Style Inspiration: Amanda Seyfried from "In Time"

Amanda Seyfried as Sylvia Weis, in a velvet babydoll dress with a Peter Pan collar

I saw the Justin Timberlake movie In Time over the weekend, directed by Andrew Niccol (the man behind a similarly stylish sci-fi flick, Gattaca).  The movie's premise revolves around time as currency -- everyone stops aging at 25; after that, a person has only have one year left to live.  If they aren't 'rich,' they spend what little time they do have trying to somehow find enough time to prolong their lives.  It was an interesting idea with a lot of potential, and though entertaining, it wasn't anything amazing.  I think the thing that stood out to me the most were Amanda Seyfried's sexy costumes, the work of three-time Academy Award-winning designer Colleen Atwood (Chicago, Memoirs of a Geisha, Alice in Wonderland).  Atwood actually previously worked with Niccol on Gattaca.

The costumes were equal parts provocative and demure, with conservative necklines, but form-fitting figures.  There was also an interesting use of accessories, from gloves to bracelets, in order to conceal the timers on everyone's forearms.  I don't think Seyfried has ever looked better.  The only thing that bothered me was how obvious her wig was -- or the frequent, unexplained costume changes she had while on the lam with Timberlake.  I kept asking my boyfriend, "Where did that amazing coat come from?" or "How does she run in those heels?"

  2. I was wondering the same myself. I couldn't seem to find anything about the heels in my research. I know Colleen Atwood collaborated with Salvatore Ferragamo for Angelina Jolie's heels in "The Tourist," so not sure if she did something with another designer for this film. Whatever they are...they're fabulous!
