Good Looks: The Talented Mr. Ripley

The Talented Mr. Ripley always gets me in the mood for the sun and sea and for dressing the part in flowing shirts, sockless loafers & chino every which way.  Jude Law takes it away with his linen-clad sprezzatura while Matt Damon's Tom Ripley brings the prep.  Gwyneth Paltrow combines classic American style with laid-back European panache with a tomboy flair.  The late Phillip Seymour Hoffman captures the smarmy Freddie Miles with his ticket pocket, Clubmasters and a red Alfa Romeo Guiletta Spider convertible.
