The Age of Adeline - drolling over fashion

I've watched recently ''The Age of Adeline'' movie and the movie is great,i recommend it,but better than the movie is the fashion!

Blake Lively who is Adeline,the main character,looked so good in every scene she was in - she is a beautifle young lady,but when you dress her up as they did - wow

The story is quite interesting too,the movie follows Adeline from the time she had car accident in wich she became ''immortal'',for her time has stoped,and when i say time has stoped,i mean the bitch lives 60+ years after car accident and looks like she did at the time of accident,her doughter becomes old grannie while she is still looking like she did at the time she gave birth to her (there are some quite emotional moments between Adeline and her doughter and her dog  i wish not to spoil to you).

So basically we see Adelines style evolution from begining of 20th century to the very moment of 21sst century we are now in  - just because of that style evolution,worth watching.

Strathie combed through "racks and racks of clothes," including contemporary, period, and custom-made designs, during the costuming process. "All of that just to go on this journey to find what we think is going to describe this character the most effectively," says the costumer.
"Blake loves a tight waist—she loves that silhouette," Strathie says of the '50s-style fashion worn in the film. Though Lively dons several formal gowns for the film, most of the pieces worn reflect "a woman who moved towns, moved countries all throughout her life in order not to raise suspicion," Strathie explains. "So that [was] key for us—that no matter where Adaline was living, she couldn't be too extravagant or too amazing."
 "The clothes in this movie are really used to support the story of Adaline," says costume designer Angus Strathie, an Oscar winner for Moulin Rouge. And Lively—whose love of clothing has made her a fashion favorite—was certainly up to the task of donning period clothing ranging from '50s-inspired sweater sets to '60s-style miniskirts. "I had a vision from the beginning of what I thought Adaline would look like through the decades," Lively says. Read on for Strathie and Lively's take on the title character's spectacular style.
As Adaline, Lively wore this form-fitting dress for New Year's Eve celebrations both in 1945 and in 2014. "So we had to find a dress that served us in both time periods," Strathie explains. This custom Gucci gown fit the bill. Says Strathie: "We do have contemporary clothes that remind us of older styles for sure, but you had to believe it in both situations."
A vintage coat from the early '70s, a contemporary skirt and a turtleneck from "a couple seasons ago," were combined to create this present-day look worn by Lively. "It's that eclectic gathering of pieces together to make a style that's very much her own," Strathie says of Adaline's sartorial sense. "But it was still kept in a quite conservative way. Simply because it's not like she was a 20-year-old dressing up in old clothes—she's a 90-year-old dressing up in old clothes.

A date with a special man (Michiel Huisman) requires a special outfit, like this sweet, ladylike look. "It had these intricate, little twinkly beads sewn in really delicately. It was subtle, but really elegant," Lively says of the vintage two-piece suit. ''You don't see pieces like that nowadays.''

Creating vintage-inspired hairdos like the '60s-style blunt bangs seen here required a bit of movie magic. "There were many, many wigs used to make that happen on Blake," says Strathie. "It's a testament to the skill of the [hair stylists], who made her look so beautiful."

No go-go boots here: Adaline's scenes in the '60s take place in the countryside, which required "utilitarian and sort of functional clothes," explains Strathie.

Lively has graced major fashion campaigns for Gucci. She worked with the brand to create this gold, Grecian-inspired gown worn in a pivotal final scene. Though this outfit is among the film's most glamorous, Strathie says Lively didn't discriminate among her on-camera costumes. "She's very cognizant of the fact that these are tools that you use to create a performance in a character," he says. "It's very much about choosing the clothes—not necessarily the most amazing, or the most expensive, or the most glamorous, but what's actually going to serve a scene and serve her character the best."
