Let us be honest, moms do it all. They work hard, nurture, teach, comfort and sometimes save the world. With Mother’s Day around the corner, we are visiting some of our favorite moms in tv and film. Whether you are social distanced far from your mom or just cannot escape her, sit down with some of these recommended movies and shows and give her a gift from our hand-selected items from these looks inspired by iconic moms.
Rainbow Johnson (Tracee Ellis Ross) – Black-Ish (2014 – Present)
Beatrix “The Bride” Kiddo (Uma Thurman) – Kill Bill Vol.1 &2 (2003, 2004)
The Bride is a prime example of what happens when you harm a mother’s child, even if that child is yet to be born. She spends two films violently disposing of anyone that conspired against her and anyone that stands by their side. Befitting a woman with the codename Black Mamba. Her iconic jumpsuit and Asics sneakers are reproduced in perfect work from home fashion with Rhude Warm Up Shorts, UFU Ad t-shirt, Onitsuka Tiger Corsair X, and matching Carhartt WIP accessories.
Sarah Connor (Linda Hamilton) – The Terminator 2 (1991)
While The Bride in Kill Bill is scary from virtually beginning to end, Sarah Connor is the ultimate example of character development. She goes from Damsel in Distress in the first film in The Terminator franchise to a rugged warrior and fugitive that poses as much of a danger to her foes as they do to her. Nike Sportswear Woven Cargo Pants, Stussy Deluxe Multi-Function Vest, and the Sunday Somewhere Wilder Shades make for a perfectly apocalyptic mom fit. The Nike Vapormax 360 is the perfect sneaker for taking on androids whether you are running from, or running after, them.
Rachel Marron (Whitney Houston) – The Bodyguard (1992)
Whitney Houston’s role opposite Kevin Costner was an extension of herself. A successful music star, single-mother and Oscar nominee. Hopefully the stalker and murderer parts of the film where just added for plot. Houston pulls off a variety of looks throughout the movie, but a favorite is in the scene in which she asks her bodyguard on a date in a timeless workout fit. This is recreated with Jordan Tights and Body Con Crop Top, both from Jordan Brand’s first women’s clothing collection. Worn under a Drole De Monsieur Slogan Cropped Jacket and with white Rhude Stripe Socks and Air Jordan 4 “Rasta,” this is a great fit for essentials shopping or going on a walk with a special someone.
Marge Simpson (voiced by Julie Kavner) – The Simpsons (1989 – Present)
The matriarch of television’s longest-running sitcom family, Marge Simpson is the glue that held The Simpsons together. In true sitcom fashion, she is the moralistic voice to her Homer’s constant antics. An underrated character, Marge has one of the most iconic looks in television history and the Nike Sportswear NSW Fleece Skirt and Shortsleeve Crop-Top bring that look to life in a wearable and fun way. The Nike Air Max Verona “Guava Ice” accents the fit well without going overboard. Together it is the perfect fit for a mom whether she is at home or the mayor, a model, author, teacher, crime scene investigator, body builder and so on. Your probably did not realize Marge has successfully held that many jobs. Yep, she has range.
