Problem: It’s a common dilemma: you see an outfit in a movie and you HAVE to have it. I know the feeling. Here are my tips for tracking down movie items you’re coveting:
*Determine which film studio made the movie. For all things film related, my first source of information is imdb.com. My second source is Google.
*Contact the studio and ask for the wardrobe department. This is usually as simple as Googling the studio name and obtaining the main phone number.
*Once you reach wardrobe, tell them which film you’re calling about, describe the item in question and ask if they can tell you which designer it came from.
This method helped us find the Nathalie Saphier terry skirt and Juicy Couture hoodie Cameron Diaz wore in the movie “In Her Shoes,” which we covered in our December 26, 2005 issue. But everything has its season, and the wardrobe logs at Twentieth Century Fox are no different. They only keep them on file for a limited amount of time after a film wraps up. So don’t dillydally. You can also find many must-have items at premiereprops.com, “the worlds largest entertainment memorabilia store.” eBay and Miramax auction off authentic pieces worn in films for charity. If the ladies on Desperate Housewives or the daytime soap diva’s dresses impress you, ‘shop the scene’ at abctvstore.com.
