Best Movie Wardrobes, Part 1
It wouldn’t be surprising if everyone got a bit of their fashion inspiration from video media such as film and TV shows so today, I thought I’d share with you some of the movies I thought came with the best wardrobes.
Of course anyone who’s going to do one of these lists is going to include Titanic, but this is one of the first films that got me interested in historic fashion. All of Kate Winslet’s outfits, and more, are absolutely beautiful. I wish it were more socially accepted to wear outfits like these out; but in the meantime, if anyone finds a decent mid- or tea-length version of these dresses, please let me know!
And yes, this movie is so great but makes me cry immensely.
The Help (2011)
A portion of my wardrobe is inspired by the mid-20th century so it’s no surprise that The Help made it to this short list. So many of these outfits have such wonderful cuts and are perfect for those summer days when you just want to be outside. (It’s so cold here today and just looking at this film’s screenshots make me wish it were summer.)
Thank goodness this film is so visually appealing; it makes up for all the bitches we have to listen to.
Fuck me gently with a chainsaw. I’m an amateur film junkie but the role of costumes in this film aren’t particularly obscure. But aside from the genius that got put into incorporating the wardrobe into the plot – which you can read about here – their ’80s fashion is pretty killer (pun intended). I know I’ve channeled Veronica Sawyer on several days before.
The wardrobe alone has a lot going on this movie and a tonne of outfits but from the hats to the skirts to the accessories to the attitudes, there’s a lot to love about it. Just paint anything in this movie black and you have me sold.
Can we also get a round of applause for Heather C’s and D’s hair?
I have more but these are three that really stood out to me, so the rest are saved for later. Do you agree with my choices?
Until next week ★
