This is exactly what it sounds like, one of my papers from my costume history class has made it to my blog. I am doing this not only because I have had very little time to devote to different content this week, but also because the designer of The King's Speech, Jenny Beavan is great! I love her work and would love to one day meet her. Hopefully if I do get the chance I will have thought up some good questions to ask her that will not waste her time.
If you are so inclined go ahead and read my 1,176 word paper (I got rather wrapped up in the topic) about the costumes of one of my favorite films. If not, I won't feel bad, but check out Jenny Beavan's work. This woman's CV reads like a beautiful dream. Sense and Sensibility(1995), Jane Eyre (1996), Gosford Park (2001), Amazing Grace (2006), Sherlock Holmes (2009), etc. These are all great films!
I hope you enjoy the article and re watch The King's Speech to see the costumes. (If you haven't seen it yet, get on that too. You have no excuses it's on Netflix.)
