Gemma Critchley: What’s your room number?

Today’s post is nothing more than an indulgent nod to one of my favourite films of recent years, <a title=”marc jacobs for louis vuitton wes anderson the darjeeling limited hotel chevalier jason schwartzman natalie portman” href=”http://beatifnik.wordpress.com/2011/10/11/paper-cranes/&#8221; target=”_blank”>The Darjeeling Limited</a> by Wes Anderson. Or, more specifically Hotel Chevalier, the short film from the start of the aforementioned Darjeeling Limited.

I love this for so many reasons.

1. The song, ‘Where do you go to my lovely’ by Peter Sarstedt.

2. The line, “Whatever happens in the end, I don’t want to lose you as a friend” and the response: “I promise, I will never be your friend. No matter what. Never.”

3. The styling, not least for the awesome yellow robe from Hotel Chevalier or Natalie Portman’s beautiful grey coat. There’s also super-stylish moustachioed Jason Schwarztman and one of my ultimate wish-list items, the madly coveted <a title=”marc jacobs for louis vuitton wes anderson the darjeeling limited hotel chevalier jason schwartzman natalie portman” href=”http://beatifnik.wordpress.com/2011/02/06/oneaday-36-relocation-relocation-relocation/&#8221; target=”_blank”>Marc Jacobs for Louis Vuitton luggage</a> set.

I could go on and on, but I won’t. Any other Wes Anderson fans reading this post? Did you like The Darjeeling Limited? Which is your favourite Wes Anderson film?
