Wallis, Wally, and W./E.

Please do stop by Clothes on Film to read the article I wrote about the costumes in W./E., which I am officially obsessed with. It’s an overview of how the clothes worn by Andrea Riseborough as Wallis Simpson and Abbie Cornish as Wally Winthrop actually mirror each other, even though Wallis lives in England in the 1930s and Wally lives in New York in 1998.
Consider these photos of Andrea and Abbie as they make their way to the set for filming a preview of the visual treat that awaits you when you see the movie. The DVD for the movie comes out on May 1 and I will definitely be buying it!
I have to get out both my red lipstick and red nail polish after seeing the above photo of Andrea Riseborough. And isn’t that shade of blue on her just beyond gorgeous?
Abbie Cornish as Wally Winthrop. She’s wearing the dynamite open-weave cardigan over a white dress, a look I loved in the film. She must be making her way to the set in this picture because she was not wearing a backpack in the movie! Photo by Bauer Griffin.
