BIG SCREEN BANDITS

Lot’s of things inspired our new bold, brave, spirited, and rebellious Cowgirl Bandit line. Sometimes, that means we turn to the silver screen and just like you, we like to gather the girls and have a “movie night.” Check out three films with Bandidas who helped inspire our Les Gauchos Bolero Hat, Frida Tank and more.


1. BANDIDAS

Bandidas

Released: February 3, 2006

Femme Fatales: Penelope Cruz and Salma Hayek

Penelope and Salma start out as catty adversaries from opposite sides of the tracks but evolve into bank-robbing besties. Bonus: Dwight Yoakum!


2. THE MASK OF ZORRO

The Mask of Zorro

Released: July 17, 1998

Femme Fatale: Catherine Zeta-Jones

Yes, we know this movie revolves around the smoldering Antonio Banderas, but Jones was a pistol-packing, foil wielding badass, too.


3. FRIDA

FRIDA

Released: October 25, 2002

Femme Fatale: Salma Hayek

Frida Kahlo may not have packed a pistol but she kicked down the doors of convention with a paintbrush and as far as we’re concerned is the baddest bandida of them all. Salma was nominated for an Oscar for her role, and the movie should be on your “must see” list.

These movies looks great, but the clothing inspired by them even more fabulous! Absolutely stunning all round!

I have seen all three of these movies with the “bad” band ideas. I love how DD gets their inspiration. They look, they see, they create!!!!!! That is a real talent. Love to all who work to make us gals happy and loaded down with beautiful clothes, jewelry, boots, and hats!!!!
