    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.

    Dressing Stylish Taiwanese Gangsters with 'The Brothers Sun' Costume Designer Vera Chow

    Dressing Stylish Taiwanese Gangsters with 'The Brothers Sun' Costume Designer Vera Chow

    The Brothers Sun hive, rise up! The show’s costume designer, Vera Chow, joins the pod to tell us how she dressed Michelle Yeoh, Justin Chien, Sam Song, and the rest of the cast for the new Netflix series. If you haven’t binge-watched this hilarious, action-packed show yet, it tells the story of a Taiwanese triad gangster who goes to LA to protect his estranged mother and improv-wannabe brother. Vera talks about how growing up in Asia helped prepare her for the gig and how she highlighted API clothing brands and sourced from thrift stores, Chinatown, designers, and Amazon for the characters' looks. She also created custom pieces (including a $6,000 corset belt for a character who dies right away), used tons of symbolism, put in costume design Easter eggs, and so much more for this epic series. Tune in now!

    Fur Coats and Overalls in Steel Magnolias (1989)

    My colors are blush and bashful! We’re ending Dollyuary, our month-long Dolly Parton celebration, with a classic…Steel Magnolias! After having emotional breakdowns from watching this tear-jerker movie, we get into the fashions of these strong southern belles! Costume designer Julie Weiss (Frida, American Beauty) put this deliciously talented crew of women (Dolly Parton, Sally Field, Julia Roberts, Shirley MacLaine, Daryl Hannah, and Olympia Dukakis) in big shoulder pads, cat-eye glasses, fur coats and overalls, and church hats galore! We discuss the alleged Mob Wife trend and thee armadillo cake; Blaire celebrates Ouiser’s (Shirley’s) eccentric Southern Lady glam, and Marie attempts to make Truvee’s (Dolly’s) cuppa cuppa cuppa cake (1 cup flour, 1 cup sugar, and 1 fruit cocktail with the syrup).

    Boudoir Chic and 'Ringmaster Red' in The Best Little Whorehouse in Texas (1982)

    Boudoir Chic and 'Ringmaster Red' in The Best Little Whorehouse in Texas (1982)

    Y’all come back now, ya hear? In The Best Little Whorehouse in Texas movie musical, Dolly Parton is Miss Mona, the madam of the local Chicken Ranch, a historic and beloved brothel in a small Texas town. Sheriff Ed Earl (Burt Reynolds) helps out Miss Mona by looking out for the brothel, but the duo runs into trouble when TV personality Melvin Thorpe tries to expose the ranch. Dolly's outfits are a serious boudoir chic feast for the eyes, with ruffles, lace, feathers, sequins, and floor-length “ringmaster red” garments, costumed by the late, great Theodora Van Runkle (Troop Beverly Hills).
    As usual, we break down our favorite looks but also discuss Burt Reynold’s hunkdom (and how we’d cast Pedro Pascal in his role for our imaginary remake). There’s also chisme about Dolly and Burt hating each other during filming, so Blaire has a request for Ryan Murphy: to make the next installment of Feud be about their drama!
