What was your favourite costume within the movie and why?
It is change into more durable to resolve the extra I stay with the movie! We made Blonde in 2019 and now each costume has its personal particular place in my reminiscence and expertise. It was a extremely laborious movie to make. We had so little time and to see it on the display now may be very satisfying! The white pleated costume that William Travilla initially designed in Seven Yr Itch has this unbelievable slow-motion shot that actually reveals off all of our laborious work.
That costume had been re-created so many occasions and we have all seen it strolling down Hollywood Boulevard, at Halloween events, and printed on mugs—that costume blowing up within the subway wind is in all places! The costume’s fashionable incarnations have gotten a little bit flimsy and simple and never significantly particular. The unbelievable Jose Bello who was at Western Costume was the mastermind that laid out the pleating sample and unraveled all of the issues that weren’t proper with all these re-creations. I actually needed the skirt to be additional beneficiant so it could have a dramatic luxurious liquid quantity that might overtake Ana when the wind blew!
I nonetheless cannot consider the re-creation for Some Like It Scorching! While you see the stills facet by facet our model and the unique! It felt like that as we have been capturing—Andrew all the time had the unique picture proper subsequent to the monitor. I like that nude souffle and silk chiffon beaded costume that Orry-Kelly initially designed. Do you know the costume has a little bit cut-out purple coronary heart on the rear? And sure it is included! Rory and his workforce at Invoice Hargate did a beautiful job on this one. I had padding put on this costume to offer Ana’s determine extra weight. It was the one time I padded her.
Lydia Jakubowski was our unbelievable full-time cutter fitter who made so many issues together with her marriage ceremony costume and the on a regular basis uniforms of Capri pants-those outfits are so particular too. Typically it is the straightforward issues that accomplish that a lot of the emotional heavy lifting.
