Big screen

never mind the daily drama of celebrities publicly flailing about, personally lost without a script. their over-exposed foibles (and other parts) are not properly lit, edited, or costumed. am i keen on examining a celebrity's movements in my mortal world?
keep moving folks, nothing to see here.
now on the other hand if i could enter the magical world that is cinema...

which film, based primarily on the wardrobe, would you pick to wander around in?

The Thin Man.

Or, any female lead in a Fred Astaire film.

Or, any Joan Crawford film.

(Warning, I may be back with others.)

Breakfast at Tiffany's or Roman Holiday. The clothing is drool worthy.

Can't choose just one!
Practical...Two for the Road
Fantasy....The 5th Element

Gwyneth Paltrow's 'Sliding Doors' wardrobe! All that Calvin Klein in his sleek yet casual best.

'Music and Lyrics' was a yawn of a movie, but Drew Berrymore had great clothes too.

Key Largo -- Lauren Bacall was decked out.

Barry Lyndon. Marisa Berenson looked stunning.

Perfect timing, I just randomly happened upon showcase of film costumes.

Hero (aka Ying Xiong)
Alexander (horrendous piece of crap, but I loved what Angelina wore)
Pirates of the Caribbean (3 for Keira, 2 for Orlando, Jack's nuances overall)
And I did love Natalie Portman's wedding dress in Star Wars 2. And Darth Vader in general.

but more realistic, Charlotte Gainsbourg in Lemming perhaps.

and Dorian & Mina in LXG. Okay, I'm done.

I would be in "High Society" with Grace Kelly, (I would be her best friend and steal all her clothes because that's the sort of best friend I am). The movie is full of petticoats, kitten heels, swimming caps and wraps, evening gowns and pure elegance. And don't get me started on the houses and interiors!

To Catch a Thief-Grace Kelly
Philadelphia Story-Katherine Hepburn
The Graduate-Ann Bancroft: MEOW!
and the obvious: Breakfast at Tiffanys
In my opinion, no woman has ever looked better than Audrey did in that movie.

Breakfast at Tiffany's.

Easy question!

Amalie, without a doubt. Amazing movie, incredible style!

oh come ON, people.

AUNTIE MAME (the only version, the original with rosalind russell). if you haven't seen this, you haven't SEEN costuming. the woman changes her hair color, her style of dressing, and her entire apartment (beekman place, new york city) every single time she marries again or changes something. and the beading and layering and colors . . . oh lord, just go rent your new favorite movie and call me in the morning.

and really? breakfast at tiffany's? why not just say "givenchy" and be done with it. chic, yes, but so little daring. even the thin man was more daring and inventive (the hats!) or the thomas crowne affair (renee in that white fur coat int he back of the limo) or in the mood for love (a different cheongsam for every single scene, literally a hundred different looks in a film, all sixties styled and yearning)

did i mention auntie mame?
