Recently, stuck in bed with the flu, FFF decided it was time to revisit some old classics. The Way We Were was the first one popped from its case. Why? How long have you got? Robert Redford and Barbra Streisand for a start. His megawatt smile and her long red lacquered nails. Him in white trunks. Her with her newly ironed hair. It’s Central Park. It’s the Malibu beach house with waves that hit the door step. It’s their dazzling chemistry and it’s that song. It was 1973 and it’s the way Bob and Babs were.
All American classics here: think Zabar’s Chicken Soup (a.k.a. Jewish Penicillin, perfect for that flu) followed by Bubby’s Sour Cherry Pie and a Root Beer Float — you’ll need comfort food and a box of tissues for this movie.
The look: Katie
Work you inner-K-K-Katie. Chunky knits, flare jeans and wedges. Giant graduated lense sunnies, a cute halterneck bathing suit and a touch of patchwork… anywhere! Perfect hair, make up and tappable red talons and you’re Babs-alicious!

The look: Hubbell
Think preppy-beachside chic (we’re merging two different decades here). Said white trunks mandatory. Aviator sunglasses, cardigan, fabulous camel leather bag, all-American chinos, crisp tennis whites and a pair of loafers - tick tick TICK!
