8 Lessons on Showstopping French Style from Disney’s Dumbo

Eva Green has showstopping French style as Colette Marchant in Dumbo

There’s something wonderfully enchanting about Tim Burton’s take on Disney’s Dumbo, the classic that you’re sure to fall in love with all over again. In Australian cinemas now,we’re getting to see some of our most well-loved characters in a whole new light.

Of course, baby Dumbo appears as adorable as ever but we can’t take our eyes off Eva Green! Cutting a dazzling figure as French trapeze artist Colette Marchant, Eva has us wanting to perform some of her brazen beauty stunts.

Eva’s 1920s glamour look is perfectly suited to cooler nights out as we step into autumn. Think after-hours visits to Melbourne’s art galleries or chasing thrills at Sydney’s Luna Park. We’ve broken down the elements of Eva’s glamorous Parisienne cabaret style so you can add to your own bag of tricks.

  1. Plunge into a deep red lip

    To get that 20s glam, pick a matte lipstick shade in a very deep red or plumb. Focus your attention on creating a very defined cupid’s bow and a thick lower lip.

  2. Showcase a smokey eye

    For a subtle look, blend out your chosen eyeshadow from the lash line – and then blend some more! Don’t be afraid to experiment with different shades of grey, brown or even try experimenting with some turquoise or jewel tones.

  3. Strike a strong brow

    Follow the natural shape of your brows with a taupe eyeshadow or brow pomade to wow the crowds with bold, defined brows.

  4. Embrace your winter glow

    As the summer fades, so will your tan. But that’s ok! A winter glow works well to pull off this sophisticated party style which is all about making your features the main attraction.

  5. Add a feather-light hint of pink blush

    Leave the bronzer in your make up bag and whip out a flattering shade of pink blush instead. Sweep gently over just the apples of your cheeks to warm up your face.

  6. Steal the show with costume jewellery

    Green’s glamorous brilliance proves that when it comes to accessorising, sometimes more can be more!

  7. Play with a firey new hair hue

    Take inspiration from the blazing autumn colours to give your hair a seasonal update.  From a bright red colour to a warmer tone, you can be as daring as you please.

  8. Add a feathered headpiece for an unforgettable finale

    Enchanté! Make a fabulous first impression with feathered headwear, which gives a gorgeous nod to the 1920s and to Dumbo, an old favourite made new.
