    Frankenflops and Heath Ledger's Tank Tops in 10 Things I Hate About You (1999)

    Frankenflops and Heath Ledger's Tank Tops in 10 Things I Hate About You (1999)

    Happy 25th anniversary to the 1999 classic, 10 Things I Hate About You! We’ve talked about Kim Tillman’s work on the pod before (Doppelgänger, Wild Things). This time, she created thoughtful and fashionable costumes for the Seattle teens in this reimagined Taming of the Shrew. Kim dressed Julia Stiles’s character in low-slung pants, cropped camo, and Frankenflops, opposite her sister’s (Larisa Oleynik) ultra-girly style. Heath Ledger (in his breakthrough role) got the stylish bad-boy treatment in custom-dyed tank tops and PVC pants. We also discuss the iconic prom looks, name the film’s Surprise Style Icon, revisit Andrew Keegan’s alleged cult (and then fantasize about becoming cult leaders ourselves).

    Pay Equity Now! With Costume Designers Ariyela Wald-Cohain and Whitney Anne Adams

    Pay Equity Now! With Costume Designers Ariyela Wald-Cohain and Whitney Anne Adams

    Did you know that costume designers, the majority of whom are women, are paid nearly 30 percent less than other, male-dominated creative department heads? Despite costume design being a pivotal part of storytelling in cinema, it has been historically dismissed as “women’s work,” leading to the artisans being underpaid and under-appreciated in their industry. 
    In this very special episode, we're covering the Pay Equity Now movement! Blaire chats with costume designers and friends of the pod, Ariyela Wald-Cohain and Whitney Anne Adams, who are co-chairs of the Costume Design Guild’s Pay Equity Steering Committee, about this important initiative. Tune in now and learn how to support costume designers' fight for pay parity, because without them, there would be no us! #CDGPayEquity #NakedWithoutUs

    Mid-Noughties Fashion and Poor Little Goth Girl Chic in Saltburn

    Pour yourself a nice cool glass of bathwater because we’re talking about Saltburn today! Blaire and Marie break down the mid-2000s looks of the Catton clan whipped up by costume designer Sophie Canale (Bridgerton S2). We reminisce about our chaotic Facebook and Flickr albums and going to Club Bang. We also debate about skirts with leggings(“Is ‘Toddler Style’ fashion gonna make a comeback?”) discuss Jacob Elordi and his rich rugby jock, Ashton Kutcher-esque look, and praise our new shared style icon, Carrey Mulligan’s Poor Dear Pamela, with her designer goth girl ‘fits.

The MOST fun!

I’ve been listening since MM was Fishnet Flix and look forward to new episode each week! Absolutely love the dynamic between Marie and Blaire, feel like I’m just hanging with my two friends when I listen. They give a whole new perspective to films when I listen — clothes really play a crucial part and sometimes you forget their power. It’s more than just “oh this outfit was so hot!” It’s also the psychological energy that clothes can convey. These two gals are my faves!
