Inspiration for a Monday: Benjamin Button

There is just something about this film - isn't there?  The way it looks at things that might be thought of as scary or weird or frightening.

I love the part in the film where Benjamin talks about the house at night - everyone breathing, a mouse scurrying over the floor, the heater making noise - all just natural noises in a house.

The other thing I love about the film (apart from Brad Pitt) is the costuming of Cate Blanchett's character, Daisy.

Here are some of my favourite outfits that she wears (looking lovely and slim and dancer-like while I feel like a hippo whose skin is about to burst!)

Dressed for a ballet rehearsal.  From here.

Dancing.  From here.

A close up and a sketch.  From here.

In the Russian snow.  From here.

From here.

At a party.  From here.

There is a great article here that discusses costuming in the film and has an interview with Jacqueline West - the films costume designer.
