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.
Enjoy a tasty chocolate walking tour of the Perth CBD.
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.
