Style Inspiration – The Aviator

I am not normally one for new movies as I am more of a classic black and white or Hollywood musical kinda gal but one that I love mostly for the fabulous clothes is The Aviator (2004),  the amazing costumes especially those that Cate Blanchette wore as Katherine Hepburn and she did an incredible job of portraying one of my favourite icons. And the suit and hat worn by Kate Beckinsale as Ava Gardener is to die for!!

The costume designer, Sandy Powell who was born in London won an Oscar for her costume design on this movie and is often called upon for work on period dramas. She had a budget of $2 million for the clothes and used original pieces or made replicas for originals she found in vintage shops.
