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

But a chance encounter with charismatic philanthropist Ellis Jones [Michiel Huisman] reignites her passion for life and romance. When a weekend with his parents [Harrison Ford and Kathy Baker] threatens to uncover the truth, Adaline makes a decision that will change her life forever.
