Style Icon: Gregory Peck

A Gentleman Named Mr Peck

For anyone who knows me well, you have probably heard me talk of my obsession with the story To Kill a Mockingbird by Harper Lee. I read the novel when I was in school and this led me to the film with the wonderful Gregory Peck. I loved his character Atticus Finch, and he was brilliant in this movie. Even to this day you can find numerous copies of the book in my home. If I see one with a different cover I don’t have already, I add it to my little collection.

So, my love of Gregory Peck in To Kill A Mockingbird really catapulted him to a favourite of mine. Someone I looked to for inspiration and us such, had to see more of his films and well, just know more in general. Roman Holiday (1953), kept my interest with his role alongside Audrey Hepburn. He had a way of always looking so distinguished and gentlemanly. Not just in his films but in everything I found of him. How wonderful he was in 1947 in The Paradine Case and also Gentleman’s Agreement. I could keep going however, I’ll leave you with some images that show why I appreciate looking back at the style of Mr Gregory Peck.
