Now, this gif always annoys me, because it shows up on my dash with comments like “omg this is the sexiest thing eva” and “men in suits hhhHHH” which is fair enough.
But this gif is a very poor example of a sexily suited man. His jacket is extremely ill fitted, as if it were made for a man four sizes up from him. His tie is crooked, too tight, and mis-lengthened. His shirt’s collar is the wrong size for him, and the way he buttons it makes it look as if he’s never done it before.
Here, ladies and gents, is how it is done.
For the new followers, this is why I made these gifs to begin with.
Oh my, are you saying the young man in those gifs is actually you, oh…wow…
Royal Affair: Kirsten Dunst and the cast of ‘Marie Antoinette’ (dir. Sofia Coppola) showcase the stunning powdered pastel costumes used in the movie as they lounge in a Parisian hotel for the famed photographer Annie Leibovitz, the story was featured in the September issue of Vogue US, 2006 - picture via Vogue
The costumes of ‘Marie Antoinette’ made the movie what it was; miles of tulle, silk and satin were used as well as 18th century lace to create an air of luxury, and the palette was based on a box of Ladurée macarons that Sofia handed to costume designer Milena Canonero which set the colour theme for the movie. Though, the costumes were not merely frivolous as the countless pieces worn were meant to reflect the style revolution as the characters evolved, making them a pivotal element of one of the most visually sweet movies ever produced.
