So what I thought I would do a serious of blogs documenting my favourite use of fashion within film, because I do think it's worth a mention. The first film I have chosen in 'Sucker Punch' the 2011 movie that follows the story of a gorgeous young girl who, after being institutionalized by her abusive stepfather, copes by retreating into an alternate reality as a coping strategy - during which, she conjures up a daring escape plan.
|The girls were well prepared for the 70% off sale|
|Emily Browning as Babydoll and Vanessa Hudgens as Blondie|
|Abbie Cornish as Sweet Pea and Jamie Chung as Amber|
|Jena Malone as Rocket and Carla Gugino as Madam Gorski|
Anyway, onto the little girl losts of the dancing girls - this is where Make Up Designer Rosalina Da Silva, who has also knocked my socks off with the looks she created in Tron Legacy an Underworld, really shone - the faces were mostly fresh an dewy until it came to the eyes that featured lots of smudged eyeliner, as if the girls had recently been crying. It added to the air of desperation the girls clearly felt.
So what do you guys think of the fashion/costumes in Sucker Punch?
Are there any movies that you think are worthy of a Fashion in Film Feature? The best suggestions I will feature and of course provide credit where it is due.
In case you haven't seen this wonderfully weird movie, I leave you guys with the official trailer...Enjoy!
