Natasha Richardson as Elizabeth James, mother of the Lindsay Lohan twins in the 1998 remake of The Parent Trap, is my first real “fashion memory.” I was five and, to me, she embodied the ideal version of a lady. Her love of beige, elegant handbags, perfumed vanity, ability to speak French for her fashion business…they all made me love her so much. To this day, nearly 20 years later, she remains to me a fashion icon and the epitome of 90s elegance.
Oh, and this scene.
