The Most Eye-Catching Fashion Moments in Kacey Musgraves' 'Star-Crossed' Film

The film of the same name, as well as the highly anticipated album

The Most Eye-Catching Fashion Moments in Kacey Musgraves’ Film “Star-Crossed”. Kacey Musgraves has returned to the scene with her fifth album, “Star-Crossed,” which includes songs about heartbreak as well as striking fashion moments in the accompanying film directed by Bardia Zeinali.

The film of the same name, as well as the highly anticipated album, was released on Friday. The 50-minute video is a fantasy retelling of her relationship with ex-husband Ruston Kelly, whom she divorced in September 2020, focusing on the emotions she felt before, during, and after the divorce.

Musgraves and Kelly started dating in mid-2016 and got engaged in December of that year. The couple married in Tennessee in October 2017. In a joint statement, the couple stated that “it just simply didn’t work out” when they filed for divorce last July.

It’s no secret that her relationship with Kelly is one of the album’s and film’s central themes.

The lack of a husband or male protagonist in the film, with Musgraves, dressed up as characters with no marital connection, such as a bride without a groom and a woman who resembles a Stepford wife.

Despite its emotional lyrics and depiction of heartbreak, the short film features a plethora of colours and stylish outfits, with some serving as an ode to the late 1990s and early 1990s. Eugene Levy from “Schitt’s Creek,” Victoria Pedretti from “You,” and Symone from “RuPaul’s Drag Race” all make appearances in the film.

The first scene, set to the song “Star-Crossed,” shows Musgraves dancing with other women                                                              in colorful outfits while wearing a costume wedding gown with puffed sleeves, a veil, and                                                          jewels on her brows. Musgraves walks toward the chapel featured in Quentin Tarantino’s hit                                                              2003 film “Kill Bill” at the end of the song.

The next song, “Simple Times,” features Musgraves dressed in a light blue turtleneck cropped                                                            sweater, a metallic blue skirt, baby blue socks, and blue loafer heels, alongside Pedretti,                                                        Symone, and Princess Nokia. The guest stars dress similarly, but in different colours

Baby pink, lavender, and hot pink are just a few examples.

The group shot of the four walking in the mall is reminiscent of Gianni Versace’s 1994 fall                                                    campaign, which was shot by Richard Avedon and featured supermodels Nadja Auermann,                                                          Cindy Crawford, Claudia Schiffer, Stephanie Seymour, Christy Turlington, and Bridget Hall.

The four women are then seen changing into matching ivory tweed Chanel two-piece suits                                                            while wearing masks and carrying medieval weapons in preparation for robbing a low-cost                                                            bridal store.

In “Good Wife,” Musgraves wears a dainty yellow floral midi dress and Prada’s signature                                                            white headband, joining other women who are expressionless as they go about their daily                                                        routine robotically, similar to the women depicted in Nicole Kidman’s film “The Stepford Wives.”

Musgraves is involved in a car accident later in the film, and her body is discovered in pieces.                                                      When the ambulance arrives, the EMTs pick up all of her body parts and place them on a                                                                  gurney before presenting her to the surgeon, played by Eugene Levy.

Levy and the nurses work together to revive her by fixing her broken heart, which was                                                        portrayed earlier in the scene through an X-ray. When she is put back together, she wears                                                              a metal bustier and silk maxi skirt as she is greeted by a black horse at the Los Angeles River.

The last song, “Gracias a la Vida,” is the final one in Musgraves’ album, and means “thanks                                                              to life” translated from Spanish. The song was originally written and performed by Violeta                                                          Parra, a Chilean singer who was part of the movement and genre called the Nueva Canción                                                            As she sings her rendition, Musgraves wears a red, flowing, tulle gown with her jet black                                                              hair down, completing the look with red lipstick.
