Confessions of a Shopaholic Review: “Confessions of a Shopaholic” is like a mannequin dressed up in a Valentino dress, accented with a Chanel Belt, standing tall with Gucci boots, and a Ferragamo bag to attract you into stepping into the store. Isla Fisher played her character, Rebecca Bloomwood, so well and she executed her physical comedy scenes quite rollicking. Rebecca Bloomwood is a journalist who’s an impulsive buyer that faces a huge debt because of her compulsive shopping.
From the Christian Louboutin slingbacks, Zac Posen dress, Marc Jacobs jacket, a Miu Miu skirt, and Gucci bag, I give two thumbs up for Patricia Fields! Once again, the designer for “The Devil Wears Prada” and “Sex and the City” movie successfully enveloped the entire movie with glamorous, eye candy, high fashion clothes and accessories in the dull, gray New York City. Rebecca Bloomwood was clothed with bright, attractive colors that showed her vivacious personality.
Is there love in store for Rebecca Bloomwood? She is being linked with a business journalist, Luke Brandon. The Armani and the Prada suave of Hugh Dancy’s character, Luke Brandon, seems to lure Rebecca Bloomwood into him. Ironic isn’t it, to have a movie like this in this time of economy recession. Despite the staggering credit card debts by reckless shopping, Sophie Kinsella’s “Confessions of a Shopaholic” sashays its way down the catwalk to strike a pose and kill the lights! “Confessions of a Shopaholic” is an excellent film, enjoy it.
