That Dress: Amber Heard in The Informers

The only feeling better than being naked is wearing an amazing dress.

If you have any intentions of watching The Informers (2008), there's only one thing you need to know: Amber Heard is naked in it. A lot. Like, 80% of the time, I'd say.

Whilst some men (and women) would jump for joy at that fact, I was rather disappointed. Here we have the perfect opportunity to take a gorgeous actress and dress her in the finest that the 80s' had to offer, but what did we get instead?


Not that I blame costume designer, Sophie De Rakoff, for that. Christie (Heard) was probably naked the whole time in the book (shame on you again, Bret Easton Ellis). The very little she wore was rather spectacular though. One sequined party dress and one funeral dress.

De Rakoff most likely would have provided some amazing looks, if given the chance. Though not having worked on anything too legendary, she did manage to gift us with the looks in Legally Blonde (2001), Legally Blonde 2: Red, White & Blonde (2003), In Her Shoes (2005) and This Means War (2012). Seems like she has a knack for dressing Reese Witherspoon.

Let's hope Amber does better in the future. Because, let's face it, which would you prefer? Amber dying on the beach in a bikini, or laying by the beach, covered in chic?
