The girls wandered amid the racks of patterns, each containing the tissue paper outline of a dream dress, but in the end it made no difference which pattern they chose. Mrs. Lisbon added an inch to the bust lines and two inches to the waists and hems, and the dresses came out as four identical shapeless sacks.
The Lisbon girls of “The Virgin Suicides” based on the book by Jeffrey Eugenides, brought to life by former actress and costume designer Sofia Coppola.
Costume designer Nancy Steiner of “Lost in Translation” and “Little Miss Sunshine” keeps things modest and virginal for the ’70s setting with nightgowns and gauzy white dresses. Here, the Lisbon girls are pictured in their outfits from the homecoming dance.

Hall: Jon Hamm was sleeping with Sam Mendes.
W: Wow. Does a sex tape exist?
Hamm: Does it? He directed it. It’s beautiful.
"He directed it. It’s beautiful."
