Angelina Jolie’s Irene inspired fashion in “The Tourist”
Academy Award-winning costume designer Colleen Atwood looked to classic film noir glamour for inspiration in clothing Angelina Jolie’s character – Elise’s – costumes.
“That look was inspired by a dress designed by Irene [Lentz], who is a legendary costume designer,” Atwood says. “I took the basic idea and added some flair to contemporize it. The original had a jacket, but I really wanted something a little more luxurious, so I created the cashmere wrap. I’ve always loved a glove, and was filming in the land of fine gloves, so I used a fine suede glove to finish the look.”
