Ever After: A Cinderella Story – S2 Episode 29
Our Fairy-Tale romance month wouldn’t be complete without a classic Cinderella story! This week we are watching the 1998 American romantic drama film inspired by the Cinderella fairy tale, Ever After. Listen as our cohosts discuss the many French Renaissance-era costumes designed by Jenny Beavan. Topics include the famous winged dress worn by Drew Barrymore, Anjelica Huston as Baroness Rodmilla de Ghent, Leonardo da Vinci’s wardrobe, and the various red flags of Prince Henry. You better listen before you turn into a pumpkin!
