Period Movie Fashion Inspiration

Pride and Prejudice - The Special Edition (A&E, 1996)The DuchessMarie Antoinette

This is an amazing site that was recommended by Vintage Vixen. They take still shots from period movies and find people wearing similar outfits on the street. Kind of like the Sartorialist meets Hollywood Fashion Vault.

I found this very inspiring since I struggle to create wearable looks from period films earlier than about 1920. This has reinvigorated my motivation to attempt some of my favorite period fashion films, such as Marie Antoinette, Anne of the Thousand Days, The Duchess and the BBC's Pride and Prejudice.
