70s Fashion Inspired by American Hustle1970s fashion is hitting the big screen once again with David O. Russell’s “American Hustle”. The film stars Christian Bale, Amy Adams, Jennifer Lawrence and Bradley Cooper. Set in the seventies, it tells the story of a conman forced to work with a wild FBI agent. Already nominated for seven Golden Globes, we’re sure it’s amazing film but we can not help looking at the fashion! The movie even features vintage 70s looks from Gucci, Halston and more. Check out some style inspiration from the film below:
