This is such a cute movie and a must-see for great vintage fashion. Starring Renee Zellweger and Ewan McGregor, Down with Love is set in 1962 New York. Feminist author, Barbara Novak's  best selling book, "Down with Love" has changed the playing field for playboy, Catcher Block. The book instructs women to replace feelings of love with chocolate and to have sex whenever (and with whoever) they please just like men do! When Catcher's many mistresses ditch him after reading this new manual for love, he goes undercover as an astronaut to try to charm his way into Barbara's heart and prove to the world of women that the author of Down With Love isn't all she's cracked up to be.

The gorgeous mod costumes of this flick were designed by Daniel Orlandi designer for movies Marilyn and Me, Rocketman, Cinderella Man, and next year's Your Cheating Heart. Down With Love is a perfect film to study for late 50's/early 60's hair and make-up as well. And what incredible sets!
