Ask us to list our favourite romantic comedies and you get a long, comprehensive offering of the classics. Notting Hill. Love, Actually. When Harry Met Sally. Sleepless In Seattle. Never Been Kissed. Pretty Woman. Two Weeks’ Notice. We get misty-eyed just thinking about them. But somewhere near the top of our ranking is, undoubtedly, How To Lose A Guy In 10 Days.

The 2003 film starred Kate Hudson and Matthew McConaughey as two singles who were tricking each other into having a relationship as part of two separate scams. Kate was trying to get rid of Matthew, while Matthew was trying to keep hold of Kate. Chaos ensued and, of course, they fell in love in the process. But now, Kate has weighed in on where they would be now, after they sped off into the distance at the end of the film.

'I’ve always thought about what Matthew [McConaughey] and I's characters would be now, if we were still together,' Kate told Elle.

'It’s actually probably a good amount of time [that has passed] to make a movie about it,' she said. Aside from this very exciting suggestion that we might be getting a sequel – or that the Oscar-nominated actress is, at least, open to the idea, she also has a theory as to how her character (Andy) and Matthew’s (Ben) would be doing now.

'We probably would have gotten married with kids. We're probably miserable right now!'

True, the path of love rarely runs smooth. Would they, indeed, be miserable? Could they find a way to bring romance back into their lives? How To Save A Marriage in 10 Days? We’ll get writing the script now…

1. The Working Girl Pencil Skirt

Have you ever seen a white shirt and grey pencil skirt look so good? Sure Kate/Andie has that slightly static, very 2003 I'm-still-using-my-water-filled-Babyliss-straighteners hair, but she WORKS IT. Is it the fit of her corporate crony attire that takes it from meh to magnifique? The giant Prada tote and Starbucks to-go cup she accessorises with? Or, just the fact that this is Kate Hudson and she'd look great in a Bloomingdales Big Brown Bag?

2. The Bringing Sexy Back Dress

From the front, Andie's on-the-pull frock was a perfectly cute wraparound halter neck. It's so inoffensive it's practically work appropriate. But, when she turns to walk out of Ben's apartment, we see that Andie is indeed BRINGING SEXY BACK. A whole three years before Justin Timberlake did. Because Andie Anderson is a trendsetter, people.

3. The Very Rachel Green Knicks Jersey

Was there a rule in the early Noughties that all female, New York-based TV and movie characters had to rep the Knicks? Because Andie Anderson looks all kinds of Rachel Green in her basketball jersey and, later in How To Lose A Guy, also sports a black Knicks hoodie. We're not complaining; she looks great, and it's nice to see a girlie character being represented as a sports fan rather than being dragged along to a game by her boyfriend. Those tickets were hers, remember, even if she did flirt with a Sports Illustrated editor to get them…

4. The Susie Homemaker Prom Dresses

You can tell when Andie's up to her best boyfriend-losing tricks when she looks like she's come straight out of a Laura Ashley catalogue. From telling waiters that Ben called her fat, to invading his weekly boys' night, her most angelic outfits contrast with her most devilish behaviour. Now where did we leave that John Lewis gift card?

5. The Daniella Westbrook Homage

In 2002, Daniella Westbrook was papped wearing a Burberry check skirt, carrying a Burberry-clad baby and pushing a Burberry pram. In 2003, Andie Anderson wore a Burberry check scarf, carried a Burberry-clad dog and pushed Ben Barry into a Burberry shirt. Coincidence? We think not – but Andie definitely wore it best. That scarf is crying out for a place in our wardrobe.

6. The Celine Dion T-shirt

Do we even need to explain this one? Celine is Queen. Top marks if you can get your other half, best bud or work wife to twin with you.

7. The Calvin Klein Ad

Is there anything that says chilled, cool, sexy movie girl more than relaxed hair, a plain white vest and some good jeans? Answer: yes, stick her on a motorbike. This is the point in How To Lose A Guy In 10 Days when the writers are trying to tell us Andie and Ben are actually in ~lUrVe~, so now there's no need for try-hard looks, because everyone is just so comfortable with each other. Andie Anderson does 90s Calvin Klein-ad style well.

8. The Pièce De Résistance

She was trying to lose the guy, he was trying to woo the girl, but in one slip of yellow fabric Benjamin Barry fell head over heels. Remember when Andie appeared on the steps, Ben said, 'You're beautiful,' and you got chills? Such is the power of this yellow dress, which is so good it made the movie poster AND had us thinking we could pull off something similar at our high school prom. We, like Ben and Andie's intentions, were sadly mistaken.
