A few months ago, images of Disney’s Cinderella began surfacing. Fifteen years ago, I would have been all about Cinderella’s pretty, pretty princess dresses. And they are gorgeous - which is no real surprise. Sandy Powell is responsible for some amazing costumes . . . Far From Heaven, The Wings of the Dove, Shakespeare in Love (except for the fact that I cannot get over that Oscar ridiculousness - Cate Blanchett was ROBBED!).
Speaking of Cate Blanchett - look at these dresses!! Hello, Ceil Chapman! I want/need to play dress up in this world.
There is definitely a 1940s and 1950s flavor thrown into the mix, which I love - shocker, I know!
I rarely go to the movies, but I may just have to see this visual feast on the big screen.
And I have to admit that the stepsisters costumes are pretty great, too. How did they make those cage crinolines?!
Thank you, glorious costumes, for the jolt of creative inspiration.
These pieces are pure fantasy. And the colors are brilliant! Why do I suddenly feel the need to go watch some old Technicolor movies?
