Guess who I just got off the phone with?! My old friend Patricia Field. She did the wardrobe for the upcoming fashion flick Confessions of a Shopaholic. Look at this picture — does it not scream Patricia Field? The colors, the accessories — no wonder Rebecca Bloomwood is sulking having to clean out her closet.
I remember when I spoke with her about the Sex and the City Movie wardrobe, she talked about the importance of vintage and breaking the fashion rules. Same mentality goes for this film, but this character, only one fashion-loving female, buys clothes every day, everywhere. She is, after all, a shopaholic. Patricia, who does "volume fashion," is the go-to costume designer for any fashion-heavy film, so we can't wait for this one. Plus, Isla Fisher is so adorable and freakin' hilarious — according to Patricia, Isla "just got it" when getting into the clothes and the clotheshorse character. Stay tuned for my exclusive interview with Patricia closer to the film release, Feb. 13. Hmm, the first day of New York Fashion Week, coincidence? . . .
To see the movie trailer (so funny),
