Mildred Pierce: Forties Frump? I think not
When I read over at The Painted Woman that HBO is doing a remake of Mildred Pierce, starring Kate Winslet, I was over the moon, in no small part due to the dazzling Depression-era costumes which Winslet has been snapped wearing on set. However, I've now got a little bee buzzing in my bonnet after reading a couple of articles, including the FASHION RULES post, which suggests Winslet looks "Forties Frump" in these frocks. First of all, in all but that one photo where she's wearing a blue outfit, Kate's clothes look pretty distinctly THIRTIES to me (the movie spans decades). Second of all, "frump"? Not in my world, honey!!!!!!
