This picture is pretty small, which is a shame, but it does get a point across. Even at this distance, the cut of Alan Rickman's suit is clearly shown to be impeccable. I saw this production of 'Private Lives' on Broadway with my own star-filled eyes, and there was a point at which Rickman stands on that balcony with his back to the audience for quite a time. From the shoulders down to the waist, from the hips, somewhat narrower that the shoulders, up to the waist, his frame was two perfectly interesecting triangles. You can see it here. Good Tailoring = Sex on 2 Legs. The designer who costumed the show said something along the lines of "You could put Alan Rickman in a plastic trash bag, and if it was tailored properly, he'd look spectacular." Amen. All hail Saville Row.
To commemorate the 100th Brit a Day, the cast will be dressed to the nines this week--or at least dressed as well as I would like them to be. It is my blog, after all.
