W.E. Costume Sneak Peeks

Okay, so some are skeptical about the actual plot, thematic depth, etc., of the upcoming movie, W.E. (2011) with Madonna at the helm, but I'm sorrrry, from a fashion-obsessed blogger's perspective, the costumes I've seen so far=chicer than chic. That zigzag patterened suit that looks like it fell from my Lucien Lelong book (though I think Simpson was dressed more by Mainbocher and Schiaparelli)??? EEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE........ Oh sorry, I had a fashion-induced apoplectic fit there.  For more on W.E. visit Enchanted Serenity's blog!

Oh thank you, I can't get enough of Wallis - she was amazing. I think she behaved with great grace in impossible circumstances, and always, always looked immaculate at such a super stylish time (well, if you were rich, of course!). As for the film, I don't know what to expect, but it'll be worth seeing for the costumes, cars, interiors etc. so I don't much care.

what a lovely hat!

Wow! She looks just like my great grandma in the 40's! I can't describe how many not-so-good movies I've watched over and over because the fashion was amazing. There's nothing wrong with that.

I have a biography on her, I better start reading it! I like to know a bit before watching films, you know? I know I will pay little attention to more than the clothing. Eeeek!

glad to share! ;)

I've got a Wallis bio among my pile of books I'm taking on my trip. Should be interesting reading, hey, Lauren?

Brittany: your great grandmother must have been a stylish lady. As Mrs. Exeter notes, Wally was the epitome of immaculate grace and style!

Gorgeous! Wish I could be working on that set!

Pfft, who needs plot and depth with costumes like that? (I'm all for sometimes watching terrible films - not saying this will be of course! - just for the visuals...which includes handsome men ;])
