The latest film recreation of Tennessee Williams's play, The Loss of a Teardrop Diamond, starring Bryce Dallas Howard as troubled southern belle Fisher Willow, drips with debutante glamour and French-American flare. The film's costume designer, Christi Karvonides-Dushenko, who says she was inspired by everything from Elizabeth Taylor to 1920s Sears Roebuck catalogs, told us that "Diamond was a costume designer's dream!"

Among her favorite pieces in the film are Willow's cotillion gown, which she discovered in a friend's private collection and immediately sketched, and, of course, the custom-made teardrop diamond earrings inspired by a pair belonging to Marie Antoinette. But filming wasn't without a few hiccups: "We filmed down south and the humidity was so intense... the vintage clothing was so delicate, it would disintegrate!" The Loss of a Teardrop Diamond is in theaters now.
