If you left the theater after seeing This is 40 and didn’t have a major girl crush on Leslie Mann there might be something wrong with you.
She’s witty. She’s fearless. She’s got great hair. And, seriously, look at her bod! If there’s anything Leslie’s second turn as Debbie — the perfectionist wife to Paul Rudd’s free-spirited Pete — proved it’s that 40 might actually be something us women should embrace instead of reject.
Especially if it comes with such an cool, eclectic wardrobe. “Debbie has a very classic, California style with a bit of a bohemian flair,” This is 40 Costume Designer Leesa Evans explained to me, adding that the character’s unique fashion sense is a direct reflection of her day job. “She owns a clothing and accessories store in the film, so she has quite a casual confidence in her style.”
Check out some of Debbie’s greatest hits from the film below. Big thank you to Leesa for helping me track these down!
