Darlings, may we make a suggestion, if you’re looking for family friendly entertainment over the holiday weekend? Rent Cinderella. If nothing else, it is absolutely stunning to look at. Why, just look at one of the dozens of ridiculously fabulous costumes worn by Cate Blanchett as the wicked stepmother:
So fabulous you could tear your hair out, amirite? Go and watch the most heterosexual drag revue we’ve ever seen. Then come back here, because starting on Friday, we’re going to do a deep dive on all the costuming, in our usual obsessive sort of way. In fact, Miss Cate’s costume above is working two very strong motifs seen throughout the film, both of which define her character and the character of her daughters in direct opposition to Cinderella and her mother. No, really. But you’ll have to wait until Friday to find out what they are. Until then, have a happy one, darlings!
