Fashion Film on the Lawn Series

Tuesday 7th of March to Wednesday 8th of March
Film has the capacity to make actresses not only stars, but fashion icons too. From Hepburn and Kelly to Roberts and Knightley, some of Hollywood's most successful stars owe a lot to their on-screen style. But what of the stories behind these inspiring and award-winning wardrobes? Whether you're a cinephile or fashion fan, come along to two special fashion film nights featuring iconic films of yesteryear: Grease and The Devil Wears Prada.

Olivia Newton John's development in Grease is one of film's most iconic transformations - her character's wholesome 1950s full skirts, fitted sweaters and cheerleader pom-poms were replaced by killer red mules and a skin-tight black catsuit for the infamous final scene. (FASHION FACT: When we say skin-tight, we mean it - Newton John was famously sewn in to the outfit on-set.) Register here for Grease.

The next night, be thrilled (and terrified) by Meryl Streep as a high fashion magazine editor in The Devil Wears Prada. (FASHION FACT: The costume budget for this film was over $1 million.) Register here for Prada.

Both sessions start at 7.00pm and registration is required for these free events. BYO picnic, rug, and the essentials such as a light jacket and possibly mozzie spray. Popcorn will be available for purchase on the night, and the lawn area at Joondalup Library is the perfect spot to enjoy a balmy evening and films under the canopy of the stars and plane trees.

When: Tuesday 7th March (Grease) and Wednesday 8th March (Devil Wears Prada) Movies start at 7pm
Where: Grassed area, out the front of the Joondalup Library, 102 Boas Avenue Joondalup
FREE but registration required
