Moonrise Kingdom Inspires Retro Fashion: Laura Bishop’s Style

Filmmaker Wes Anderson is back this summer after a successful debut at Cannes of his new film Moonrise Kingdom. While the plots of his various films tend to include affecting yet charming stories, it is the style of the characters and sets that leaves us most mesmerized… and, rest assured, Moonrise Kingdom will deliver when we get to sit down for it in theatres after its wide release (the film is in limited release currently, in NYC and LA). Get a sneak peak at the style of several characters in this film as we lead you ‘from the set to the street’ with unique suggestions for your wardrobe, inspired by Scout Master Ward (Ed Norton), the mother and wife Laura Bishop (Frances McDormand), the husband and father Walt Bishop (Bill Murray), and the daughter/star-crossed lover Suzy (Kara Heyward).


Wear it with ballet flats, heels or even flat sneakers – these dresses can accomplish about as much fashion-wise as Mom does for the whole family in the span of a day. Always a winning cut, the sundress keeps up with the fast-paced chick while she runs around on errands (or goes on a manhunt for the Boy Scout who ran away with her daughter). Check out our fave styles below!
