Age Of Adaline ~ Blake Lively’s Costumes

We just went to the Corinna B’s World Age Of Adaline screening.
It was fabulous – the perfect movie for a group of fashion forward, glam loving, makeup and hair loving girls to win VIP passes to!

Blake Lively was of course, gorgeous. The story tracks Adaline’s (Lively’s) life across 100+ years during which a scientific anomaly makes her impervious to aging, keeping her perpetually 29 years old.

The film mostly takes place in 2014, with flashbacks throughout the 20th century. For a story like this to work you are reliant on costuming. The wardrobe not only has to reflect each period in the story, but also has to marry the contemporary designs with flavors from Adaline’s coming of age time (the 1940’s). It would be easy for the fashions to eclipse the story, but instead under the direction of  Academy Award winning costumer Angus Strathie, the wardrobe skillfully keeps us believing Adaline’s trajectory through the 20th century. The mix of contemporary with vintage is fabulous. Adaline’s clothes steer clear of trendy, at all times maintaining classic lines and the good taste of a lady who hit her stride circa 1940.

Make sure you go see Age Of Adaline, opening in theaters Friday April 24th, but in the meantime check out some of the costuming, courtesy of Entertainment Weekly

This custom Gucci dress appears twice in the film, both times on New Year’s Eve, but once in 1945 and then again in 2014.

    Hello exceptional blog! Does running a blog similar to this take
    a large amount of work? I have very little understanding of computer programming but
    I had been hoping to start my own blog in the near future.
    Anyway, should you have any ideas or techniques for new blog owners please share.
    I know this is off subject however I simply wanted to ask.
    Thanks!
