In front of Star Trek, designed by Michael Kaplan
I was unbelievably excited to attend the FIDM Hollywood 2010: The Art of Motion Picture Costume Design opening last Saturday!! I was recruited, along with a few other MFA Costume Designers, by Kristin Burke from Frocktalk.com to interview attendees and take photos. We got to meet so many amazing people like Audrey Fisher, designer for True Blood and Mona May, the designer for Clueless and Romy and Michelle's High School Reunion, and Monique Prudhomme, the designer for The Imaginarium of Doctor Parnassus to say the least!
The highlight of the evening was meeting Helen Butler, who had her beautiful costumes for My One And Only on display. We talked for a good length of time and her and her husband were absolutely lovely.
On top of all the amazing people there, of course gorgeous costumes on display too.
Check out how the costume designer Ann Roth made Meryl Streep so tall in Julie & Julia.
And this leather jacket from Sherlock Holmes, designed by Jenny Beavan, is rather underwhelming in person but was incredible on screen thanks to the standing of the collar and the richness of the leather.
