Costume Designer Leesa Evans tells us how she used clothes to tell the love story of Tom & Violet.

We know our personalities influence the way we dress, but does our relationship status have the same affect?

It certainly seems that way in The Five-Year Engagement – the romantic comedy currently in theaters starring Emily Blunt and Jason Segel. The story takes characters Tom and Violet through almost every type of love phase there is, and their styles change accordingly thanks to the work of Costume Designer, Leesa Evans. Emily Blunt & Alison Brie On Love, Exes And ... Passing Gas?

With a resume that includes films like I Love You, Man, Forgetting Sarah Marshall and the upcoming This Is 40, Evans has become pretty darn good at deciding which wardrobe statements best express love, anger, sadness and bliss – and how these morph over the course of a relationship.

In this gallery, Evans walks us through the costume choices she made for Tom and Violet's engaged days and beyond (SPOILER ALERT!). Plus, she fills us in on what it was like to dress such a funny cast:
