Russell Crowe in Gladiator. You wanna call this a dress?
Let’s be honest, if you saw a man in the street (or anywhere for that matter) wearing a dress and sandals, you’d probably question his masculinity, right? That is, unless that man was Russell Crowe. Our Rusty pretty much wears this very outfit in Ridley Scott’s Gladiator (2000), and yet Maximus is about as manly as a man can get. Which begs the question: do clothes really maketh the man?
In ‘Dust, Leather and Masculinity: Dressing Men on Film’, an expert panel – including Anna Borghesi, costume designer for Romper Stomper (1992), Dr Mark Nicholls from the University of Melbourne, Paola Di Trocchio from the NGV and Jake Wilson, film reviewer for The Age – will unpick the role of costume design in defining male characters on screen. It’s part of our ongoing Hollywood Costume Events Program, a collection of films, talks and workshops that takes you beyond the exhibition.
Be allured by our last ‘Up Late’ event which pays tribute to the Golden Age of Hollywood, or get an insider’s look at Hollywood Costume with our Curator Tour. Take a squiz into a star’s wardrobe in ‘Elizabeth Taylor: The Dressing of a Screen Icon’ or pick your style corner in ‘Hepburn vs Hepburn’, two talks in ‘The Icons’ series.
Or, if you’d rather spend the day wearing your undies on the outside, there’s always our fun and free ‘Superhero Day’. Indeed, there’s something for everyone.
Our Hollywood Costume Events Program continues through July and August.
