Back in July, I posted the trailer for one of the most anticipated movies of the year, Anna Karenina, starring Keira Knightley as the lead, in a decadent reimagining of Leo Tolstoy’s classic novel. It’s one of my favorite books & I can’t wait to see it on the big screen- not to mention all the circulating buzz behind the fashion in the film. Banana Republic has created a line inspired by the film’s ornate, luxury costumes & now, we have 8 new posters (see below) which show off director ‘s various ways that love exists in the period piece.
Also, if you happen to be in London at the end of the month, you will be able to get a first-hand look at the gorgeous costumes, designed by Jacqueline Durran, from the film at the Victoria & Albert Museum, as a part of the Hollywood Costume exhibit.
The film, which also stars Jude Law, premieres November 16th, perfect timing for the upcoming awards season. Are you going to see this movie? Do you have any interest in seeing Keira play another dramatic period role? Happy Styling!
It’s not a secret that Oscar-nominated actress Keira Knightley is fond of making period pieces, especially with director, Joe Wright (Atonement). However, when the news came out that the British siren was going to star in a remake of Leo Tolstoy’s Anna Karenina, I was super excited since the novel is one of my favorites of all time. I’ve been following the production of this film on Movie Buzzers, covering all the casting news & now, not only has the official trailer hit the web, but costume designer Jacqueline Durran has told WWD that she is creating a collection inspired by the film for Banana Republic.
What’s curious about this collaboration is that the classic Russian drama is set in the late 19th century, however the BR line will feature a ’50s feel with a historic twist on blouses, coats, furs, jewelry, & accessories, ranging in price from $29.50 to $250.00. Durran describes her vision for the film & capsule collection as “a once in a lifetime experience. I was given the chance to apply my passion for period styles to a collection that translates to fashion today.” The line is set to debut in stores in October & audiences can revel in the fashionable film when it hits theaters November 2nd.
