Anna Karenina....







 "Anna Karenina" hits select theatres today...Leading up to the premiere I've been seeing a lot of beautiful images from the film, base off the novel by Russian writer Leo Tolstoy, set in 19th century Russian high society...This drama consist of romance, scandal, and great costumes by JACQUELINE DURRAN...plus the jewels were provided by Chanel, which was the icing on the cake for the rich fabrics that Keira wears in the film...
