New age Cinderella:Denim and Dogs Hellur…yes you guessed right, I just saw Cinderella. Beautiful movie. They have too many film adaptations though but I kinda like this latest one. Cate Blanchett’s gowns and skirts though…*sigh*. Sandy Powell, the designer, slayed me. The design, the fit, the fabric, not to mention the hats!! No wonder she’s won an Oscar thrice. You need to see that movie if you haven’t yet, at least for the sake of adoring the costumes. There’s got to be a secret marriage between clothing, character and a
