The idea of creating a quote-unquote ‘retro’ world isn’t all that appealing to me by itself.
I really like the retro look. My regular clothing, I like to always keep it classy and I like to kind of be more dressed up more of the time. I’m not really someone you see in sweatpants a lot.
I actually hope people don’t react to ‘Impossible’ in a way where they think it’s terribly retro. The plot needed to do what it needed to do.

The ’60s look wasn’t something I consciously chose, but in my late teens, I found myself styling my hair in a retro way and liking clothes – the shapes and silhouettes – that were from that era. They just reflected who I was.

My style icons are Lucille Ball for her bouffant hair and all the updos, James Dean for his rockabilly style – the denim and rolled-up T-shirt thing. And I am also inspired by Dita Von Teese and Gwen Stefani. Their style is retro, but it’s still very feminine at the same time.
