Did you recognize this wedding dress from Wandavision?
While most of the costumes in episode one of Wandavision were inspired by TV sitcoms of the late 1950s and very early 1960s, like I Love Lucy and The Dick Van Dyke Show, Wanda’s wedding dress was actually a reference to a Hollywood film: Funny Face from 1957 starring Audrey Hepburn. This dress was by Givenchy and is easily recognizable from it’s full tea-length skirt, cap sleeves, and dropped waist.
And I actually got to ask the costume designer of Wandavision, Mayes Rubeo, about this choice myself in an interview for the Costume Designer’s Guild! You can check that out on YouTube now!
