On this day in 1985 the movie version of The Color Purple was released. Based on the novel by Alice Walker and directed by Steven Spielberg, the film has become a pop culture classic. Just as classic as the film, are the costumes worn in the movie. In honor of the movie's birthday here are few of my favorite designs from the movie and a few of my favorite clips. The movie received an Academy Award nomination for Best Costumes via Aggie Guerard Rodgers.
