“When you love someone, you’ve gotta trust them. There’s no other way. You’ve got to give them the key to everything that’s yours. Otherwise, what’s the point? And for a while, I believed, that’s the kind of love I had.” ~Ace Rothstein
One of the best parts of movies is the wardrobe, especially in films set in times gone past. Movies like “Goodfellas”, “Hoodlum”, “Victor Victoria”
and of course “Harlem Nights” are just a few of my favorites. But the one movie that pleases my soul to watch just for the wardrobe is the 1995 drama “Casino” starring Robert DeNiro, Sharon Stone and Joe Pesci. (which is based on the t he historyof the Stardust Hotel) One of Hollywood’s most iconic films in to fashion, the wardrobe stylist captured Las Vegas style in the 1970’s early 80’s without question. The costume budget alone was $1 million dollars with actress Sharon Stone having 40 costume changes , DeNiro had 70 both actors were allowed to keep their wardrobe following the end of filming. This is my nod to fashion history in cinematography by way of the film “Casino”.
These looks only scratch the surface of the amazing wardrobe that can be seen in this classic movie. Simply put, GOD bless this wardrobe stylist!
