LJ user Padawansguide found this interesting article on costuming for the movies in the Hollywood Reporter. I will say that while I completely enjoy a good nitpick, I’m thrilled at the number of costume movies that have been coming out (I saw P&P3 and loved hating it, I’ll be first in line for Becoming Jane). Also, I do support the right and artistry of costume designers to tweak historical accuracy or even throw it out the window; although I also support my own right to nitpick them!
And speaking of movie costumes, there are a bunch of new stills from Marie Antoinette that have been released. While they don’t all look 100% spot-on authentic, they DO look fabulous and I’m really really excited. Check them out at Kirsten Candy (use Bug Me Not to bypass registration).
