What's not to love about a film which is in essence about greed, deception, money, power and murder taking place between two mobster friends, a trophy wife and all over a gambling empire! Okay maybe it is just me who is beguiled by the LA glamour and Sharon Stone's costumes.
Casino, (1995) directed by Martin Scorsese, it is Sharon Stone's finest performance as an actress and earned her an Oscar nomination as best actress in a leading role. She did however win the Golden Globe for her role as Ginger McKenna. Scorsese direction is sublime with the contrast between the glitz of Vegas and the cruelty of the mob related operators behind the scenes.
In true Gangster movie fashion the clothes are all important for the men and the women. Robert De Niro is immaculate in his pale pink matching shirt and tie ensemble but Stone is immaculately styled in high glamour 70s outfit by the costume team of John Dunn and Rita Ryack.
It's a gripping film with all the usual machismo and ruinous living that befalls the gangster lifestyle but as a fashion inspiration the high glamour of Ginger is a great look as an alternative to the demur sophistication of classical Hollywood stars Audrey Hepburn and Grace Kelly
