Wishing You a Glamorous 2013

James D’Arcy and Andrea Riseborough in W./E.

This image was one of my favorites from the movie W./E., with its romance, glamour, and metallic sweep of the gown worn by Andrea Riseborough as Wallis. Arianne Phillips, the Oscar-nominated costume designer of the film, said in an interview she gave to Lucky magazine in March 2012 that the gown was a Vionnet made of gold lamé. It is sublime!

I wish you all the romance and glamour (and gold lamé) of this picture for 2013!

Happy New Year!

I liked this movie - I watched it because my favorite girl, Katie McGrath, was in it, but ended up loving it so much. It's so v isual and pretty!

Happy New Year, dear Jill! I loved your blog in 2012 and I trust I will enjoy it just as much in the coming 12 months. Thanks for all the wonderful posts! This picture is an absolute stunner. Have to admit I still haven't seen the movie... ;-) Greetings to the other side of the ocean xo :-)

I got the W./E. video for Christmas. I watched, expecting to hate the film but love the clothes. The clothes were fab, but I really liked the film as well. Happy New Year!

Just found your blog via over 50 feeling 40... hello! What a gorgeous photo! Son't you just wish there were dances like that nowadays, so we could dress in those fabulous flowing gowns? I love reading fashion blogs and am happy to have discovered yours. Cheers! Anne
