I'll admit that I'm rather excited about the upcoming October release of Secretariat (this will be no surprise to my family, which was plagued by horse movie screenings throughout my childhood). While I'll be happy to indulge in some equus eye candy, I'm also pretty taken with Diane Lane's wardrobe in the film. Lane portrays housewife and mother Penny Chenery, who helped to create the first Triple Crown winner in 25 years. And while the early '70s never struck me as a time of particular elegance, Lane's wardrobe throughout the film is just that. I was particularly inspired by her party dress in this scene, and set about creating a space that reflected her love of Thoroughbreds as well as her thoughtful wardrobe.
Of course, any prize-winning household needs to decorate with a trophy or two: I'd choose this Yellow Owl Workshop Trophy ($60) to start my collection, and add a racehorse to the living room with the Thomaspaul Thoroughbred Throw ($350). To shop the rest of the look, just click on each product.
