While it doesn't fit neatly into the "typical" Memorial Day activities, you better BUH-LIEVE I'm wedging HBO Films' Behind The Candelabra into my weekend of burgers, barbecues, and being outside. Just in case you didn't already know, Candelabra is an HBO Original biopic, directed by Steven Soderbergh and based on the memoir of the same name penned by Scott Thorson about his life with pianist/vocalist Liberace. Scott and the notoriously extravagant Liberace are played by Matt Damon and Michael Douglas, and if that alone isn't enough to get you to tune in Sunday night 9 p.m. EST, just watch the trailer and prepare to be floored by the record 30+ outfits crammed into the just-under-2-minutes-long preview.

PATCHWORK DENIM

Set in the late '70s, this flick is chock full of disco-era sartorial goodness. Take, for example, this patchwork denim leisure suit with the spread collar. Also Matt Damon's Ashton Kutcher-circa-Kelso feathered hair.

OG MODERN MATADOR

Macklemore may be touting his current steez as "modern matator", but Behind The Candelabra (especially this all-red brocade + gold filigree embellishments + GIANT ivory maribou coat) reminds us that Liberace was the first big-league SHOWMAN. *jazz hands*

HAI ROB LOWE

Oh yea, Rob Lowe is also in this movie and wears a printed banana/(Ryan Lochte) hammock at least once.

CASUAL COLOR BLOCKING

Because when else are you going to get to see Matt Damon SUPER tanned and wearing an Americana color blocked bomber jacket with rainbow sherbet striped shorts and so much unnecessary gold jewelry?

PEACOCK FEATHERS AND SELF PORTRAITS

This is kind of a two-for-one. We get Michael/Liberace in an all-over peacock feather print muumuu with a nehru collar and cropped sleeves PLUS a painted portrait of Michael as Liberace wearing red and pink TOGETHER.

SCOTT'S STAGE OUTFIT

Liberace enlists Scott to act as his stage chauffeur and suits him accordingly. BLADOW.

WOW.

And if you thought Scott's outfit was a lot, you were absolutely not prepared for this baby pink FOUR-piece (coat, vest, trousers, AND enormous double-lined and sequined cape) performance ensemble.

BACKSEAT FUR FIGHT

There's a scene wherein Liberace and Scott get into a tickle fight in the backseat of a car wearing matching fur coats. Just FYI.

BREAKFAST CHINOISERIE

Of COURSE this emerald chinoiserie get-up is what Liberace wears to eat breakfast in his own home.

BUBBLE BATH BIRTHDAY SUITS
