50’s Style Without a Hitch

Image

This week saw the release of ‘Hitchcock’, the biopic of the legendary director Alfred Hitchcock. Set in 1959 it tells the story of his relationship with his under-valued wife, Alma, as they embark on the making of a new film called ‘Psycho’ which subsequently went on to become one of the best known horror movies of all time.

Not only will it be a telling insight into arguably the most influential and recognisable director of late but also have women lusting after the beautiful costumes worn by the gorgeous Scarlett Johansson and Jessica Biel. The former gets to grips with playing scream queen, Janet Leigh, and her form fitting wardrobe whilst Johansson parade her enviable figure around in classic fitted styles such as pencil skirts and halter necked gowns.

Not to be out done by her co-star, Jessica Biel also gets a worthy wardrobe all be it slightly more demure. We see her play actress Vera Miles in an array of tailored ensembles and circle cut dresses.

Finally, Helen Mirren plays Hitchcock’s long suffering wife, Alma Reville, but that doesn’t mean her costumes have to suffer as Mirren gets to wear a collection of equally as flattering styles. This is a great demonstration of how this classic look can transcend age groups.

So shimmy down to the cinema and catch ‘Hitchcock’, in your 50’s attire of course, and see what all the fuss is about for yourself.

Can’t make it to the cinema? Luckily Hitchcock seems to be in fashion at the moment and you can own the BBC’s drama ‘The Girl’ on DVD starring Sienna Miller as Tippi Hedrun. It tells the story of the tumultuous relationship between actress/director and Hitchcock’s unhealthy obsession with her during the filming of the classic thriller ‘The Birds’. Miller gets to wear impeccable costumes reminiscent of the late 50’s fashion from fitted pencil ensembles to vintage fur shrugs. See for yourself on our Pinterest board!
