Benjamin Button: Beauty that Hurts.

On Sunday, my boyfriend took me to see The Curious Case of Benjamin Button. We've been waiting to see it for ages, since we're both huge fans of the director's previous work, and the previews were just gorgeous. The movie did not disappoint. It was long, long, long in the kind of way where I am very aware of what could be cut and was unnecessary, and yet I didn't really mind it. I liked it much better than the short story and visually, I was entranced to insane points of reason.

Mostly though, I felt wistfully envious of Cate Blanchett's clothing. First, playing herself from a young 17ish on, was breathtaking. She is so incandescently, such a horribly overused word, beautiful that it pained me. There were moments where I wanted to look at nothing but her face.



This is not to mention her clothes, which had me reaching and sad that they were not mine. I loved, loved, loved her little dancer's leggings and yellow swing coat (that I couldn't find a picture of) and the funny beret she wears.







I want to do nothing more than dress like a dancer and wear hats made out of numerous rabbits or other adorable animals.

  1. The costumes look amazing! I really wanted to see that movie, but, when I went, it was sold out, so I saw Frost Nixon instead (which was really good).

  11. Cate is the most amazingly beautiful person in the history of the world, I think. Goshhhh she looked amazing! And her hair! I adore red hair.

  12. I wanted to have red hair after this movie.

    What's even more stunning about Cate is that she's not the "conventional" type of beauty.

    LOOOOVED the movie. Loved it.

  13. I might have to wait to see it when it is released on video. I am not sure when it will come to Japan but I can't wait to see it. Cate can do no wrong it seems. She is so talented..anyone that can morph into Bob Dylan. Love the images :)
