Movie Fashion You Want
St. Trinian's head girl outfit is possibly the most affordable movie costume I've swooned for. A reproduction of Liz Taylor's deceptively simple looking white dress from Cat on a Hot Tin Roof can be purchased for nearly $500 on Etsy.
I also love nearly everything non-burlesque (and even a little of the burlesque) from Moulin Rouge. An exact replica of the climactic white show dress would run me at least $5000. No doubt the burgundy dress and embroidered bolero pictured would be nearly as much.
I don't even want to imagine what Charlize Theron's delicious Snow White and the Huntsmans gowns, with their to-the-floor beading and adornment with wood and bone, would cost. (That move is clothing porn with slow-motion detail shots during the credits. Clothing porn. The costumes are absolutely worth Kristen "Blank Stare" Stewart's acting. With that math, Chris Hemsworth is a sexy bonus.)
What movie costume do you covet?
