This Dress Is So Important: Cecilia’s green dress, Atonement (2007)
"She felt sleekly impregnable, slippery and secure; it was a mermaid who rose to meet her in her own full-length mirror." -Atonement (Ian McEwan)
“Joe said the dress had to be green, we really didn’t know why.” -Jacqueline Durran (costume designer)
A complex amalgamation of silk, organza, and chiffon in various greens, Cecilia’s dress was meticulously designed by Jacqueline Durran with considerable input from director Joe Wright. The striking color was achieved by layering several fabrics as Durran could not find an existing hue to suit her purposes. This method of construction also served to allow the gown to shift shades between scenes and reflect Cecilia’s emotional state, from anxiety about Robbie’s arrival (a brighter green) to lustful ardor during the library sex scene (a darker jungle green.) Other notable design techniques included incorporating a ‘30s-style knot to represent Cecilia’s virginity, and cutting slits in the dress so that Cecilia would disturbingly resemble a pinned grasshopper while engaging in her passionate rendezvous.
Durran had full knowledge that the dress would not be a faithful representation of the era’s fashion trends, working under Wright’s instructions to avoid a stuffy, dated look. Instead she focused on the inconsistencies of the character’s childhood memories, which allowed her to create a less historically accurate and more fluid look that emerged as a combination of ‘20s and ‘30s designs.
In order to make actress Keira Knightley appear nearly naked whilst wearing the gown, the fabric was kept as fine as possible–so fine, in fact, that it tore several times while filming. Four of the widely-hemmed, flowing skirts and ten of the bodices were kept on hand for reparations.
Alright so I saw a post on here and it was this song but sped to walking speed…except Alex sounded like a chipmunk. So I took it upon myself to do the same thing, except keep the original pitch. I love it.
Life is so hard when your best friend is a 9.5/10 and you’re a strong 4 with the right filter and lighting
the ol’ razzle dazzle
I scrolled past this and then barely caught the shoes AND NOW-
Was this a joke or is someone getting fired?
"Don’t wear a hoodie if you don’t want to be mistaken for a criminal and shot."
"Don’t get drunk at a party if you don’t want to be sexually assaulted."
"Don’t argue with a cop if you don’t want to get killed."
"Don’t walk home by yourself if you don’t want to get raped."
Victim blaming 101: Everyone should live in fear from ever doing anything.
my fall look today is winged eyeliner, plum lipstick, and a look on my face like i’m fucking your boyfriend and can’t wait for you to find out.
My fall look is simple liner with bold lashes, burgundy lipstick, a gleam in my eyes that let’s men know that I’ll suck their dick, their money out of their bank accounts, and the souls right out of their bodies.
this is my favorite post on tumblr currently

" haha jk we had sex"
I am so sick of people trying to claim 50 Shades of Grey will not be able to have a negative effect on society because it’s “just a book”. The Bible was just a book. The Communist Manifesto was just a book. Mein Kampf, To Kill a Mockingbird, 1984, The Quran, freaking Harry Potter were all “just books”. If you keep saying literature and media don’t have the potential to change countries, or cultures, or the world, then you’re just deluding yourself.
