Don’t Worry Darling’s Fashion Designer of Movies
Unless you’ve been living under a rock or haven’t been online for the past month, the series is highly anticipated Don’t worry, baby was on your radar in one way or another.
Psychological thriller set in the 50s, which premiered at the Venice Film Festival for the first time, follows a couple living in a utopian town called Victory.. At first glance, the pristine suburban setting is perfect — or so it seems. When some of its inhabitants began to question their idyllic lives and the Victory Project, no one seemed to be able to explain it. The wonderful and brilliant Florence Pugh steals the show in more ways than one as Alice Chambers, a curious suburban housewife with Jack Chambers, who is played by Harry Styles.
The film has an all-star cast and boasts a thrilling storyline, but most of all, it’s visually impressive. I left the film with the desire to recreate every look, and I was mesmerized by the tailored suits, attention to detail, vintage textures, colorful outfits and The quintessential mark that the ’50s and ’60s left on fashion forever. .
To convey such a perfectly controlled yet glamorous society, you have to bring out the best, that’s why the director and actress Olivia Wilde – who plays Bunny in the film – called three-time Oscar-nominated costume designer Arianne Phillips. Before Don’t worry, babyPhillips has worked his magic on iconic films like Walk in the street, Girl, interrupted (my personal favorite), and Once upon a time in Hollywood.
I had the honor to chat with Phillips about her creative process on DWD, from drawing ’50s visual references to creating skins for each character. Only she can make a perfect patriarchal-driven but unsettling society look as ravishingly beautiful as it once did through her flawless designs. Not too dramatic, but the look is pretty iconic, and I’m almost certain these outfits will be talked about for decades to come. Oh, and don’t worry, honey. No spoilers ahead.
