Mak­ing a last­ing im­pres­sion

There’s the gold lame dress she topped with a fur coat, the turquoise wrap dress she ac­ces­sorised with a Gucci python purse and Wilkin­son’s favourite: a sil­ver se­quined gown with a plung­ing neck­line.

“It was some­thing I de­signed for the film es­pe­cially for her,” he said. “We knew we had to make a big im­pact with this cos­tume in the film, and with this very dra­matic line and this fab­ric I found that had just the right amount of stretch and sheer­ness to it to re­ally hug all the right spots, I think it was a pretty mem­o­rable mo­ment.”

Wilkin­son, whose cred­its also in­clude Tron: Legacy and both parts of The Twi­light Saga: Break­ing Dawn, said he was im­pressed by the cos­tumes in fel­low Os­car con­tender The Grand­mas­ter.

“It’s set in China, in the north and south in the 1930s and 1940s, and the de­signer does such an in­cred­i­ble job of cap­tur­ing all the dif­fer­ent worlds. The beauty of all the fabrics is in­cred­i­ble, and it’s a real les­son in fab­ric and move­ment be­cause it’s a mar­tial arts movie, so ev­ery­thing flows and has such a dra­matic edge to it,” he said. “I’m so glad a film of such merit rose to the top.”

Also in­cluded in the ex­hibit: the su­per­suit from Man Of Steel, an­other Wilkin­son de­sign; a dress em­bel­lished with em­broi­dery and ap­pliques worn by Lawrence in the most re­cent Hunger Games movie; and a pair of poufy gowns from last year’s cos­tume de­sign Os­car win­ner, Anna Karen­ina. – AP

TheIn­vis­i­bleWo­man is among the five con­tenders for this year’s best Cos­tume de­sign at the Os­cars.
