Fishnet Flix: A Costume Design Podcast


May 27, 2022

"Maybe there won't be marriage, maybe there won't be sex, but by God there'll be dancing." We’re wrapping up Wedding Month with one of the greatest rom-coms of all time, My Best Friend’s Wedding. It stars Julia Roberts as Julianne, a 27-year-old food critic who made a pact with her dude bff (Dermot Mulroney) that if they aren’t married by the time they turn the ripe old age of 28, they’ll get married to each other. Surprise, though—he’s engaged to a 20-year-old Cameron Diaz, so now Julianne must sabotage the wedding! Costume designer Jeffrey Kurland (Oceans Eleven, Tenet, Erin Brockovich) put Roberts in custom-made masculine silhouettes in muted hues, while Diaz is in colorful, uber preppy, Lilly Pulitzer-esque looks. We also discuss favorite perfumes (Fenty), this wild season of Atlanta, Blaire’s obsession with haupia pudding, and coin a new handbag trend: BPE (Big Purse Energy).
