I recently (finally) got round to reading The Help; the book and the film have been on my list for a year or two but I always prefer to read books before seeing the film adaptation. Of course, I loved it so I watched the movie last weekend and I thought I’d share some of my favourite costumes with you – you know I love 1960s fashion!
Costume Designer Sharen Davis described the wardrobe as “probably the most colour I’ve ever used in my life”. She spent around $15,000 on accessories and made 50 outfits herself using fabric she’d sourced from vintage/charity shops [source]. One of my favourite vintage finds is Emma Stone’s gorgeous cats-eye spectacles: there are some incredibly similar, and so equally gorgeous, options by Prada glasses and Bolle do a great modern take on vintage styles (with cute tortoiseshell and pastel-coloured frames).
The other characters may have thought her ‘white trash’ but I loved Celia Foote/Jessica Chastain’s costumes. Jessica Chastain reportedly ate melted soy ice cream to gain weight for the role [source] and the curvy look definitely works for her, she looks fabulous! Have you read/seen The Help? Did you love it too? For more gorgeous glasses be sure to check out SmartBuyGlasses.co.uk!Click to buy The Help at the Book Depository or Amazon. Source of images. All © DreamWorks II Distribution Co.
