Renee Zellwegger has a special place in my heart ever since Bridget Jones Diary. While her penchant for Carolina Herrera gowns and excessive weight loss are not on my list of her fav attributes, her starring role in the campy 2003 movie “Down with Love” certainly is. A homepage to the Doris Day/Rock Hudson battle of the sexes films of the 60s, “Down with Love” is heavy on the girl power and innuendos.
But the real star of film is the costumes and wardrobe. While the plot is purely farce, the wardrobe is SURRRRRRRIOUS! Wool sheath dresses, matching hats and gloves, stewardess ensembles, hat boxes and dance numbers. And yall know I’m a sucker for a dance number. Down with Love, UP with FASHION!
There are so many great fashion moments in this film. If you haven’t seen it you must watch… NOW!
