31 Days of Costume - October 10, 2012 - Christine's Think of Me gown circa 2004 movie

Unfortunately the 2004 Phantom of the Opera has a few flaws, however I did enjoy some of the costumes from the movie. I love Christine's Think of Me gown from the movie. This gown would have also made a good wedding dress since it's predominately white with some gold accents. To me this gown says starts out subtle then wows you once your eyes travel to the bottom of the gown. If we want to get into potential symbolism here we could say it's representative of Christine's performance, since traditionally many Christine's I've seen tend to perform the song in a low nervous voice at the beginning, then become vocally stronger as the song continues finishing off with a tremendous vocal wow factor by the end of the song.
