Emma is a masterpiece when it comes of costume and set Design. Texture, materials, pattern, accessories, colors, it’s a joy to watch!

I can vouch (unfortunately) that the tiny rag curls are indeed possible. My hair takes suggestion really well, so it's certainly not typical, but it's easy on certain hair types

@- untcuchable.mp4 I didn't like the story nor the costumes, but that is beside the point. Bridgerton is not meant to be accurate at all, so it doesn't really count as period drama, because honestly it could had happened in many other periods in history

Except Bridgerton is not period drama, is historical fantasy.

I agree with just about everything - but the men's collars were so high as to be laughably distracting!! They could barely turn their heads to the side and almost couldn't see over them! There are fashion plates and portraits of the dandiest of London dandies wearing their collars that high, but a country squire and vicar (Messrs Knightley and Elton, respectively) would not, I think, be quite so foppish. Mr. Churchill, maybe, although even he was mostly living a fairly retired life (not by choice) with his aunt.

My seamstress who created the Elizabeth I costume for my daughter to wear while portraying the monarch made a clone of the Emma pink jacket. It worked beautifully. Kristen, of Firetail Design, even used natural methods to dye the fabric in that gorgeous pink color!

I loved how ludicrously high and starched Mr. Elton’s collar was. It said so much about how his character viewed himself.

There is a famous portrait of First Lady Dolley Madison (wife of President James Madison) by the painter Bass Otis which features an rather queer looking collar of the sort we saw on Emma which you described, delightfully, as a "stempunk neck corset." I would post it here but BRdesk won't let me.

Would you be so kind to share with me the name of the music playing in the background? Also, I just watched the movie and loved it, but those curls looked like they were made following a "heatless curls with straws" tutorial on tiktok. Other than that, I would die to wear each and every costume worn by Anya Taylor-Joy

I feel like this is a good place to ask this question: Was Emma (2020) supposed to have a female narrator the whole way through the film, or did we just have it on the wrong setting on our TV? I watched it with my sister-in-law and mother-in-law and they said it was supposed to be that way...

The only part of that movie’s costumes that bugged me was that one scene where Emma is at the ball where she realizes she is in love with Knightly and she isn’t wearing gloves, I understand it is to build the romance but it has always bugged me.

I appreciated the acknowledgement that modern views are valid (sometimes.) That is, we aren't WRONG to think having all the accessories looks silly, because we're allowed to be influenced by the fashion of our time, just like historical people were influenced by the fashion of THEIR time. You shouldn't modernize your movie when it doesn't need it, but you're allowed to not like something "out of date" on a personal level.

i appreciate they budgeted enough money for hairpins so that all of the ladies old enough to wear their hair up, did. i think sone of the younger girls at Miss Goddard school had their hair down or braided but neither Emma nor Harriet had loose hair out in public. a major win.

I didn't like the movie much, though you and Ms. Banner have made me appreciate the clothing. However, I HATE Emma's stiff curls. They look like a yellow spring and take me out of the scene every time. I guess I'm still in love with Jeremy Northam's Mr. Bingley... But I can't understand how the dressmaking work was allowed to be undone by that really unnatural looking hairdo. It looks ugly and stiff both for our modern standards and theirs.

I haven't seen this version of Emma yet, because I don't see how anyone could improve on the Romola Garai version, but this analysis makes me want to check it out. The thing that most throws me off in period dramas is something they seem to have done with Emma in this newer version: her hair is a strange, yellowish, bleached blonde that doesn't exist in nature, and contrasts too sharply with her eyebrows and the undertones in her face. It looks like she's wearing a wig. I don't mind when they modernize the makeup a little, but that shellacked blonde hair is just awful! If they needed to make a brunette into a blonde, because Emma is traditionally blonde (though I can't remember if the book specifically stated that she had fair hair), couldn't they have toned it down to a shade approaching nature? Was this an intentional choice by the hair and makeup people?

In this outfits you look so much like a portrait I've seen of Adèle d'Osmond, comtesse de Boigne (a French court lady around 1820 who left very famous Memoirs), that's a strange experience to feel. I see in the real life, I mean living, moving, talking, a real person in 2020, but about whom I think "That's EXACTLY what they were seeing in 1820"... I can't really express how much this gives me a deep emotion.

Hi Karolina , I just watched your/this video for the second time after watching the Emma. movie. The first time was way back when you released it and I've to say, I enjoyed it both times very much. You achieved quite well to not spoil the movie, but also to hint at specific things for the ones' who watched the movie already. I enjoyed watching it this time a lot, too. Thanks for that! Besides that, just thank you, I enjoy watching many of your videos a lot. I hope everything goes well for you and that you can accomplish your wishes and dreams and I hope and wish you all the happiness possible. Warm greetings from Switzerland. PS: I also enjoyed watching the Emma. movie. :')

Dear karolina, thank you for yet another great video! One thing though... I don’t understand why the costume designer name is not credited at all in a lot of these kind of videos out there.. that is such an interesting and knowledgeable discussion on the costumes in this particular video , I think it only right that the costume designer gets a mention. Alexandra Byrne did a GREAT job, and she deserves it!

I really disliked this movie because, imo, you could’ve changed the whole goddamn movie but the plot and the slowly budding romance between Emma and Knightly is the core. The romance was absolutely AWFUL and the the dialogue was atrociously nonsensically boring in some areas! Great acting, looks beautiful. That’s all.

I guess in a way you could excuse Emma's tight curls as having been done by a toupee curler. Though I don't know if they would have been common during the regency period.

I love your attention to detail and general knowledge. I was wondering if you could do a video remarking the TV series "Versailles" which takes place between about 1655 and 1680. Have you seen it? I wonder about all the court dress and hair as well as the commoners. Please consider doing a video reviewing these.
