Vintage Fashion as Props in American Hustle Movies Scenes April 19 2022

American Hustle wins big at the 2014 Golden Globes and we’d like to think we had something to do with it….
Ok so maybe not exactly, but did you know that 17 Vintage Designer pieces from Rice and Beans Vintage were handpicked to be featured in scenes in American Hustle? When I was approached last year to rent pieces of late 1970‘s Vintage Designer clothing for the latest David O. Russell project, I jumped on it and I’m glad I did!

By now I’m sure you have seen or at least heard of the latest film from the highly regarded director David O. Russell, American Hustle. Not only did American Hustle take home three awards at the 2014 Golden Globes but let’s face it, the movie is serious eye candy for vintage designer lovers everywhere. The majority of the vintage clothing worn in American Hustle was by the main characters played by Amy Adams, Jennifer Lawrence, Bradley Cooper, Christian Bale, and Jeremy Renner were carefully constructed reproductions of period late 1970’s pieces.

In several scenes including the “Cosmopolitan Magazine Scene” and the “Dry Cleaner Scene” David O. Russel wanted authentic late 70’s Vintage Designer clothing to be part of the set.
