Zoom in on Boom!

Have you ever seen Boom!? John Waters has called it one of the ultimate "failed art" film, and it's right up there for snagging the title of most critically disappointing work in the history of cinema.

But let me tell you, the cinematography and the costumes are breath taking. And no wonder, since many of Elizabeth Taylor's dresses were designed by the Kaiser, himself, Mr. Karl Lagerfeld.

She really is a vision, and through nearly all of the film, is dressed head to toe in white. The most stunning, of course, is her crazy kabuki costume, outfitted in head dress and all.
