“Possessionista have you seen Pitch Perfect? Lots of cute clothes but I especially want the ID of the hot pink studded top that Brittany Snow wears near the beginning of the movie. Any clue? Thanks Mindy”
Pitch Perfect may be the greatest movie ever made.
And I say that without any sarcasm. It’s heartwarming, funny and has a soundtrack that could make anyone dance. It’s like Bring it On set to current hits. Plus a seemingly endless performance of Ace of Base’s I Saw The Sign.
Anna Kendrick doing David Guetta is all kinds of awesome – especially since Titanium is kinda my jam too – but what you all were more intrigued by was Britney Snow as Chloe’s nailhead studded top.
Some internet sleuths have found a super similar version by – wait for it – Madonna’s material girl line at Macys. But before you go opening a credit card for that additional 15% off, you may want to hear this.
Costume designer Salvador Perez – who is also responsible for Mindy Kaling’s retro-inspired Mindy Project style– tells me that it’s just not so.
“I got it at a boutique in baton rouge, in October of 2011, it was expensive, like $275.00, but ironically, Madonna did a knock off , exactly like it for her Macys Material girl line, for like $38.00,” Sal confided in me. ” If you find it, please tell that story,, so they don’t think i put Madonna on my actresses, lol.”
We may be living in a material world, but when it comes to the ladies of Pitch Perfect – they are not material girls.
