This nostalgic Hollywood musical starring Ryan Gosling and Emma Stone is one of the most colourful displays of filmography to hit our screens for some time, so naturally the team at Colour Me Beautiful were keen to get front row seats to see it as soon as it opened last week!
From the opening scene where four aspiring actresses shimmy and sing, each dressed in a different brightly-coloured dress, through to our heroine carrying her bright blue heels around in her oversized red tote bag, colour is everywhere! The result? You watch the film and you feel fabulous!
It is no secret that colour has a powerful effect on our senses and on our mood. In a recent article The Telegraph reported that the costume designer for La La Land, Mary Zophres, intentionally utilised the power of the colour yellow (as seen on Emma Stone on promotional posters for the film) to make viewers feel great about her character. After all, yellow is an optimistic colour, reminding us of sunshine; so its sure to put a smile on our faces when we see it and trigger positive associations.
As the film goes on we see Mia (Emma Stone) in an array of bold hues; emerald green for a romantic date with the dashing Sebastian (Ryan Gosling), primrose yellow for a show biz pool party, Chinese blue for a night out with her girlfriends. When she’s not wearing a brightly coloured dress she is carrying a true red tote bag everywhere she goes, injecting energy and vibrancy to the screen.
We’re packing our bags with our most vibrantly coloured clothing and planning a move to La La Land – care to join us?
