"Clothes in Film" is a series of articles in Interview Magazine which "explore iconic looks from film and television that have stayed in our minds years after they first hit the silver screen".

Featured this week in the Clothes in Film series was "PHOTOGRAPHER SLIM AARONS WAS THE UNLIKELY INSPIRATION FOR WEDDING CRASHERS".

The piece focuses on an interview with Wedding Crashers costume designer Denise Wingate and explores "how she channeled [Slim Aaron's] ritzy prints into the creation of a whopping eight weddings worth of costumes". Aaron's photos of "upscale, West Palm Beach" lifestyles inspired Denise, as she "wanted this movie to be very classic, so if you watched it ten or 15 years after it was made it would still look contemporary."

Slim Aarons (1916–2006) was among his generation’s most influential photographers, and is best known for his photographs of socialites and celebrities. His work appeared often in Life and Town & Country and has been the subject of several books.

Interested in seeing some of Slim's work that inspired Denise and the lavish and endlessly contemporary wardrobe from Wedding Crashers? Check out these stunning Slim Aarons photography collections from Abrams Books:
