10 Best Costumes from Hollywood Movies
This list of 10 Best Costumes of Hollywood clearly defines the quote of Marc Jacobs which says –
“Clothes mean nothing until someone lives in them!”
“Often, a costume designer’s job isn’t visible,” Hemming tells on costume design. “If you’ve done a good job, the audience won’t pay much attention to the costume; they’ll accept it as part of the character and story.”
“Joe (Director of the Film) said the dress had to be green,” says Durran, though, she adds, “we really didn’t know why.”
To attain the deeply saturated emerald hue Wright envisioned, Durran sourced three different sheer fabrics, all varying shades of green, then layered them, creating a color she otherwise could not find. Wright had the improvised swatch sent to a dye specialist, who, Durran says, “created the perfect green.”
She Mentioned in an interview that, “I feel very special. At the time, I didn’t realize how important it was. In the moment, it was just one film and we had a good time, but now it’s almost 10 years after and it was — it is — incredible. I’m so proud to have been part of it.”
John Mollo shared once George Lucas’ (Director of the Film) first instructions: Audience mustn’t consciously notice the costumes. If they do, you have gone wrong. And he never went wrong!
‘For me, the costumes should have a credible story as to why the character looks like they do in everyday life and when they transform into superhero mode,’ Lindy Hemming quoted in an interview.
Catherine Martin says, “I co-won an Oscar for Costume Design with Angus Strathie. When you make a film, you expect it won’t always work out. It’s incredible when you get the recognition that it has.”
When it came time for costume designer Michael Wilkinson to take on the challenge of updating Superman’s look for “Man of Steel,” he knew his job was an important one.
“It was a thrilling sensation to contribute to the legacy of Superman,” Wilkinson told in an Interview.
Costume designer Colleen Atwood says Edward’s striking appearance is partly Victorian. ”I pulled a lot from the 19th century,” explains Atwood, who used old machinery parts and vinyl to enhance the character’s prefab image.
Ishioka’s work on the film earned her an Oscar for costume design.
“To make a good ad, you have to approach people’s minds and bodies,” she once said.
The costumes have been nominated for Best Costume Design at Oscars and BAFTA awards – recognition that Durran describes as “such an honour”.
“What a costume designer does is a cross between magic and camouflage. They create the illusion of changing the actors into what they are not. They ask the public to believe that every time they see a performer on the screen he’s become a different person.”
