Fashion Expert Fact Checks Moulin Rouge's Wardrobe | Glamour

Fashion historian Raissa Bretaña fact checks the historical accuracy of costumes and wardrobe in the hit drama musical film Moulin Rouge. She analyzes how Director Baz Luhrmann and costume designers Catherine Martin and Angus Strathie created a mashup between the fashions of the turn of the 20th century with the turn of the 21st century. Raissa also explores how the film adapted three iconic looks for the two main characters: Satine and Christian.
