... just so I can wear fabulous historical costume reproductions. They just released the trailer for The Duchess (2008), starring Keira Knightley. I don't know if the movie will be any good, but look at the sleeves on that dress! I have serious costume-envy!
I'm not saying I want to go back to the days before the invention of antibiotics and deodorant, but I do think we should reconsider our clothes. Who cares if the dresses were uncomfortable, suffocating, and weighed more than 10 lbs?! I'd be willing to suffer for fashion! Of current designers, only Galliano seems to understand this. Ahh, to live and die in Galliano!
