If you haven’t seen Scarface, you have missed a very important film in cinematic history and pop culture. The crime drama is based on a Cuban who craves the American dream at any cost. His name is Tony Montana (played by Al Pacino) and on his way to the top he desires Elvira Hancock, his boss’s girlfriend. Portrayed by the young actress Michelle Pfeiffer, Elvira was the classic drug lord girlfriend. Once Tony Montana got rid of his boss, he had ownership of all he had, including Elvira. It was a small role, but playing Elvira Hancock catapulted Michelle Pfeiffer’s career! The controversial character was a heavy cocaine user and lover of the finer things, which made for some great fashion moments in the film. Elvira is skinny, flat chested and fashionable! She is ‘It Girl’ quality, but pretty messed up emotionally. Elvira likes solids in white, red and blue. She can be seen wearing elegant, sexy nightwear, low cut slip dresses, broad hats, and suits.
Elvira is ready for the club! This look could totally work this weekend girls. Right now, if you’ve been watching the red carpet action from The Golden Globes or The SAG Awards, you will know that side boob exposure & low cut necklines are all the rage. Here Elvira has the body for it (and probably a lot of double sided tape to keep things in order). We DO NOT suggest this for any girl bigger than a small B cup. The sequin fabric is still very much relevant right now and you should make sure you have a simple sequin dress in your wardrobe. It WILL be worn, trust us.
Occupation? Trophy Wife
Place of Birth? Baltimore, Maryland, USA
Remember, she IS fictional
Elvira doesn’t go out to work in an office, so her day wear consisted of robes and nightgowns. Silky, fancy nightgowns were all the rage in the 1970s-1980s. Right now many women wear vintage nightwear pieces as day wear under blazers or sweaters. The pieces are so pretty you want EVERYONE to see it!
Rihanna knows the power of the Elvira Hancock look! The popstar channeled the drug lord wife in a disco styled silk dress. Don’t you love silk? It moves so well and it’s great for dancing, another favorite pastime for Elvira who was often seen at the clubs getting on down. Take note of the colors Blue and Green! Verra hot for SS13!
Elvira in white. This was a stand out outfit for Elvira as she shot down Tony Montana’s advances. Tony: Would you kiss me if I wore the hat? Elvira: No. There is something special about full white suits, whether it be a pair of trousers or skirt like the one here on Elvira. Add the large sunglasses and a broad hat and it’s Move Star quality. Worn with confidence, this outfit can win over anyone!
In the club or by the pool, Elvira had the right pieces in place. Check out those sunglasses on Elvira! Perfect for the pool gazing. Another winning element to Elvira’s style is that hair cut! The cut, with some slight moderations, is still wildly popular! Its good girl chic!
“How dare you talk to me like that! What makes you so much better than me? What do you do? Kill people? Deal your drugs? Real contribution to human history Tony! What makes you think you can be a father? You don’t even know how to be a good husband!” – Elvira Hancock
