Jennifer Lawrence, Bradley Cooper, Christian Bale and Amy Adams flaunt fabulous fashions from the late '70s and early '80s in director David O. Russell's American Hustle, and we're going behind the scenes with the film's costume designer to see how they pulled it off! (Hint: lots of double-stick tape). Watch the video!
American Hustle is based on the true story of Irving Rosenfeld (played by a barely recognizable Bale), a notorious financial con artist from the Bronx who, along and his Brit mistress/partner-in-crime Sydney (Adams), is forced to work with out-of-control FBI agent Richie DiMaso (Cooper) to expose other con artists, mobsters and politicians -- including volatile New Jersey mayor Carmine Polito (Jeremy Renner). Lawrence rounds out the cast as Rosenfeld's live-wire Long Island housewife, flaunting a loose-cannon demeanor that threatens to derail the entire operation.
In theaters now, American Hustle co-stars Louis C.K., Jack Huston, Elisabeth Rohm and Michael Pena.
