And while alot of mysterious things happen in the film, costume designers Ann Roth Gary Jones, won an Oscar for their work creating wardrobe envy. They create the perfect mix of Riviera-ready resort everyday life vacation clothes and creating Marge a style icon of Italian dolce vita lifestyle- girlfriend of a rich heir. Southern Italy in the ’50s in the film like a real time capsule reflected perfectly with costumes. Marge’s swimsuits, wage espadrilles, colour prints suiting Italian style fits perfect with spending the holidays tanning in San Remo (I was there two years ago in summer *cries*) , all characters have über style in The Talented Mr. Ripley.
Great inspiration for summer and vacation style and if you will visit Italy this summer its a double win to check Marge's style.
imdb summary of the film: In late 1950s New York, Tom Ripley, a young underachiever, is sent to Italy to retrieve Dickie Greenleaf, a rich and spoiled millionaire playboy. But when the errand fails, Ripley takes extreme measures.
