15 Cases When Make-up and Dressers Screwed Up

Of course, it is difficult to make a movie that everything will perfect. However, viewer has the right to count on avoiding at least obvious blunders, such as a clear discrepancy between costume and a declared era or mysteriously disappearing and appearing wardrobe items. Someone will say that this is uncritical, but still we want to see fewer such annoying mistakes.

We at Happy Worthy Life noticed some of these moments. And if you missed something, write to us in the comments.

  • Costume designer Orry-Kelly, who worked on the characters in the film “Some Like It Hot” was forced to stylize Marilyn Monroe‘s costumes to match her figure, since her figure did not look in real women’s outfits of the 1920s. The star’s dresses were made in the style of the 1950s, while the picture set in 1929 .

  • The makeup of the Edwardian era was very different from the way we see it on the face of Rosa, the heroine of the movie “Titanic”. Lips were supposed to be red, blush all over the cheek, and no bright black mascara or eyeliner until 1916 (the Titanic sank in 1912).

  • In Doctor Strange, the characters perform brain surgery without surgical masks. In reality, this is impossible .

  • And again, an example of violation of historical canons for the sake of creating a spectacular image of an actress. Cleopatra ruled 51-30 BC. e., when there was no question of either such a cut or such colors of clothing. But Elizabeth Taylor in the role of the Egyptian queen was remembered by the audience for a long time.

  • But in the film “Alpha” cannot be called anything other than a miscalculation, because the action takes place in primitive times.

  • Angelina Jolie in the film “Alexander” looks amazing, however, there were some inaccuracies here. Alas, not only were the fabrics not sewn then, and without a belt, a noble woman would never appear in public. The ancient Greek costume was a chiton – a skillfully draped piece of fabric that was attached to the shoulder with a fibula. Over the chiton, the ladies wore peplos – a wide and long piece of fabric, also with many beautiful folds.

  • In To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before, the main character’s jacket, Lara Jean, was turned inside out, but in the next frame she’s wearing it correctly.

  • Unfortunately, the creators of “The Lord of the Rings” made an annoying blunder. When Sam says goodbye to Frodo, first we see Sam’s vest, and then this part of the suit disappears without a trace.

  • And in the film “Slumdog Millionaire” magically disappears and appears on the face of the heroine.

  • In the movie “Silver Linings Playbook”, the main character played by Bradley Cooper, sitting on the floor, wrapped his shoes with duct tape. But in the next frame, the tape is gone, and Jennifer Lawrence’s character rewinds his sneaker herself

  • In The Dark Knight, the Joker changes his hair color from chestnut to green at lightning speed.

  • Working on the film “Marie Antoinette”, dressers tried to convey the atmosphere of those times, but there was definitely no sneaker in the 18th century. The outfits themselves in the film lacked the rich lace trim characteristic of the Rococo style.

  • In the film “Once Upon a Time in Hollywood” Brad Pitt’s character wears a watch models Citizen 8118 Bullhead, which appeared in 1970, and the action films it takes place in 1969.

Do you think it is worth paying attention to such mistakes or do they not spoil the films?
