Let’s watch the Fifties and Sixties in the latest film by Tim Burton, “Big Eyes” starring Amy Adams and Christoph Waltz. A film highly sought in the images, keeping the decorations simple, solid colors, classic shots.
You can watch the trailer HERE.
Everything in this movie enhances the real protagonists of the story: the paintings that portray the characters with huge eyes. This vision of the eyes and the faces portrayed in the paintings, are so much in contrast with the simplicity around. This kind of art seems even more out of the ordinary.
Amy Adams has a white skin and bleached hair, the Marilyn Monroe style in vogue in the Fifties. Her clothings are simple, pure lines, solid colors. Very chic.
What stands out by this look, is simplicity, a woman who definitely followed the fashion of the time, but without overdoing it, without jewelry or too much things. Certainly in line with portraing a painter, an artist, and we know that, alas, artists often are not millionaires (at least when alive). That time still inspires a lot of fashion today. During the ’50s in Paris, designers such as Christian Dior, Balenciaga and Chanel were revolutionizing forever the female image.
I have chosen for you some silhouettes that I love, from some past shows of Christian Dior and Yves Saint Laurent, who took inspiration from the lines of that time to make the clothes of today. As you see, there is an inspiration but obviously they are very modern clothes. The choice is yours!
