Fashion and Film explores the complex relationships between costume, fashion and popular film. Examining the ways in which costume and fashion are used to construct narrative and identity in contemporary film, this interdisciplinary study also explores how meanings flow on and off screen. What is the impact of celebrity and stardom on the audience's consumption of film? How does film costume interact with other media forms? Sarah Gilligan addresses these key questions using a cross-media analysis of film, advertising and digital media.

Based around case studies such as Pirates of the Caribbean, Shakespeare in Love, The Great Gatsby, Save the Last Dance, The Matrix trilogy and The Hunger Games: Catching Fire, together with stars such as Daniel Craig, Gwyneth Paltrow and Emma Watson, this book explores a broad range of film genres and fashion garments, from corsets to flowing coats, cosplay to mobile phones. Using close textual analysis, complex issues of eroticism, fabric fetishism and haptic pleasure, and key themes of gender, celebrity and sexuality, are clearly mapped onto cinematic clothing and the body. Fashion and Film is essential reading for students of fashion, film and media, cultural and gender studies.
