Costume designers are the unsung heroes of the movie industry. You can’t get completely immersed in a story if the movies in any given film aren’t believable. Also, costumes often reflect the inner attitudes and feelings of characters. When costume designers do their job right, their work is almost invisible. You don’t notice it unless you’re looking for it, and that’s how it should be.
The costume designers on this list made a few missteps. Keep reading to see all of the most glaring costume mistakes in your favorite movies.
The Other Boleyn Girl
This is one costume “mistake” that may have actually been done on purpose. Back in the 1500s, women wore French hoods that completely covered their hair. The hoods in this movie are pulled back so we can clearly see the tops of Natalie Portman and Scarlett Johanson’s heads.
It’s very possible that filmmakers wanted us to see Natalie and Scarlett’s hair so we could identify one as the blonde one and one as the brunette.
