 I finally saw "Bob & Carol & Ted & Alice" over the weekend- it was a pleasant surprise I found on tv. I will watch anything with Natalie Wood, so I don't know why it took me so long to see it. I absolutely love watching films set in Los Angeles in the 60's & 70's.  The architecture and interior design is all so Slim Aarons-y....it just makes me swoon. So this is a satirical comedy set in the post hippie/ height of the sexual revolution era of the late 60's, starring Natalie Wood, Robert Culp, Dyan Cannon, and Elliott Gould. Pardon my occasionally blurry pictures...it's hard to get a good photo on the tv.

Natalie Wood looks impeccable as always, sporting some seriously fantastic bow ties and super sweet lingerie. Dyan Cannon looks so sweet and adorable with her perfectly polished wardrobe and bouffant ponytail tied up in a big bow. And well...the men, let's just say this wasn't the best era for men's fashion- it's a bit comical.

i love the clothing in this film. like you i adore films from the 60's and 70's for the costume design and production design. love.

i am so nervous that you rented that movie. haha. i need to see it again, it's been forever. i also worked on one called "she's so lovely" which was much better. but i only got supervisor credit even though the designer was fired the first week and i took over. that's a goodie though!

you have such great taste btw. love.
