Carol Beadle, Runaways Style

Revised Post

More and more photos of Kristen Stewart and lil' Dakota Fanning in their Joan Jett / Cherie Currie garb will now be surfacing since The Runaways filming is underway. Just Jared has lots of new snaps of these two costumes pictured left. Most film sites won't tell you this when they get costume shots -- because they don't care? I care. Oh how I care. I have love for you Behind the Scenes People o' Hollywood! -- but the costumes here are by Carol Beadle. She has a very short film resume (most recently, stylist work on Max Payne) but these costumes look great, don't they? Yay.

Obviously trendsetting will occur. Late 70s girl rocker chic coming at'cha on city streets soon. Or at least by the film's release date in 2010, TBA.

Here's a photo of the band below [via]. The cast also features Scout Taylor-Compton as Lita "Kiss Me Deadly" Ford (she has five movies nearly ready for release. Eeep. I guess she's counting on a big year), Stella Maeve as Sandy West, Alessandra Torresani as Jackie Fox (Maybe. There seems to be some confusion. She's not listed on IMDb and was originally rumored to be playing Lita Ford) and Alia Shawkat (Maeby from Arrested Development!) as Micki Steele who went on to become one of The Bangles. I haven't heard any confirmation on whether less major members of the band like Peggy Foster, Vickie Blue or Laura McAllister are in the movie.


If I were a somebody in Hollywood I'd be thinking about this movie very carefully and I'd be pitching an epic GO-GOs biopic as a chaser for 2012. They were HUGE and their story has a surplus of drama and all the stuff that Hollywood requires for a musical biopic (aka hit songs and cocaine).

Ginnifer Goodwin for Belinda Carlisle? Get up and go Hollywood. She's nearly too old and svelte for it now.

Ginnifer might've made a perfect Belinda in her more cherubic days

Oops. Off topic. Where were we?

You can read more about Carol Beadle at her site. She's worked with Runaways director Floria Sigismondi several times on music videos as well as Sophie Muller, Annie Lennox's bestie, who has made some of the best videos ever. I'll leave you with a famous Sigismondi/Beadle collaboration, Xtina's "Fighter", and a reel of Beadle's work from 2007. Enjoy.

I thought I recognized clips from "Mr Brightside" in that reel - prob. the "most famous" for it's very "Moulin Rouge" look.

yeah Mr Brightside (great song) is one of her videos.

Ugh, the pinstripe vest and cream silk neckerchief combo looks SO good. I need that shit in my life right now. Brb, thrifting.

I think Gennifer Goodwin could play the young Marsha Mason instead!

NATHANIEL R said...

Marsha, is your life exciting enough for a biopic?

Fernando Moss said...

Wow, those costumes really look great... And maybe Dakota will finally have her shot at an Oscar...

Marsha Mason said...

As opposed to whom? Coco Chanel, Joan Jett, and QE2?

Marsha Mason (aka Mrs. Neil Simon, aka Mrs. "Owns an Herbal Medicine Shop and Does What She Wants Now") has bowel movements more interesting than that trash!

I'm here to love on Floria because she is full of awesome. Also, Toressani is not in this project anymore, and Alia Shawkat is playing the bassist, a composite character named "Robin", not Micki Steele.

La Lohan as belinda, could work?
