Here’s Every Suit Worn by Robert De Niro in Casino

When a movie as quality as Casino is made you can bet that the details of the film are going to be vast.  With a director like Martin Scorsese it’s not only a requirement but a necessity that attention be paid to the very last thread of fabric on each character, word they say, and action they make.  One of the most amazing things about the movie that we don’t realize had such precision is the wardrobe.  In an excerpt from an old article in the LA Times we can learn a bit more:

From costumes to casting, the look of “Casino” was crucial to Scorsese, a director renowned for his dazzling visual sense. For this three-hour portrait of the underbelly of Las Vegas, he hired more non-actors–regular folks–than he had for any previous film. Casting directors combed the streets of New York and New Jersey to round up background players and secondary characters–each of whom had to be outfitted. And since no one thinks of the 1970s as “period,” says costume designer Rita Ryack, the challenge was greater than anyone had assumed.

More than 7,000 extras–from go-go girls to hotel clerks–had to be clothed at a cost of $150 to $200 each, much higher than the Hollywood norm. And, though the 30-plus outfits worn by hustler-turned-trophy-wife Ginger McKenna (Sharon Stone) were a mix of vintage and custom-made, all of Rothstein’s 70 costumes–not to mention those worn by Joe Pesci, Don Rickles, Alan King, Kevin Pollak and James Woods–had to be “built” from scratch.
