As BelAmifilm.com has reported, shooting has begun on interior shots in London. Let’s have a look at the costumes.
So if the men look like this…
The shape of women’s clothing went through a lot of changes in the late 1800’s: pre-hoop, hoop, bustle, no bustle and bustle again, just to name a few. Because of all of this and without knowing the specific year the film will be staged in, it’s hard to determine exactly what we’ll see. Our guess is late 1890’s in order to use the Eiffel Tower as a backdrop.
With a setting of 19th Century Paris, France, we should find ladies in to-die-for fabrics with exquisite detailing, cascades of silk and ultra feminine clothes.
In the later quarter of the 19th century there was a proliferation of women’s magazines, so a woman with money would have been up to date on all the latest fashion trends. These ladies knew how to bring it.
Seriously, our eyes bug out just imagining this.
And what will our dear Georges find under these elegant gowns? Bloomers, corsets and petticoats with layers and layers of fabric await our young ShagBert.
