The only thing Scarface‘s Tony Montana wanted as much as the coca empire throne was the adoration of chic ice queen Elvira Hancock (played by Michelle Pfeiffer). Her white skirt suit, sequin-covered party dresses, teardrop-shaped diamond earrings, short blond bob, and glittery makeup epitomized early ’80s glamour. Her evening frocks captured the sexiness of Miami nightlife (from plunging necklines to halter silhouettes) and the era’s over-the-top showiness (gold sequin details, dramatic eye makeup), and her daytime looks (like the aforementioned white skirt suit) underscored her status and wealth.
Have a look at some of the pieces that would appeal to those smitten with Elvira Hancock’s sense of style.
Paul & Joe Viviana Sequined Mini Dress (pictured above), $610. Visit NetAPorter.com
It was the early ’80s, and the disco era had come to a close, but the flash and sizzle of that time was carrying over into the new, rock-led age, as evident in the sequin-covered dresses women donned on their evenings out. With its asymmetrical neckline and short hemline, Paul & Joe’s Viviana dress would’ve allowed Elvira to show off her tanned stems.
Badgley Mischka Elani Metallic Sandal, $191. Visit Endless.com
A huge fan of the leisurely life, Elvira sorts don’t spend too much time on their feet, preferring to tavel in luxury automobiles. Their toes, then, are always freshly polished and peeking out of the finest sandals, such as these Eleni strappy sandals from Badgley Mischka, which feature a metallic bow that practically scream, “I’m a gift ready to be opened.”
Fekkai Golden Shimmer GelÃ©e Mist, $20. Visit Fekkai.com
With her slightly asymmetrical blond bob and slightly parted bangs, Elvira’s hairstyle set a golden standard. The Fekkai Golden Shimmer GelÃ©e Mist would have allowed her to keep her hair in place during nights out dancing, while also adding some golden sparkle to her tresses.
NYX Cosmetics The Make-Up Box, $15. Visit NYXcosmetics.com
From contoured, winged eyeshadow to glossy lips and sculpted cheekbones, Elvira knew how to play up her features and create an indelible expression of personal style using makeup. Bonafide beauty junkies like Elvira, then, would appreciate NYX’s The Make-Up Box, which features 16 eyeshadow hues, 3 blush shades, 4 lip color hues, and 2 applicator brushes.
