Starring the adorable Amy Adams and incredibly talented Frances McDormand, how can you not love "Miss Pettigrew Lives For A Day"? It's the story of a jobless, homeless former housekeeper in 1930's London who changes the life of a romantically confused socialite when she works as her social secretary for a day.

With fabulous hats, scandalous encounters and sharp wit, Miss Pettigrew is sure to tickle your fashion taste buds. The amazing and fabulous Michael O'Connor worked as the costume designer for this film. You may have adored some of his other incredible designs in The Duchess. He also worked on costumes in Emma, Quills and Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets. Enjoy, chickadees!
