In Honor of the 10th Anniversary of #TheNotebook
All you hopeless romantics out there, grab a box of tissues and some Dove chocolates as we re-live one of the most treasured love stories of all times, The Notebook.
Today marks the 10th anniversary of the movie based off of Nicholas Sparks’ beloved novel. The movie starred Rachel McAdams as the confused and lovesick teenager, Allie, and Ryan Gosling as the cute, but poor local boy, Noah. Allie and Noah’s love story was written in the notebook by Allie when she was diagnosed with Alzheimer’s disease years prior so Noah could read it to her everyday and pray that Allie would remember for even just a short while. I’m starting to tear up just thinking about it.
In honor of the 10th anniversary of the Notebook, I have compiled some of our favorite scenes from the movie and the adorable outfits each of the characters were wearing in them to re-live the beautiful story.
- Noah and Allie Dancing in the Street:
This was the beginning of Allie and Noah’s love story. In this scene, Allie is dressed very modestly, as was the expectation of the time period, in a long blue patterned dress, red cardigan and small-heeled shoes. Noah is seen sporting his beloved tweed flat hat, that gets plenty of screen time itself, a plaid, relaxed button down and grey trousers.
- “If You’re a Bird, I’m a Bird:”
In this scene, Noah and Allie are at the beach diving fearlessly into their summer love. Pun absolutely intended. Allie is wearing a vintage patterned red bathing suit with a large flower head band as her accessory of choice. Noah is wearing my all time favorite on a man, the plain white tee-shirt and khakis. And, of course, his adorable hat is in this one, too.
I know this scene broke everyone’s heart. Lon is such a good man and he deserves the best, but everyone knows, Allie deserved Noah and vice versa. In this scene, Lon proposes to Allie at a small get-together in front of her parents and others at the venue. Allie looked absolutely ravishing in her beautiful white sleeveless dress and white flower in her hair. And, of course, Lon looked flawless as always in his black and white suit and tie.
- Allie Visits Noah Before the Wedding:
This is one of the most adorable scenes, because of the look on Noah Calhoun’s face when he sees Allie for the first time in years. You can see it in his eyes, he is still as in love with her as he was when they were kids. Both Allie and Noah are much older now and Allie’s fashion sense has stepped up its game a little since the last time Noah saw her. In this scene, Allie is wearing a form fitting oxblood dress with black leather gloves and, once again, a black flower headband in her hair. Her hair is curled in a flawless vintage form and her make-up stuns Noah for good reason.
Possibly the most popular and well-known scene in the entire movie is the scene where Noah and Allie are on the lake at the end of the movie where they passionately kiss in the rain after years of being apart. Allie is dressed in the famous light blue button up dress with lace on the sleeves. She is wearing a beautiful pearl necklace, bright red lipstick and a perfectly coiffed up-do. Noah is looking absolutely scrumptious in his white button up shirt and grey slacks. His hair is messy and unkept, but for some reason, it works for him.
I hope this article brings up some much needed nostalgia and we’d love to know what some of your favorite scenes are if we didn’t capture them here.
