Romeo + Juliet
Where were you when you first saw Claire Danes and Leonardo DiCaprio lock eyeballs through the fish tank in Romeo + Juliet? Baz Luhrmann’s 1996 adaptation of the Shakespearean teenage tragedy is a hyper-stylized fever dream that we’re STILL obsessing over 25 years later. Costume designer Kym Barrett (The Matrix trilogy, Us, Aquaman) put Danes in those iconic angel wings while dressing the rival Montague and Capulet boy-gangs in a perfect contradiction of Hawaiian shirts and D&G. The movie, the costumes, and the soundtrack still hold up. Notes & Mentions: Crime Scene: The Vanishing at the Cecil Hotel doc on Netflix Fishnet Flix February Playlist

Crazy Rich Asians
In this week’s episode, we cover a more modern rom-com with the most incredible costume design…Crazy Rich Asians! It is FILLED to the brim with head-to-toe iconique outfits, courtesy of Mary E. Vogt (Hocus Pocus, Batman Returns). We’re adding silk pajamas and hunky Henry Golding to our carts, okayrrr. Tune in now!

Waiting To Exhale
Today’s episode is on Waiting to Exhale, the Terry McMillan-novel-turned-1995 film starring the late, great Whitney Houston, alongside Angela Bassett, Lela Rochon, and Loretta Devine as four friends living in Phoenix Arizona, looking for love in alllll the wrong f***boys. It’s a movie filled with as many irresistible lines as there are costumes — from designer Judy L. Ruskin (Sleepless in Seattle, Bruce Almighty) that are somehow both timeless and deliciously ’90s at the same time. We won’t blame you if you start quoting the movie nonstop (esp. Bernadette's fire-setting monologue), or listen to the iconique soundtrack (which was produced by Babyface, and features Brandy, SWV, and, of course, Whitney) all week long. We also discuss whether or not we should give The Wedding Planner another chance... Notes & Mentions: 1996 LA Times interview with Judy Ruskin Oral History of Waiting to Exhale on Zora Great piece on the costumes by Tarisai Ngangura for Jezebel "Sittin' Up in My Room" Music video by Brandy for the film's soundtrack For visuals of the costumes, follow us on Instagram at @fishnetflixpod DM or email your movie requests at firstname.lastname@example.org!

We’re kicking off Valentine’s month with the moment we’ve all been waiting for, an episode on True Romance, the 1993 Tarantino-scripted, Tony Scott-directed film about a comic book nerd and a call girl who fall in love and go on the run. Yes, we see Gary Oldman with his locs, leopard print robe, and Jamaican patois, but Patricia Arquette rocks Every. Single. Damn. Look. as Alabama Worley. The cute, quirky, fun, and timeless costumes are by Susan Becker (The Lost Boys! Father of the Bride!). We also get into a lot of fun tidbits about the movie, try to guess Alabama’s zodiac sign, and uncover some exciting news about that heart jacket we talked about in our past episode on Jennifer’s Body. For visuals of the costumes, follow us on Instagram at @fishnetflixpod DM or email your movie requests at email@example.com!

Bill and Ted's Excellent Adventure
You know we couldn’t end Keanuary without Bill and Ted’s Excellent Adventure! While this 1989 movie may not be known for its costumes (especially as it takes place over just one day) the Bill and Ted look is easily recognizable, fun, and dare we say, relevant? The cropped sweatshirt look is definitely in these days, hello, Bill S. Preston, Esquire. Costumes are by Jill M. Ohanneson (Six Feet Under, Revenge, Preacher). In this episode, we talk about how a fashion historian uses the brief Beethoven scene as a benchmark for all Regency-era movies and debate whether or not teens still use binders. Also, Blaire realizes she’s never seen the 1993 erotic thriller, Sliver. For visuals of the costumes, follow us on Instagram at @fishnetflixpod DM or email your movie requests at firstname.lastname@example.org! Episode notes: The Bill & Ted test Playboy x Missguided

Riding in Cars With Boys
It's the third week of Drewcember and we're Riding in Cars With Boys.

The Craft: Legacy
In this week’s episode (which is the final installment of our “Season of the Witch” series, we talk about our listeners’ movie-inspired Halloween costumes. Then, we discuss the new reboot of The Craft…and we’ve got a lot to say (warning: lots of spoilers)! If you listened to our episode of the original 1996 movie, you know that it meant a lot to us, so we don’t hold back on our general thoughts about The Craft: Legacy before going into the fashion. We talk about the special details that costume designer Avery Plewes (Ready or Not) put into each girl’s look (they were inspired by elements) and, by the end of the episode, play with the idea of doing a full month dedicated to Nic Cage.

We’re almost done with this month’s Season of the Witch series, but wanted to sneak in a special mini-episode! If you’ve ever seen the 1995 anthology film, Four Rooms, you know that there’s a segment directed by Allison Anders (Mi Vida Loca) about a coven of witches (including Madonna!) that gather in a hotel room on New Year’s Eve to resurrect their goddess, Diana. It’s short but sweet, and the costumes (by Susan L. Bertram and Mary Claire Hannan) are to die for. Blessed be! Show notes: Don't duct tape your boobs like Blaire did in the '90s...use Nue instead. Listen to our Mi Vida Loca episode.

The Witches (2020)
Are you in the mood for some grotesque glamour? Well, you’re in luck, because our latest episode is about the reboot of Roald Dahl’s The Witches!

Joanna Johnston (Who Framed Roger Rabbit?, Death Becomes Her) is the designer behind these bewitching looks. Listen to our witch episodes here: Practical Magic (1998) The Craft (1996) Witches of Eastwick (1987) The Love Witch (2016) Teen Witch (1989) Hocus Pocus (1993) For visuals of the costumes, follow us on Instagram at @fishnetflixpod DM or email your movie requests at firstname.lastname@example.org!

This week we have, maybe one of the most on brand movies ever, In Fabric. A surreal horror film, with costume design by Jo Thompson, about an "artery-red gown" that transforms the lives of the wearer. We loved it but nothing prepared us for the gowns home, the sales people, the twists, or that mannequin scene. You can hear the shock in our voices BUT everyone should absolutely see In Fabric!

Sex and the City: The Movie
Fashion and Beauty Editor (and BOSS) Stephanie Montes joins us this week with her pick, Sex And The City: The Movie.

She took all 4 women and for the entire 6 seasons (and 2 movies) told their stories via fashion. SATC will always be remembered as one of the most fashionable show on TV. Follow Steph: https://www.instagram.com/stephanie_montes and her company: https://www.instagram.com/the_brand_nue/ A great article on Patricia Field: https://www.manrepeller.com/2018/05/patricia-field.html Roger the belt: https://bit.ly/2G6dyFP
