The Hollywood epic “Anna Karenina,” received several nominations from the Academy Award’s committee, and is an adaptation of the classic 1800s Russian novel. However it contains a major overhaul when it comes to the fashion and the look of the film.
Designer Jacqueline Durran, who studied 19th century dress from drawing and portraits for weeks, noted that the director of the project, Joe Wright, decided to not take accuracy into account with the exception of the peasantry. Therefore, all of the outfits are created with a 1950s twist to the classic 1840s style.
This is not a bad thing, however, as the 1950s style has been chosen to show off the silhouettes of the main characters while still maintaining a sense of class and dignity. Photos of star Keira Knightley, one of many women who is portraying the classic role, confirm this feeling, as a parade of luxurious outfits and floor stretching gowns which truly fits the Russian aristocracy.
The overall effect is somewhat timeless, with its trimmed coats, lace veils, feathered headpieces and other such clothing. Durran, who has worked with Wright twice before already has two Oscar nominations under her belt for “Atonement" and "Pride & Prejudice.” Many feel she has truly pulled out all the stops with “Anna Karenina.”
