The Curious Case Of Benjamin Button

Costume Design

The wardrobe for this movie is absolutely insane. The costume designer Jacqueline West has been nominated for two Oscars for costume design; One for "The Curious Case of Benjamin Button" in 2009 and the other for the movie "Quills" in 2001. The photos above are three of my favorites.

In the first photo, Cate Blanchett is dressed in the infamous red dress constructed by Jacqueline West herself. She says it was greatly influenced by the designs of Claire McCardell, one of the top costume designers in the 1940's and 1950's.

I love, love this dress!

As for Brad Pitt, dressed only in the chicest attire haute couture has to offer, he was a little more than easy on the eyes.

Oh how we love the 1940's...


  1. Okay, soooo with you on this post. LOVE the wardrobe. Striking and classy.
