Why Julianne Moore in "Safe" Is Everyone's Social Distancing Mood Now

Curated via Twitter from W Magazine’s twitter account….

Moore, in her very first proper leading role, plays Carol White, a privileged second wife trapped amidst 1987 Suburban Los Angeles (even outside of the themes, the film is a perfect stylistic time capsule of a certain type of late ’80s taste in clothing and interior decorating; the teal sofa really does go so much better with the room than the black).

Julianne Moore started her fall press tour on a bright and breezy note at the 2014 Hamptons Film Festival with a flowy Balenciaga tunic, a Christopher Kane lace skirt, Reed Krakoff pumps, and a Proenza Schouler clutch.

The bright Dries van Noten dress that Moore wore to “The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 1” London photo call was a welcome surprise, as the actress often favors dark, monochromatic looks.

Though fans of the film point out that it touches on numerous themes of modern life (there are correlations to AIDS, feminism, predatory self-help mumbo jumbo, and the loneliness of privileged suburban life, for sure), the film resonates especially right now because it asks "What’s worse: a mysterious disease or the stress of trying to protect yourself?

In addition, Friedman, Beth Grant (best known for her "commitment to sparkle motion" moment from Donnie Darko) shows up as the leader of a seminar, Jessica Harper, the lead of the original Suspiria, plays a fellow Wrenwood patient, and Kate McGregor-Stewart (most recently she played Cyrus’s personal aide on Scandal) is great as a Wrenwood administrator who, at first, seems warm but is ultimately cold as the rest.

Though it was nearly identical to her London premiere look, Moore’s white Balenciaga dress-and-sandal combo did not disappoint. At the L. A. premiere of “The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 1,” Moore reached her full glam potential.

For the AFI Fest premiere of “Still Alice,” Moore accented her black Louis Vuitton dress with a pair of textured tights and monogrammed boots, proving that she could teach a class in A-list layering.
