Fashion on films

As many of you already know, I write Style me if you can, a blog about costume design, fashion on films, and news about the latest releases. It’s a topic that I love, so here you have the latest posts of Style me if you can in case you want to stop by. If you have to watch at least one movie every week, you are addicted to several TV series, and know who Milena Canonero is, I’m sure you’ll like the blog.

You can follow Style me if you can on Bloglovin’ and you won’t miss any new post.

The two faces of January
A thriller with Kirsten Dunst, Viggo Mortensen and Oscar Isaac. It’s 1962 and a couple arrive to Athens, where they meet an American tourist guide that scams the tourists. (Read more)

Saint Laurent
First photo of the movie about Yves Saint Laurent. Gaspard Ulliel is certainly the perfect choice for the part. It will be directed by Bertrand Bonello and the writer is Thomas Bidegain (read more)

Vanity Fair Hollywood covers · 1995 – 2013
These issues usually feature a large group of actors and actresses photographed by Annie Leibovitz, an expert in group photos. Have a look-back into all of the Vanity Fair Hollywood Issues. From 2013 to 1995 (view here)

Silver Linings Playbook
My two favourite scenes from the film (view here)

Out of Africa
Out of Africa is one of my favourite films, and I objectively think that it is a true masterpiece. It was directed by Sydney Pollack in 1985. Meryl Streep is amazing playing Karen, a Baroness from Denmark that moves to a farm in Kenia. And well, Robert Redford is just brilliant. The costume design is by Milena Canonero, maybe today’s most important wardrobe designer. Her filmography includes Chariots of fire, A clockwork Orange, or Marie Antoinette. She’s been awarded with three Oscars (continue reading)

Interview with Sonia Grande, costume designer of Midnight in Paris
Sonia Grande is one of the most important costume designers today, and I had the pleasure of meeting her a few days ago. Her filmography includes Midnight in Paris, a treasure thanks to the 20′s looks; Vicky Cristina Barcelona, with the unforgettable Maria Elena played by Penélope Cruz; the dark ambient in The Others, whose wardrobe was designed completely by Sonia from scratch; the romantic comedy It’s complicated with Meryl Streep; and other highly awarded films such as The sea inside, Talk to her or The girl of your dreams, for which she received a Goya Award for best costume design (read the interview)

Rosemary’s Baby
Rosemary’s baby costume design is one of the most amazing ones in cinema. The 60′s dresses collection, the classic nightgowns, and the elegant coats make this movie a real treasure for wardrobe design lovers. Anthea Sylbert was the costume designer (read more)

A Dangerous Method
A Dangerous Method tells the story of the relationship between Carl Jung (Michael Fassbender) and Sigmund Freud (Viggo Mortensen) and the perspectives they had on psychoanalysis, through Sabina Spielren (Keira Knightley). The costume design is fantastic. It was designed by Denise Cronenberg, David’s sister. She exhaustively studied the period of the film (from 1904 to 1913) (continue reading)

Les Misérables
The movie, as many of you know, takes place between 1815 and 1832, during the June Rebellion in Paris.  I have the feeling that Les Misérables will get the Best Costume Design award. The other nominees are Anna Karenina, Snowhite and the Huntsman, Mirror, Mirror, and Lincoln. I really want Les Misérables to win, because the costume design is really good, and it’s by Paco Delgado, a Spanish costume designer (read more)

The Notebook
The Notebook is the classic example of a romantic movie that you can’t avoid re-watching on a blue day, to make things worse (just like any other Nicholas Sparks story). Ryan Gosling and Rachel McAdams play the typical impossible couple (she’s rich, he’s poor), that fight against difficulties. The story begins in 1940, and Karyn Wagner, costume designer (she’s done The Green Mile too), used original vintage pieces and clothes from suppliers in LA that reminded her of the southern style (read more)

Catch me if you can, the power of clothes and appearance
The costume designer is Mary Zophres, who also made Gangster Squad. The main character (Leonardo di Caprio) has the ability to impersonate all kinds of people and enter different worlds with the help of clothing (continue reading)

  17. Me encantan tus posts en Style me if you can, he compartido varios en la página de facebook de mi blog, porque siempre pones cosas geniales. Me gustaron mucho el de Viggo Mortensen y Kirsten Dunst, el de A Dangerous Method (Keira favorita hasta en las premieres de la película, en el Festival de Venecia llevó un Valentino impecable), el de Midnight in Paris, y el de El Dario de Noah. Oh y Leo genial en Catch me if you can. No había visto lo de Gaspard Ulliel, y la verdad es que está increíble, parece el propio Yves. Estoy segura de que habrá hecho un gran trabajo porque es muy buen actor y muy elegante.

    un beso,
