The Giver Inspired Costumes

The Giver, based on the Lois Lowry novel of the same name, stars Meryl Streep, Katie Holmes, Jeff Bridges, and Alexander Skarsgard, with costume design by Diana Cilliers (Chronicle, the upcoming film The Red Tent).  These paparazzi photos on set show the dystopian wear in a place where everyone has a set role and life is seemingly perfect.  To show this, Cilliers has chosen white, a color that represents purity, and at the same time, often, lack of self-expression.  The clothes are very structured but not hugging the body, and very little skin is showing.  What I like about these costumes is that they could easily be seen walking down the runway for a crisp, modern designer who designs for working, driven women.  It’s a very “cool” take on dystopian wear, but it still brings home the point that these people are supposed to follow the rules and not stand out.
