Where's Winona? ...

Remember this Winona Ryder for Marc Jacobs photo? I bumped into it the other day and couldn't help but think ... where's Winona? I miss her out there in movie-land, don't you? I wish someone would write an epic role for her in a great movie so she can make her comeback already. When I worked at Prada she was one of my regular clients. She was awesome. She'd phone ahead of time to let me know she was coming so I could pull things for her. And sometimes while shopping she'd order take out and I'd reserve the giant dressing room so she and her friend could eat in peace–high fashion camp out I suppose. One of my fave Winona films is of course Reality Bites, but long before that I loved her in Lucas. Do you have a Winona favorite movie or moment?

And for the record, she was a stellar client. I would even send new pieces from the collection to her house sometimes and any item she wanted, she'd keep (I had her card on file). And whatever she didn't want she'd send back ... every, single time.

I love Winona! I wanted to be her ...and this is going to be embarrassing but true, I even love the movie "How to make an American Quilt" there, I said it! She's great!

I have to say, my favorite Winona is from Heathers & Mermaids. I miss 80s Winona!! I love this ad by the way...it's so wonderful. I like it much better than the most recent MJ ads where the models appear to be in Beetlejuice...

Wow, what an amazing experience with such a star. I was just thinking about her yesterday and I wondered if she was acting or directing in indie films and that's why I hadn't heard about her. I loved her in Little Woman. My favorite.

Glad you had a great experience with her, I cannot get shoplifter out of my head! Not really a fan anymore...but I guess I should give her another chance if someone else is willing to....I do wonder what she is doing??

Funny you ask. My friend and her are BFFs. They just got back from Chicago. She was working on a film with Vince Vaughn and Queen Latifah.

This is going to reveal my inner geek, but she was just in the Star Trek movie a few years ago, playing a MOTHER. Weird.

I'll always want to be best friends with Winona and Janeane Garofalo in Reality Bites. (Who didn't want to be their roommate in the "Maxi Pad"?)

Ditto to all of this! I love her in everything. Except for that lame movie with Richard Gere.
