The 411 on Blake Lively and Kristen Stewart's New Movie Wardrobe

Erin Fitzpatrick

When your job involves Karl Lagerfeld giving you free rein to rummage through the Chanel archives, you know you've got it good. Suzy Benzinger's role as the costume designer for Café Society, coming out in theaters tomorrow, happens to tick that enviable box. But, as she is quick to point out, there's still a lot that people don't understand about her seemingly perfect gig.

Starring Kristen Stewart, Blake Lively, Jesse Eisenberg, and Steve Carell, Café Society is set in 1930s Hollywood and features tons of sumptuous fashion inspired by the decade. While Stewart's character is outfitted in sweet, girly outfits—think headbands, printed dresses, crop tops, and socks-with-sandals combos—Lively's character is a bit more grown-up and glamorous in plunging gowns and feathered embellishments.

We chatted with Benzinger to get the scoop on Lively's and Stewart's amazing costumes, what she learned about '30s style, and more.
