Clothes on Film Chapter for Hollywood Costume book

31 October 2012 5:36 AM, PDT | Clothes on Film | See recent Clothes on Film news »

Forgive the self-promotion as we draw your attention to Clothes on Film’s essay in the book Hollywood Costume edited by Deborah Nadoolman Landis, published to accompany her exhibition at the V&A.

Even without the involvement of Clothes on Film editor Chris Laverty, we would still be recommending this publication wholeheartedly. Firstly, it is absolutely beautiful; the kind of text that university students will actually want to pore over for their coursework. That is not to say it is purely educational, but emphasis is strongly on the nitty-gritty use and conservation of costume. What gives the book a novel twist is Landis recruiting actual Hollywood costume designers to discuss their work, including Jeffrey Kurland (Inception), Kristin M. Burke (Seeking a Friend for the End of the World), Joanna Johnston (War Horse) and even a conversation with the legendary Ann Roth (Midnight Cowboy).

Hollywood Costume is available now in all »

Hollywood Costume Exhibition Opens at the V&A in London

25 October 2012 5:56 PM, PDT | Clothes on Film | See recent Clothes on Film news »

In development since 2007 and nurtured for at least 20 years by curator Deborah Nadoolman Landis since her days as president of the Costume Designers’ Guild (Cdg), the exhibition ‘Hollywood Costume’ finally opens at the V&A museum. This is the costume exhibition to end all costume exhibitions; everything from Judy Garland’s gingham pinafore and ruby slippers from The Wizard of Oz, to Keira Knightley’s burgundy silk gown from Anna Karenina, to Robert De Niro’s ‘King Kong Company’ jacket, check shirt, jeans and even boots from Taxi Driver. Hollywood Costume is a rush; an awe-inspiring journey through the meaning and history of contemporary, period and mo-cap costume design utilising projections, interviews, lectures from A-list actors, installations and even a specially commissioned score.

So what to expect when you finally beat the queues and stroll in the front doors? We shall not give too much away because surprise is part of the enjoyment, »

Hollywood Costume – dressing the part

12 October 2012 4:01 PM, PDT | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

From Dorothy's shoes to Christian Bale's batsuit, costume is a crucial, although often unnoticed, part of film. Bee Wilson takes a tour of Hollywood's wardrobe department at the V&A's starry new exhibition

Carole Lombard "was just a tootsie when she came to Paramount," a movie insider once remarked. What transformed Lombard into a 1930s screwball goddess, the most highly paid in Hollywood in her day, were her gorgeous costumes, flowing, ornate and bias-cut. Designer Travis Banton "saw things in her even she didn't know she had". It was said of Banton that he could take a girl to lunch and instantly see what qualities he needed to accentuate. In Lombard's case, he weighted the gowns to drag backwards, giving her the elongated stature of a star. One of Lombard's most dazzling Banton dresses can be seen in the forthcoming Hollywood Costume show at the V&A. It is »

'Political Animals' keeps Sigourney Weaver in control

22 July 2012 12:00 PM, PDT | Zap2It - From Inside the Box | See recent Zap2It - From Inside the Box news »

Costume designer Ann Roth made a rare foray into TV to dress Sigourney Weaver's character, Secretary of State Elaine Barrish, in the new USA Network series "Political Animals."

"I was only asked to do Sigourney's clothes, and that was pretty much at the last minute," she tells Zap2it. "We are very old good friends, and she is an actress as opposed to a movie star. I work in the movies and do Broadway shows. I have done maybe three TV shows. It is not my medium."

One of Roth's challenges was to design clothes that spanned several years in which Elaine goes from first lady to presidential candidate to secretary of state.

"We approached it by inventing the clothes that we think this woman had," she says. "She's probably a Harvard graduate, but she's very educated and very poised and a very smart woman beloved by America. ... We »

Political Animals TV Review – USA

16 July 2012 10:25 AM, PDT | | See recent AreYouScreening news »

USA network’s six-part series, Political Animals, has just about all the pieces you could hope for. Creator Greg Berlanti is perhaps slightly out of his element, as most will know him from things like Dawson’s Creek, Everwood, and short-lived efforts, Eli Stone and No Ordinary Family (well, and possibly Green Lantern and Wrath of the Titans). It isn’t a resume that leads one to suspect that a politically-charged drama unfolding in the White House is a clear next step, but he’s put together television that people have managed to enjoy.

Now throw in Sigourney Weaver as the prime star, and a nice collection of supporters (including Ellen Burstyn, the always interesting Carla Gugino, and the charismatic James Wolk, just to name a few), and add the fact that it’s a drama-filled walk through a White House with an ex-First Lady serving as Secretary of State, »

Safe – review

5 May 2012 4:03 PM, PDT | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

In this ultra-violent thriller our own Jason Statham, the British national diving star turned screen tough guy, protects a sweet little Chinese mathematical genius from Russian and Chinese mafiosi as well as bent cops doing the bidding of a corrupt mayor of New York. The names of some of America's finest talents (among them producers Lawrence Bender and Kevin Spacey, costume designer Ann Roth and cinematographer Stefan Czapsky) appear on the credits. Which only goes to show you can't make silk Speedos out of thick ears.

USA Series ‘Political Animals’ Sets July Premiere Date, Adds Adrian Pasdar To Cast

2 May 2012 11:00 AM, PDT | Deadline TV | See recent Deadline TV news »

Greg Berlanti and Laurence Mark’s USA series Political Animals has rounded out its cast with the addition of Adrian Pasdar as a recurring to appear in every episode. The six-episode series, from Warner Horizon, is slated to debut on July 15 and air in the Sunday 10 Pm slot. Political Animals stars Sigourney Weaver as Elaine, a former First Lady and presidential candidate who tries to keep her family together while simultaneously dealing with crises of the State Department and a hungry DC journalist (Carla Gugino) who is bent on destroying her. Pasdar will play President Paul Garcetti, who defeated Elaine in the presidential primary and then appointed her as his Secretary of State. A smart man who uses every resource at his disposal to his advantage, he deftly employs Elaine’s popularity to deflect unwanted attention. The series also co-stars James Wolk, Sebastian Stan, Brittany Ishibashi with Ellen Burstyn and Ciarán Hinds. »

Nicole Kidman 4 Film Collection (Cold Mountain, Dogville, The Others, Rabbit Hole)

Nicole Kidman 4 Film Collection (Cold Mountain, Dogville, The Others, Rabbit Hole)

DVD Reviews

Cold Mountain (2003)

Directed by: Anthony Minghella

Cast: Nicole Kidman, Jude Law, Renée Zellweger

Running Time: 2 hrs 34 mins

Rating: R

Due Out: April 3, 2012

Plot: As the Civil War nears its end, a Confederate soldier (Law) makes the long journey home to reunite with the woman he loves (Kidman).

Who’S It For? Anyone who appreciates an old-fashioned romance, horrific depictions of war, or rich production values should find something to like about Cold Mountain. Though not ideal if you want a lightweight love story, it’s worth watching once.


Cold Mountain is an occasionally great film, but the best word to describe it is “grueling.” Some of that feeling is appropriate, such as in the brutal opening war scene; unfortunately, more is due to it being overlong. While there are a handful of great moments, this isn »

It’s been all go with award nomination announcements for costume design over the past two weeks. Here is our round-up of the big three: BAFTA, Cdg and Oscar.

First up the BAFTA (British Academy of Film & Television Arts) Film Awards:

The ArtistMark Bridges

Jane Eyre – Michael O’Connor

My Week with MarilynJill Taylor

Tinker, Tailor, Solider, Spy – Jacqueline Durran

Perhaps the most surprising nomination, even though it shouldn’t be, is Jacqueline Durran for Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy. Overruling the costumers’ chapter vote for Anonymous (Lisy Christl), general voters chose Tinker, Tailor instead – and with good reason. Critic Guy Lodge goes into detail about the film’s costumes in this article, so we’ll not tread on his toes. One »
