With Halloween approaching, who can help but think about costumes? In my house, this is a huge topic of discussion, especially for my daughter. She plots and plans and browses the Internet for months, deciding what she will wear at the end of October that will win her the most candy. (And yes, I have to usually get involved, just to make sure nothing is hanging out that shouldn't be.)
Costumes in the movies are just as important...like my daughter, the director and costume designer put great care into their choices in order to wow the audience and ensure authenticity, and maybe snag another Oscar for their troubles. The Bumbles have asked us which movies have made the biggest impression with their costumes. Now of course, everyone knows that the best costumes EVER were the ones in Gone With the Wind. Wearing one's own curtains have never been so gorgeous! But because the Bumbles took that choice for their own, here are a few more of mine:
The Titanic - For a twerp, Leo sure cleans up nice, doesn't he? And just about everything Kate wore in this movie looked stunning.
Grease - Sandy looked pretty cute in her poodle skirts, but those black leather pants are killer.
Moulin Rouge - everything about this movie is rich and extravagant (and SO romantic). But then again, Nicole Kidman would look good in a potato sack.
Fiddler on the Roof - we aren't talking glamorous here, but I adore the clothes of these Russian Jews. Yes, Tevia does look a little stinky, but he wears it well. I love the attire at the wedding (although I couldn't find a good picture) and am annoyingly enchanted by the dancing Russian soldiers.
Breakfast at Tiffany's - Audrey Hepburn is the definition of beauty and grace. The look that they chose for her in this movie will never go out of style. I'm pretty sure not many people could pull off this look as well as she did.
I have this nagging feeling I've missed some really important ones, but I've been distracted this morning (as you can tell, I'm posting a bit late today!). What have I forgotten???
