Confessions of a Shopaholic Style
Pink in a Sea of Black
Known for her brilliant work on Sex and the City and Ugly Betty, costume designer Patricia Field brought life to the wardrobe of shopaholic Rebecca Bloomwood (played by Isla Fisher). "I chose this pink so she would stand out and framed her with people who were all in the same color," says Field. "That was my method throughout the whole movie. I wanted her to jump out."

For drinks and dancing, Rebecca takes off her Vivienne Westwood jacket to reveal a bright green Louis Vuitton bustier. "She wears tons of color," says Pat Field. "She's a shopaholic so she needs variety; she couldn't wear black or basic pieces."
Belles of the Ball
When attending a ball (with "long legs Alicia" (Leslie Bibb)), Rebecca wears an outfit she already owns in an attempt to be more frugal. Rebecca fills her closet with "a mix of designers, trendy Japanese clothes, and vintage pieces," says Pat Field. "And she has tons of Christian Louboutin heels."
"I love this little outfit," says Pat Field of the get-up Rebecca wears to clean out her closet. "I did this look on Sarah Jessica Parker once in Sex and the City--it's sexy and cute." Of all the sky-high shoes she wears, Isla Fisher says, "It was my idea to keep her in heels all the time because something about tottering in heels is always funny to me."
Making Ends Meet
Rebecca's parents (Joan Cusack and John Goodman) try to help mend their daughter's spending woes. Did Isla Fisher relate to her character's shopping and clothing choices? "No, but that's the fun of acting-you get to dress up and be someone you're not. I'm much more conservative and casual than Becky Bloomwood."
