About the Book Changing the world is risky business. Jesus risked his life to make the world a better place. When was the last time you took a risk for the cause of Christ? If you are like most, it was not recently. As the saying goes, “The greater the risks the greater the rewards.” What if the biggest risk in life is not taking any risks at all for the cause of Christ? In God’s plan to make the world a better place, He unleashes us to be adventurous in our everyday lives. If your your life lacks adventure, then take the 40 day “Discipleship Dare” challenge and dare others to do the same. Jess J.

Overview When Marlene Dietrich makes her entrance in Alfred Hitchcock’s Stage Fright, the Dior dress she wears immediately draws the viewer’s attention-not because of its designer label, but owing to the dramatic blood stains ruining its stylish surface. Fashion in film goes far beyond glamorous costumes on glamorous stars, as Jonathan Faiers proves in Dressing Dangerously, a pioneering study of the “cinematic negative wardrobe” revealed in mainstream movies. The book emphasizes how problematic, even shocking depictions of dress, until now largely overlooked, play pivotal roles in shaping film narrative. Integrating fashion theory, film analysis, and literature, the insightful text investigates the ways cinema influences fashion and, conversely, how fashion speaks to film. The book also reveals how clothing, imbued with its own symbolic meaning, can be read much like a text; when used to provocative effect, for example, in films such as Villain, Leave Her to Heaven, and Casino, the stars’ costumes as well as their actions elicit a complex set of emotional responses. Dressing Dangerously brings together a wealth of illustrations, from glossy publicity photos featuring immaculately dressed stars to film stills that capture “dangerously” fashionable moments.
