A Nod in Fashion Filmography

“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 historykey_art_casinoof 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”.

In one of the final scenes of Casino DeNiro makes a loud fashion statement in this extremely pink ensemble. One of my favorites of the entire film.

Stone and DeNiro were a match made in heaven in this scene. Stone's sexy yet classy dress was everything Las Vegas.
