Fashion in Films: Bridesmaids


     The month of May usually signals the start of a lot of summer box office hits. And after hearing so many good praises about the movie Bridesmaids, which has been in theaters for over two weeks, I finally watched it and I must say that I'm more than pleased and not just with the comedic performances. Saying that the movie was funny doesn't do it justice. It was hilarious. But what really surprised me was how beautiful and fitting the wardrobe was for each of the six leading women. The costume designer, Leesa Evans, along with the help of her co-costume designer Christine Wada, did an amazing job in portraying each of the different character's story through their wardrobe selections from the dresses down to the jewelry, handbags, and shoes. 













  

Annie - Kristen Wiig 
as the Maid of Honor at her all time low, but still has a lot going for her 
- tailored blazers, short dresses, and rompers 
- lots of colorful prints and jewelry 
- sky high heels that showcases her sex appeal





Lillian -- Maya Rudolf
as the happy bride to be 
- feminine and romantic dresses

- oversized golf shirts and hats
- manly trousers with sandals 
- but with a hint of feminism with headbands and pearl necklace

- very colorful and youthful pieces with a lot of preppy and feminine accents

Rita -- Wendy McLendon-Covey
as the depraved housewife with three kids 
- lots of sexy and body conscious dresses
