Fashion and Film Friday: DeLovely

Cole Porter Delovely movie 1930s fashion

Starring Kevin Kline and Ashley Judd, DeLovely is the enchanting and bizarre musical biography of composer and songwriter, Cole Porter. Porter's work stretched from the early 1920's to late 1950's, making DeLovely a great inspiration to vintage fashion lovers.

The costumes were designed by the very talented Janty Yates who also designed costumes for Kingdom of Heaven, Gladiator and this year's up-coming film, Robin Hood.  The soundtrack features some of the most popular music of the day. Delovely is a heartbreakingly beautiful and unconventional love story.

The hairstyles in DeLovely are absolutely flawless, which is no surprise because it was all designed by Simon Thompson, hair designer of Titanic and Emma.  To replicate a perfect 1930s look, check out 1930s makeup guides from Glamor Daze.
