Kristin Chenoweth can do it all—sing, dance, and act—and for her latest film, Family Weekend (out today), she plays another kind of do-it-all—a worker-bee mom who is so busy, her daughter (played by Olesya Rulin) decided to take her hostage in order to spend more time together. “This is someone who wants it all, a woman who enjoys success, but is also the breadwinner and she’s also not the best mom,” Chenoweth told when we caught up with her in New York City last week. One thing that helped Chenoweth get into the Power Woman mindset? The wardrobe, a mix of Tory Burch, Banana Republic, Stella McCartney, Julie Lindsay, and even pieces pulled from her own closet. “When you do independent film, budgets are very closely monitored and watched, but I had some things in my closet that I thought were her, and ‘Why go spend the money if they don’t need to?’” she noted. “They would’ve, but I had it all that I wanted to wear.” No wonder this movie mom is so stylish!
