Diane Keaton will be lighting up the silver screen again on November 10, 2010, when her new film project, “Morning Glory,” debuts in select theaters. In “Morning Glory,” Keaton is paired with Rachel McAdams and screen veterans Harrison Ford and Jeff Goldblum. The film stars McAdams as a young producer given the somewhat tedious job of restoring a formerly stellar morning show to its glory days. Harrison Ford and Diane Keaton star as polar opposites who exchange barbs both on air and off. Picture the “Today” show if Matt Lauer and Meredith Viera were oil and vinegar, respectively. The movie looks to have great promise and with the team behind the mega-hit “The Devil Wears Prada” backing it, “Morning Glory” could be a runaway success.
Diane Keaton is no stranger to success as she was the ultimate female film star of the late 1970s. In the earlier part of the decade she did a few TV show spots, including an appearance on Rod Serling’s “Twilight Zone” follow-up, “Night Gallery.” In her episode she played a nurse with an uncontrollable temper, quite the contrast with the Woody Allen roles that still make up the most recognizable part of Keaton’s filmography.
Diane Keaton first appeared in a Woody Allen production on Broadway, the play “Play It Again, Sam.” When this show was adapted to the silver screen, Diane Keaton made the transfer as well and ended up being Woody Allen’s muse for a time. The movie “Annie Hall” was written for Diane Keaton by Allen with her as the title character. It was a role that scored Keaton one of her Academy Award nominations.
“Annie Hall” featured Diane Keaton wearing fashions almost entirely inspired by menswear, a style also frequently worn by Keaton off camera as well. Throughout the 1970s, many photographs of Diane Keaton at functions feature in her menswear blazers, ties and button-up shirts. The next decade brought with it the smorgasbord of clothing that was the 1980s. Keaton was snapped about town in varying bold prints and expansive clothing such as baggy pants and billowing jackets before returning to her more tailored look in the latter half of that decade and the early 1990s.
The late 1990s and the 2000s have seen Diane Keaton transition into more subtle comedic roles with her career while maintaining a bold personal fashion sense by changing her silhouette from menswear to decidedly women’s wear. Diane Keaton still has an eye for a loud polka dot print and stripes but predominantly appears in public in a variety of skirts, blouses and dresses tightly cinched at the waist with a wide, black belt while her accessories of choice have switched from ties and necklaces to black rimmed glasses, lace gloves and glorious heels. Ironically, these fashion choices can also be seen in Diane Keaton’s character wardrobe in the 2007 film “Because I Said So,” much as her menswear fetish in the 1970s became Annie Hall’s wardrobe.
Diane Keaton’s fashion choices have transitioned throughout her solid four decades in Hollywood but so her has career. However, both have only gotten better with age.
