It's all because I watched The Talented Mr. Ripley last night. Those fifties fashions! So fab.

By the way, that is a fabulous movie. It is so well done and well written, you will be routing for the bad guy. And when you figure out exactly who the bad guy is, let me know, will you? None of the three main male characters is exactly a good guy and frankly, I didn't much care what happened to them. But the two women, especially Cate Blanchette, are so true and real in this film. You just feel their hurt and confusion. I don't like Paltrow but have to admit she is superb in this film. It's one of my favorites, creepy as it is.
