An Examination of Martin Scorsese’s Costumes

December 19, 2013 § 3 Comments

Like many directors, Scorsese keeps an interesting style continuity throughout his films.

GANGSTER THREADS IN GOODFELLAS

In Goodfellas he used costumer Richard Bruno, known for his wardrobe work in Chinatown, Raging Bull and The Untouchables.

This film follows the rise and fall of the Lucchese crime family over a period from 1955 to 1980. Bruno’s stand out pieces, in my humble opinion, were in the following scene.

Henry and Karen’s early years: A 70’s ensemble of a leather jacket, polyester slacks and a classic button down seemed fitting for setting things straight with a neighbor.

Karen didn’t seem to mind, dressed in innocent and girlish pink pleated pants with a matching wool cardie.

“I gotta admit the truth, it turned me on.”

WALL STREET CON ARTISTRY

Being hailed as a close second best film of Scorsese’s according to one film critic, makes me yearn and ache to see this film so much more. It hits theaters on CHRISTMAS. But for now, let’s look at the garments provided by fashion house Armani.

Fuchsia mary janes, to die for.

Margot Robbie in a striped transparent black gown is sexy and it absolutely frames this new artists face. Isn’t she gorgeous? Can’t wait to see what this newcomer siren-on-the-screen has in store next.
