Unless you reside beneath a rock or haven’t been on-line prior to now month, the extremely anticipated movie Don’t Worry Darling has been in your radar a method or one other.
The psychological thriller set within the ’50s, which first premiered at Venice Film Festival, follows a pair residing in a utopian city referred to as Victory. Upon first look, the pristine suburban setting is ideal—or seemingly so. When a couple of of its inhabitants begin to query their idyllic life and the Victory Project, nobody appears to have the ability to clarify. The fabulous and good Florence Pugh steals the present in additional methods than one as Alice Chambers, the inquisitive suburban housewife to Jack Chambers, who’s performed by Harry Styles.
The movie encompasses a star-studded solid and boasts an intensely thrilling story line, however above all else, it’s visually gorgeous. I left the movie desirous to re-create each look, and I used to be mesmerized by the tailor-made fits, the eye to element, the retro prints, the colourful units, and the quintessential imprint that the ’50s and ’60s have left on vogue eternally.
In order to convey such a controlled-yet-alluring society of perfection, it’s important to usher in the very best of the very best, which is why director and actress Olivia Wilde—who stars as Bunny within the movie—referred to as in three-time Oscar-nominated costume designer Arianne Phillips. Prior to Don’t Worry Darling, Phillips labored her magic on iconic movies akin to Walk the Line, Girl, Interrupted (my private favourite), and Once Upon a Time in Hollywood.
I had the privilege of chatting with Phillips about her inventive course of on DWD, from drawing visible references of the ’50s to creating the search for every character. Only she will be able to make a patriarchy-driven but disturbingly good society look as ravishing because it did via her impeccable designs. Not to be dramatic, however the seems had been fairly iconic, and I’m virtually sure that these costumes shall be talked about for many years to return. Oh, and don’t fear, darlings. There are not any spoilers forward.
