Midnight in Paris sees Owen Wilson rocking ten shades of brown, while Diane Keaton's Annie Hall is forever married to mannish tailoring. Not only is the man who made NHS-style shades his own responsible for some the finest style lessons in film, Woody Allen's key looks are so this season

Wearing brown is Good

Woody Allen's oeuvre is so intrinsically linked to 1970s Manhattan that it's hard to know which of them actually pioneered a wardrobe of earth tones and sold it to us as boho dressing for the preppy intelligensia. We can, if we wish, trace a slurry-coloured line directly from the beige slacks and rusty roll necks of Play It Again, Sam through to the copper corduroy and fawn-flecked tweeds of Annie Hall; nestle gently in some dun-coloured two-pieces in Manhattan Murder Mystery, and pop-up in a neatly-pressed chino pocket in his latest offering, Midnight in Paris. »
