I was deeply impressed and inspired by the detailed costume design and the modern charming color palette of the film. I thought it would fit in with the humorous nature of this reinterpretation if you see Emma and her many great garments as paper cut out dolls. These paper dolls have been around since the 18th century, mainly in fashion journals with their illustrated supplements. Even today they are still published in magazines and newspapers. Thus the Emma dressing doll fits the fashionable style of the 18th/19th century as well as the modern approach of the new film.
