Famous Boudoir Film Scenes
With so many styles of lingerie out there, it can be challenging to pin down your perfect boudoir look. You already know that choosing pieces that flatter your body and express your personal style are important factors, but what about finding inspiration in art, books, or film? The following Hollywood stars have appeared in movie scenes that capture stylish, unique, or unforgettably sexy looks. Next time you’re in a lingerie rut, look to these movies for inspiration.
“Cell Block Tango” from Chicago
In this musical number, Catherine Zeta-Jones leads a troupe of lingerie-clad prisoners in a song about the crimes that landed them in jail. It is an unforgettable scene with lots of slamming heels, straps and garters, and a creative use of a single red silk scarf.
Eva Mendes in The Women
In this scene, Mendes’ character shops for lingerie at a high-end boutique. She emerges from her dressing room wearing a lacy jade and black corset, sheer stockings, and heels, prancing down the hallway and checking herself out in the mirror much to the dismay to one snotty saleswoman.
Natalie Portman in Closer
In this film, Portman plays an intelligent stripper named Alice. She is the unattainable love interest of a character played by Clive Owen. In one particularly sexy scene, Portman dances for him in a private room wearing a shiny lilac bustier with pink fringe, a garter, and heels. Like Owen’s character, you’ll find it difficult to keep your eyes off her.
Halle Berry in SwordFish
In Swordfish, Berry plays the tough but sexy girlfriend of a spy played by John Travolta. In one scene, Halle appears in a lacy black bra and thong paired with only a single accessory - a loaded gun, much to Hugh Jackman’s character’s surprise!
