Romeo + Juliet Introduced By Olivia Kim says
Join us on Tuesday, October 11th as we kick off our Fashion & Film series with Nordstrom's Olivia Kim, who will introduce Baz Luhrmann's adaptation of William Shakespeare's Romeo and Juliet.

Flamboyant Aussie auteur Baz Luhrmann transposes the Bard's timeless tragedy to the gangsta's paradise of present-day "Verona Beach," California in this teen-dream '90s classic, where handguns replace rapiers and Radiohead and Garbage serve as minstrels. Recently dumped, the lovesick Montague prodigal Romeo (Leonardo DiCaprio) dons a disguise to crash the house party of his family's sworn foes the Capulets. He promptly falls for his enemy's dulcet daughter Juliet (Claire Danes), and the two begin an impassioned but ill-fated romance. Luhrmann and production designer Catherine Martin bust out some over-the-top SoCal style for their revamped R+J, garbing Romeo and his family-feuding gangbangers in loose-fitting Hawaiian and dress shirts with baggy black jeans, while straight-haired siren Danes adorns her elegantly simple Prada frock with angel wings.
