It’s official, I’m a “fit” nerd.
I saw the movie Inception over the weekend (which is a great movie by the way), but one thing really bugged the hell out of me. All this blogging and obsessing and shopping and altering has infiltrated my brain so much, that as I sat there sitting in a room full of people enthralled by the story line, all I could think was…
“What bad fit!”
This is not a still from the movie, but this is what she wore in one of the scenes. Now, am I crazy, or is that suit jacket a big ol’ mess?
My main problems with it are in the collar. Look how much room is between the collar and the back of her neck. A properly fitting jacket should sit flush along the back of the neck. The jacket has pitched backward, which means there is too much fabric back there. I’ve had this exact same thing happen to me with jackets before. Also look at how raised the lapel is. This should be flat against her chest. And look at the fit in the bust. Too tight? All that creasing around the bust is distracting right?
My guess is the wardrobe stylists could not find a jacket that fit her well, and instead took one that was too big and took it in. They skipped over the collar (which I imagine is hard to alter), and instead focused their efforts on taking in the sides…but way too much. I also wish they had slimmed the upper arm on this suit, as that is distracting me too.
This only proves that even petite celebrities with expensive clothes and stylists have a hard time finding good fit.
