The Best Pastel Colour-Coordinated Films Of All Time

Satisfy your senses with our list of colour-coordinated film stills – from French 60s classics to Wes Anderson’s Isle of Dogs

1. Edward Scissorhands (1990)

From the pastel painted houses to Kim and Jim’s wardrobes – cutesy shades of pale yellow, blue and pink contrast the darkness of Edward Scissorhands.

2. Isle of Dogs (2018)

We could have added any Wes Anderson film to this list, so let’s go with his most recent release Isle of Dogs.

3. Brooklyn (2015)

Saoirse Ronan’s array of pastel outfits in Brooklyn always perfectly matched the set.

4. The Umbrellas of Cherbourg (1964)

The French 60s classic The Umbrellas of Cherbourg is probably the most colourful film you’ll ever see.

5. Grease (1978)

Whether it’s clashing pastels at the diner or pink all over in Frenchy’s “Beauty School Dropout” daydream – Grease is a colourful masterpiece.

6. Marie Antoinette (2006)

Sofia Coppola’s Marie Antoinette is an explosion of pastels from start to finish.

7. Palo Alto (2013)

Sophia’s niece Gia also has a thing for colour-coordination, most visibly in the pastel-drenched Palo Alto.

8. The Florida Project (2017)

A purple motel, rainbows and lots of ice-cream – The Florida Project is a pastel feast for the eyes.
