Dressing Jolie


This in Vogue today:

THE Roaring Twenties are back in a big way, style-wise, and nowhere are they rendered more beautifully than in The Changeling, the new film starring Angelina Jolie hitting cinemas later this month - and that's all down to costume designer Deborah Hopper.

Having worked on such productions as Flags of Our Fathers and Letters from Iwo Jima, Hopper has extensive experience at seeking out rare outfits to fit an unconventional brief but even she admits that costuming the 1,000 men, women and children involved in The Changeling proved tricky.

"It's always a challenge to try to find vintage clothes. Especially with the earlier periods, because these fabrics simply don't last; they fall apart," she explains. "So we went everywhere around this country and then some. We did come up with enough clothes, but barely."

The most wow-inducing looks go, of course, to Jolie's lead, Christine Collins - something that the star herself insists proved invaluable to playing the role.

"The wardrobe choices are really the first steps toward Christine," Jolie says. "There is something about the style of clothes of the Twenties that is very sweet. They make you feel a little softer and just so delicate, hidden behind it all. It helped me very much."

I normally start the day off by reading your blog, and what i love most is how personal you are. I feel like you are speaking to each and every reader and not a giant audience. I think this has to do with being that secret vintage find that nobody knows how great it is until they discover it. Its like knowing Gladiators were cool and in style even when everyone was thinking "wtf?".
The point is, what you do is great, and with talent like yours, Angelina WILL find you one day! But enjoy being that little vintage secret, because it makes it that much better when someone discovers all your treasures!
