Darlings, we know we’ve been featuring shots from this location a lot, but —
Actually, we don’t have an ending for that sentence. We’ve been featuring them a lot because the cast is amazing and the costumes all tend to be interesting and/or eye-popping. No excuses needed, right?
Ri, from the neck down, is no great shakes in terms of costume design, but dear God, does that woman have a face. The hair, the earrings and the head wrap look FLAMAZING on her. Yesterday, we were a bit disappointed by the unfabulosity of her rather stereotypical Rasta Girl getup, but we wonder if that wasn’t some sort of plot-induced disquise for whatever scheme they’re pulling off.
Obviously, Sarah’s not serving up fierceness here, but look at how well you get a sense of her character just from how she’s dressed and styled. It’s the same with Cate Blanchett’s character and Helena Bonham Carter’s. The costume design here isn’t just eye-popping, it’s extremely well done in service to the idea of building a character from the ground up. We feel like we know who these people are without them uttering a word. That’s the mark of good costume design.
