INT. THOMPSON BEVERLY HILLS PENTHOUSE – NIGHT
What I love most about styling for film is that it offers a different perspective on Fashion. Wardrobe isn’t just about achieving a specific style but also about shaping a character and conveying a psychological state of mind. Unlike the two previous looks we unveiled (the Monika Chiang beaded goddess gown and Rachel Gilbert sequin mermaid dress) that underscore more upbeat and assertive highpoints in our heroine’s emotional journey, for this scene we needed to convey a more self-reflective and introspective kinda mood sprinkled with a touch of sadness. But always dripping in glamor, of course!
This elegant jeweled halter dress by BCBG Max Azria felt right on target. Delicate and demure yet a little revealing (I love how the gentle cutout back mirrors the way she’s letting some of her inner feelings show in that scene). To complete the look, I amped up the glamor a notch with a cloud of ethereal feathers à la Jean Harlow (courtesy of a gorgeous vintage marabou jacket I found at an antiques show years ago) and a sexy pair of Monika Chiang chain and leather lace-up sandals. Just a hint that though she’s feeling low, it ain’t gonna be for long!
You’ll recognize my handsome co-star, Colin Bryant, in a cameo appearance. He’s given me a heartbreak and this mysterious card… Wanna know what’s in it? Stay tuned for the premiere of SECOND CHANCE!
