27 Dresses with Liz Von Hoene
The era of Netflix has made it easy to get lost in nostalgia. At a moment’s notice, you can have all of your favorite childhood movie and television classics at your fingertips. For some, this means watching the same genre of movies over and over. For many millennials, and even some baby boomers, fans of rom-coms or not, 27 Dresses is at the top of that list. In her latest collaboration with Entertainment Weekly, Photographer Liz Von Hoene shot an exclusive reunion with the cast of the eleven-year-old romantic comedy.
The movie, starring Katherine Heigl, is the tale of a single bridesmaid who has been in 27 weddings and counting. Blessed with incredible work ethic, Katherine’s character, Jane, comes to work for the man of her dreams. Her sister, played by Malin Akerman, also falls for Jane’s boss, and the two set a wedding date of their own. Tortured by the idea of losing her ideal mate to her sister, Jane develops an elaborate plan to confess her feelings before realizing that she was falling for James Marsden’s character the whole time. The happy ending of the movie leaves viewers craving more of the story, so the eleven-year reunion with Liz could not have come at a better time.
Entertainment Weekly brought the group together in Malibu with Liz Von Hoene to capture some of that nostalgia and to give lovers of the movie a look into what the characters might look like and be wearing today. The final product is a series of portraits and images that are the clear result of a fun and lively photo shoot with old friends. Bringing the stars and old friends together also meant bringing up the inevitable conversation - they would all love a sequel.
