Dress like Clem: Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind
In 2004, Kate Winslet made waves as the tangerine-haired bohemian Clementine Kruczynski in Michel Gondry’s “Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind.” Winslet beautifully captured a kind of idiosyncratic sadness unique to this sci-fi romance.
Clementine’s style, too, was idiosyncratic. Her hair evolves from blue (“It’s called Blue Ruin. The color. Snappy name, huh?”) to orange (or “Tangerine,” as Jim Carrey’s character Joel refers to it). Her distinctive wardrobe seems to be composed of thrift store and flea market finds. She is boldly and unapologetically herself, a philosophy that is reflected in her style. It’s no wonder that she is an icon of mid-2000s film and fashion.
The best way to capture Clem’s look is to pick up unique, vintage items. But should you desire a more literal adaptation, these are some pieces that are close to Clementine’s “Eternal Sunshine” style.
