Boardwalk Empire.

Have you been watching Boardwalk Empire? It's a recent HBO drama, set in Prohibition era Atlantic City. Martin Scorsese filmed the pilot and it features a cocky young Al Capone, handsome Italian and Irish American gangsters and their beautiful wives and mistresses, all costumed to perfection. Steve Buscemi plays the enigmatic treasurer of Atlantic City and Kelly Macdonald is understated and radiant as an Irish immigrant, struggling to find her way in a corrupt city. And again, the costumes are just so lush, you vintage mavens will love the hats, dresses, hair, makeup...


The men's costumes are impeccable too. Check out this interview with the costume designers from Esquire.

  2. Yes! We've recorded every one so far. How handsome is Jimmy? However, I must close my eyes whenever Mr. Buscemi has a make-out scene. Great new series though!

  4. Oh I've missed this, or maybe we aren't getting it in NL yet (often a good few months behind the UK, and even longer than the US). Looks great.
