket vouchers, available for pick up at the shop!

We love collaborating with locals, especially when the locals are a part of The Virginia Film Festival. This year, Darling is teaming up with the VFF for not one, but TWO special giveaways! The first giveaway took place last weekend at the newly opened Violet Crown theater on the downtown mall, and the house of the VFF headquarters. We're excited to style our lucky winner this Thursday, November 5, for a movie makeover and night on the red carpet. The second giveaway starts tomorrow, Wednesday, November 4, and ends Saturday, November 7 at noon. Post a picture of your Virginia Film Festival-inspired style and use the hashtag #vffstyle for a chance to win two tickets to the Late Night Wrap Party on Saturday, November 7 at Main Street Arena. Must be 21+ to enter. Limited to one entry (unique photo tagged with #vffstyle) a day.

To get the #vffstyle giveaway started, we styled the festival's Publicity Intern, Lucie Lyon, in an adorable, autumnal outfit. See how she rocks her VFF t-shirt with the perfect Fall pieces, and get on Instagram to show your own #vffstyle for a chance to win!
