Barbarella (1968)

I've recently been on this movie Craze!!! and I have to say, it's AmAZING!!!!!
One of my most favorite movies so far has been the 1968 film staring Jane Fonda as Barbarella; a space agent who has been sent on a mission to save the missing professor Durand-Durand.

Visually just so exciting, the costumes and set are wonderful. The 1960s designer Paco Rabanne -one of my favorites- worked on the costumes for this film. You can see his style come through, and the costumes really are wonderful. A hybrid of futuristic Femme-Fatal style with the iconic experimental materials of Rabanne, the combination works like a space-age dream; creating Fonda into the infamous 60s sci-fi icon.
