The girls of The Virgin Suicides weren't rich. And to call a story of 5 girls who were driven to suicide "poor little rich girl stories" seems...a little insensitive.

Charlotte from Lost in Translation was obviously well-off, but she wasn't frivolous. And the movie doesn't really try to make us feel bad for her. Ultimately, it's a movie about friendship, being an adult, and feeling lost. Those are things almost anyone, regardless of their financial situation, can relate to.

Marie Antoinette was incredibly wealthy, yes, but the problems she faced were above and beyond what we regular folk deal with. I think she transcends "poor little rich girl". The world hated her. She was killed by her own people. Her whole family was killed. etc. etc. etc.

I think the Amelie movie is so amazing, it's so beautiful, but the ending is sad..because it's the ending..

Not so good quality, but just saw the movie and remembered how out of this world Michelle is, she is just a great actress and super gorgeous!

^ Haha! I had the theme to the movie stuck in my head when I looked in this thread. Thanks for posting. The costumes in Fellini films are always great!

the caps for the last emperor are stunning. love it, completely. thanks for posting.
- wanted to make a suggestion that when people are posting caps, especially considering that this is a fashion forum, to research who did the costumes for the referenced film.

if you IMDB the information or just google 'costume designs' & the name of the film the information usually pops up. it would give the designer more visibility, i think.

as a first contribution to this thread; i researched 'the last emperor' & costume designs were by james acheson.

This is the first image from the upcoming film Black Swan. Rodarte created 40 costumes for the movie, including this one. I can't wait to see the rest!
