“With Satine, we needed to make it clear that this is the most beautiful woman in Paris. Admittedly, Nicole is already very beautiful, but she may not be everybody’s idea of ideal beauty, so we needed to make it clear with the costumes’ signs and symbols that that’s who she was. We looked to Hollywood’s glamour heroines like Marlene Dietrich, Marilyn Monroe, Greta Garbo - all sexually available to the men in the movies but emotionally very unavailable, and we looked at how that manifested itself in their clothing. Their wardrobes tended to be very graphic, unfussy, dramatic in their colour choice. We then used that.” - Catherine Martin(costume designer for Moulin Rouge!)
Okay @honnleathlion I started thinking about my “all y’all don’t gotta be white” Pride and Prejudice cast here’s what I came up with! Please excuse the shitty format of the post I have no idea how to make gifsets or this would have been pretty for you <3
Octavia Spencer as Mrs. Bennet
Laurence Fishburn as Mr. Bennet
Sonequa Martin-Green as Jane Bennet
Nathalie Emmanuel as Elizabeth Bennet
