Pop culture obsessives writing for the pop culture obsessed.

Once Upon A Time In Hollywood takes great pains to capture exactly what Los Angeles looked like around the time of the Sharon Tate murders, down to what movies were playing at the Cinerama Dome that week. The film’s set decorators, props teams, and CGI masters all worked to create locations that fit the bill, and Arianne Phillips, the movie’s costume designer, worked with her team on sourcing vintage clothes and creating new pieces to assure everyone looked right, from Brad Pitt’s Cliff Booth to a background cameraman shooting one of Rick Dalton’s hokey westerns. The A.V. Club talked to Phillips about her work on the project, and what pieces she really felt screamed 1969.

Once Upon A Time In Hollywood is available now digitally, and will be out on Blu-Ray/DVD December 10.
