"A thing of beauty is a joy forever."
Yesterday I went to the theater to see 'Bright Star' the new film about John Keats and Fanny Brawne. If you love beautiful clothes, hand stitching, and poetry...this is the film for you. I left the theater so inspired, and slightly gloomy. Do take a handkerchief with you as it will be needed!
Ben Wishaw did an incredible job as John Keats. One couldn't help falling in love with him.
And despite all the gorgeous costumes in this film, Keat's frock coat was my favorite:
Abbie Cornish was amazing as Fanny Brawne, and her costumes are stunning:
She designs and sews everything she wears so there is a lot of detail that we don't normally get to see in costume dramas. My friends and I were in awe over this sweater that is made of what looks like really tiny granny squares:
I am in love with her striped spencer:
Her little sister 'Toots' had some of the most adorable little dresses I've ever seen. Now I want to make children's Regency clothes. :)
