The movie was very Woody Allen, and not at the same time. The cast was quite a BIG mix that I would not have expected in a Woody Allen film, especially Owen Wilson. The music hit perfectly on Allen's style, but also how you look back at Paris thinking that music was playing. The costumes were fantastic and the reason I am writing this in the first place, my second obsession: 1920s fashion. Big surprise: I'm talking about clothes.
The era: 1920s/2010. The 2010 era: not so exciting in the costume department. The 20s was heaven. Well, my heaven. It has always been my favorite decade for fashion. Coco Chanel, willowy figures, slinky shift dresses, and the first time a woman's arms were shown in public. The hats, the sequins, the fringe were all there. I fell in love with the three dresses worn by the "lovely" Marion Cotillard. Her costumes grab your attention as much as her smoldering eyes. Well, maybe.
