I love....Colleen Atwood

Ha, all my outfits have been pretty lame lately. Haven't been feeling too fab, and there's really no point fancying-up for three hours of oil painting every other day, right? So, here's my first attempt at a "feature"...or at least a fill-in. :'D

You've probably guessed that I'm into art, and that I like clothes...so, combining these two interests into one fantastic celebrity is...Colleen Atwood!

She has such an amazing sense of design, and a taste for theatrics which I find completely inspiring. Whenever there's a movie featuring her beautiful designs, I can't keep myself away from the theater.
She's worked on everything from Memoirs of a Geisha to Sweeney Todd to Little Women, and I feel her designs lend such an air of uniqueness to a movie which few other costume designers can match.


Design for Mrs. Lovett (Sweeney Todd)

  8. She has worked on quite an impressive array of films. Little Women if my favorite by far- the outfits are just so very perfect. I would wear any one of them!
