I haven’t made it to the theater to catch Inherent Vice yet, but I have multiple confirmations that it’s completely worth the price of a ticket. Joaquin Phoenix has been nominated for a Golden Globe for his role, while Katherine Waterston has been getting all kinds of style buzz, both from The New York Times and Nikki (she did us all a solid and rounded up her best red carpet moments earlier this week).
Watching previews alone was enough to convince me that the retro ’70s costumes within would be stunning, and Anna confirmed they are indeed pretty fantastic. Before you read any further, be warned: You’re going to spend the rest of the day pining for a mod shift, a beach-vacation day dress, or a slinky evening gown (and probably all three).
In big-time fashion flicks, it can feel like the guys get looked over, with all that delicious wardrobe energy focused on the women in the films. This looks to not be the case here, with Joaquin and Owen Wilson both getting to rock some vintage-looking pieces that I’d like to see in my own closet.
