Film Couture

I'm simply stunned by the brilliant costume designs in this new film, The Secret of Moonacre. I honestly don't know much of anything about this film except it's a has the little girl from The Golden Compass of has Ioan Gruffudd in it! Brilliant man. :)
The costumes are incredible works of art...I'm just in awe...
I'm in love with this long flowy gauzy ribbon scarf/necklace. Mmm...I want to make one! And check out that cocky collar:
I love both of these costumes:

Lovely manly coat for Mr. Gruffudd. :)
What a lovely picture...this gown is incredible!
Cozy nightgown:

I'll have to look more into this movie and see what it's about. But it appears it is only playing the the UK. :( Hopefully it will come out least on video. I'd love to see it, even if just for the costumes. ;)


  1. Those costumes are tastefully made and very unique! I wonder if the movie is any good? Thanks for posting.

  2. Anna Kristine,

    All I can say is *thank you* for posting this. I had not heard of this movie and now I am QUITE excited. : )

    I did noticed that it's up on the Costumer's Guide...looks like I'll need to check that out!

    page here:

  3. oh my I really do hope this comes to the US.

  4. ah yes, I've been following this movie as well. :) I actually got on Amazon and ordered the book, "the little white horse" so I could read the story before the film comes out. it was very good and i'd recommended it. since it's a kids book you'll read it fast though. :) anyway can't wait to see the movie now!

  5. Oh, thanks for the info on the book AnnaMae! I'll have to check it out! :D

    And thank you for the link Caroline!

    I can hardly wait for this film...but now I can read the book while I'm waiting! :)

  6. I read the book "The Little White Horse", which is a cute children's fantasy story, so the movie will hopefully be equally sweet and innocent.

    And aren't these costumes insane? Gorgeous. :)

  7. I loved it!!!! I hope we will be able to see it here in the US. :)



Although I continually talk about movie costumes on this blog, I am not a movie reviewer. Not all the films I discuss are recommended and I do not choose to review weather they are appropriate or not for the simple fact that every person's standards are different. Something that is fine for me may be offensive to some one else and visa versa. If you would like to look into the appropriateness of a title, I recommend I have not seen all the movies I discuss, and am simply interested in the art of clothes in film. I will leave you to decide for yourself if you will watch the movie or not.
