i am love

this movie was something i was really looking forward to see, and it lived up to my expectations. one of the critics called it "a guilty pleasure", another one dubbed it as "fashion & food porn", but for me it was more like a beautiful novel printed on glossy pages of a fashion magazine where composition is immaculate, colors are well-thought, and looks are skillfully styled to complement the story.

"The wonderful Antonella Cannarozzi, who's our costume designer, designed the entire collusion of all the wardrobe," said Swinton. "But we did work with two fashion houses -- the house of Fendi dressed the men and also provided extraordinary furs for Marisa.

"But the Emma character was dressed entirely by Jil Sander. Raf Simons and his team created an entire wardrobe -- that's something that classic cinema used to do quite regularly, if you think about the relationship between Givenchy and Audrey Hepburn or Saint Laurent and Catherine Deneuve. Or even in old Hollywood, if you think of Adrian dressing Garbo or Katharine Hepburn."
